I don't eat a lot of meat. I'm always combining grains and legumes because their combination gives you the protein your body needs.
In his new book "Eat & Run," ultramarathoner Scott Jurek says you can eat, for instance rice at one meal and beans at another and still get all the protein. In other words, they don't have to be consumed at the same meal.
I don't have any reason to doubt Mr. Jurek but I'm just double-checking, is this true?

Houmous making. Either I get the right flavour and it sticks together like Play-Doh, or it's the perfect dipping/spreading consistency yet tastes of water. What am I doing wrong? Any recipes based on a standard size can of chickpeas? [more inside]

Thanks to a MeFi friend, I postally exchange my favourite weakness (American, Virginia-grown peanuts, the best in the world) with theirs ( >70% cocoa dark chocolate). As the next exchange is coming up and my scant experience of U.S. nuts is limited to Beer Nuts
Cocktail Peanuts, I need to know what other roasted, salted, expertly packed American nuts are worth trading for? [More inside.
