Steve Parker, M.D.

Black-eyed peas on New Year's Day seems to be a Southern U.S. tradition. In parts of Italy, they eat lentils instead (lentils have the shape of a coin).

Thanks for providing the nutritional analysis. Very helpful to me.

I think it was even better on day 2. Delicious!


Dr. Steve--You're right. It is very southern. I'm from the Ozarks (southwest Missouri) where we are mother southern than northern in our eating. Sometimes that's good and sometimes that's bad. We love lentils too!

Aunti M--I thought so too!

The Spanish version is called Cristos e Moros
(Christians and Moors). It's black beans and rice. you should try it some time. Same tradition. Just a different cultural approach.
