I just tried to have 2 cups of cooked quinoa from this restaurant. Only managed to eat a cup and a half and couldn't anymore! No salt added. It had a smallllll flavor of something..it might have been cooked in a liiiittle bit of vegetable broth?? Idk. I noticed that slight flavor when I was eating cooked high vegan. Anyway, the first 2 bites were okay (I've always had a love for quinoa) after that it was just EHH...then i started not really wanting it at all...but I just did heavy weight lifting and needed those last 400 calories...I want to reach at least 2,500 cals. Could've easily done that if I had ripe bananas or enough of the other fruits. So I went outside to find a quick calorie fix. Just ordered plain quinoa. Hm...I just realized cooked sweet potato would've been a better choice. Damn. Sounds so much better too than plain cooked grain!
I feel tiiirrreddd and have a small headache. I started feeling like this at the last two bites I had. This is what happens when you are not stocked up on fruit ! I'm a little dehydrated but don't feel like reaching out for water lol...just want to go to sleep now. Okay...I just had some water :)
what a sucky feeling. And I only had a cup and a half of plain cooked quinoa and this is how I feel ? A long time ago it took Mcdonalds to make me feel this way !
My teeth feel rough too when I lighly grind them together. The restaurant probably didn't rinse the quinoa well??
I did not want to have Dates at this time before bed.
Blahh, I hope I wake up fine tomorrow. I really didn't think I was going to feel this bad from just quinoa...
