My family and I have been scouting out local farmer’s markets and fruit stands trying to find fresher and less expensive produce.  It seems to me that the standard grocery store produce is more expensive, less fresh and lacking in variety.  Picked up these crisp flavorful beans over the weekend and threw together this recipe…

Garlic Green Beans With Toasted Almonds


1 pound fresh green beans

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

1-2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic

Sea Salt (to taste)

Begin by toasting the almonds. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lay the sliced almonds in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  Bake for about 10 minutes, stirring once about half-way through.
