Lectin-Light Adzuki Beans Brownie with Olive Oil and Macadamia Nuts

There is a big preconception out there, that if you are following the Plant Paradox program you can’t eat beans. To quote Dr. Steven Gundry, “you can eat beans, just detoxify them first”.

I don’t seem to have reactions to beans if properly prepared, but we did notice that my husband doesn’t tolerate lentils even if soaked and pressure cooked. This to say, reintroductions, whatever they are, are bio-individual and different from case to case; and the best way to find out is to try. If you feel you are at that point, here there are few ideas on how to prepare black beans, Lima beans and chickpeas to significantly lower their lectin load. Plus, three ideas and recipes for how to incorporate them in your daily menu. They are all as lectin-light as possible and low hisatmine, if you tolerate beans.

Like with many of my recipes, this soup was created when a bunch of random ingredients in my fridge needed to be purposed, plus a day when I actually felt like a soup. This is so simple, made with ingredients available all year round, and surprisingly refreshing and soothing. Also, you know, perfect for those days when you feel like a cleanse and getting rid of some extra pounds. And, also a low histamine soup, if the chicken you use is prepared the right way.
