“Dry beans, peas, lentils, and other grain legumes represent the richest source of protein we can find in the plant world”, says Carol Deppe, author and gardening expert. “Legumes are also excellent sources of carbohydrates, good sources of calories as well as protein staples. Beans are also an excellent source of fiber.”
Many people will shy away from eating beans because of the unpleasant side effects. Proper preparation and making beans a part of your diet can ease that problem. We’ll talk about the way Carol prepares beans, and it’s not how all the cookbooks teach either. You’ll also learn about inter-planting pole beans with your corn to get maximum yield of both crops.
Should the time come when eating or not eating, thriving or not surviving depends on what you and those around you grow, you need to know what Carol Deppe can teach you.
