rice an beans also make a compete protein, but they are just not indicated
for diabetics as the carb content is very high, too high to be used as a
major part of a meal. As has been mentioned, a few sprinkled on a salad
or in a soup are Ok, but as a full portion beans are a problem for
diabetics. For non-diabetics like you, they are a good food, just not for
us diabetics here.
When I make something that calls for beans, I tend to use 1/2 real beans
and 1/2 black soybeans. They don't get as soft as beans, but they're an
OK substitute and very low carb. I can buy them canned in Whole Foods
and at food co-ops.
