I heard about this from a buddy and im thinking about giving it a try. its a grain from south america and would make a good substitute if your tired of eating rice. I read up on it a little bit and on top of being a grain its also a complete protien im kind of suprised this is not more popular and more widely used. what do you guys think?

It's becoming more popular - I see it in more grocery stores and a lot of my clients use it.

Love the stuff. use it almost everyday.

Complete protein, good GI/GL for keeping insulin levels steady, and doesn't sit heavy in the stomach.

its good. just make sure you cook it long enough. If you don't give all the time it needs to absorb the moisture it sucks. kind of like if you under cook rice, but this is a little worse.
you are also supposed to rinse it before cooking, but i have no idea how you do this since it is so small, I haven't found a colander that won't let it fall through.

I absorb my cous cous in Chicken Stock and cover it with cling wrap and it always cooked it perfectly. You dont need to cooked it long enough and it usually takes 8 mins for me.

Ive been eatin it on my contest prep right now and love it. Especially on leg days, 1/4 cup is like 30g carbs so I don't feel too full like I do when I eat something more volumous like oatmeal. I'll eat it with some ground turkey and drizzled with a little Walden Farms Honey Dijon. Thats money right there.

new tint guy on the forum offering discounts

I am new to the board, but I own a business called Chula Vista Tint company and I wanted to offer everyone that is a member on the board to give them a discount on all Chula Vista Window Tint because I offer a great service at a very affordable price. So send me a PM or let me know if you need a quote even if you need something different like National City Tinting where I can offer a little better price then my competition. I also offer my mobile services throughout San Diego, California, but most of my clients are in Chula Vista Tinting membership club for all milatary members as well.

from the Andes

Quinoa is a grain/rice of the Inca's ,it is fantastic I would rather eat it than rice any day and it has more protein than anything except red meat (don,t eat red meat) meat meat equals Mad Cow Disease,Swine Flu,Bird Flu plus numerous heart clogging , intestinal cancers, Wake Up a message from the maker" RED Meat is going to Kill YOU"

Try quinoa (pronounced keenwa) cooked in chicken stock with cumin, chipotle and or ancho chile powder, diced seeded tomato, black beans, Right at the end of cooking add lime juice, chopped fresh cilantro and grilled chicken breast (season with salt and pepper to taste). You can add raw diced chicken to this when you start to cook the quinoa if you dont feel like grilling the chicken. This is a great one pot dinner loaded with low gi carbs and tons of protein.

Quinoa and Couscous are 2 different things here. I have been eating it for about 3 years and really like it. I first tried it at Native Sun foods deli.

Quinoa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Doh lol I thought it was the same, my bad! Reading some stuff about it. Couscous is actually a form of pasta, made from wheat. Quinoa is a whole grain. Couscous is traditionally from Morocco. Quinoa is from South America. Unless your couscous is whole-grain, quinoa is better. Quinoa is very high in protein. I've never had quinoa.

So i guess I was wrong even though I am a bloody Chef. :banghead:

Actually I was wrong mate. I thought quinoa was cous cous type, but its similar but not the same. It is similar to Cous Cous and Bulgur. I am learning something new every day. All is well at my end mate! and you?

Aloha PM,

Have used it off and on, never really acquired a taste for it. Definitely need to give it a go and experiment with some different additions to it.
