I thought it was only me and my unique response to food. Are you like me and have a hard time after eating beans and grains? Do you gain fat when you eat even whole "non-refined" healthy carbohydrates like brown rice, nuts, and seeds?
Soak All Grains, Legumes, Nuts and Seeds
I learned a food tip from Jon Benson's ebook Simply Eat: soak all grains, legumes for 24 hours prior to cooking them. I remember that my grandmother used to soak legumes, beans over night, but somehow for many years, I never adopted the habit of soaking, rinsing, and slightly sprouting grains and legumes, seeds and nuts. I stopped eating these foods for a few months. Now I know it's not just me and what to do to enjoy eating, legumes, rice, seeds and nuts again .
The grains, legumes, and nuts taste the same, and through the re-hydration process they even become fluffy in texture, slightly sprouting . But, more important than that - they are now "lectin-free"...or 90% there.
