Dogs Love Green Beans
Question for you. When is a fruit not a fruit? Answer. When it’s a green bean.
Why? Because the green bean is the unripened fruit of a cultivar of the common bean, which is of course a vegetable.

Green beans have many common names. French beans, string beans, snap beans to name just a few. They’re all the unripe young fruit and protective pods of common bean cultivars harvested and eaten before the seeds inside have fully matured and ripened. The question is though, can dogs eat green beans?
High in fibre and low in calories, green beans are a good source of vitamins and minerals for your dog. They help build muscle, improve bone strength and are good for your dog’s skin and coat. They also benefit the immune and disgestive systems.
How to feed your dog green beans? Steam or boil chopped, fresh or frozen green beans and add them to your dog’s food. (No canned green beans though. Too much salt and sugar). Just make sure you chop them small enough not to be a choking hazard!
Some dogs don’t mind the occasional uncooked green bean as a healthy treat by the way. And they’re ideal if your dog needs to lose a little weight. Your dog will feel fuller for long with fibre-rich green beans.
My own dogs are rather partial to steamed green beans drizzled with melted coconut oil as a light supper just before settling down to watch TV in the evening. Not that they’re spoiled or anything!
So can dogs eat green beans? You bet they can. And here’s a recipe to prove it!
If you make homemade food for your dog, you'll need to supplement to make that food complete. My natural supplements are made in-house with canine nutritionist approved 100% natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives of any kind.
