    That's why bread is superior many breads can be eaten alone and still taste awesome.

    Wouldn't call pasta a staple, might wanna try wheat and instead of potatoes maybe corn, since those are the 3 top macronutrients of the world.

    Of all 3 I'd go with pasta, why? Because there's rice pasta, and potato pasta (e.g. gnocchi), even vegetable pasta! It comes in many variations and I love it <3
    Asians don't eat all that much rice, their portions are about 1/10th of the amount Americans shove into their face.

    So much diabeetus in this thread.

    I am sorry but your knowledge is wrong too.

    They contain caloric value and they don't cause diabetes on their own, maybe that's hard to accept.

    Potatoes. I guess since my native people eat this quite a lot.

    Potatoes are the best tasting and has a good texture, rice is ok, pasta is gross...I would never eat it alone.
    I'm going to super rich one day, remember my face!!!

    Potatoes = rice > > pasta

    No idea how anybody eats any of them just plain though.

    Maybe its just the way I cook rice but it always get mushy after being cooked and needs some kind of other vegetables and soy sauce to go with it.

    Potatoes need gravy or ketchup on them too.

    I love potatoes. Boiled potatoes, onion, vinegar, olive oil, oregano some salt BAM you got yourself an awesome potato salad.
    But nowadays rice is rising up a lot on my preference, steamed chicken fillet with half a cup of rice, a special mustard sauce that I make in seconds and BAM instant meal :P
    Regarding the carbo bs, and since you are quoting Greeks: μέτρον ἄριστον. Moderation is best. Chocking in carbos is definitely not a great thing, same goes for almost any kind of food though.

    Well that's funny I made a thread EXACTLY like this one about two years or so ago I think.

    Pasta, for the record.
    All I would ever want and need is a hug.

    Actual staples. They go well with my bowl of nails for breakfast.

    I prefer rice. Just doesn't feel as heavy as the other two to me. Since I went through a pretty thorough dietary change, rice became my #1 supplement. AND it's low fat. I still try to keep the income low, tho.

    #2 are potatoes, delicious, low fat

    #3 pasta, still love em, but I try to stick to food without pasta

    Lost ~15lbs since I started working out again (in 2,5 months) and stopped eating white flour products, which isn't that fast, but finally a way to eat without having the feeling of missing out on anything

    mad

    Much as pasta and potatoes are delicious in their own right, I prefer rice.

    Cous cous is really good. Anyways, I don't really have a favorite, I like all of them. Although I hate cooking rice because it always sticks in the pan... Damn rice.

  19. #179
    I voted for rice since alot of the food I cook is accompanied by rice (I love stir frys) I don't normally cook with potato as it takes too damn long to cook and prefer to buy the lazy person's premade mash potato on the rare occasion that I am making something with potato in it... Pasta... I LOVVVE pasta too but I cook with rice way more than Pasta

    He probably should have used the word "starches" instead of "staples".
