My 5 year old likes to cook. He helped me put several items on a roasting pan...one of which was frozen peas....while it took the carrots and other veggies longer to roast, I left the peas in with them...the peas were crunchy and delicious. Now I roast them all by themselves with a little seasoning and olive oil!....I love potato chips...so these peas are my new chip!

Green peas slow down the appearance of glucose in the blood & help keep the energy levels steady. Being low in calories, green peas are good for those who are trying to lose weight. A 100 calorie serving of green peas contain more protein than an egg. It is important for a diabetic to go easy with vegetables, such as beet, carrots, peas, beans and starchy vegetables, potatoes. Eat in moderation.
Use ground turkey instead of ground beef. Mash potatoes, use fat-free milk instead of whole milk & trans-fat-free margarine instead of butter. Mash steamed cauliflower into your potatoes. Steam green beans & season with a little curry & pepper, then top with a few slivered almonds instead of butter, or do a stir fry with any combination of green beans, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, onion, snow peas, red, yellow, green peppers, baby corn and then sauté in low-sodium soy sauce with garlic. Enjoy
