Maybe it's because I finally got my head out of the bowl of pasta, the bowl of white rice and the bowl of mashed potatoes and realized there is healthier food out there! I do believe there was some negative news recently and that got my attention, that quinoa crops were too expensive for the poor people to eat anymore due to it's recent popularity. Actually I think the story was linked here in a 3FC thread.
