I know, I keep wondering about this myself, since there's a lot of starch in
beans. I think it has to do with the whole "glycemic index" business that's
so popular in dieting these days - I suspect that beans have a low glycemic
index. Beans also have a lot of protein and no fat.
Here's the list of beans & legumes from the "foods to enjoy" list on the
official South Beach diet website:
Great Northern beans
Refried beans, fat-free, canned

Thank you, Stefan, I'd appreciate seeing the new information you have.
Checking the Florilegium is on my list of things to do, just haven't gotten
to it yet today.

As long as you're not adding a ton of fat or salt. And, for Phase 1, no
carrots or potatoes. We love bean soups...in the winter... ;)
