Hi all, I've been thinking of trying a raw food plan like on the main website as I've got a few lb's of bodyfat still hanging around that just isn't going away on my current diet.

One question I have, I've seen some plans that use beans, typical things like soy beans and the like.. What do you do about them as you HAVE to cook them, even if they come pre cooked out of a can as they are toxic if you don't.

Good luck getting them in the UK, or at least where I live. You can get the typical "bean sprouts" which are mungbeans I believe?

Mung beans are kew. I know for a fact that waitrose stocks sprouted beans, but it isnt hard to sprout your own. Google it.

I'm pretty sure beans can't be included in a raw food diet. Like you said, you have to cook them for them to be edible. Red kidney beans will make you sick if you don't cook them.

I'm pretty sure you can sprout any dried bean. You have to put them in a jar and soak them for a certain time and then rinse them periodically. Check online for methods on doing it.

Bean sprouts can be eaten raw but there are some exceptions, e. g. soy and red kidney beans.
