My understanding is that you can start with 1/3-1/2 c of beans per day as a serving size when you start this food plan. No concrete explanation was ever given that I have yet to come across and I am constantly sleuthing to understand the dynamics of this food plan all the time. I guess, it goes back to beans being a starchier vegetable and the fact, as someone else mentioned, that it can cause some people to become constipated or bloated, which can
affect your weight lose efforts.
In the past, before I started SBD, I read to start beans slowly so your body can become accustomed to them but after that it is really up to you. I think they are truly "a miracle fruit" as the rhyme goes.
Your recipe sounds super! Yum! Beans are good for the plumbing and I think very versatile in how they can be prepared. Eat away.....
