i personally can't afford quinoa as a regular part of my diet. the cheapest i have found it is around $5 a pound, compared to other grains at around $1 a pound it doesn't make sense to me to buy it.

$13 a pound bag red mills. So would it be just as healthy to eat brown rice and barley for my grains.<br><br>
What other grains are good for me..<br><br>
Thanks

I buy quinoa in big bags at Costco. It's pretty inexpensive this way. Still costs more than rice, but I use quinoa for different things than I use rice for.</div>

That's where I get my quinoa at also. Love making quinoa/spinach patties with the stuff. I don't think I'd buy that much of it if I had to pay $13/pound.

13 dollars is really high. I'd shop around even online for better prices. Yes, quinoa is worth it, it is a complete protein that is gluten free. It has the same 8 essential amino acids that meat does, which is why it's a complete protein. Since it is gluten free, it also makes a great seed, since it's not really a grain, for those with sensitivites or celiac disease. Definately try to find a cheaper source! Even amazon might have it cheaper. I buy mine at the local co op, for $3.29 for organic quinoa.<br><br>
