I like this site and the philosophy promoted, but there is one dietary restriction that I do not understand. That is the restriction on legumes. Beans are known to have been one of the 3 staples of most Native American tribes....beans, corn, and squash. These people lived in a stone age way eating and cultivating these foods long before the arrival of the Europeans. Two of the most basic food items to the Tarahumara in Mexico is corn (pinole), and beans. This is ancient tradition dating back many thousands of years. They are known to be some of the healthiest, long lived, and athletic people around. Beans are high in calories, low glycemic, and full of protein....so what gives?
