Does anyone know if Wasabi peas are allowed during Phase one? From what I can find, there is no sugar, but I'm not sure.

Wasabi peas are fried green peas so definitely not P1 friendly. Most of them also have sugar and/or starchy binders so risky on P2. Sorry

Fried.... darn - I had no idea that they were fried. Here I thought that they were a healthy veggie! Guess I need to cut those out!

I was actually really surprised about the fried thing too. I just knew the coating was dicey. Reminds me of the time my DW had these peanuts she loved and I grabbed a handful, read the bag and realized they were fried. Like there isn't enough fat in peanuts already.

Atasty alternative to these would be roasted chickpeas. There's a great recipe in the Phase 1 snacks on the recipe section of this forum. And you can play around with the seasonings to suit your own taste, too.

Good to know for the future!

Also, I found on the market some Wasabi Almonds (Blue Diamond makes them). Not sure if they are OP (I think I remember the sugar content being 2g for 28 almonds) but they might be worth looking into for the same flavor add?

I may need to experiment this weekend. I have some powdered wasabi at home. Wonder if I can create wasabi chick pea crunchies?
