I'm still learning how to eat, and learning how to cook. I have ideas on how to buy and prepare the leafy greens, now I need help on beans.
Honestly, I don't know much. From what i have read so far, they are a good source of protein. Beyond that, I'm not knowledgeable.
The only beans that I have tried are the canned baked beans (Bush's Vegetarian). The can says they are white beans.
So I wanted to buy them by the bag and couldn't find anything close. Black beans, kidney beans were there and a bunch of others I can't remember.
What I want to accomplish is a cheap, easy, and healthy addition to my diet. I guess I'm looking for the Broccoli of the bean world. Something that can be boiled (steamed?) and served (novice cook)
What is a good all around bean that i can buy in bulk?
Beans are legumes right?
I remember being told that certain beans are toxic and need to be heavily cooked. Any truth to this?
My present goal is to limit meat consumption. I might experiment with the vegetarian intake but I have to take this one step at a time.
Thanks in advance for the help.
