When we go to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings (the Saturday mornings that we can actually get our act together and go), Q heads straight for the last row so that we can buy a baggie of sprouts. She always does a taste test to decide between the snow pea sprouts and sunflower sprouts. Sometimes she chooses one or the other, sometimes a little of both.
This past trip she spied a huge mound of snow peas in the first row and filled our bag by the handful. She’s been munching on them for snack.
Snow peas are a really good snack, especially fresh, crisp ones straight from the farm. And they are really low in carbs.
According to Calorie King, a serving of 10 pea pods (1.2 ounces) has 2.6 grams of carbs.
100 grams of pea pods have 7.6 grams of carbs.
And the carb factor is 0.076.
