Paleo Green Bean Casserole

Our green bean casserole recipe is a healthy twist on a classic holiday dish. It uses coconut milk and almond flour instead of dairy and wheat flour, and is packed with flavorful herbs and spices. It’s a great side dish for any occasion, and is sure to be a hit with Paleo and non-Paleo eaters alike. We love this recipe all year long!

Paleo diet promotes eating foods that were around during the time of our ancient ancestors, before farming and modern food processing. It focuses on eating meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds, while avoiding processed foods, grains, beans, dairy, and refined sugar.

One of the main benefits of the Paleo diet is that it promotes whole, unprocessed foods, which are nutrient-dense and low in sugar and additives. This can help reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and support healthy weight management. Additionally, the diet is high in protein, which can help build and maintain muscle mass, and high in healthy fats, which can support brain function and hormone balance.

Whether you're following a paleo diet or simply seeking a healthier alternative, this green bean casserole will exceed your expectations. It's a celebration of real, unprocessed ingredients that allow you to savor the flavors of nature while indulging in a satisfying and wholesome culinary experience.
