peas for my betta?

I've read on here some mention of feeding bettas peas. What are the benefits of feeding a betta peas? How do you prepare them?

Boil them 3-5 minutes, temove the shell and smash into small enough pieces for the betta to eat.

The peas give the betta some vegetable matter that isn't so stuffed full of protein and fiber so it can stay regular and not get constipated and stressed.

I don't even go to the extreme that f4a does. I use frozen peas, thaw, and (reverting to my early childhood) smash them between my fingers. Oh, yeh, flashbacks to my childhood, except I don't get yelled at for smashing my peas now. lol

Once a week as a preventative is fine. If they get bloated then they can be fed as necessary to help loosen him up a bit.
