Sugar snap peas can be steamed, pureed or chopped up and added to salads, stir-fry, even a small serving of pasta. If you are looking to improve your health, sugar snap peas are good options to include in your diet....They are good to help control cholesterol and blood-glucose levels...they have 35 calories per 3-ounce serving, which is about 1 cup. They are high in vitamins and the fiber will help keep you feeling full and reduce your temptation to snack between meals.
Do your best to curb your eating about two to three hours before you go to bed. Try and stick with water/calorie free beverages after dinner. If you really feel you need to munch, try veggies, like bell pepper strips or sugar snap peas!
