Cabbages make at least as many people gassy as beans do. I am pretty sure of it. Yesterday I was stupid enough to apple butter from a jar forgotten in the back of a fridge for 6+ months. I was sick all night and my stomach lining still remembers it. I am not giving up apples or cabbages because of it or call them non-Primal or toxic. Though the leftovers in the jar went down the drain this morning, lol!
An interesting thing about nuts for me is that I grew up rarely eating nuts. Maybe in the winter when we shelled some for the squirrels or in the fall when we picked some hazelnuts along with mushrooms in the forest. I tried peanut butter first time when I was 23. I thought it was disgusting (I am pretty sure it was rancid, lol). I never really cared, until I went my first low carb attempt. I went trough a period of nuts and peanut addiction. Now, I am not experiencing the desire too eat half a cup of almond or peanut butter in a sitting... but only because I do not do LC.

If I put any more than that, I can't get the salt to dissolve.
[QUOTE=Forgotmylastusername;1118953]Legume exclusion is probably one of the weaker paleo arguments. If you tolerate them fine they're a good food source. They're consistently correlated with good health and have possibly the highest antioxidant content of any food. Also a good source of magnesium.
I'm not a huge fan of them myself besides in soups/stews.[/QUOTE]
I agree with this. What the bottom line of all food is is that if it makes you healthier and enriches your life, eat it. If you find it makes you sick or weak or you just don't like the food, then don't eat it.

[QUOTE=yodiewan;1119532]With all this discussion of chili, I think this recipe needs to be shared:

[QUOTE=RichMahogany;1119158]I can see more arguments for eliminating nuts than including legumes.[/QUOTE]
(except of course a couple of tablespoons in some pesto sauce or some Asian inspired dish)
Eliminating entire food groups because on paper they may have some negatives is just stupid. Variety is key to health, if something doesnt agree with you or is heavily processed then avoid it. Otherwise eat what you like.

I actually find this is the key to exercise as well... variety. Over the last two weeks i've been swimming, running, cycling, skiiing, hill walking, body weight exercises - not excessively, and I can't believe how much tighter my body is.
That was post 666 btw Zach!

I am curious as to how this statement is different from "[I]beans should be avoided except in a hummus or some Indian inspired dish[/I]"....
