Sweet Pea

26 Jul

Sweet Peas are GORGEOUS flowers, don’t ya think?

Not only do peas have these amazing pink petals, but they also have more protein than 1/4 cup of almonds, or a tablespoon of peanut butter–WHOAH.  I didn’t even believe that fun fact at first but it’s true, because a little known doctor named WebMD told me 😀 They’re so teensy, where does all the protein go?!

So, the question is, how do you get some of these little green guys into your stomach without feeling like you’re eating baby food? Drum roll, please…
