Beans and rice are the classic foods for eating cheap, so we eat them a lot!
We've found that now that we're used to brown rice, the white rice seems kind of flavorless and bland. We've got some white rice in our food storage that is up for rotation and it's almost a chore to work our way through it.
(And speaking of food storage...if you use the LDS Home Storage Centers for food storage...they don't offer brown rice. If you want to store brown rice, though, you can buy it yourself in bulk and they will let you borrow a canning machine to put the rice into the #10 cans yourself at home.)
