Quinoa vs Buckwheat?

I've been recently researching both quinoa and buckwheat and I am curious to know what peoples' experiences have been like with either one or both?

I have just begun fasting, doing a 4-6 condensed eating window 5 times a week. And my goal is to eat overall healthy whether I'm fasting or not and as a person who LOVES pasta and bread, I'm looking at healthier alternatives, which is how I came across quinoa and buckwheat. I absolutely love spaghetti squash so I am aware that that's a great alternative but I am curious to know more about these items.

Please share your knowledge! It would be great appreciated :)

I love quinoa. Make sure you rinse it before boiling it, or you'll get white fluffy stuff (ok to eat, but doesn't look appetizing). Boil quinoa for 8 minutes, and it will be cooked perfectly.

Here's a dish I used to make before SCD:

1 can Black Beans

2 ears fresh Corn

1/2 cup Red Onion

1/8 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped

1 large Tomato, cut into medium-size pieces

1 clove Garlic, minced

2 tsp Cumin

3 tbsp Lime Juice

Canola Oil

1 cup dry Quinoa

Rinse quinoa thoroughly in fine mesh strainer. Boil quinoa for 8 minutes.

Cut corn off cobs. Briefly heat canola oil in large frying pan, and add all ingredients. Do not overcook (I like the corn to be a bit crunchy still). Serve over quinoa or mixed with quinoa.
