I love this video. Jessica is my niece, so when you watch it, you'll see the genetic connection between us. We embrace our awkwardness. I mean, when the pan refuses to stay on the stove and the dog hair finds its way to the skillet, screw it...life's too short for perfection.
Now, about those snow peas...
~If you buy them in a grocery store, you should store them unwashed in the fridge.
~Instead of covering in plastic, cover with a paper towel or dish towel to make them last longer. This works great for leafy greens too. I remove the plastic from my heads of lettuce and wrap them in a dish towel and it stays fresh twice as long.
~Snow peas are an excellent source of Vitamin C and a good source of manganese and iron.
Vitamin C. Though it's ability to cure the common cold is still to be determined, it is believed to lower the risk of some cancers. I'll take that cure over the cold any day! (Harvard Health Publications)
Manganese. It helps form bones and digest carbs. (Harvard Health Publications)
Iron. The nutrient, not the pumping kind, helps with that essential life structure, hemoglobin- AKA blood. (Harvard Health Publications)
