Diet Secret Weapon: Eat Your Peas!

Diet Secret Weapon: PeasPerhaps this diet secret weapon is something your mother told you to eat when you were little. Believe it or not, today’s diet secret of the day is, “eat your peas!”

Diet Secret Weapon: PeasI happened to see this on Spark People so I did a little more research. I must admit that I had no idea that peas were so full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. Peas are often an easy way to fit get your kids to eat something healthy when all they want is chicken nuggets or hot dogs. Have you kids try frozen sweet peas as a special treat. Make eating them fun by sliding peas on each tine of their forks.
Here is some more interesting information about peas to inspire you to include them in your weekly meal plan.
  • Peas have unique phytonutrients in green peas also provide us with key antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Recent research has shown that green peas are a reliable source of omega-3 and omega-6 fats 
  • Their fiber aids your intestinal track and may help lower cholesterol.
Here is one use of peas that I really enjoy: Mix them with chicken, diced onions and almonds to make a delicious, and colorful chicken salad. They are also yummy mixed in with onions and bacon in an omelet.

Gee, all the diets say to limit the amount of peas you eat. Say their fattening! That's Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig. I think they're a starch. I love them.
