Green beans are one of the healthiest vegetables in the market. They are high in fiber (100 cal worth of green beans pack more than 10 g of fiber, which is 40% of your fiber requirement) and are a great way to add volume to your meal without compromising on calories.
I personally love green beans in all formats – boiled, roasted, or stir-fried. They are great for low-calorie meals that are filling and super tasty. I recommend to all my weight loss clients to fill up at least half their dinner plate with vegetables, and green beans are an easy go-to no matter what you’re making.
For example, I like to make this version of green beans with sun-dried tomatoes with homemade balsamic vinegar dressing as a side for when I make grilled salmon. I also love adding this to pasta, salads and just by itself when I want a quick snack.
These green beans in homemade balsamic vinegar dressing store well in the fridge for months for up to 3 days and are super easy to prepare.
When are you going to try this? Are you going to eat it as a standalone dish or will you pair with something else? Let me know.
