||I can't believe there was no mention in the article of using a SLOW COOKER or CROCKPOT to cook dried beans. I find this is the easiest way to cook a big batch, then, I freeze individual portions to use in recipes later.|

||i love incorporating beans into my diet. My two favorites are my homemade hummous and homemade Lebanese red lentil soup. So filling with the high fiber. Loved this article!|

You're right, OneWeigh! Beans make me feel FED, too!
Legumes are NOT healthy, for many of the same reasons that grains aren't - their lectin content. Lectins are antinutrients (meaning they leech good stuff from our bodies). For more info on WHY they're dangerous read here: - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/lectins/
Yes, they really are that bad (just as grains are). So, Ruth, when you say you eat vegetarian "to save $$s and partly for health" all that money you've saved you'll need for your increased medical insurance premiums - eat vegetarian and become sicker and die younger than if you ate the diet our bodies are supposed to eat (high fat, moderate protein, low carb). Not as fast as vegans, granted, but omnivores live the longest (and suffer FAR fewer health problems).
Eastercat: - whilst quinoa and tofu are complete proteins, it's true - they are poisonous to our bodies (see: - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/lectins/ and http://www.marksdailyapple.com/why-grains-
are-unhealthy/ and http://www.marksdailyapple.com/soy-scrutin
y/) why not do something radical and, oh I dunno, EAT STEAK!!!

|I usually opt for canned beans, but I like the idea of saving money while eating more healthily. I think I'll try some of these recipe ideas!|

|I like to buy dried beans in bulk. Mayacoba beans are my new favorite. They are great with Mexican food and when added to soups and stews.|

If I don't add a complete protein like tofu or quinoa, I'll combine beans with other vegetables to make a complete protein.
Beano isn't suitable for vegetarians or vegans; it has fish gelatin. [blech]
