Green Pea and Bacon Soup

Green peas, I forget about them a lot of the time. I recently read about how they are high in fiber, protein, and when fresh, vitmin C. In addition they house biotin. Biotin is a vitamin essential for hair, skin, and nails. A.K.A┬ávitamin H it’s a key element for energy production. Peas also come with a high sugar content so you will get a tiny sugar rush to jump start your metabolism. They have a sweet yet bland flavor. However you use peas ,dress them up with a “fatty” “rich” flavor. They just lend themselves to this pallet so nicely. So for this soup, use bacon, duck, seafood, butter. It compliments the indulgent, be sure to balance out you meal with fresh flavors and protein. If you feel full-which if you’ve cooked the soup correctly you should :) -may I suggest an orange or some fruit. Fruit after dinner always assists in digestion, and the acid in citrus can help cut through your meal. One small cup of coffee can assist as well. Indulge, Enjoy dinner! Happy New Year. 2013
