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.
