Peas For Winter Diet | Health Benefits Of Eating Green Peas (Matar)
Peas are truly one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables on this planet. Matar is known to be rich in fibre and iron - both of which are essential nutrients for the body. Fibre-rich peas thus can also keep us satiated for longer, thus helping with weight loss. A single serving of peas supplies nearly half the daily need of Vitamin C, according to the book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing. This helps in maintaining good hair and skin, as well as building immunity against diseases in the winter season.
