Recommended Legumes for Blood Type B

Legumes are a healthy substitute for animal protein.

greenpeasBeans, peas, and lentils are among the most versatile and nutritious foods available. They are typically low-fat, and high in fiber, folate, potassium, iron, and magnesium, contain beneficial fats, and soluble and insoluble fiber.

Type B’s can eat some beans, but lentils, chickpeas, pinto beans, and black-eyed peas, contain lectins that interfere with insulin production.
