Are Lima beans paleo? If yes, should they need to be organic?

I believe that they are legumes (beans), so no they are not paleo.

Saute some onions and garlic in olive oil. When the onions are soft, add white wine and greens (chard, kale, etc.) and let it steam until it reached the desired texture. Grate some good parmigiana-reggiano cheese into the greens and enjoy.

sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.

If your meat is grass-fed and you're including organs from time to time, I don't think you really need anything else. No such thing as an essential fruit or vegetable in my opinion.

4 slices of bacon chopped, cook in large frying pan until crisp. Add greens in bunches to wilt down. When all the greens are in add 2 TBSP vinegar (pref. raw) and two cups chicken broth. Simmer 15-20 mins. Salt to taste :)
