Are beans considered vegetables? I understand they are classified as a legume. What is the difference between a bean and grains? Both are cultivated plants and sometimes beans are considered vegetables but grains never are.

Beans are vegetables. They grow on plants that are legumes. Grains are the seed of grass plants (as a rule, there may be some exceptions). If you search with define:legume define:vegetable define:grain you will get definitions of each word. Some for "grain" will, of course, refer the sand and other things.
