    Well as for harmful jj that depends if someone was going to throw a pot of them at me then potatoes would be more harmful just noticed you added more so it have to be a tin of beans that would be harmful:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    There is always a reason for everything... it's just we don't always know what it is...






    You have to be carefully of spaghetti the ends are so sharp:Eeek:

    Rice on the floor makes you slip over:Eeek:

    Potatoes are safest in my book as they have no pointy bits
    Don't roll to much and squish when you step on them
    And they have eyes to watch you:

    He he he he :Doh::Sad::thumb:

    Seriously, this is what came up on the veggies site

    Quote, "potatoes give more complete balance of aminos, will make u feel much fuller (i.e. eat less), and give a bit more percents of vitamin (especially vit C). also has less than 1 gram of fat, and low calories (161).

    With regard to Rice it depends on whether it is brown (better) or white (more starch)

    Very, very naughty to edit a post by adding words that were not there in the original and then repost it as a quote! :Angry:

    Some Funsters might be misled into thinking I think FB pies are healthy! Delicious yes but healthy?????

    JJ :Cool:

    surely would depend on how cooked.

    Rice,brown rice takes ages to cook, a nutritionist recommended Basmati rice as it is not polished to the extent of American long grain and it still has a fair amount of fibre.

    Spuds are best by far :thumb:You can fry boil or roast the all sorts of different ways. Iam not aware of any probs reheating spuds unlike Rice-once cooked should not be reheated after a short period or causes food poisoning :Eeek:Spaghetti is just horrid full stop.:Eeek:
    Spuds rools OK:thumb:

    The thing is with all three, you are probably best having a variety of all three, giving you a better balance of meals, I would not think there is enough difference to eliminate any from your diet, but brown rice is healthier than white.
