If there’s one thing you should have in your freezer at all times when following a healthy eating plan, it’s frozen peas.
The humble pea can be the star of so many snacks and meals, and they add a great splash of colour too.
When you are raising a family and trying to lose pregnancy weight, it can be tough to get healthy meals on the table that everyone will eat.
Enter frozen peas – most kids will happily devour peas so why not try some of our favourite pea-based recipes below.
1. Pea, Cheese & Lemon Fritters
Here’s a budget friendly recipe that’s perfect for a snack; or dress it up with a side salad for lunch. Even fussy eaters have been known to devour these.
2. Parmesan And Pea Frittata
If you’ve got eggs, cheese, and peas you’ve got yourself a healthy eating dinner. Great warm for dinner or cold for a picnic lunch, use any leftover veggies you have to hand.
3. Creamy Pea, Asparagus and Mint Soup
We love the idea of making a big pot of soup on a Sunday afternoon and using it for a healthy lunch throughout the week. Just reheat and eat!
4. Healthy Chicken and Pineapple Fried Rice
Use up the ingredients in your fridge and pantry for this healthy version of a take away favourite. Packed with flavour, this reheats well the next day (or freeze leftovers for another meal).
5. Aromatic Spaghetti with Flaked Salmon and Peas
Using tinned salmon, pasta and frozen peas – you can make this dish when you have next to nothing in the fridge! Instead of grating the zucchini you could also try using a spiraliser if you have one to make zucchini noodles to add to the spaghetti.
6. Smashed Peas on Sourdough
You don’t need to cut out bread completely on the Lose Baby Weight plans, you just need to use good quality bread a bit less often. Feel free to rename this for the kids – Monster Mash Toast anyone?
