Green Beans

Despite the name, green beans are not considered a bean at all in terms of nutrition. Green beans are harvested with their beans in a pod before they have had a chance to mature. They are more nutritionally comparable to other pod vegetables, such as snap peas and okra. Green beans are also commonly known as snap beans and string beans. They are low in fat and high in dietary fiber, making them a great food for those looking to better manage their weight. This is a great snacking whole-food, especially for kids.
