I have been literally having green peas, carrots and butter for breakfast, lunch and dinner for about 2 months already. I haven't eaten this in a couple of years and taking a break from the ratatouille and spinach was all I needed. However, it would be great to hear your thoughts on the paleo-ness of green peas?
I have no tolerence problems, and carbs are limited to 150 (at most, excluding fibers).

peas are, botanically speaking, legumes. Thus many will tell you they are shunned and totally un-paleo.
I think that is ridiculous. Peas are literally loaded with nutrients, a great vegetable source of iron and calcium. A true, fully bio-available source of copper. Fresh peas are not the same as dried kidney beans. I say, as long as you tolerate them, eat em up.
