    Sweet Potato vs Wild Rice vs Quinoa

    Shop Now
    I think I know the primal ranking of these 3 and I think it's the order I listed it in but I wanted to get other PB'ers opinions. I'm looking to add one a starch to my diet about 3 times a week (the days I lift weights) and just wanted to see what the best PB choice is.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    you got the order right, but are those the only starches you are looking at? sweet potatoes are great because they are probably the tastiest and most nutrient dense of those three, but there are other kinds of potatoes to look at...and all kinds of squash.

    Unless you're particularly sensitive to oxolates, sweet potatoes are definitely the best, most nutritious, most satiating and tastiest choice. Also the lowest GI which probably isn't as important pwo though.

    I like doing spaghetts squash as well. But to me nothing is better then my Bison Sweet Potato Hash.

    a couple of times per week i have a half a cup of black rice...I know it's not primal, but with veggies and some protein, it is a special treat. I LOVE roasted sweet potatoes too.. or whipped....either way...fabulous!!!
