Okay, to be honest, I've never heard of black beans.
I was hoping they didn't mean green and yellow
beans someone left lying around. But I see they
come in a can. For some reason, that's a relief.

Sounds Good otherwise. Enjoy.

I am really confused with eating or not eating starches with meals. Some of you are 5 percent only with carbs but the others who can eat 35 carbs at a meal like this turkey and bean stew, are you able to keep blood sugar below 140 after these kind of meals ?

This is a very old post, and while I didn't know Terrie, I believe she is a type 1 pumper, so she could bolus for extra carbs. Those of us not using insulin have to watch more closely because if we spike, we're stuck with it until it comes down either by itself or with exercise.

That being said, I can tolerate a few bites of black soybeans - not the black turtle beans called for in this recipe - but possibly a good swap for what's called for here, if you already know they don't spike you. It does sound like a good recipe.
