here's a comparison.

I love quinoa and it's generally better your you but I like couscous, just remember it's similar to pasta.

I LOVE both of these. However, from what I've read... couscous is more of a "pasta" and quinoa is whole grain-like, which makes it healthier for you - as it has more vitamins and minerals. I'll still eat both, BUT more quinoa for sure!

Quinoa for sure - it's a complete protein! Couscous is basically just little balls of pasta.

Quinoa is a seed and, according to Dr Oz, should be treated as a protein. It is also a low glycemic food while coucous on the other hand is a high glycemic food. My vote is quinoa.
