Hi!  I am very new with the nutri bullet system.  I have been reading the Nutribullet natural healings food book, and I have one question.  On page 144  can you combine whole grains with starchy veggies?  When I was reviewing a recipe on page 194, I was confused with the combining the beans with the pasta.  I thought beans were in the protein group.  I would really appreciate your expertise with understanding this concept.


Thank you so much,


Beans are a protein AND a starch as they contain both carbs and protein. Plant based proteins usually are fine to include with starches - they combine for a complete protein!
