yes yes

Black beans, white beans, red beans, pinto beans, lentils, black-eyed peas, soy beans, chickpeas

Oh yeah! Legumes are an excellent choice when you're expanding my diet! Just don't give me too much of beans and legumes in the beginning so that I can get used to digesting them. It would be best to start our legume adventure with lentils as they are the most easily digestible.
