Are Green Beans Keto?

Yes, green beans are keto approved. One cup of green beans has 4.3 grams net carbs. Most people don’t have a full cup of green beans when they sit down to eat them. I generally will have about 1/2 cup of green beans, which means I’m getting a little over 2 grams carbs per serving.
