Snap peas, our personal favorite veggie.

Everyone loves a fresh tasty snack for lunch, why not snap peas. They sold like hot cakes last year, so we planted even more this year. They are a cross between a snow pea and a regular shelling pea. Very sweet and delicious. So how nutritious are they? Here's the low down on them, they are high in beta-carotene, fiber and folate. Rich in Vitamin A,C,K and B. 3/4 of a cup has only 40 calories and 2 g of protein and just 3 g of sugar.


So what if you don't want them as just a fresh snack, or you are bored of them as a fresh snack, we've got you covered there too with Roasted Sugar Snap Pea's
