The frozen food section of the grocery store can be massively intimidating. There are shelves upon shelves of easy-to-prepare foods you can buy frozen, and while some of those items are popular to grab—like bags of frozen fruit for smoothies, frozen pizza, or one of these healthy frozen dinners—there are a few underrated frozen food items that are typically ignored. One of those items, in particular, can easily help boost the nutrition of your home-cooked meals. Which is why we deemed frozen peas as the most underrated frozen food item at the grocery store.Between the nutritional value, the cheap price, and the convenience of frozen peas, you would think more people would stock up their freezer with bags of peas. If you're not one to grab a bag of frozen peas on a regular basis, here's why you should start. And for more healthy eating tips, be sure to check out our list of 21 Best Healthy Cooking Hacks of All Time.Why frozen peas are the most underrated frozen foodFirst, let's look at the nutritional value. A typical 1/2 cup serving of frozen peas can provide you with 4 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, as well as all kinds of vitamins and nutrients including vitamins A, K, and C. It's only 11 grams of carbohydrates, and clocks out at only 62 calories per a 1/2 cup serving.What's particularly important to note is the fiber and the protein content of frozen peas. Getting your daily amount of fiber is incredibly important for maintaining weight loss, along with your overall health. The daily recommended intake for fiber is 38 grams for men and 25 grams for women. Most people don't get that much fiber in a day—they average somewhere between 10 and 15. So finding ways to boost your fiber count throughout the day is important.Getting 4 grams of protein is also high coming from a vegetable. A 1/2 cup serving of this underrated frozen food provides you with almost as much protein that you would find in a large egg (which includes 5 grams of protein), and the same amount as a tablespoon of peanut butter. This is especially helpful for anyone looking to rely more on plant-based proteins in their diet.RELATED: Your ultimate restaurant and supermarket survival guide is here!How to add frozen peas into your mealsPeas can be an easy way to add even more fiber and protein into your savory meals.

Today is Election Day and with tensions running high, Americans are desperately seeking out sources of comfort. And what could be more comforting than a cake recipe? There's one vintage recipe that has especially gained traction on the internet over the past few days and it's aptly named election cake.Technically known as Hartford Election Cake, the recipe first appeared in a 1796 cookbook by Amelia Simmons titled "American Cookery". Simmons' book is the first known cookbook written by an American in the United States, but some believe this cake may be even older, dating further back than the Declaration of Independence. (Related: 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback)The inception of the election cake, as the New York Times reports, stems from the springtime elections for governor and other offices held in towns around Connecticut during the late 18th century. By May, representatives from various parts of the colony would gather in Hartford for the night-long ballot counting, and the cake would be served to them at some point during these events (the specifics vary and are unclear). The recipe for the cake and its story were first brought to the Times in 1988 and adapted from Marion Cunningham's book, "The Fannie Farmer Baking Book." (Related: Here's How You Can Score Free Food By Voting This Year.)So, what exactly is the Hartford Election Cake made with? As far as texture and appearance go, it's a cross between a panettone, which is an Italian sweet bread, and a dense fruit cake. According to the New England Historical Society, some of the first election cakes were said to have clocked in at 12 pounds. The recipe calls for a yeasted dough made with creamy buttermilk, as well as warming spices such as cinnamon, cloves, mace, and nutmeg. Then, the cake is studded with raisins and chopped pecans.The cake can either be enjoyed with a cocktail as you watch the election coverage this evening or in the morning with a piping hot cup of Joe. Much like the ballot counting process that occurred in the late 18th century, this year's count will likely extend beyond Election Day. Until the results are posted, why not have something sweet and satiating to dip your fork into?For more content on old recipes that we want to make a comeback, be sure to check out 50 Vintage Recipes to Bring Back This Spring.
