Rice and Breakfast: Are they really Important?

        As we were growing up, we were told repeatedly to eat enough rice and to include rice with our breakfast too. Were our parents correct to encourage us to eat this way?

        There are obvious reasons to prefer rice to potatoes. I like rice more than potatoes because there are a limited number of things with which you can eat potatoes, but there are many foods that can be eaten with rice. Apart from its versatility, rice provides our bodies with essential vitamins as well as a source of carbohydrates, protein and fiber. For these reasons, we really should consider it an important part of our daily diet.

        How about breakfast? Is breakfast, really, the most important meal of the day? Eating a good meal in the morning ensures you have all the energy you need for the rest of the day. Rice is a good source of energy, and the brain needs energy as much as any other part of the body. That is why students need to eat a good breakfast. Also, if you eat breakfast, your life becomes regular. It has a big impact on one's health later in life.
