 Green Bean Casserole or Sweet Potato Casserole

Which Is the Skinnier Pick: Green Bean Casserole or Sweet Potato Casserole

Even with its creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions, traditional green bean casserole (161 calories, 9 g fat per ¾ cup) is a lighter pick than sweet potato casserole (285 calories, 5 g fat per ¾ cup). Part of the reason is that green beans are so low-cal to start. That said, the starchier sweet potato is full of good-for-you nutrients, including beta carotene, a potent antioxidant and precursor to vitamin A.
