Rice is our major or let's say our staple food here in the Philippines and it is a part of our culture and our way of living. I'm wondering if other country too eat rice as Filipinos do, I know Chinese and Koreans eat rice too but I don't know about other countries. Do you eat rice too? If not, what is your main food or dish? Care to share some ideas regarding your countries traditional foods and stuffs?

Here in My country we have such a huge variety of food choices that one could eat a different food almost every day. One of the big staples is potatoes. My family will eat rice about once a week. I am trying to find new ways to fix it for them.

I got your point. I think you have different preferences in food and rice is not involve there. I must agree with you that not all people wants to eat rice, we have choices in what we will be having for our meals...

I think combining those stuffs (the rice and the vegetables) is a healthy diet. It is good for our body. That's nice to know that you too eat rice with a dish. =)

Yeah, but it is not my main dish. I cook with it a lot though. But I think we are more of a meat country it seems. I don't really eat meat but it seems like everyone has to have meat with their meal.

My Daughter could eat rice every day at every meal, if we gave her that choice. I like rice, But it has to be seasoned, with vegetables and or meat. It is a major staple in this house, cause we have it at least 3 times a week. I also love rice and raisins for Breakfast with a little cinnamon sugar. YUM.

Jeiyah I stay in India.Here people do have rice.For South Indians and the Indians staying in the states of West Bengal,Orissa rice is the dominant food.While fr North Indians and those staying in the West it is not the main part of their food.They have pancakes made of wheat and other grains instead and rice forms just a small part of their diet.

Americans eat way too much beef! That's my opinion anyway and I'm an American so I can say that. We cut out the beef in our house about a year ago, and mainly eat fish or chicken dishes. But the meat is usually the side dish. Most times served over noodles or rice, which is more economical, anyway!
