I didn't know green peas were starches!? I thought they were vegetables! I also thought beans were protein, not a starch. I can sort of see why they might be starchy...can anyone go into more about this? Anyway. great tips. I really liked that she gave all these examples so it seems more realistic...

Beans are proteins! :) "Proteins can also be cheese, eggs, tofu, nuts, peanut butter or beans"

But I definitely didnt know that green peas were starches! That's really interesting.. same thing with corn! Who knew?
