I was reviewing the WD book and Ori lists legumes such as black beans as a protein source but it seems a lot of posts I have read regard legumes as a carb source. I tend to mix black beans with quinoa on a high carb day since they seem to work well for me but can I incorporate legumes into a high fat day or a high protein day? I love just having a big salad with cabbage, spinach, feta, radishes, avacado, EVOO and fresh lemon juice and then follow it up with a big bowl of cuban style black beans. But what would this meal be considered?
Thanks in advance....!
The distinction is between high-carb and high-fat days, not high-protein days. Carbs or fats are your fuels, not protein. I would have the beans on a carb day, they work well if you're doing AED Phase 1. There's just too much carbohydrate in beans for a high-fat day, unless you are limiting vegetables on that day.
