English term or phrase: \"don\'t know beans\"
"As I covered previously, those eating plant-based diets average about twice the average daily requirement for protein. Those who don't know where to get protein on a plant-based diet don't know beans! Get it?"

ne znati ništa o nečemu
Explanation:
Pozdrav Matija,

U pitanju je igra reči s frazom "not to know beans (about)" - ne znati ništa o nečemu; nemati blage veze s nečim; nemati pojma. E, sad, pošto bukvalan prevod na srpskom ništa ne znači, trebalo bi rešiti na neki drugi način. Sve zavisi od toga šta i kako želite da naglasite. Uzimajući u obzir stil, ja bih možda nešto ovako rekao:

"Onima što ne znaju kako da dođu do proteina(belančevina) na biljnoj bazi, preostaje samo da gledaju u pasulj! Kapiraš?"

Naravno, može i drugačije i bolje...
