I think this is something that we have to figure out individually, as each of us is going to react differently to these foods. I LOVE quinoa, but at the moment I'm avoiding it because it's more than my starch-sensitive system can handle frequently. Some people may not be as sensitive, but it tends to throw me into a carb-craving cycle, and if I eat more than a tiny bit my digestive system starts to feel icky. There's no right answer here, so I say try it out and see how your body reacts.
We must learn to do what the leaf and the whale and the wind do of their own nature. We must learn to keep the balance. Having intelligence, we must not act in ignorance. Having choice, we must not act without responsibility
