Quinoa is not a grain but is often cross contaminated.  We are waiting lab results back on several quinoa products to verify whether or not they contain cross contaminated gluten.  We will be posting to the site soon!

Once you get used to not eating grains you will feel so great you will not want the grains.  At least that is what happened to me!

Do you just eat vegetables and protein?  I get a little tired and bored with the lack of variety.

We have removed all grains to include: Quinoa, Buckwheat, Amaranth, Corn, Rice, etc.  We still have plenty of options for meals.  Eggs, Meat (grass fed pastured), Pork, Chicken, Wild Caught Fish, Vegetables, and Fruits.  For baking I use coconut flour, almond flour, flax meal, chia seeds, tapioca starch, potato starch, and arrowroot starch.  It can be challenging, but with a little practice (and creativity) you can be healthy and still indulge in the occasional bread, cookies, and cakes.    Check the recipe section often, or a quick web search for grain free recipes will help inspire Laugh

Have you received your lab results back on the quinoa products yet.  I have been anxiously waiting to see if there are any out there I can eat.  It would make breakfast so much nicer.
