🌱 40 calories and almost no fat (0.3g).
🌱 They contain no cholesterol but have 4g of fiber.
🌱 They’re a low FODMAP food and won’t upset things like irritable bowel syndrome or acid reflux.
🌱 2.4g of protein per cup.
🌱 They’re high in vitamins A, C, K, and manganese.
🌱 You’ll also find a decent amount of calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium in green beans.
