Talk about your power snack. These mighty morsels are made with roasted soybeans, a.k.a. soynuts, which have loads more energizing protein than real nuts but with all the satisfying crunch and salty taste.
Nibbling on them just might bring you good fortune, too, at least if you follow the tradition of the Japanese during their annual rite of spring "Bean Throwing Ceremony," when soy nuts (the "lucky beans") are tossed out of their windows to banish evil spirits from their homes and tossed back inside for the opposite reason.
Or you could skip that part and just eat one soy nut for each year of your age, plus one more for the year ahead-an excellent practice not only for good luck but good health. You're no doubt aware that soybeans are nutritional powerhouses, but soy nuts have even more concentrated nutrients, including more protein per serving than red meat, and with plenty of heart-healthy omega-3s to fight inflammation, reduce the risk of cancer, and boost brain power.
