"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Green Bean Casserole

Green bean casserole is pretty much a staple on many holiday tables.  Unfortunately, although it sounds like it would be pretty healthy, in reality, it is not.

Cream of pretty much anything canned soup (and canned soup in general) are secret hiding places for lots of salt, sugar, carbohydrates, preservatives and all sorts of other ingredients that are not healthy.  And don’t even get me started on the ingredients of that fried onion topping!

The good news is that both of those ingredients can be swapped out for easy to make healthy replacements.


This delish recipe is found on page 37 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.
