Green beans are very low in calories (approx, 43 or so calories in a cup) and they are a great nutrient source!  They are a great source of Vitamin K, C, A and more!  Green beans have been noted to be helpful in the fight against atherosclerosis and play a helpful cardio-protective role.  They are a great source of fiber too!
