  • Can anyone tell me if Quinoa is high in calories please

    Hi mygirl,

    This might help. It gives the figures for uncooked quinoa per ounce, per 100g, or per cup. Calorie-wise quinoa is not too different from brown rice or bulgar wheat.

    To give you an idea. On a fast day with a low-cal curry or casserole 50g uncooked will produce a modest portion for 2, i.e. approx 171 cal divided by 2. On a non-fast day you can probably afford a generous 50g each.

    Thanks Hermajtomomi I am a little mathematically challenged lol. I looked on easy diet diary as well. I like to cook something different on fast days for my husband and myself. I have made cauliflower rice and I really like Quinoa but wanted to know how many calories it had.
