Why do a lot of Asian people, especiall Filipinos, love to eat rice every meal? Actually, I am one of them. I don't feel full when I don't eat rice. It really gives me a feeling of satisfaction. It doesn't really have a taste but I cannot explain why I always feel like I cannot live without it. How about you?

Maybe because we really have lots of rice fields here in our country. Or maybe because ever since, even before in the time of our ancestors, it's been a necessity to have rice in every meal? I don't know exactly why this is so.

I guess its just because of the cultures. One reason why we like to eat rice is because we grew a liking to it, more of a addiction. For all i know rice may have been a side dish to Asians at first but then became popular and became a main course!

I think it's because rice is our main agricultural product ever since the early times. It is widely accessible and inexpensive compared to other food products, so it became part of our culture. But I can eat a full meal without rice in it.
