Beans were the Roman gladiator's main source of protein. As for the Greeks, beans were considered as a symbol of democracy. The benefits of beans in your diet are endless, yet in today's post we are going to talk about bean cooking. As suggested from Hofmekler's book 'The warrior diet'' (an alternative diet methodology), to eliminate gas formation, bloating, and water retention the correct cooking bean regime is:
- Triple rinsing
- Soak in water overnight
- Triple rinsing again, and at the end
- Peel and remove the skin- all before cooking
Make sure you kill those healthy beans!
