More Peas!

Is it weird that vegetables excite me? Wait, don't answer that!

But seriously, I love veggies, particularly green ones. So I'm crazy about the products sold by Mann's in the produce section of the grocery store. They are convenient and healthy. I frequently use the broccoli slaw or rainbow slaw for salads, stir fries and wraps.

But now I have a new favorite...their snap peas! They make a perfect, portable snack.

They are sweet, crisp and delicious and super healthy. A whole 8oz bag is just 100 calories and has 5g of fibre and 5g of protein as well as more than a third of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A, two-thirds of your recommended daily intake of vitamin c, and 15% of your recommended daily intake of calcium and iron.

Granted they are not cheap - I paid $2.99, but snap peas can usually be purchased in bulk for less at most grocery stores or markets. Get crunching!
