You can again on phase 4...I believe. No carbs on Phase 1 and 2 though.

No - not during Phase 1 & 2. You could include some in breakfast planning in P3 if you wanted.

If it's not on your sheet, or 0 carbs/0 fat/0 sugars, then no you can't have it.

Quinoa is a grain, and phase 1 does NOT include any grains.

I will be happy to bring quinoa back into my diet! Just gave me an idea for my breakfast grain while phasing off. Thanks all!

Liz actually posted a recipe for quinoa pancakes and quinoa pudding in the Phase 3 breakfasts thread - I am making the pudding tomorrow! I used to love making quinoa pilaf for a dinner side, it's nice to have it back!

Hey Scorbett...where is that pudding recipe? That would make a lovely breakfast idea!
