131.Questions Moderated discussion and help for Food Combining and the Hay diet, Cookery and recipes, Starch or Protein

Re fine tuning it - more questions: from Rich Trotman on 2010-11-14

I've always been confused by the pulses question.



I get the soya bean thing, as it's a complete protein.



However, like with many subjects relating to food combining, there's a deal of confusion, including among those who follow the "Hay System."



Some books insist that, if consumed at all, pulses should be part of a protein meal.



However, Jackie LeTissier in her book Food Combining For Vegetarians, seems to place pulses along with starch foods.



Like the fruit after meals issue, it does serve to confuse the issue.



On the fruit situation, I stick with what Doris Grant recommended, otherwise I'd start to find the whole thing too restricting.



Rich.
