Green beans go by many names, including string beans, french beans, snap beans, and runner beans. As opposed to other beans that are usually dried, green beans are eaten fresh, with their pod and all!
At only 34 calories per cup, green beans are very high in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate, manganese, and fiber. They also contain tons of carotenoids and flavonoids that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and diabetes prevention benefits. (See more green bean nutrition facts at Self.com.)
Place green beans in a perforated plastic bag or paper bag and store them in the refrigerator crisper.
