I'm tired of eating rice, it's so common here as breakfast, I just finished eating it. To make it unique, you can eat it with cabbage, plantain, carrot, green beans, sweet corn and the likes. When you add those veggies, it will bring a unique taste. Do you think rice is a universal food, I mean is rice everywhere?

Rice is the staple food of Asians. I think rice is not staple food in america or europe. Sorry but it's not universal.

No. Usually, rice is eaten in Asian countries and some other places. The western countries and other countries in the world have their own staple foods like potato , corn or bread.

I think that rice is everywhere. It is inexpensive and filling so people use it as a filler to add to their meals so their groceries don't cost as much.

That is the point I'm making. Rice is easy to cook, it goes with beans, and it's filling

@pureme it is also great to buy, along with beans when you are on a fixed budget.

I thought about rice for breakfast this morning, but decided against it. Yes, I think it's everywhere.

Rice is the staple diet of South east Asia at least, but as lunch or dinner. I haven't heard rice for routine breakfast before It can be cooked in so many interesting ways and they are really tasty with good nutritional value.
