Those pseudocereals do not contain gluten, and contain some nutrients as well. What role do you think they should play on a paleo diet? Do you consume them? (Why?).

I'm a fan of beans and rice. It really fills me up nicely, like I feel satiated afterwards which can be hard to do when you have a crazy fast metabolism like mine. Also, those are both gluten free, if that means anything for your gut.

Not really accurate. The act of going grain free automatically increases nutrient density. Replacing grains with even potatoes and tubers increases miner and vitamin intake.
