I eat beans and peas that I grow. Its pretty hard to overeat natural peas because they take time to grow and shell.

I will most likely eat them in season, and fresh. They are likely to make a showing in my CSA box :)

I do not go out of my way to eat them, but I don't avoid them like the plague the way I do soy beans.

When they are available fresh in the summer, I will eat them. If a friend serves them, I will eat them. I really like green beans, snow and snap peas, etc. I eat them all on occasion.

I recently rediscovered green beans and forgot they were a legume ... I was just happy they were green and something different (I get bored w/my diet sometimes).

I have been tested for a leaky gut (lactulose-mannitol test via Genova) and have one, so I shouldn't eat them cause of the lectins ... not sure where to find "lectin levels" of legumes, cause the commenters on the link provided brought up good points about the bean pod being immature ...

I just blogged about new gluten sensitivity and leaky gut/intestinal permeability tests from Cyrex Labs. I am considering it. They are supposed to be more sensitive.

Anyone else out there done a leaky gut test?

since it's more pod than bean...it's ok. Peas are evil.....like your attitude to peanuts. ;) Now peapods....a whole other veg in my mind!

here's an interesting post from the Primal Toad blog on the subject:

verdict - green beans ok!

I don't eat green peas because they're too carby for me - but there may be another discussion about them somewhere....

I'm completely befuddled by green beans and green peas, both of which are on both the "good to eat" and the "do not eat" lists in the primal diet. ?? So I eat them both sometimes, but not as often as I would like to.

When I eat them, cause I do, I just have a feeling that "this is a good thing." But they are legumes. Is this bad? I found this. . .what are your thoughts?

Wait. We can't eat peanuts? Ha ha. Ok good. I hate those. I knew there was something wrong with them all along.
