You’ll be ecstatic to know that I am now back in the game as a writer after a short time away from words. During my time working in advertising (6 months ago) I seemed to have plenty of time to write. I then moved on and worked in Recruitment until December. This, as you would expect, left me with around 0 days spare time per week and approximately 0g of energy to type. After getting screwed over by what/who can only be described as a ‘con-man’, I was jobless. A couple of days later I bounced back and got a job as a Barista in a lovely coffee shop. This all ended last week when I was thrown across the kitchen of said coffee shop via electric shock. Needless to say I am not returning to an environment that poses such lovely surprises. So it’s back to writing!
You may be less ecstatic to learn my return post is about peas. I’d say 60% of people I know would happily pick peas out of a pea dish – despite it being a tedious activity.
There are, however, some exceptional benefits of eating peas:
- They are high in most things EXCEPT for fat. They contain micronutrients, fibre and protein but contain very few calories.
- They contain lots of something called coumestrol which is said to help prevent stomach cancer.
- The antioxidants in them give you energy, can boost your immune system and make you look younger.
- Peas contain phytonutrients that are anti-inflammatory (preventing wrinkles, arthritis and bronchitis). Their anti-inflammatory properties also help maintain healthy blood vessels.
