Green Beans

When I need a snack that's filling and not loaded with carbs I eat green beans. As of late, I've been steaming my green beans and sprinkling lemon pepper over them. The lemon pepper gives it a good kick if you're looking for a bit more flavor. If you can't find fresh green beans then opt for frozen verses canned. Frozen contain more nutrients then the canned. If canned is all you have to eat, then you're still making a great choice.

Green beans are a great source of protein, complex carbs and fiber. They're also a good source of folic acid and molybdenum (helps with the metabolism of fats and carbs). They also contain considerable amounts of iron, magnesium, phosphorus manganese and potassium.
