The Green peas are a legume and so a very good source of protein. A cup of raw green peas packs 30% of an adults daily fiber requirement and about half the supply of the good old Vitamin C. In addition to that they are also a good source of vitamin K which you know is great for your bone function.
I don’t think I have ever looked at peas with more reverence than I do now. I do tend to put them in most of my quick fix dishes as they don’t really need much cooking. But until now, I just thought they were just a convenient food that tasted good too. Not any more. the power food blog group changed how I think about food.
For this week’s power food blog group, I chose to feature this twist on the pea salad. Quick ,Easy, Delicious!
38 Power Foods blog group focuses on one ingredient each week taking inspiration from the book ; Power Foods: 150 Delicious Recipes with the 38 Healthiest Ingredients from the editors of the whole living magazine.
