Answering the famous Lentils, Quinoa, and Rice question: Lentils are a legume so they are allowed on the program in Phase 1. Quinoa is a GREAT food, but it is too high in calories so it is NOT allowed in Phase 1. You can eat it in Phase 2 when you are adding 500 additional calories to your day. Rice is also not an approved food in Phase 1. Cauliflower rice is okay, and there is a recipe for that up top in the recipes tab!
Hope this helps,
