  • More than 16% daily fiber!
    Fiber is an extremely important part of your daily diet. Its best known benefit is its ability to help keep our bowels moving. Eating enough fiber will help prevent constipation. The added benefit is that it also plays a role in protecting against diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. If that isn’t enough reason to get a daily dose of fiber, it also helps with weight management by helping to keep you fuller longer.The best sources of fiber are whole foods, not processed foods to which fiber has been added.
  • This product is minimally processed
    Minimally processed products usually contain a very short ingredient list. For the most part, they are comprised of simple ingredients that you would have found in your great grandmother's kitchen 100 years ago.
  • A naturally good source of Vitamin C
    The vitamin C in this product comes from real food, not as a fortified ingredient. This is important because it means you are getting hundreds of additional nutrients from the real food.
  • Give peas a chance!
    Peas are part of the legume family. They are chock full of nutrients. Boiling the peas actually increases the nutrient bioavailability. A 1 cup serving has less than 150 calories but comes with the following benefits:9 grams of fiber (over a third of daily requirement)9 grams of proteinalmost no fat; 38% of the daily value for vitamin C; 26% vitamin A; 12% potassium; 42% manganese; 52% vitamin K. Peas are sweet too! You'll get 9 grams of sugar (2 and 1/4 teaspoons) per serving. They also come with 7 grams of starch. The total carb count is therefore 25 grams (9 fiber, 9 sugar, 7 starch).Is this a big deal?Not at all. The high fiber count makes the sugar and starch a non-issue for most people.At least by our book, peas are a wonderful food, whether eaten straight from the pod, or as part of a tasty dish.Fresh peas are rarely seen in supermarkets, but are available in farmers markets in the spring. You options are to buy frozen or canned. We recommend frozen peas because canned peas tend to be high in sodium. That said, even the frozen peas may have added sodium. Before use, rinse the peas in order to reduce the sodium count.
  • Frozen veggies - healthier than fresh?
    Generally speaking, frozen veggies have the same amount of nutrients as fresh veggies, and sometimes they have even MORE.This is because frozen veggies are picked at their peak. They are then immediately blanched and frozen. Thus most of their vitamins and minerals are well preserved. In contrast, fresh veggies may have already been sitting on the supermarket shelf for a while before going onto your plate. They also may not have been picked when ripe.In any case: fresh or frozen, eat veggies to your heart's content. They are filled with vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Any veggie that makes it onto your plate is a good veggie!
  • Organic? No need for the "Clean 15"
    If you plan on shelling out extra $$$ for organic produce, save your cash when it comes to these fruits and vegetables. They either don't get sprayed too much, or don't retain substantial pesticide residue when you eat them. Here's the list: Asparagus, Avocados, Bananas, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Corn, Eggplant, Garlic, Kiwi, Mangoes, Onions, Papaya, Pineapple, Peas, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Watermelon
