Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans

I think fat free refried beans are fine. I also like to eat many different kinds of beans-garbanzos, white, black.
Quinoa is also a good source of protein. It is a grain from South America, you can probably find it at your local health food store. You rinse it off and then boil the whole grains, and it is delicious. You have to rinse it off before cooking because the grains are coated with a saponin that will give it a soapy flavor if you don't.

Hi Everyone! I joined this group to gather information. I already donít eat much meat (only a few times a week, but no pork or beef). But for the next 14 days I am trying to clean by body for health reason. My plan is to only eat whole foods and no meat or dairy. My only concern is the only thing I found that I like for protein is nuts but they are very high in fat. More fat then protein. I would love to hear any advice anyone might have. After the next 2 weeks, I might keep this up for much much longer.
Also what are you thoughts on fat free refried beans? Good bad ugly?
