Beans As a Carb Source
What is everybody's take on eating a lot of beans? It seems to me that they would be really good as they are generally low fat, low GI, and high fiber. The only downsides I can see is that they contain a lot of incomplete protein which would add to overall calories, and are also high in sodium. Right now most of my carbs come from old fashioned oatmeal and shredded wheat.

Nothing wrong with sodium unless you're cutting or trying to keep water off when on AAS.
Incomplete protein sources are fine to eat, that doesn't mean that they won't still be used. Just try and get most from better sources of course. I get 50-60g of protein each day just from all the rice I eat....

you could also go with red kidney beans, or garbanzo beans i like to mix them with greens,, very hi fiber, some protein, but very filling

If you mix beans /w rice you'll have a full spectrum of aminos since the rice has the aminos that the beans don't and vice-versa. This is what vegetarians do, and I do it too since its a great way to get the most out of the protein in your carb foods.

Is anyone else here puerto rican....pretty much describes out traditional dinner of rice and beans every nite!

A lot of traditional diets include some sort of grain mixed with legumes. Its funny how humans have known to do this for thousands of years, even without any scientific reasearch at all.

Lentils are the best bean, from a nutrition standpoint.

I saw a Pea-based protein powder the other day at a nutrition store. Unfortunately it was crazy expensive like 23 bucks for 2-4 pounds.
