Edamame is a Side Dish in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!.

Description[edit | edit source]

Edamame ("stem bean") is often credited as being the world's first diet food. With waistlines expanding in 13th century Japan, local entrepreneurs set out to capitalize on Japan's obesity epidemic. Numerous exercise plans were introduced, but to the country's dismay, the nation grew fatter.

Finally, Tatsumi Saito, a young businessman whose company specialized in playing cards, baseball teams and love hotels, came to the rescue. Noting that "waiting" was a key component of cards, baseball and making love, Saito hypothesized that by engineering a food that required a significant amount of time to eat, individuals would get tired of eating and consume less food.

Saito was right, and by the end of the decade, the Japanese government declared the nation's obesity epidemic over. Since the 1970s, doctors have attributed edamame to Japan's exceptional life expectancy.

Today, edamame beans are enjoyed throughout the world by health conscious individuals, and those with inordinate amounts of free time.
