      Probably would be good, but on a Paleo diet
      Quinoa is a no-no. It contains some anti-nutrients called saponins. These little buggers basically punch holes in your gut lining and compromise the integrity of gut health and impair the uptake of certain nutrients. The carbs in the yams are sufficient for maintaining a good balance of macronutrients. But feel free to add anything in the LYK. 🙂
