  • Beans as go-to carb source

    Did a search, and didn't really see this addressed.

    Because beans (thinking here of any legume you'd buy in a 1 lb. bag and rehydrate overnight; i.e. beans, peas, lentils but not peanuts, cashews, etc.) seem to have decent fiber and some protein, is there any reason they don't make an ideal go-to carb source assuming no digestion issues?

    I know when I'd previously gotten diet coaching from y'all, they were my main "real food" staple for keeping my fiber up and topping off my protein.

    Beans are okay if you prefer them. I don't love them personally, but I agree they (along with many other carb sources) can be a part of a health-promoting diet.
