i posted this question as a comment on mark's salad posting but realized it was from a year ago so i'm not sure it will get noticed.
in that posting, 1 of the salads contained snow peas and the other green beans. i have since done further digging on the site and found many other recipes that call for green beans or peas, including mark's video where he makes his 2 minute salad that he eats every day.
i am very confused because i thought these were legumes and to be avoided. can someone clarify? can i go back to eating these two foods? can they be considered vegetable options [even though i know they are legumes]?
