Dietitian's Top Pick: No Salt Added Green Beans

First things first, we need to announce the winner of yesterday's Trade Up with NuVal Giveaway for $50 to Market Street. And the winner is....Karin Slyker (username: kslyker) who posted at 12:04 PM about her Kashi Pizza Trade Up. Thank you to everyone who entered and be sure to subscribe or follow us by email to stay up to the minute on new giveaways.





A weird thing happened this Thanksgiving. In the hustle and bustle, everyone in the family assumed someone else was bringing the green bean casserole. As we sat down to our Thanksgiving Feast, eyes darted from dish to dish and across the table, each person slowly realizing that the delicious vegetable dish with the crunchy coating was absent from this year's table. We all had a good laugh about it (and then another chuckle when we realized no one brought a pumpkin pie either)! Regardless, we had plenty to be thankful for, and Christmas, which is only a few weeks a away, would provide another opportunity to make the classic holiday dish.

If you get a second chance to make green bean casserole, try making one simple switch that will make the recipe healthier but won't affect the taste. Using No Salt Added Green Beans can help you reduce the sodium of this salty, savory dish. No one will know the difference and you'll still get enough salty flavor from the cream of mushroom soup and the fried onions. Happy and Healthy Holidays!
