Beans: problematic or just...beans?

Recommended Posts

We all know what they say about beans and their "magical" properties.  Given that, how do you differentiate a true issue with beans/legumes from beans just being beans?  Yesterday was my legume intro and my stomach wasn't awful, but it was quite gassy and I definitely felt VERY full for a while.  I love beans and don't want to have to give them up!

That's the great thing, though - you get to choose whether it's worth it to have gas or not! Personally, my reaction to chickpeas was so bad that for the sake of my friendships I have to give them up :)  (it also lasted for days, so clearly worse than what you noticed!). I'm not game to try other legumes, but I don't like them enough to mind not having them. If you love them and you can put up with the results, then there's your answer.
