Growing up in the Philippines my family had a “rice safe” which was a bin with a well fitting lid that held 50? 100? lbs of rice – a lot of rice. And that would last us the year. You don’t need to eat it all at once, just make sure to store it well and you have the comfort of one food that you don’t need to buy for a very long time.


You can have rice as a side dish to normal meals. Cook it with stock for flavor. Have a stir fry over top of it. It doesn’t always have to be the main course. And the good thing is, uncooked rice can last over a year when stored in the fridge, so you don’t need to feel pressured into eating it all right away.


Think of Forrest Gump’s friend Bubba, talking about Shrimp.


I bought a 20 lbs bag of rice when I went off to college thinking I would eat it, It lasted me 3 years.


You can make sweet rice and eat it as dessert! There’s tonnes of rice dessert recipes online (I’ve never made any but I’ve heard of it)
