    Primal Fuel


    got my #s from fitday... maybe we're talking cooked vs uncooked cups?


    either way I was just looking for something safe I could cook my starch addicted DH as I wean him off grains.

    Well, Willow, I tried being gluten-free before I became Primal.


    I gave up all the glutenous grains, and certainly all breads and noodles, and just had a few non-conventional grains like buckwheat and quinoa. Heck, they're not even grasses!


    Then I went Primal, and after just a few days I tried adding a tablespoonful of quinoa to a vegetable and meat stew to give it a little more body.


    It gave it more body all right. I felt CRUMMY.


    I decided that as far as my digestion is concerned, yes, it's a grain.


    That said, it used to taste nice with some butter and soy sauce on it, and it's surely a lot better than many other grains. Maybe you could use it as a transition for your husband.
