Coming up with meals that are both quick and nourishing can oftentimes feel like a challenge. However, with the right ingredients — and a surefire recipe like our 15-minute Peanut Noodles — you can fuel up with good-for-you food while keeping your kitchen time to a minimum. 

  • Edamame: This healthy legume is a quality source of plant protein and fiber. These two nutrients help promote fullness and meal satisfaction. The fiber feeds the good bacteria in your gut to support digestion and may also help support heart health by lowering cholesterol.
  • Peanut Butter: This humble nut butter provides both protein and healthy monounsaturated fats, the combination of which is shown to help better manage blood sugar levels that influence mood and energy.
  • Limes: This citrusy green fruit is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants that are associated with reducing inflammation and supporting your immune system. It is also great to note that the vitamin C found in limes may help with better absorbing certain nutrients like the iron found in foods like edamame and peanut butter.
