Today I put together a list of 53 Legume and Bean Sources and Alternate Names.

In The Gutsy Girl’s Bible, you will find many lists like this, including 52 Egg Sources and Alternate Names, 124 Wheat and Gluten Sources and Alternate Names, 192 Sugar Sources and Alternate Names, 100 Dairy Sources and Alternate Names, 134 Corn Sources and Alternate Names, and more.

In the early days of the Paleo Diet, people avoided all legume and bean sources. It was widely accepted that there were many problems associated with them.

Some of these problems include:

  • Phytic acid (which binds to nutrients, making you unable to absorb them)
  • High-FODMAP
  • Lectins (contribute to leaky gut)

Today, the Paleo community is more lenient on incorporating legumes and beans into the diet, and it is generally accepted that a little goes a long way

For me personally? I think if you can digest them without feeling a lot of discomfort, then you should soak them first, and enjoy from time-to-time. 

If, however, you have active SIBO or symptoms of leaky gut, I’d say it’s best to keep them out for now while you focus on further rebuilding, repairing and healing.

I love beans to the nth degree, but they rarely love me. I do, however, eat a ton of green beans and it’s a staple even when I’m on the (no) carbs and SIBO train.
