    Rice vs Quinoa

    Shop Now
    For someone who needs extra carbs, which do you recommend? I've been eating some quinoa lately, but my body doesn't seem to digest all of it... So perhaps rice is more easily digestible? If so, white or brown rice?

    I think rice is probably the least innocous. Quinoa has saponins which can punch holes in the gut (per Robb Wolf, anyway).

    White rice, though tubers would be better.

    Definitely not quinoa -- especially if you follow Robb Wolf. Plus, I think it smells weird.

    White rice is the recommended version for Primal (tho it is not primal -- if Grok saw rice it would not have been polished!)

    But, the bran has anti-nutrients and white rice is a pretty innocuous starch. Still, I'd rather have sweet potato or maybe some jicama for crunch.

    half cup of oats, and low fat wheat toast, with low fat butter works best for me....

    I do a lot of sweet potatoes, which are my preferred carb, and white rice about once a week--I usually get all-you-can-eat sushi after my Friday workout.

    Working for me as refeed food so far.

    Seriously? Have you read the PB? Or is that like an occasional cheat meal or something?

    I eat sprouted brown rice and sprouted quinoa all the time. If you haven't been eating starches or grains, your body might take a week or two to properly adjust. I digest them both perfectly now. If you're not sprouting them, however, you'd be better off choosing white rice.
