Versatile and one of the easiest vegetables to prepare, snow peas can be enjoyed on their own, added to a salad or added to your favorite dish. Snow peas are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, iron and folic acid. Snow peas are also very low in calories, with slightly over 1 calorie per pod. They also lack cholesterol, making them a filling, and nutritious dietary supplement. Mann’s Fresh Vegetables Snow peas on their own are one of my favorite afternoon snacks due to their extremely low level of fat and calories. If you want to cook them, the easiest way to do so is to saute them in a frying pan with a little virgin olive oil or add them to a recipe as I have done. Tonight for dinner I made a healthy smoked salmon pasta with snow peas.
