Beans and Legumes Low in Net Carbs

Beans are a good source of protein, fiber, and energy for our bodies. Net carbs are equal to total carbohydrates minus the amount of fiber. The theory is that we do not digest the carbohydrates trapped in fiber.

Beans and legumes low in net carbs include tofu, soybeans, mung beans, lentils, broad beans, black-eyed peas, great northern beans, black beans, limas, and navy beans.
