Why I love this:  Peas are Green peas are a very good source of fiber vitamin K, manganese,  vitamin B1 and B6, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus, and folate.  They are also an excellent choice for vegan protein.  Ginger promotes digestion and helps to heal stomach issues.  Fennel is rich fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and phytonutrients.   Coconut oil and coconut milk are a great source of lauric acid……The Good Fat!
