In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

I think you are stuck in an ideological straitjacket.

Greetings Jhana4,
If memory serves me well, the reason one doesn't eat soybeans is that they take a god-awful long time to cook, as bland as can be and because they tend to give one a tummy ache. Having cooked soybeans once to make tofu many years ago, I'm more inclined to purchase tofu (and tempeh) ready made.
Some years ago I also had a doctor tell me that the then, current popular wisdom of 'phyto-oestrogens' and their detrimental effect on human health via eating soy-products, was a load of hokum.
As for night-shades - like you, I've eaten millions of tomatos and potatos since my macro-neurotic days.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Has it ever occurred to you that there is a vast industry in the American heartland getting huge tax breaks to produce useless soybeans?
