Although we commonly count peas as vegetables, they are actually a legume, just like lentils. An excellent source of carotenoid antioxidants and vitamins C and K, they are also rich in protein and fibre.

Did you know that quality green peas, when properly frozen, contain more vitamins than "fresh" peas that have been stored in the refrigerator for a few days?

Did you know you should aim to eat fish at least twice a week? In the Czech Republic, we consume less than a third of this.
