Bodi, a bean by another name?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Where I live there is a long pod/bean that is cultivated and eaten because it's cheap, healthy(?) and cheap. My question is - although I already suspect the answer - is this something I can eat while on the Whole 30? As per Wikipedia " Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis is a legume cultivated to be eaten as green pods. It is known as the yardlong bean, bora, bodi, long-podded cowpea, asparagus bean, pea bean, snake bean, or Chinese long bean. Despite the common name, the pods are actually only about half a yard long; the subspecies name sesquipedalis (one-and-a-half-foot-long) is a rather accurate approximation of the pods' length." So while it is a legume can it fall into the snowpeas category?
