when you are in doubt, look at the calories and eat about that many calories from the product you have in front of you.

-google first. ask questions later.

String Beans have an insulin producing quality and at about 40 calories per cup can help to prevent blood sugar from rising. Green beans can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and they are low in calorie and sodium.

Frozen Green Beans are just as healthful as fresh. Sometimes that's all I'll make for dinner, with sliced almonds on top and some Benocal I am go to go.

12 snap beans is 20.5 calories. according to the tracker 3/4 of the Westpac frozen green beans is 22.5 calories. The short answer is eat the 3/4 of a cup.

At 30 calories a cup though, I think you don't really need to worry about the serving size. If you have a cup, or even 2, green beans aren't going to ruin your diet. Fresh or frozen only matters in how it measures. They are the same food. Frozen may not pack as densely, so you may want to eat a cup to make sure you get enough, while fresh will pack down more, and 3/4 cup may be the same. The difference in the 1/4 cup is 7.5 calories, so don't spend too much time obsessing about it.

We buy some frozen veggies because they last longer and it is difficult for us to get to the store. Many of the SP menu items we get call for "Green Beans(snap), 12 beans (4"long). Can anyone tell me what the equivalent amount of Frozen Green Beans would be? That would be very helpful! emoticon

Blessings for the journey!
