Give peas a chance!

I'm finally in pre-maintenance, and have added peas and carrots to my diet (rung 9 on the carb ladder, though missed out 6). Oh, the glory that is tiny frozen peas! Just ate a plate of curried mince 'n mushrooms, with added petits pois. Each little green morsel was a mini flavour bomb. I would never have thought that I'd come to view peas as a luxury food item - but it seems I do. I would - totally honestly - rather have a spoonful or two of peas with some butter on them than a jammy doughnut (which is what my DH ate in front of me earlier).

Tomorrow, I must go carrot shopping

I can eat peas and even half a potato occasionally and it doesn't affect my weight at all!Love peas! Carrots, not so much.

Glad you are enjoying. The title of this thread sounds like that bumper sticker that says "Pray for Whirled Peas."

Sorry, Ginger, couldn't resisit.
