In early times, snow peas were grown mostly for their dry seeds. Green "garden" pea, eaten immature and fresh, were an innovative luxury of Early Modern Europe. Snow pea is most commonly the small spherical seed of the pod fruit Pisum sativum. Each pod contains several peas, which can be green or yellow. Snow peas can be a side dish, part of an appetizer or a colorful part of a main dish. Though carrots are primarily eaten for the roots, it wasn’t always this way. Carrots also weren’t always orange. German inhabitants started growing carrots for their highly fragrant leaves and seeds. Interestingly, it’s only in the last 50 years that people started eating raw carrots. The taste difference between the varieties of colored (or rainbow) carrots is subtle. You may experience a slight variation in taste that shows up when they’re consumed raw.
Snow peas are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, folic acid, and small levels of healthy fats. These pods are also very low in calories, with slightly over 1 calorie per pod. They also lack cholesterol, making them a filling, yet nutritious dietary component. Carrots provide the highest content of vitamin A of all the vegetables. Moreover, the vitamins B6, C and K contained into carrots maintain nerve function, a healthy immune system, skin, teeth, gums, tendons, ligaments and strong bones.
