"I always eat my peas with honey: 
I've done it all my life. 
They do taste kind of funny but 
it keeps them on my knife."
-Winnie The Pooh

The refrigerator light goes on...

Just a touch of olive oil and honey makes simple frozen peas rich and elegant. Super simple and really delicious. I like to add a lot of pepper to this it really spices it up.

Legumes and Heart Disease

There is very good evidence that eating legumes lowers the risk for heart disease. Research by a group looking at almost 10,000 men published in November 2001 showed that even one serving of lentils or chick peas a week lowers the risk of heart disease. And the best part is that the more you eat, the lower the risk. Eating legumes 4 times or more per week reduces the risk of heart disease by as much as 22%.
