WAC Fun Food Fact of the Month

Sugar snap peas are delicious raw or cooked.  They often come with “strings attached.”  These can be removed if they bother you.  Like most non-starchy vegetables, they are rich in nutrients, including potassium and vitamin C, and are low in calories and fat.  Try them in a salad or with dip as a snack.
