You have the egg or.mushroomor other chitin source with the food that contains the chitin binding lectin.
Why don't you have those fermented lentil buns and pancakes. Idlis?
idlis are rice flour and soaked lentils.steamed.
its a south indian food.
am from eastern part ...we have it but its not a part of our daily diet.
do u say soaked lentils are good?
i have lentils of different kind each day.everyday.
but they soaked.
just boiled and stirred later with seasonings and lil' oil.i add carrots in them
.we call it dal.
Lentils are fairly harmless lectin wise, but it still depends on how sensitive you might be. And it's always better to soak seeds to make them think its spring and time to grow. It reduces the antinutriens and makes minerals more bioavailable.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
