What to Do with Green Peas – Real Food Basics

Green Peas

Green Peas are often easily liked by people of all ages. Steamed peas are seen on the dinner table at lots of families with small children as the parents know that it’s something that their children will have an easy time enjoying. Maybe it’s the slightly sweet, not too strong flavor, or maybe it’s the fact that green peas are really fun for a toddler to eat with their hands or try to pick up with their fork…either way, peas are great to always have in your freezer so you know you have an easy vegetable on hand for days you haven’t planned dinner in advance.

I don’t know if it’s just me and my nieces and nephews, but we all LOVE frozen peas!! Frozen peas are such a fun treat to get either while waiting for dinner to get done or even for after dinner like a dessert. Frozen peas both give you all the nutrients from peas, while also being refreshing and reminding you of ice cream. It’s great snack on warm days as well!

What to Do with Eggplant – Real Food Basics


Eggplant, or aubergine as it’s called in most of the world, is one of few fruits that you should never eat raw (yes it’s actually a fruit, not a vegetable!). Because of it’s unique skin, eggplant is one produce that is not as important to buy organic.

Eggplant is often called “poor man’s meat” because when cooked well it has a little similar taste to meat. My favorite meat & eggplant combination is ground meat and cubed eggplant, fried together with chopped onion in coconut oil. Add some salt, pepper and a bit of cinnamon (sounds weird but it’s really good!). You can also add some cayenne pepper. Serve this dish together with cauliflower rice or add some cooked beans and eat it with a spoon. The most important thing i that you try eggplant with ground meat, because it’s really good!! :)
