Vegetarian Nutrition: No Wonder They Say Eat Your Peas!

Frozen peas are great to have in the freezer. For vegetarians, protein is something we are always seeking and it isn’t always easy to come by “quickly”. I read the back of the plastic bag of frozen peas and two-thirds a cup has the following: NO saturated fat, NO transfat, No cholesterol, 4 grams of protein, 35% of daily Vitamin A needs and 25% of our Vitamin C needs. WOW! That’s a lot of helpful vegetable protein and nutrition and two-thirds cup is nothing. So throw frozen peas into your veggie soups, stir fry, fried rice and matzo ball soup. You’ll be glad you did.
