Next time you're hungry, try one (or more) of these healthy options as a low-cal snack—or a guilt-free flavor boost to your favorite dishes.

What to eat: 1 cup of green beans

Green beans are one of the highest sources of the mineral silicon, which is integral for bone health and the formation of connective tissue, thus helping the body heal on a profound level. For a healthy side dish: sautee blanched beans with halved cherry tomatoes, chopped garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

*To blanche, add green beans to a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon into a bowl of ice water. This will "shock" the beans and halt cooking, preserving their bright green color.
