Green beans with cherry tomatoes and bacon

27 Jul

I am realizing I need more veggies in my life and less fruit. It sucks but its true. Next week I am actually going on a no fruit, no nut, no sugar week. I tried about 10 days ago and failed on the first hour. So this week’s grocery shopping will NOT consist of those items and WILL consist of more green’s.

This was really good. I was just going to stir fry some green beans with my one piece of bacon. I saw I had a tub full of cherry tomatoes and figured I would throw those in as well. Good choice! They make this creamy sauce combined with the bacon and becomes really good! (Plus Joe always gives me crap for buying veggies at Costco and saying they go bad. So I am determined never to let my veggies go bad!)


  • A bunch of green beans
  • A bunch of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 piece of bacon. (The really good kind, thick yummy)
  • Little salt and pepper
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic

Chop up your piece of bacon and throw it in with the green beans, tomatoes, and garlic. If the bacon doesnt give you enough slip in your pan for the veggies to cook then add a small amount of coconut oil. (I did). Smells delicious and the longer you cook it the more the bacon and tomatoes combine and make this awesome flavor.

I served mine next to some coconut chicken and non peanut sauce (Recipe in past post) . So tasty!
