    Default Eating low carb foods


    Quinoa is an excellent substitute for rice or potatoes. It is
    gluten-free. It is cooked just like rice but does not have the
    carbohydrates that give rice the high glycemic index. I have cooking
    tips and recipes on my website 'Monica's Fine Foods'
    (http://www.monicasfinefoods.com). If you are not looking for fancy
    recipes, just cook it and pour some Davoli extra virgin olive oil along
    with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss and enjoy!

    Quinoa is NOT low carb! It is also not cooked just like rice. Why don't
    you go away with your spam?!

    Yeah, quinoa hasn't seemed low carb to me when I read the label. And it is
    expensive. And when I've had it in the past I was unimpressed. It could be
    billed as a replacement for couscous...and I suppose it is a good choice if
    you have issues with gluten.

    The first time I made it, I did it as a pilaf. Angela thought it was rice
    and loved it. It didn't love me. Raised my BG more than rice would.

    I did try it a second time. Angela hated it!

    I do buy a corn and quinoa pasta. I use it in pasta salad. Works for me
    because I put so many vegetables in it. Not so much pasta. Angela does
    like that.
