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)

There's nothing wrong with properly prepared beans and rice imho, if you tolerate them well. They are whole foods but clearly you would want to complement them with a wide range of other foods to meet your nutritional requirements. One thing... (more)

One word: Chili Other than that, gluten makes all the argument for me. Beans can be soaked - which removes most lectins, and then cooked, which also inactivates most lectins. Gluten? Yeah. Good luck getting that out.

Beans are a lot easier to digest if you sprout them first. Even soaking them for 24 hours starts to break down the sugars. The longer you let them sprout the easier they will be to digest. Obviously, this is a lot more work than opening a can of... (more)

The dehydrating alone is not making them crispy: the starch coating and frying is making them crispy. Yes, the dehydrating helps. However, the moist-and-yet-crispy bite to them is undoubtedly from the frying. Consider dehydrating them much, much... (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.

What you are describing is definitely not unheard of. Some people have reported heightened sensitivities to seemingly unrelated foods after having cut out a specific type of food - wheat, dairy, eggs, etc.
