The countdown to Thanksgiving is officially on, and if you’re feeling a little discouraged by everything you can’t eat on the keto diet (ahem, your aunt’s signature biscuits), here’s a bit of good news: green beans get the green light.

While green beans share a name with off-limits legumes like kidney and pinto beans, they are much lower in carbs. “In one cup of green beans, there are about 10 grams of carbohydrates, with four of those coming from fiber,” Jaclyn Shusterman, RDN, CD, CNSC, a health coach at Arivale, told POPSUGAR. That’s only six grams of net carbs, making green beans about as virtuous as a side of broccoli or brussels sprouts.

When preparing green beans, try sautéing them in oil and topping them with herbs for a flavor-packed bite. (On keto, you can even serve them with bacon or prosciutto.) If you just can’t have Thanksgiving without the traditional green bean casserole, there are ways to make that keto-friendly, too — by making the sauce with almond flour, for example.
