FBR Loves Green Beans
Green Beans are a low FODMAP food
FODMAPs are undigested carbohydrates that are metabolized by bacteria in your gut leading to gas, belly pain, diarrhea, and constipation, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Eating foods high in FODMAPs may worsen digestive conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and acid reflux. Eating low FODMAP foods may bring considerable relief to your tummy troubles. Green beans are a low FODMAP food and can be enjoyed by many people who have chronic digestive issues. From healthline

The best way to get green beans is to find them loose at a local farmers market where you can buy organic. Choose green beans with a smooth texture and vibrant green color, free from brown spots and bruising. Good green beans are firm and should make a “snapping” sound when opened.
Clean the beans and enjoy as a snack
Use Multifunction Kitchen Scissors or Food Chopper Scissors & Cutting Board to cut ends off the beans quickly and easily.
