Are Chick Peas Paleo?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I have read one thread about chick peas on this site, and it does not seem to give much insight. Some people say they do well will them, and some do not. My question is this: What are they exactly? Are they legumes? Also, is there anything in them that is particularly harmful? Thanks!

Since when are seeds not Paleo? Gawd, I know I'm old, but seriously, did I miss that much? Did paleo-man/woman somehow get veg/fruit/legumes but miss seeds. I'm not donning a loin-cloth to find better health, as I it's winter in the midwest USA.

Chickpeas are legumes, but if you rinse those babies and soak them for a night, then rinse them again in clean water, they should not cause you any tummy problems that are normally associated with them. Good mixed with garbanzo bean flor and an egg for burgers, and good for hummus with tahini, lemon, and kalamata olives.
