Sparkpeople says quinoa has 344 calories for 0.5 cups. I know calories vary by brand, but can it vary that much if it is a whole grain? I am tracking it but am having a hard time staying within my calories and staying satisfied when I eat it (maybe not getting as much calories because it is tracking high?). I'm also having a hard time finding a consistent calories estimate on-line. I got mine in bulk so I don't have a package to look at. Anyone figure this out before? Thanks!

I think it's like rice and swells a little when cooked so 1/4 cup uncooked would perhaps make 1/2 cup cooked?

Should be 1/4 cup cooked

It only costs a nickel more to go first class.

Does anyone know if the serving size of quinoa is dry or cooked? The package says the size is 1/4 cup but I did not which one it was
Thanks!!
