50 Holiday Foods You Shouldn't Eat
Green bean casserole with fried onions
Green beans are a hearty vegetable, boasting dietary fiber and vitamins A and C. Still, this casserole is far from wholesome. Butter, cheese, salt, and fried onions take away from the health perks of the beans. One full batch has 785 calories and 4,128 milligrams of sodium. You probably won't take the entire dish for yourself, but it's still important to watch your portion size.
For a comparable savor with fewer calories and less salt, make this casserole. Broccoli and water chestnuts give the dish a refreshing crunch.
