I'm new to the BTD lifestyle and am wondering if anyone knows if there are any beans similar to black beans that are okay for Bs.

Thank you for replying.
I checked the database, and I'm aware of which beans are beneficial for my type..however, I never was much of a bean eater to be honest, and am not personally familiar with the tastes and textures of the different bean types. Taste and texture is a reason why I avoided eating beans for the most part, but fell in love with black beans, and now am just trying to find something to replace them.

Thanks again!

you will love the taste of any of your compliant beans, I am sure.
don t forget to soak them overnight before cooking them in fresh new water next day!

add the salt at the very end, so they do not get hard.

Hey uknowmee-welcome to the forum and the BTD way of life.   I was going to suggest adzuki beans as they are pretty close to black beans, but they are avoids for B's.  Since you don't really care for beans too much your body could be telling you about avoids.  Getting your secretor status done would be a good idea.   Many times our bodies tell us subconciously what is not good for it.  This may be one of them.

I absolutely love BEANS !!!
I usually eat Red beans, Navy beans, Romano beans and sometimes Lima beans or White beans as well ... TRY IT ... u may actually like them ... I always eat my beans with brown/white basmati rice, lots of different veggies (carrots, broccoli, zucchini, green beans, cauliflower, eggplant ... etc) Olive oil, garlic and/or onions ... and always with lots of spices ... usually *curry* ... it's VERY tasty prepared this way and it also helps with digestion and gas  

Perhaps u can start by taking an enzyme when u eat beans dish ...
just to get ur body used to them ...  

P.S. I was also a Black bean lover ... ... sigh ...

Cheers

If I were a B, I'd go with kidney beans.  They are beneficial for B secretors, and I think would fit in well in place of black beans in most recipes.

Yes I agree: well soaked and cooked red kidneys seem to work pretty good instead of black beans.
I´m not crazy about beans- but I do eat some lima/butterbeans once in a while.
Lisa´s suggestions sounds good though

There are blackish varieties of beans more akin to Lima Beans and Fava {Horse} Beans - Though many of these would be more Tropical types that would themselves be untested Neutrals.

Hunt through the Afican and Indian/Bengali markets...

Japan has a medicinal bean that, from its name, is confusingly a giant black Soybean that looks like a Lima/Garbanzo mix...
