Beans and Legumes for Your Blood Type


Below are the beans that should be optimized for your blood type based on the lectin work of Dr. D'Adamo. Please be clear that I am not endorsing his work as it is my experience that the insulin issues are far more important to balance health than selection of foods based on blood types.

I have found that bean selection based on blood type to be a simple thing to do and most people do not seem to notice much difference between beans, so it makes sense to eat blood type optimized beans.
