Does your daily food intake have to consist of rice? White rice, Brown rice, whatever.
Can you stand not eating rice for a couple of days?

I know Cubans, Haitians, and Filipinos gotta have rice in some of their meal courses. I don't know what other cultures/countries eat rice as part of their daily food intake.

From the age 7 till now, my younger brother pretty much reared here in America. My relatives sometimes tease him, saying he's been "Americanized." He barely remembers his mother's tongue and he barely eats rice like his family do.

Bleh. He's just being a rebel... without a cause.

Forget the carbohydrate, gluten free, and fat discussion. I'm just curious who's who and/or which cultures that eat rice.

Nope . . . more of a potato guy . . . If I make rice in my cooker, I'll make enough for a couple days or more, though.

I'll usually get Nishiki, it tastes better than the cheaper stuff.
If I go to Uwajimaya, I'll splurge and get Hitomebore...... It cooks a bit differently.

I have tried other rice like Mahatma but it has a lot of gunk in it.

Not a big fan of brown rice but I do like "wild" rice . . . (Most wild rice isn't.)

Being German from Russian . . . my mom's borscht has rice as well as potatoes. My grandma used to make this totally killer sauerkraut & rice with pork ribs in it. My mom makes it once in a while. My own attempts haven't turned out at well as I like. Another thing that was made was this funky goulash with hamburger and vegies with a bunch if rice in it . . . we were reeeeeeeally poor at the time so there was lots of rice in that hamburger stew.

Stuffed peppers were something that got made for family potlucks and . . . some may think this heresy, but we would make Stroganoff with rice rather than noodles.

So I am half Filipino and as long as I can remember my Dad would always eat tons of rice. I was born in the States but I can't eat any form of meat without rice, (bread will sometimes do it actually but I prefer rice) Now I actually eat more rice than anyone else in my family. My Grandparents who were born in the Philippines tell me I should cut back on rice. On a side not I don't like any type of rice but white, brown, Indian, Spanish, whatever if it is not white rice I don't enjoy it. If I have to chose between no rice and Spanish though I will take it, just only in small amounts. I would eat it without the other types of rice but I have a hard time eating anything without it so I think putting up with it is better.

I eat rice every second day or so. White rice is easy to make and tasty. I'm a major carb junkie; I can eat bowls of the stuff without batting an eye. Same with potatoes or pasta or basically any starchy food.

Why did I assume this thread would be about driving East Asian imports every day.

I used to eat rice everyday, but then I took a trip to the university.

Yeah, I know that was a shit tier attempt.

Well in the Caribbean they've swapped to having rice 5 times a week at least. In the past they used to use a lot of corn, yam, cassava, sweet potatoes and bananas.

Peruvian here.
I eat white rice 5-6 days a week (of course, accompanied with Peruvian food).
I also eat spaghetti with Huancaina sauce.

In my neighborhood I still see those types of cars all the time.

OT: I'm Chinese, and on most days, my meals consist of rice.

My family is german so rice is not something we had on a regular basis. More likely to have something along the lines of potatoes, in a lot of different forms with a side of some sorta meat. Only time we had rice was when we didn't have a side and we were in a hurry to make supper. I probably eat rice more now as an adult than I ever did as a kid due to the fact it's cheap and you can store it a lot longer than you can potatoes.

Perogies still beat any rice dish any day of the week though.

I do like rice but I don't eat it that much unless I'm cooking something like Curry, or stews. Or if I get take out. I'm more of a bread person I've tend to eat at least some form a bread day to day.

I don't eat a ton of rice, but I'm not averse to it.

I'll admit that the thread's name made me think this was going to be about putting huge spoilers and fart cans on your Honda.
