Fresh Green Beans

There’s Nothing Like Fresh Green Beans! 

Fresh green beans taste so much better than frozen ones, although frozen is great in a pinch. Buy them by the handfuls – they’re easy to make and you can add different toppings for additional flavor.

Some additional toppings I like to use are fresh lemon or dried cranberries and chopped pecan nuts (this is a great combo for the holidays). It only takes 20 minutes to lightly saute the green beans in olive oil. Be sure to use low-medium heat to avoid overcooking them. 

Green beans are actually legumes, but they are often thought of as a vegetable so I included them in Paleo diet. If you’re following a very strict Paleo diet then you may want to avoid green beans and peas or reduce the serving size.  They are Low FODMAP with 1 serving – about 12 green beans. 

Green beans pair well with chicken, tri-tip or stir fry meals. Try them with my easy 3 ingredient Pineapple Chicken recipe!
