They're popular vegetables but most people who count green beans as one of their favorite vegetables probably don't know how nutritious they are!
Like other vegetables, green beans are a good source of fiber, potassium, and folate, and are an excellent source of protein, iron, and zinc. They contain anti-oxidants similar to those found in green tea, also known as catechins, which can improve heart health. It also helps to prevent cancer and manage/prevent diabetes. Plus they are also a good source of Vitamin C which helps to fight infection and has protective benefits for our immune system.
A cup of green beans contains approximately 30 calories and a whopping 3.4 grams of fiber. This alone should be a motivator to incorporate green beans into more of your meals!
Green beans are available nearly year-round, but the peak season is May through September.
