i picked up something new last time at my local health food store. it's a pseudo-grain called quinoa but i can't find it in my good carbs/bad carbs list.
does anyone know whether or not quinoa is phase two safe?
here's what i found on wikipedia:
. In contemporary times this crop has come to be highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (12%–18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete food. This means it takes less quinoa protein to meet one's needs than wheat protein. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten free and considered easy to digest
