split pea soupSplit Pea Soup is one of the staples in our house. Made by simmering dries split peas along with carrots and onions, the split pea soup is a nutrient-dense meal, rich in taste and full of health benefits.

Dried peas, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only can dried peas help lower cholesterol, they are also of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal.

green split peasA single cup of cooked dried peas in your daily diet provides 65.1% of the recommended daily fiber, 710 milligrams of potassium, 16 grams of protein, good to excellent amounts of five important minerals, three B-vitamins, — all with virtually no fat and only 232 calories.

As if this weren’t enough, dried peas also feature isoflavones (notably daidzein). Isoflavones are phytonutrients that can act like weak estrogens in the body and whose dietary consumption has been linked to a reduced risk of certain health conditions, including breast and prostate cancer.
