so i tried this once several years ago and thought i would run it by F&N to see your thoughts. In a moment of extreme hunger and poverty, i had nothing healthy to eat and was surrounded by nothing but junk foods. All i had was a bag of dried lentils. I'd have normally taken the time to cook them but i was feeling lazy and didn't really give a shit what i ate so i just washed them and swallowed a couple handfuls whole, with a couple large gulps of water. I wasn't hungry anymore and didn't ruin my diet by eating the junk food around me. apparently you can eat most legumes raw except for red beans and kidney beans. I just imagined i was swallowing a bunch of pills.
