    Brown rice, whole grain pasta rolled oats and groat for me. Doubt that any of them can give me diabetes ;p

    Pasta you go gurl!

    Pasta>Potatoes>Rice
    Love all, but pasta and potatoes are really close together. Not sure if possible to decide between them because they go with diffrent kind of meals. As in "Fish and potatoes", not "fish and pasta", or heh maybe some people do that
    Rice doesnt taste anything, but its good with chicken i suppose. But obv need spices or sause or i wouldnt be able to eat it

    They're all fantastic, but pasta's what's up. My favorite fuel for running.

    Pasta!

    Rice is one of my favorite as well, but it can't compete with pasta. I can't stand potatoes, it's to dry.

    That's a lie. You just don't understand the concept of 'staple foods'.

    Second is pasta I guess and rice third.

    I love them all, just 1 more than the other 2.


    So what is your preffered carbohydrate source?

    You forget noodles and couscous. No I don't think noodles fall into the pasta category because there are so many different types of noodles.

    I greatly prefer potatoes because they can be cooked so many different ways and all are good. Pasta I can only eat with a good marinara sauce. I hate it plain and don't really care for cheese or cream sauces. Rice I can also only eat with a good sauce or gravy although I do like fried rice and yellow rice.

    You can put more stuff on rice to make it good!
    But i really like potatoes warm and cooked! smells so good

    You don't get diabetes from anything you eat, not even sugar. Diabetes is a condition that can be aggravated by certain foods but none of them cause it.

    I think all types are good by the way. There are so many different ways of making them that it's a shame to miss out on any of them.

    All of them are far from being "useless foods" as someone said. Carbs are a necessary part of the diet. The real useless food is lettuce. You can get just about as much nutritional value from that stuff as from a wet paper towel. It just fills you up while providing very little if any benefit. That's why I very rarely eat salads as they are always filled with mostly lettuce. I have always had a very high metabolism and I need more protein and calories than the average person does and I never gain weight no matter what I eat.

    I really like all 3, depends on my mood. =) Picked pasta because I like it slightly more than the others. Prolly pasta, rice, then potatoes.

    I went Pasta but I like Potatoes too especially Mashed Potatoes with melted butter...Yummy.

    Rice I hate with a passion ever since I was a kid. I don't like it at all.

    Can't you make pasta out of both potatoes and rice?
    Go Hawks!!!!

    Pasta for sure. recipe inc!

    Cook spaghetti. While its cooking take Olive oil, tiny (and i do mean tiny) bit of butter + garlic. Simmer in a pan until garlic is a light brown.

    Combine the completed spaghetti (drained of course) to your pan with the olive mixture and mix together and leave on a low heat for about 2 minutes.
    add Oregano to serve and cheese if you are feeling naughty! (Gouda or gtfo)

    fast and so fkin good. I actually cry inside a little if i see anyone defile pasta with that lazy tasteless shit from jars when making your own sauces is cheaper and soo much better. This one being my particular favourite, but making a nice tomato sauce or creamy cheese sauce is just as easy!

    potatoes and rice even more so I could live without no sweat

    What are you on about?
    Portugese breakfast consists of bread. So does a typical Spanish breakfast. (Wikipedia yo) Ever heard of a crumpet or a croissant, or a bagette? there are the most western European countries all that eat bread.

    Yeah, I do and his listed 3 aren't even the top 3 world staples. Corn, wheat and the only one he got right is rice.
