Neither lentils nor quinoa are grains (and lentils are not legumes). This is one of the things that bothers me about Paleo, to be honest, at least as a dietary philosophy translated through people on the internet: much of the agricultural and anthropological and botanical justification for it is incredibly inaccurate. If someone's pushing people not to eat quinoa, say, because grains are bad because of X,Y,Z, and quinoa's a grain, so quinoa is bad ... well. I have issues with that logic chain. Maybe the source material is better in that regard.
As a way of eating -- have meat, eggs, fat, fruit and vegetables; avoid everything else -- it's pretty cool, my personal environmental issues with large-scale meat consumption aside.
