Dolly is grateful for how God’s love continues to daily transform her. She is also thankful for her best friend/husband, and their answer-to-prayer daughter. Some of her favorite things include conversing with God, sharing a meal with her family and friends, reading anything true and encouraging, and appreciating God’s artistic design displayed in nature.

Hello My Freshly Brewed Life readers! I am excited today to introduce you to one of my favorite food friends. If you befriend my humble companion, then you become healthier. Drum roll, please…
Yes, good ole’ fashioned fiber. This easy recipe is high in fiber and delicious.
My friend Christy gave me this recipe for Split Pea Soup. I will give you her original recipe and how I have modified it.
Split peas are a great source of soluble fiber which helps “lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels.” One-fourth cup of dried split peas will give you:
- a whopping 12 g of fiber
- 12 g of protein, and
- 10% of the RDA of iron.
For more on the benefits of eating fiber daily, read this Mayo Clinic article on Dietary Fiber: Essential for a healthy diet.
We enjoy this soup for lunch or dinner with a slice of whole-grain bread. Hope you like this soup and that it becomes a delicious way to incorporate more fiber into your daily diet.
Thanks, Barbie, for letting me share this recipe as part of your Healthy Living Series.
