to feed a pea or not?

Sorry to the guys who are reading this for the second time but decided to post this question under a new thread.

Everyone seems to have very strong opposite opinions about feeding a bit of crushed pea to bettas once a week. Any thoughts?

If I did go for the pea, does this schedule seem ok?

Monday : fast
Tuesday: 3 pellets
Wednesday: crushed pea
Thursday: 2 pellets
Friday: 3 Pellets
Saturday: 2-3bloodworms (depending on size)
Sunday: 2 pellets

My guy is quite small and he is VERY active. I only introduced blood worms for the first time yesterday and he absolutely loved them.

I gave a couple of small pieces of pea to my betta once a week, he liked it, I don't see the harm and it can help clean them out. I gave the pea one day and fasted him the next, but it probably doesn't matter either way.
Every living thing is significant.
