    Some people say that, yep. Not me though. For protein legumes are suboptimal at best. But they have other uses.

So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    So, which foods have the amino acids missing from beans? Does it vary by bean? :P

    Same question for other legumes, like soy.

    Grains, mostly. =\

    So for true primal vegetarian, that's going to mean a LOT of white rice since the other grains aren't really so hot nutritionally. Hell even white rice isn't the greatest, but at least it's not full of the anti-nutrients common to other grains.

    Soy is a complete protein, but hopefully you're not eating skads and skads of it regardless.

It needs ALL of the pieces eventually.

    That was, I think, SB's point about caloric load. She was considering the whole package necessary in a legume-heavy diet to achieve the complete protein profile man needs to build and maintain muscle.

    It's like all the people here saying "why should I have gelatin in my post workout sake? It's not a complete protein!" Well, no, but it will still build your muscles if you get a few of the missing pieces (basically minute amounts of tryptophan) from other dietary components within the same day as well.

    And also, if quibbling over 31 calories is a sticking point... You're worrying about calories TOO much. There is a limit.
    Whether or not protein is complete or it is mostly irrelevant as far as I'm concerned, which was what I was trying to point out. If you are on a healthy diet you will be eating meat enough that sources of incomplete protein aren't an issue.

    But all the protien in legumes response are in reply to a vegetarian asking why it's not a complete protein

    Beans should be complete proteins. I think I'll write my congresspeople in the morning; we'll get this all sorted out.

    But seriously thanks for your help guys

    The fact that their lacking in methionine is a good thing. If people were to switch some of the protein foods their eating now for legumes you'll probably be improving glucose tolerance and heart disease risk.

    Eating meat was never really an option here. Vegetarian 4 lyfe maybe. Or at least 4... the foreseeable future lol. Beans super great yes.
    Oh ok. Try out banana-egg pancakes for an egg solution; helped me out for sure.

    I have just cooked some chickpeas (yesterday, in a pressure cooker - they'd been soaked for 36 hours) and left them to cool overnight. This morning I opened the pressure cooker to transfer them to a bowl to go in the fridge. The liquid they'd been cooked in had "gelled" like chicken stock does. Has anyone had this happen?? I couldn't bring myself to throw it out, so I will use it in hummus, or a soup, as it MUST have some goodness in it?
