A Plethora of P’s / #27: Peas

June 27, 2011 § 6 Comments

proactively punctuating life with the plausible, powerful possibilities of positive thought presented through a plethora of “P’s”.

Peas may be petite, but they sure pack a big positive punch.

Did you know that peas have twice the protein of most vegetables? They also help lower cholesterol, strengthen the immune system, maintain level glucose levels in the blood to keep energy levels consistent, promote healthy bones and boost cardiovascular health. Not to mention their high vitamin C content is a great natural antioxidant that protects the body from cell damage. Plus, they happen to be yummy, especially fresh from a garden.

So, do like Mom said, and eat your peas!

    My grandparents lived on a farm in Illinois. One of my chores was to pick and shell the peas. You are so right…they are so sweet and delicious fresh from the garden. They’re even yummy when they’re raw! Thanks for bringing back some fond memories. “Pea”ce!

    I like peas. My first major gardening success was raising Snow Peas from seeds. I have a picture of me holding one somewhere. And you’re right, they’re best eaten right off the vine! Thanks Patricia for reminding me of a personal success first thing Monday morning!
