Dietitian’s Top Pick: Black Eyed Peas

Happy New Year!  If you are from the South, my guess is that black-eyed peas are on your menu today.  For those of you who may not be familiar with the tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, this is done to bring good luck and prosperity in the New Year.  Thus, the Dietitian’s Top Pick today is Eden Organic Black-eyed Peas.  Maybe some of the reason they bring you good luck is because they bring your body several good nutrients which is evident when you see the NuVal score on these is 100!  Just one half cup serving contains 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and several vitamins and minerals.  Here’s to building a better basket this year!
