We used to call these string beans or snap beans when I was a kid because you had to snap the tip off and peel the string away from the pod. These days the beans have been bred to not have strings that need removing.
Green beans are a legume and there's no doubt that they are good for you. There's a lot of Vitamin C but look at that fiber. That's as much as 2 slices of some whole wheat breads and this has about a third of the calories.
