Great Green Beans
Eat foods like vegetables which contain a high percentage of water. More water means fewer calories for the same weight of food. Good news for your waistline.
Success
Be sure to peel the cucumbers, even if their skin is relatively thin. By exposing all of the cucumber’s flesh to the dressing, it soaks up more flavor.
Time Saver
Two cups of frozen cut green beans, cooked briefly and rinsed under cool water, will save you the time of chopping and cooking fresh beans.
