Although these are listed on Typebase as good food for As, they do not appear on my Swami, not even as Avoid, let alone as Superfood as I would have expected. Has anyone else notice this anomaly? ??)

Should be listed under vegetable protein as "Snap, String, Beans"

They are listed on my Swami as superfoods under Vegetable Proteins, as snap, string, Beans with a diamond for me.

I have these two listings, both in Vegetable Protiens...

Snap, String, Beans ◊
Haricot Beans

I thought haricot beans were the skinny green beans, if not, I don't know what they are...  ??)

They are a super food for me but not a diamond.

Does anyone else eat these as a vegetable, and not a protein?  I can't touch any kind of bean/legume with a 10 ft pole, but I down green beans by the pound.

Hi Jenny,

They somehow do not appear when "English, UK" is selected. Print the report with "English, US" vernacular and you'll see it under "vegetable proteins.

Yeah, the green beans around here don't contain very mature beans inside the pod, so it's mostly the green exterior.  I consider them veggies and usually throw in some red onion and rainbow chard while they cook.  And a bit of EVOO and Himalayan pink salt.  ;)

The show up for me as "Snap, String, Beans" in both "English, UK" and the "English, US" vernaculars. In Spanish vernacular "Judía verde, Habichuela"

Yes, I can eat copious amount of these and it makes me feel so good. In TCM beans help a damp constitution and thus drains excess fluid out of tissues. I especially love the big, flat green beans that come out at the end of summer...can't get enough of those.

Eric, you may be interested in this book by Daverick Leggett - Recipes for Self-Healing. It is a book for cooking with the TCM principles, but with foods that are more common to our culture. I think you would enjoy this. It is not just a cookbook but explains the body's constitution through the knowledge of TCM. Most of it corresponds with my SWAMI.  :)

I also eat green beans as a vegetable, but I eat plenty of other legumes as well... ;D

This sounds great.  I try to follow the principles of Chinese Medicine also, with my genotype/btd as the foundation.  The combo is a perfect prescription for good health, in my experience.

I only get "runner beans" in SWAMI GenoType (Which is the same food as "Snap, String, Beans" when "Report Language" is set for "English-US").  

I assumed we were talking SWAMI Xpress. I get "Snap, String, Beans" for both English-US and English-UK in SWAMI Xpress (and "Judía verde, Habichuela" when I switch "Preferred Vernacular" to Spanish).

If you are getting SWAMI Xpress to switch names, I am missing a setting or I need to use a proxy server to move myself out of the US.

I had them at lunch. My family has allways grown and used them as a vegetable. You can let them grow older, mature, then shell the dried beans out and use them as a protein. That doesn't sound advisable in your case though.

Snap,string,beans are under veg proteins and are a neutral on my swami. I eat them as a veggie and love them. I enjoy a wide variety of beans and legumes. :)

Thanks so much to you all for supporting me through this particular seniors moment...I just looked again, and there they are on my English version of SwamiExpress under the word Snap! It's a bit of a worry, but I know you won't judge me! ;D

I am the same as Eric.  I have been staying away from all types of beans, even green beans.  However, I decided to test my Swami Xpress this week to see if I can handle black beans which are Superfoods for me.  I made black bean hummus.  I didn't react and I am trying the hummus again tonight just to be sure.

Possum, I get stomach pains, headaches and my sinuses get stuffed up.

Victoria, I do the same exact thing!  Especially based on the nutrional guidelines as put forth by Dr. Stephen T. Chang. :)
