I don't think you are required
to eat beans! They are high in fiber and filling, so they are great if you like them, but I don't think you have to force yourself to eat them if you don't like them. I often don't have beans...
BUT if you do want to eat more beans, experiment with different kinds ... like red lentils that dissolve when you cook them in soups. Or garbanzo beans/chickpeas that you can make into a delicious salad (look in the recipes for "mock tuna salad" - here it is: Mock Tuna Salad (Chickpeas)
- I waited a long time to try that because I thought it sounded weird, but it is so good!) or hummus (there are many flavors - I love roasted garlic and spicy red pepper) as a dip for veggies. Or some of the bean cakes/muffins (also sounds quite weird but many people love them). White beans are quite mild in flavor and make a great base for an Italian white bean salad (w/ or w/out tuna) or a soup (kale and white bean soup, for example).
Have fun experimenting!
