Easy Vegan Split Pea Soup

Easy Vegan Split Pea Soup

This is always a great time of year to make soup, but this soup is great year round because it's packed with nutrition!  It's great for the endurance athlete because Split Pea Soup is packed with Potassium, Carbohydrates, Fiber and Protein for fast recovery and energy.  I also like the fact that it has some great vitamin and minerals such as Iron, Calcium, Magnesium and the all vital Vitamin B-6.  Remember B-6 helps the body to maintain a healthy nervous system, to make hemoglobin that carries oxygen in red blood cells throughout the body, to provide energy from the food that we eat, to balance blood sugar levels, to act as a natural pain treatmentto boost mood, and also to create antibodies that our immune system uses to protect us.  This is an easy recipe anyone can do.  Just chop up ingredients, toss in a slow cooker and enjoy when you get home from work or training session.  It really is simple and taste great! If you want some left overs for a few days or have a large family, just double all the ingredients.  Freezes well too.
