I just like to point out the search function. You do not need to apologize.

(Especially here when I was using this as a cover for not being able to answer your question--and also knowing that the linked posts do not give a definitive answer either)

Hi C_sharp, interesting, I just checked something. I had looked at your search string to see if it was different than what I use (always looking for new tricks). I noticed that you placed 'site:sitename.TLD' at the head of your search string, whereas, I've always put it at the end. No difference in results, though. Google recognizes either format equally, and search results are the same.

If you were reading another hijacked thread you would know what U. has Longhorns for a mascot, within the state of Texas.

This should explain it ...


However, I assume no responsibility if you, like Possum, are traumatized by the aforesaid explanation.

I didn't see a whole of reason to feel that the answers there were any better than we can get out of thin air.    I say just eat all the beans you can hold and call it a serving - which isn't a whole lot for me!   Nobody is playing bean police around here IMO. If you can get'em down, eat all you want as if your life depended on them! Because......... where is that meat?????

In Swami's recommendations for vegetable protein category, nuts/seeds are 1/2 cup. But beans and legumes on amount of beans per meal?

Since nuts/seeds are so much more calorically dense than beans--e.g., one cup of plain, raw almonds contains 822 calories, whereas one cup of unsalted, cooked black beans contains 227 calories--I can't imagine that the serving size would be interchangeable between the two plant proteins. I typically go with one-half cup, or less, as a portion size for cooked beans, lentils or peas. However, my SWAMI portion recommendation for nuts/seeds is only one-quarter cup (or one tablespoon for nut/seed butters). Most days, I think this is a lot for a serving size. I can't imagine trying to eat a full one-half cup serving of nuts/seeds four times a week. Even with cooked beans, I think that my serving size mean average is probably somewhere closer to one-third cup rather than one-half cup.

my swami says 9 times per week! Between the peanut butter and handfuls of walnuts here an there, it's not hard to do. My swami also is mute on portion sizes of beans, I'm guessing I should eat as many as I feel like, which is few .

I get 9 servings weekly and probably eat at least that much.  
I always  have a large spoonful of either peanut butter or almond butter along with whatever I eat for breakfast. I snack almost daily on walnuts, almonds, pecans,  peanuts or soy nuts. Beans are my "meat" serving for lunch or dinner when I am not eating fish or turkey. I put sunflower seeds on most of my daily salads. Yup, probably going over amounts suggested but....its working well for me.

Hi grey rabbit and cajun, wow, nine times weekly, that's a lot. The only foods I have that frequently are fruits and vegetables (which is good). I guess you could say I have meat that often, as well, but it is all divided out amongst one type or another so no one protein really takes precedence. Probably similar to y'alls variety of nuts/seeds. I haven't actually looked at a type A's food guidelines (and y'all are both Teachers). I'll take a look to see how yours compares with mine. I'm probably more in line with you on beans, grey rabbit. I have to remember to have them a couple of times each week, kind of like medicine. I do like nuts/seeds, though. Inherently, I'm just not a bean (or grain) person. I'm best with a plateful of greens and a good piece of meat (or pastured eggs). (:

Andrea, I'm glad you're not easily perturbed. As a nurse, you probably have seen it all ... or at least heard about it. I, on the other hand, realized some time ago that there really are some things in life I simply don't want to see, which pretty much excluded me from the medical profession (and being a fashion photographer). <:
