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.

How To Trim Green Beans?

There are a couple of ways you can trim the stems and woody parts off of green beans to make your keto greens beans and bacon dish. You can snap them off one by one. This takes longer but is a good chore for the kids.

Or you can cut them off with a knife. To cut the stems off the green bean, line a handful of green beans up on a cutting board and slice off the stems. Then do the same with the other end of the green bean. Once you get a rhythm going, this process of the trimming green beans goes fast.
