Snow peas have flat, edible pods (no shelling required!), plus a sweet flavor and crisp texture that make them great for snacking. And since almost 25 percent of a snow peas’ calories come from sugar-stabilizing protein, eating one cup -- raw or cooked -- shuts down the munchies for two hours straight, say researchers at the University of Toronto, Canada. Chefs also love to toss them into their stir-fries and you should try tossing them into your sauté dishes too.
