Hello

I am not vegan. but i get most of my calorie and protein from vegan foods.

I eat these daily:

1 cup red kidney beans
1 cup chickpeas
1 cup mung beans
1 cup lentils
1 cup barley

I soak them all at least one day prior, and then discard the soaking water and rinse before boiling them.
Will I be safe eating all this big amount of beans and legumes?

good choice of beans! barley is grain, not legume. But never mind, it is a very good grain!
If you don't feel bloated, don't worry.

Why would it not be safe? Everything cooked well, until "soft" (not undercooked)?

Do you eat lots of fruits and veggies? I have heard of excess fiber preventing absorption of nutrients in the body, but if you are chewing thoroughly and getting your veggies, then I don't imagine a problem coming up.
