Celebrate Eat More Fruits and Veggies Day with Sesame Green Beans

#eatmorefruitsandveggiesday #sesamegreenbeans #chefslife



Getting the suggested amounts of fruits and veggies in one's diet can be challenging even on perfect days. They sometimes require preparation in new and different ways to avoid the dreaded kitchen fatigue. Nutrition experts will tell you to fill half of your plate with vegetables, one fourth with carbs, and one fourth with protein. I try for seven half-cup servings most days, having things chopped and ready in the fridge certainly makes it easier. This recipe is perfect for snacking or as a side for an alfresco dining outing. They can be made a day ahead of time and pair well with most picnic sandwiches.
