CREAMY SPLIT PEA SOUP

Today is Meatless Monday, so we opted for a Creamy Split Pea Soup. Split peas are beneficial to your health, they are high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals and low in fat. Here are some of the benefits;

  • Reduce Cancer Risk: Split peas contain isoflavones (particularly Daidzein) that decrease the risk of developing certain types of cancers,
    especially breast cancer and prostate cancer. Basically, isoflavones are a type of plant estrogens, so they mimic the hormones in the body.
  • Lowers Cholesterol Levels: Split peas are a good source of soluble fiber. In fact, taking a small cup of split peas in your daily diet can provide
    approximately 65% of the daily recommended value of fiber in your diet.
  • Regulates Blood Sugar Levels: The soluble fiber present in this low glycemic food slows down the absorption of sugars and hence helps release
    glucose slowly and steadily, thereby preventing a spike in blood sugar. Yet, it provides a sufficient and steady supply of energy.
  • Improves Cardio Health: Split peas are good for your heart as they help reduce plaque in your blood vessels and hence prevent cardiovascular disease.
    Needless to say, the soluble fiber in this food lowers your blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk of developing heart disease, too.
  • Promotes Weight Control: Being rich in fiber and protein, split pea can help you a great deal in your weight loss efforts. Even a small portion of this food is
    filling as it makes you feel fuller for longer.

    I do like peas and I have eat them in soups before. I like that you added cheese, for a balance of flavours.
