    I am still learning about Paleo and am confused about this recipe. Are green beans okay on the Paleo plan?

    This has become a regular, especially when it comes to taking a side for get togethers.

    I don’t think green bean are Paleo. But, I eat them anyway. I don’t see how a natural food like that can do any harm.
