I just read this article:

Natural Face Life - Green Peas

They advise that there are many vitamins and minerals found in the green pea that will help w/ skin health.

So now that its after Christmas, and if you had ham like we did, use that ham bone and make some split pea soup!! Mmmmm!

Er, that link should read "Natural Face Lift" not "Life!" I'm still tired and recovering from Christmas.

Spotty I think the website changed the link:

I didn't know that peas were so good for you - but I suppose it should be obvious as they are a green vegetable! Split Pea Soup sounds delicious right now.

The recipes sound awesome. I've always loved peas but who knew they were that good for you? Just wait now all of the cosmetics companies will introduce skincare with peas in it.

I hate peas! Always have, even though I now force myself to eat them (1) for my health, and (2) so my kids won't automatically hate them - but they do anyway :P

Wake me when they figure out that champagne and ripple chips are good for skin too (though not necessarily enjoyed together).

I've never really cared about peas either way - I don't find them particularly bad or particularly good. They don't taste like much. Peas are my Dad's favourite vegetable, and I've always thought that it was a weird choice for a favourite.

champagne.... on Dec 29, 2010 @ 09:27 pm

@mamaluv I have been told that champagne is good for your stomach because it's fermented.

good enough for me....

Antioxidants on Dec 31, 2010 @ 05:07 am

Just like anything else that's supposed to be good for you and reduce aging, peas are apparently also antioxidants (no surprise there!)

According to this article, http://www.healthaliciousness.com/blog/Antioxidant-capacity-String-Beans-Winged-Beans-French-Beans-Snow-Peas.php, here are the "antioxidant scores" for the following types of peas/string bean related veggies, and it looks like stringed beans are even better for you than peas!:

  1. String Beans - 85
  2. Winged Beans - 75
  3. French Beans - 72
  4. Snow Peas - 55
