Before scaring everyone keep in mind that if one is to avoid quinoa because of diverticulitis, the other foods to avoid would be legumes, oats, brown rice and a lot of other fruits and vegetables. And no alcohol.

The saddest part is that we KNOW what Diverticulitis is, and we don't have to Google it. :135:

If something has the potential to bring harm to you, then don't eat it. That should go without saying.

I think the intent of this thread was to share a liking for quinoa, not shoot it down.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

While I agree, there is nothing in the title saying good or bad so it is open to each posters experience.

Mine was not a good experience (We didn't care for the taste) but it had nothing to do with the medical issue.
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

With how much difficulty we're having with pronouncing it, we should rename it.

To something like "bland tasteless crap". Everybody knows how to pronounce it.

- Hi, I think I'd like to order a bland tasteless crap salad
- No you don't. Have a burger instead.
- Oh thank you, I don't know what I was thinking.

See, much easier.

I like to make a tex-mex type salad with quinoa. Cook the quinoa with some chili powder and cumin. When cooked and cooled, toss with black beans, corn, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, olive oil and fresh lime juice.

That sound really good.

I'm going to be buying raw quinoa soon and will be sorta like Alan's cooking show with it, full report and all.

I have extensive diverticulosis and because I had 'heard' that seeds might exacerbate the problem, I asked the surgeon specifically about it. He said that this was 'old school thinking' and assured me I could continue eating sunflower seeds, corn on the cob, apple seeds, whole grain cooked/raw cereal (Red River), bread with flax seeds - anything my little heart and taste buds felt like. That was over 4 years ago and I have not changed my diet or my wine consumption - and have not had an episode of diverticulitis!!

Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

I was going to say I don't eat anything I can't pronounce. Now I have to try it.
