Peas in general are very high in protein which is why many vegetarians and vegans use them as a protein resource. Not only do peas come with a bunch of protein, approximately 6 grams per 1/4 cup, but they also come abundant with fiber. For every 1/4 cup of dried peas there is approximate 3 grams of fiber. These are very portable which makes them easy for traveling, they are easy to store not requiring any refrigeration and their crunchy texture make them a great addition to things like salads and snack mixes or even just by themselves. Dried peas are the perfect snack compared to other snack options which can be high in fat, sugar, and calories.
