Green Bean Crunchies – Dog Treat Recipe for


St. Patrick’s Day!

 

For St. Patrick’s Day I had to give you a green recipe and it had to be healthy. Here is one that is really easy and you probably already have the ingredients, so there is no need to go to the store.

I have been eating my green beans like a good girl.  The vet said I need to lose some weight and he suggested I add green beans to my food.  Well, I can only eat so many unsalted green beans. I mean, have you ever tasted them? Yuck!  So Shelley set out to find a yummy version of green beans and she can even eat them too. (Secretly,  I think she is salting hers.)  These beans are crunchy and are an excellent source of vitamins, A, C, and E, as well as fiber, potassium, and magnesium. And all those are good for humans and dogs.
