Peas have developed a bad reputation. Most kids detest peas, but I don’t understand why: they’re sweet, their small, and they fit wonderfully in your spoon if you want to shoot it at your older brother (though, I don’t suggest the last usage, unless you want to be grounded or miss out on dessert). Are you a fan of peas?
Peas (or more specifically pea sprouts) are called “The Perfect Food.” Why? Pea sprouts are a complete protein, serving to build muscle tissue. Pea sprouts are also high in fiber and beta-carotene, which protects vision and creates an antioxidant effect against many forms of cancer.
