How much peas do I need to eat to get 15g of protein?

  • You would need to eat approximately 3 cups of cooked sweet green peas** to get 15g of protein.  You’d also be consuming about 32g carbs and 193 calories.
  • Alternately, you would need to eat approximately 1 cup of split green peas** to get about 15g of protein. You’d also be consuming about 40g carbs, and 220 calories.

Although these are healthy food options, they aren’t ideal for when you just want pure protein and can’t manage to eat that much volume. Pea protein powder provides 15-16g of protein per scoop (approximately 1/4 cup).

**Please note: pea protein is made from dried split peas, not sweet peas.
