This week we celebrate green peas, another of our favorite spring vegetables. Green peas are a great addition to your menu because in addition to their concentration of vitamins and minerals they also provide the carotenoid phytonutrients, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are known to promote vision and eye health. Not only are green peas highly nutritious, their wonderfully sweet flavor will appeal to everyone's taste buds, making them a favorite addition to your entire family's Healthiest Way of Eating.
