Did you know that there is a holiday that has roots in old cultures all around the world and that is New Year’s Eve? It is one of the few holidays that many of us have not seen. Many of us have either forgotten about it or we are lucky enough to live in a time where we don’t have to celebrate it. What if you could learn how to enjoy eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Eve? Let’s see if we can help you with that.
Black Eyed Peas are very common on many foods. They are usually in the back of peoples mouths before they know it. They are served at many restaurants as part of a wide variety of dishes. This can be quite disconcerting for many of us when we hear that they are used as a food to attract wealth and success.
So, what is so special about blackeyed peas that makes them worthy of a meal with family, friends, neighbors or co-workers? Is it because of their appearance? That is certainly possible, but most agree that they are not the best use of their time. When we eat something that looks good but is not actually very healthy, our stomachs start working hard in an attempt to get rid of the food. The chemicals in these peas may have some affect on our digestive systems but most agree that they are more of a health hazard than anything else.
Have you ever wondered why in fact do you eat blackeyed peas on New Year’s Eve? The reason is that they are extremely rich in minerals and vitamins. They are full of beta-carotene, iron, copper, phosphorous, magnesium, sodium, potassium, thiamine, niacin and folic acid and all of these minerals work together in the body to help promote and build strong bones, teeth, hair, organs and tissues.
There is a popular myth that New Year’s Eves are made up of foods that have been banned from the diet. This is not true. While it is not good to overeat, many people believe that they can consume all the goodies that they want on this day. While it is true that you do not eat black Eyed Peas on New Year’s Eve you do eat foods that have high nutritional value. The only problem is that most of us do not eat these foods in the proper manner.
The first thing that you need to do is eat your peas raw. There are several different variations of black bean that you can eat including; kidney bean, chickpea, Lima bean, yellow bean and black (or red) bean. These varieties are very different than the common version and the way that they are cooked can vary dramatically. By eating the beans raw you will receive the fiber, minerals, vitamins and protein that you require.
If you do not like to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Eve then there are other options that you may be interested in trying. There are a number of different smoothies that you can make. Some of the flavors include strawberry, carrot, yogurt, pineapples and much more. All of these recipes use the wonderful benefits of the protein that is in the beans and give you an option that you can enjoy during the holiday season.
Finally, if you really want to avoid black-eyed peas on New Year’s Eve then you may want to consider making some other type of a soup or stew. You can make a delicious healthy meal that has a fantastic flavor and you can do it at home. The great thing about making your own soups and stews is that they are healthier for you and they usually take less time to prepare. This will leave you with extra time to enjoy celebrating and getting your family together for the big day.
