Since beans and green beans (String Beans), are included in the above Vegetable Beans Category, I'm thinking that the above means I can have 1/2 cup of green beans and 1/2 cup of beans?

My SWAMI has the same two foods on the same list but I've been assuming that I can eat any one food
from that list and count it towards my total for the daily or weekly servings. (depending on how
a food is measured/listed)    I think it means you can have 1/2 cup of green beans OR a 1/2 cup of beans and count each one towards your total for the week.

I think all foods on the vegetable protein list are equal  whether it makes logical sense or not.  It doesn't seem that nuts and string beans would be equal.  Certainly not in calories or fat.  I find this confusing too.  I've got avocado listed with bok choy as Live Foods..

I get 6 cups of Live Foods per day.  Is this saying  I could have SIX cups of avocado per day?...I
could just as well choose 6 cups of bok choy.  I know I shouldn't be choosing one food and eat 6 cups, but your question is the same as mine.

Good question.  I wish I knew the answer.

means you are having 2 of your 5 weekly servings, no?

Considering that the protein count of green beans is VERY LOW compared to the number of grams of protein in dried beans and nuts, I have been treating green beans as a veggie - just not eating them as often as we used to do.

If this is wrong, wrong, wrong, I hope someone who knows for sure why green beans are in the protein category would explain.   Thanks to that "someone" in advance.

Thanks for discussing this. I don't eat beans at all, but this has bugged me too. If I did eat beans, I guess I'd consider 2 options, either to avoid eating beans and string beans in the same day, or, as per Lola's suggestion, substract the 2 servings from the 6 weekly.

Quoted from Chloe
I've got avocado listed with bok choy as Live Foods..

I get 6 cups of Live Foods per day.  Is this saying  I could have SIX cups of avocado per day?...
  In the old days before BTD, sometimes I'd grab a nice avocado - but to finish a whole avocado (i.e. about 1 cup) was much too much. On one hand it was too heavy, too much fat, on the other hand it wasn't satisfying at all... Maybe because it is an avoid...    We'd use it regularly like oil and fat and nut butter, as a part of salad dressing or in sandwiches or just on bread. Some common foods are like that: you can't ignore them, so where are you going to list them? You wouldn't list avocado together with oils and fats. Although the recommendation is 5-6 cups live foods daily avocado included, it stands to reason that one would choose to have plenty of lettuce, bell pepper, broccoli etc and some avocado.

What do you want to hear?  Lola stated that the half cup green beans and the half cup of beans would be 2 of the 5 servings.  That would leave 3 additional veg. protein servings to be 1/2 cup of some other nuts/seeds or 2 Tablespoons of nut butter.

I don't know why green beans, with their relatively low protein content, are included in this group instead of in the Live Foods group.

String beans are listed as a vegetable in the Live Right 4 Your type book.  I know this is NOT the same as a SWAMI list.  However:

Is it possible that young green beans (or "string beans" or "snap beans") that have virtually no "bean seeds" in them at all are actually vegetable live foods - whereas the mature green beans with the big seeds in them that a lot of people eat are vegetable proteins?

That would make sense to me....even though I'm not the expert here by any means.
