So last night the wife and I were reading some of the get started stuff here on MDA, and I noticed that in one of the recipes for a salad Mark mentions snow peas, however I seem to recall that in the book peas are legumes, and not to be eaten. On the topic of legumes, where do green beans fall? I understand that pintos, black, red, kidney, northern, white, lima, and soy are no nos, does this include green beans and wax beans as well? In addition I have seen numerous people within the forum talk about eating rice or potatoes. The vibe I got from the book was that wild rice is ok occassionally, and sweet potatoes are good to go if you are looking for more carbs.

Cheese, is any cheese ok, or only white cheeses?

Thanks for the help!
