Green Beans Please

Green beans contain minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium and also have anti-inflammatory benefits (carotenoid and flavonoid). They provide nutrients such as vitamin C and beta-carotene as well as the mineral manganese - all of which are antioxidant nutrients! Green beans are also an excellent source of vitamin K and are great for cardiovascular health. You can eat them raw or slightly cooked. Boil them in a small amount of water, drain and then chop into pieces (make sure to cut off the ends). Then add them to some of your favorite meals with some lemon and salt for extra flavor!
