Veggie-licious! Spring Peas with Sautéed Leeks

Let’s be honest — peas have always taken a backseat to green beans, edamame and even broccoli. They are often an afterthought and it’s just not fair.  Because peas can be delicious!

Green peas are low-calorie and an excellent source of vitamin K, fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin C and folate.

Attune Health nutritionist Lee Bell wants you to get excited for peas!
