Green Beans as a Snack?

Okay, so many of you know that I am trying to limit (NOT eliminate) the amount of gluten in my diet. I don't have a wheat intolerance. I am just doing this for my health.  It has been hard, but I have been able to find some good snacks in the process. One of them being GREEN BEANS!

Many people don't think about picking up green beans as a snack, but I found some that will make you do just that! Crunchy Green Beans @ Trader Joe's! If you are chip eater like myself, then these will definitely satisfy your salty and crunchy cravings. They have good fat, 4g of fiber, and 15% Vit A. All-in-all these green beans make for a delightfully light, semi-healthy snack minus the fact that they are not organic and are cooked/fried in canola oil!!
