i've never needed it. my body seems to adapt to them just fine. it does help if you don't start on them all at once, but just gradually add them to the diet and increase a little as you go...
the other thing is that many people cook them with a lot of spices and other things and so if there is any extra gas produced they really notice it. we don't often do that instead we just boil them plain and then use them later (and freeze some too for other times) in other dishes or as a filler. Mom puts some on her salads, i just eat 'em plain or with a little hot sauce and butter on them.

We do about the same, cook the beans with a bit of salt and pepper, then aid whatever we want when done and ready to eat. My favorites are large lima, and pinto beans. Sometimes black beans, etc., etc. My favorite is lima beans cooked with ham hock or just chunks of ham, toss in some chopped onions, maybe some chopped sweet peppers, put over brown rice, and a wee bit of hot sauce for more flavor. The other way is pinto beans with all the fancy stuff over cornbread, again a little hot sauce, wife always leaves out the hot sauce. Would think that after 50 odd years in the south that Maryland girl could get used to a little heat. <G>
She's at her church bazaar today hoping to sell some of her watercolors, generally she does well with church bazaar's. Me and the dawg are going to be napping in the peace and quiet.

Mom has no heat tolerance either. i squirt the hot sauce in my hot chocolate to give it a zip.
i'd gotten away from hot foods long enough that i'd lost most of my tolerance, but after starting with just a few drops of sriracha sauce at a time i can take that pretty full strength now. which was a good thing because the other weekend we grilled out at one of my brother's place and had green chili cheese- burgers. delicious. and the heat didn't over do it at all. my sister in law is from New Mexico and i have other relatives out there besides, so ever since i first discovered New Mexican green chili i've loved that style of cooking and had various relatives teach me their recipes. i love it all.
we don't really eat meat that often these days though. maybe twice a week for me has been normal. when i'm working hard outside i certainly crave it.

i hope she does well. :)
nothing wrong with a bit of a siesta. i am at a good spot to take a little break here with my project today. all the heavy digging is done and the clay/subsoil has been moved out, so now i get to finish up with the light stuff and then transplant and water some strawberries. that should only take a few hours to get done. i was hoping this project was going to be done before the end of September... hahaha... :)
the good thing though is now i'll never have do deal with that clay in this particular garden again. just will have to keep amending the top part and add whatever organic matter and it should keep perking along. the worms will be much happier. it's about 50% decayed woodchips and other humus/dirt, and the rest is mixed in topsoil with some of that clay and whatever sand i added to that garden that i could scrape up and put aside. the soil is so light it actually bounces a bit when i poke it. if i tried to poke the clay i'd break a finger. so those strawberries will be much happier and also just to be thinned out and replanted from younger plants instead of ones that have been in the same spot for five or six years.
when i get done today, i've been planning on making a large burger by putting the slab in the middle of a grilled cheese sandwhich on homemade bread and Mom made chili and stuffed green peppers today. a feast, but i can't eat that much, the burger and a little chili on it might be enough. she also made apple crisps this morning. she's been busy.

My heat level is more like Louisiana Hot Sauce, at my age I can handle a bit of it but the hot stuff just messes me up for a few days. I, too, once had relatives, an uncle, in New Mexico, he and all his family are now gone. I don't know if any of them even had kids or not down the line. The Shirley line is mostly Louisiana and Texas now and I've lost knowing where most cousins, etc. have gone off to. Found some the other day on Ancestry, looks like I have about a few thousand cousins here and yon. I just wanted to know where I came from, mostly Europe, big gang from England, <1% Native American but my folks always claimed a lot, and <1% African. Just a regular old 'merican, wife is the same but no native or african, mostly German and English. Now my kids don't have to spit in a bottle. <G> I suspect the Native American low is that both the Cherokee and the Choctaw tribes took in the whites a very long time ago and blended all.

About three times a week for us, many evenings I just eat cereal with milk and be done with it.

She is a good water colorist but sometimes folks want something else. Our daughter came by to see me today after visiting her mother at the bazaar and we had a nice visit for a change.

I wish I could get out and dig in what passes for dirt here, bad back and failing legs have shot that down. I get to pick stuff occasionally and I do a goodly part of the cooking and cleaning. My mother and the US Navy taught me how to clean, cook, and put everything right. Where I grew up you either worked or you didn't eat. And I have always liked to eat. <G>

I've got about a half loaf of the bread I made early this week. My old bread cutter stand has gone to the dump, now I have to get another one as when I cut just on a board my piece of bread is thin at the top and wide at the bottom. Plus this last loaf was to tall to use two slices so we're cutting the slice in the middle and making it two slices. Sometimes I get carried away with my cooking.

That Red Goats Eye, which google seems not to recognise, look remarkably like an Adzuki, which is the only bean I have had good results from. I tell a lie I did have success growing Broad Beans but nobody in the family really liked them.

no, they are definitely not adzuki beans, i've grown them here before and they do very poorly (we'd need a longer season).
google would not likely recognize the name since i just made it up. :)

aka fava beans... there seems to be a large number of ways to prepare them, but i cannot recall ever eating any of them myself.
i'm really enjoying the scarlet runner beans and the flowers keep the humming birds around happy.
