I'm interested in experimenting with traditionally prepared (sprouted/soaked) whole grains and beans, as recommended by Weston a price, Sally Fallon's nourishing traditions, and the like. Does anyone have an opinion of which whole grains &... (more)

All beans, properly soaked (even a two days soak if needed, for red kidney beans for example), and well cooked, are similar. That is because the lectins are similar though with varying amounts. If you want really light beans, make them into natto.... (more)

I will go along with that, specially if the green peas are fresh frozen. Chickpeas under any circumstances, and they soak for two days and give you a 1/4 inch spear after that. for lentils I prefer the dark green French lentils, soaked one day.... (more)

One thing that always surprises me is the 12-24 soaking period. to me it is 24-48, much closer to 48, and I want to see germination. (of course this will not work with split peas). There is also a strong hierarchy within pulses, just like in... (more)

I think it depends on which grain and which legume. Wheat is deadly, but many people on this very site eat white rice with no ill effects. Legumes, I guess, depend more on preparation. Soaking improves digestibility, and so does cooking with a... (more)

If you're seeing benefits from eating beans I say eat em, who cares if they're paleo or not. Tubers and root vegetables are probably a better source of carbs, but that doesn't mean you should shun beans if they work for you.
