Beans need to be paired with rice or other full protein. These are grains (buckwheat, rice, wheat, oats, soy, quinoa, corn and their derivative products, as tofu, tempeh or seitan, for a start) and nuts and seeds, also fish, poutry, red meat, eggs and milk. Complete proteins are essential for our wellbeing.

Beans, peas and peanuts are all legumes and need to be complemented. Lentils to be paired with a complete protein, too. Nuts and seeds work well for all legumes, in general.

It is good enough to get a source of conplete protein throught one day, not in every meal.

Stewing and baking saves more nutrients than boiling or steaming.

Healthy fats are essential. Nuts and seeds are a good source. Go for chia, hempseed, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, to start with. Any nuts do well — walnuts, pistachios, almonds, cashews, chestnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, pecan.

About AIice

The thing is, human memory is limited. When I read, I write down things that are important for me, or might come useful later. Notes do help me remember.

AIice2 is a place for sharing what I've hoarded. Each post usually is a simple list of short notes. It also makes sense to save a reference, a source I'm quoting, so I try to keep a few. That's how my second memory works.

So, I hope, you're finding it useful, too. If you'd like to see what comes next, please subscribe for updates. Send me an email if you need to reach me today.
