What's life without red beans and rice?
It would probably be a lot like being an angry leftist masquerading as a liberal democrat.

Rice + Beans is what you need . I eat that at least 4 times a week now with the meat being more of a seasoning .
Survival: Actions I need to do NOW to live another 5 minutes to 3 days. Prepping: What I do to insure my family makes it thru an adverse event lasting 3 days to 3 months  Seeds and livestock: What you need for long term subsistence.
Texas folks dont eat rice. Thats cajun food.
Rice and beans? I like both and I buy both. I just picked up a 25 pound box of par-boiled rice for under $10 at the store. I also picked up a 4 lb bag of pinto beans for $3. Beans are more nutritious and filling but rice is cheaper. Rice is easier to cook and needs less water. I sometimes eat just plain rice with soy sauce, nothing else. Rice with butter is also good. I make my beans in a slow cooker with salt pork and or bacon. Both will last a long time if stored properly.
