ANS: Question: I am a vegetarian and i eat a lot of lentils and beans. What are some remedies for those of us who's digestive system doesn't tolerate these types of foods well? (ie.bloating and gas)

Beans create a lot of gas but here is a tip: Rinse them in water. That takes a coating off the beans that create gas. This should help a lot. I am not sure if it will also work with lentils but I think that it will. You can also eat many other things like nuts and tofu for protein. Of course you want to balance your protein with fruits and veggies.
