Colleen, any kind of beans is fine. Just be sure they do not contain sugar. I also rinse them to ditch the salt. Chick peas, kidney beans, romanos, etc., are all fine. By the way, the Phase I food list has been revised to include beans, tomatoes, and dairy so please check it out in the FAQ section. I am assuming you have the old book.
and do join the Phase I Chick-Check and the daily thread.
