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?
