Green Peas & Carrots? Topped with butter?

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).

@Matt, beans don't seem to work well with my system. Peas, Peanuts, and Green Beans seem to be fine. But I don't think they are evil, just things that give me problems.

Peas are so YUMMY! Plus I've heard beans are much worse.

Agree, but pea vs bean, not much difference. Maybe legumes deserve another consideration. I don't think they're as problematic as made out to be.

I will add that the butter helps you absorb all that vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin.

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.
