How to safely consume beans if you have Alopecia
Beans contain a lot of nutrients and when you prepare them well, you can get a ton of health benefits from them without the worries of harmful compounds.
Many diet protocols recommend against eating beans and legumes, claiming that they contain compounds that are harmful. In fact, these compounds are not a concern at all if you prepare beans correctly. You don’t have to miss out on the amazing benefits that beans and legumes provide.
How to safely prepare beans:
* Soak dry beans for 1/2 to 1 day.
* Change water periodically and rinse beans really well.
* Cook the beans at boiling point continuously (100 degrees C or 212 F) for 20-30 minutes.
Some slow cookers cook at low heat over a long period of time. While the beans may be soft at the end of the cooking process, the harmful compounds in these beans can increase by up to 5 times when heated at low heat. Make sure to use high heat to cook beans.
