Peas

When you were a kid, you probably heard your mom tell you to "eat your peas."<br>
<br>
She was right, as these jade pearls are packed with nutrition. Whatever pea you prefer -- garden peas (fresh from the pod,) snow peas (flatter pods,) snap peas (plump pods,) or dried peas (from field peas that are less sweet) -- know that they are plump with vitamins A,C, K and B, minerals, and fiber and protein. Studies have linked diets rich in green and yellow vegetables, including green peas, with heart disease prevention. Peas also supply a significant quantity of the eye-healthy compounds beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin.
