Talk about a plant powered breakfast. If you want to get those lean gains up in the gym, you need to add this into your weekly regime. You may have seen and tried my Mung Bean zucchini fritters recipe – the wrap is another variation offering all the nutritional goodness that these incredible legumes offer.
Lectins are pretty much destroyed during cooking. Fad diets like ‘Keto’, ‘Paleo’ and what not try to scare us from eating plant foods by making lectins sound like the enemy. We know that lectins are completely fine to consume, are mainly destroyed in cooking/sprouting and may even have beneficial actions within our body! So if you’ve read the Plant Paradox…maybe look into the guy, Dr. Gundry, that wrote it and see his ‘Keto bars’ and ‘olive oil’ that he is pushing and profiting from off the back of the ‘lectin scare tactics’. Does he have an agenda for making you think these foods are bad and his products are good? Really just another author that had to come up with some radical idea to sell books and profit from fear. It’s not often I get frustrated but this one really hits a nerve – the benefits of eating legumes are so profound you simply cannot afford to leave them out of your diet unless you are allergic! It seems totally irresponsible for someone to be suggesting you take them out of your diet. Just look at the Okinawan’s and all the blue zone regions – populations that thrive on legumes and have the greatest longevity recorded. Why are these people living the longest with the greatest quality of life, Dr. Gundry?
