Amandie - I follow the directions on the quinoa package and substitute low salt veggie broth for the water. My directions has 1/2 cup quinoa to 1 cup water.
Smashlers - I do whatever works. I have done low carb in the past, and it works, but I couldn't sustain it. I like my bread and pasta too much to think that I can't ever eat them for the rest of my life. So, portion control is the way for me. I am switching out my carbs for low glycemic carbs wherever possible. Ex., brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes, light wheat bread, whole wheat pasta.
I enjoyed a glass of wine at Happy Hour with an old friend. It was nice to see my friend, but now I have no points left after dinner. lol. Oh well. It was a one time thing.
