Snow Peas (not to be confused with snap peas) are a garden fresh variety of pea, meaning you can eat it uncooked while still in the pod. Most often they’re removed from the garden while still unripe, leaving then crunchy but still tender. Eaten raw, they’re a great high-protein snack. They’re packed with Vitamin A, and C, potassium, dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, folic acid and small levels of healthy fats. Best part? They’re only a little over 1 calorie PER POD and have essentially no cholesterol! They’re a great natural food medicine to help with a number of health conditions, as well as general immune system boosting, digestion, bone mineral density and weight loss.
Wash thoroughly, as with all produce. Snow Peas can be eaten raw. You can also cook in the shell or shell the peas, by simply frying them in a pan with oil and seasoning. Even while cooked lightly, they retain most of their nutritional value.
