Easy Green Bean Recipe

A delicious and crunchy green bean is so much more appealing and so easy to prepare. My son loves to eat them with my Lentil Meatballs (Vegan, Gluten-Free) and my Vegan Mac and Cheese.

Easy Green Bean Recipe

Friends if you are following my Facebook page Healthier Steps, lately I started sharing live cooking videos. Today after I shared my video, I realized that my right arm was showing all the scars I had and it was quite jarring. The day before I shared a video explaining that 8 years ago, I had my bowels nicked in two places during my c-section when I was having my son Daevyd.

I had multiple surgeries and a long stay in ICU. Those scars are what I received from IV infiltrating while I was in a coma and after the numerous procedures during my stay in the hospital. I would normally hide them but my hubby helped my filmed the video and showed them. I want to let you know how they came about if you might be curious.
