Did you know?

Green beans are a great source of a variety of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, K, and B6. They’re also a great way to get more fiber and protein into your diet, a must if you’re vegetarian or vegan. Green beans have pretty high levels of flavonoids, antioxidants commonly found in fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids have anti-thrombotic effects, meaning they’ll help prevent blood clots in arteries and veins. As a result, it’s worth getting more green beans in your diet if you’re worried about cardiovascular disease.

We’re big fans of green beans, as you can see from Janeva’s Asian Green Beans recipe and our Healthy Garlic Shrimp with Green Beans recipe. Our Basil Pesto Chicken recipe puts a delicious Italian spin on this great little veggie! Try these dishes out and let us know what you think!
