Peas contain twice the amount of protein of most vegetables. Their fiber helps keep intestines strong and healthy and may help in lowering cholesterol. Iron and vitamin C in green peas especially help maintain your immune system. So stop throwing them at your kid sister across the table and start eating them!
Look for bright color and plumpness when selecting green peas. Because their sugar turns quickly to starch, green peas are best eaten (or extracted) as soon as possible.
