Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

It's not seen as better than fruit in any way whatsoever. White rice is seen as a safe grain and is often called a "safe starch" (especially by those who follow Perfect Health Diet), as it has been stripped of possible negative components, and... (more)

I eat 1/2 cup of white rice as the starchy part of my meal a few times a week. My vote is, if you're gonna eat it, cook it the ol' school way in water. I'm sure the rest of your diet is nutrient-packed enough to make up for it.
