Nutritious Foods: Green beans

Green beans are delicious and incredibly rich in nutrients. They are the perfect ingredients for the spring and summer, and their benefits are enormous.

 

Here are some of their nourishing properties:

 

  • Perfect supplements of potassium, calcium and phosphorous
  • Poor in calories, only 18 per 100 grams
  • Rich in water and fiber, they help you feel full & ease the digestive process
  • Multicolour: you can get green, yellow and purple beans to maximise the nutritional values

 

We love them steamed and then seasoned with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
