What are people's thought on chick peas? I am making a recipe with them in. I know Mark (MDA) says that they are ok in moderation.

What are people thoughts? Is there anything you can do to make them better (or less bad, which ever is correct).

Cheers

It's not hummus if you change the original recipe! Chick peas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, salt, and a pinch of cumin.

No, lentils only have to be soaked 8-12 hours. Although they can be soaked for 24 hours if you have the time.

DO you also soak lentils as long as this? I love lentils and have so missed them for the last 2 years...

Unfortunately, I've got canned beans. I'll be alright this time. I'll make sure I get fresh next time. Cheers everyone

I don't use tap water, so chlorine isn't an issue for me. If you don't change water, you run the risk of the oligosaccharides you've drawn out re-entering the beans (according to what I've read on the WAPF site). However, if your only concern is phytates and not also digestibility, it may not matter. I really don't know about that.

I have heard something about it takes 24 hours for chlorine to "evaporate" out of tap water, so I am not sure about the changing the water every 12 hours. I had thought the goal was to get biological activity going to degrade the phytates, but I haven't really paid a lot of attention to it. I soak legumes for 48 hrs straight with no dumping.

Totally agree on the canned beans. I would definitely avoid those.

That's about what I do. I recently added properly prepared legumes back into my diet and I feel great. (Canned beans? Not so much.)

I can't tolerate them anymore. They're tasty, but not worth 3 days of digestive discomfort/damage control.

my honest opinion? They're yummy, in salads, roasted, hummus form.. I like them.

Hommus! I that is all I have ever used chickpeas for and still have some now and then, it's absolutely worth it. Love hommus. Hommus on bbqed lamb is glorious Consider it a cheat, a 20 in your 80/20. Add coconut cream or oil to your hommus for a paleo flair, sub tahini paste with almonds. Only problem with hommus is I wanna scoop it with corn chips!

I eat legumes and if properly prepared they are fine for most people in moderation. I removed them from my diet and that did not work for me (at all). I have them about once a week and prepare them traditionally by long-soaking them in warm water with some kind of acid (lemon juice, vinegar, whey, etc.). And by long I mean really, really long: usually about 48 hours--changing the water every 12 hours. This process will remove most of the phytates and make the legumes more easily digestible.

I am experimenting with this as well. I made a recipe with canned chick peas and they didn't make me feel well. I am following the traditional soaking preparation and hoping for a better result this time. I'll keep you posted.

I'd say for any legumes make sure you soak them to get rid of the antinutrients more

Yeah in moderation; hummus is so awesome that it's hard to go without it every once in a while but for me personally I've had some serious GI stuff when I've eaten garbanzo beans on a consistent basis.

Yesterday I ate revithosoupa :-)

Although I surpassed the 50 grams of carbohydrates limit, it didn't seem to cause any problems with my sugar cravings, maybe because of the fiber.

They make me gassy but if I am going to eat beans those are the ones to eat.

I completely agree. Life without hummus is not worth living. Everything in moderation.

Life without hummus is a life not worth living! You can use almond butter instead of tahini (sesame). I can't imagine not doing it from scratch which involves soaking. You can eat it with raw bread which is flourless. Corn is a Paleo no no, but you can make plenty of raw crackers that give you that flavor. Try beet chips. Simply slice them super thin with a mandolin, toss in apple cider vinegar (now paleo accepted), let sit for 20 minutes, lay out on dehydrator screens, sprinkle with salt and pepper, dehydrate at 110 until crispy. Scoop hummus and enjoy!
