    Quinoa can be found in bulk at most health food stores, Whole Foods, etc. That is definitely the cheapest option, I ate quite a bit of it before going grain free. I always enjoyed it as a breakfast porridge or cold salad

    Ohh ya, I loved it in the mornings with my soy milk and nuts and stuffs. Huh, I had forgotten I used to eat that. I guess bacon makes you forget that other breakfasts exist.

    I would buy it in bulk and/or health food stores. At the grocery store they were trying to sell it for $10 for a tiny bag! The 'bulk barn' sold it for .99 cents a pound.
    The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being proven right or pleasantly surprised.

    Here's the big article on it which I think is less friendly towards it:

    It looks like it has a comparable GL load and carb count to a sweet potato, for what it's worth.
