    Totally off topic, but my son is in Peru right now. He and 2 friends took their surfboards and backpacks and are there till April 2. They spent a week in Lima but left in search of better waves and took a bus to Mancora today.

    Back on topic: Maybe I'll ask him if he's had any quinoa yet.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Wow -- Thanks for all the responses! As usual, an issue like this is more complicated than it seems at first glance. I tend to have free market views, and appreciate the rebuttals to the opening article. But I'm also learning more about the importance of buying local -- although that isn't always possible. However, in a global economy, with transportation getting easier and faster, "local" is becoming a wider and wider area. I now live in Wisconsin, but the other day I was shopping at a neighborhood food co-op and bought a bag of organic onions. When I got them home, I realized they were shipped from Sedro-Woolley, Washington (state) -- the small town I went to high school in! That certainly felt "local!"

    Also a note for anyone eating Primal/Paleo due to Celiac or auto immune issues...read an article recently that said that they got around to testing Quinoa for an auto immune response in Celiacs (most likely because it's a common grain that Celiacs use in their diets). There are 18 varieties of Quinoa - you will never be told which you are eating, as they are never labeled. Of the 18 varieties, 4 of them produced a clear response in Celiacs (and most likely this would pertain to gluten sensitive people too). So, yet another reason to just eliminate the grains.

    Surfing is pretty big over there (for those close to the water anyway, I never did it) I hope they have fun and don't run into issues. I love my country but it's not exactly the safest.

    They spent last summer at Muizenberg beach in South Africa. They learned a few hard lessons on that trip. (pickpocket - iPhone, stolen laptop, bank card, $, etc) They are older and wiser now. I think/hope They are staying at Mancora for a couple of weeks and then going to Machu Picchu.

    That's really cool, I'm hoping to go to Machu Picchu for the first time in August of this year.
