why no legumes?

The Whole30 is not a Paleo diet. I sometimes tell people I eat Paleo because it is a simple explanation, but the Whole30 is based upon science and experience and Paleo is based upon history and concept. They have some overlap, but are not the same. So, nothing about the Whole30 is determined by silly Paleo rules.

It Starts With Food updates the position on legumes, but the Legume Manifesto from April 2011 remains good - http://whole9life.com/2011/04/legume-manifesto/.

Basically, legumes are toxic raw and not completely neutralized when soaked and cooked.
