Nothing screams Thanksgiving like Green Bean Casserole. To me, it is the epitome of American food: it was created in a food laboratory, out of mostly canned / frozen ingredients, and has enough sodium to kill you (well, not really – the lethal dose of NaCl is 3,300mg/kg).I find this recipe to be a much better option, if you must have this all-American dish at your Thanksgiving.
I can argue that green beans are not paleo, since they are a legume, and that you should avoid consuming them in large quantities. But that would violate rule number one of Marina’s Rulebook on How Not to Suck in Life – don’t be a plonker. If you would like to more info on where green beans stand in the paleo spectrum, Paleo Leap and Paleo Magazine are good starting points, and will point your towards some more good reading on the subject.
