can you survive eating only rice?we all know that rice is our primary food but the question is can you eat only rice without something into it or having a side dish?

No, I can't but with just salt or soy sauce sprinkled over the rice is great. The thing is we need protein to go with rice. So it is still best to eat rice with viand.

I am sure you can eat rice only if you prefer only one favor, but it will be tasteless to me, instead of enjoying your meal, it is torturing. Btw, i known a very 'thin' old man who like to eat rice only in most of his meal, he did survive a long time..lol! Happy mylotting.

I think we can. Not trying to sound mean or anything, but if people in third world countries can do it, so can we. Those of us who are blessed to be in a country full of abundance have grown spoiled with the amount of food we have and sinful with the amount we waste. There are times when I know my food is going to be stretched thin, so I think of rice dishes that will help aide that. For the main meal without anything in it, it would be hard for me. I like rice (if need to be as simple as possible) with just butter and salt. Otherwise, I love it as a side dish. *Pleiades

Yeah, i think you can survive with just rice. However, you will get sick with just eating rice because you need something with the rice so it will taste good.
