I used to love green bean casserole. It was one of my favourite dishes during the holidays.

But, once I switched my eating habits and started losing weight, cheesy casseroles like this became off limits.

Of course, little did I know that healthy fat does NOT make you fat!

No more plain green beans for this mama!

And I love that this casserole doesn’t contain ANY canned soup! YAY!

My kids are actually pretty good at eating their vegetables since I’ve been giving them veggies since they were little, no matter if they wanted them or not! But of course, like most kids, they still complain once in a while about having to eat them.
