My wife read something about Quinoa being neither a grain nor a seed, but like a vegetable. Does anyone have any thoughts/knowledge/experience on incorporating Quinoa into a Paleo plan?

Thanks

It's a seed from a relative of spinach.... not a grass.

Quinoa, which is actually without gluten and preferable for you over most grains, is certainly NOT paleo. You'll need to maintain a strategic distance from quinoa for a couple of reasons – in particular in view of the digestive issues it can result in and due to its high carb content. In case you're transitioning to paleo for the weight reduction profits, you'll most likely need to stay away from quino

Quinoa is a pseudocereal -- it is most closely related to spinach. It is a great alternative if: (1) You tolerate carbs; (2) don't have a leaky gut
