None (can't eat or don't like)
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.
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.
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 hate you for making me choose between potatoes and rice. HATE.
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.

Potatoo !!! me gusta mucho and so many ways to make them all u need is a bit of imagination ... 2nd would be pasta and Rice I almost never eat unless I need it in a temporary diet or something....
Also to that guy saying potatoes give you diabetes lol... just lol.
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
Much as pasta and potatoes are delicious in their own right, I prefer rice.

Because of this thread, I consider ordering Noodles for dinner.

Rice for me, although, being Belgian, I love my fries
Monk, I need a monk!!!
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.
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
