Rice shortage

I don't eat a whole bunch of rice, and I always kind of thought there was an unlimited supply. So, this news about the pending worldwide rice shortage caught me a bit off guard today. It's a good reminder of all the things we take for granted during this Earth Week.

One more reason I'm a (moderate) vegetarian. Eating less meat is so much better for the environment and our health. So much grain is used to feed livestock, it would be put to much better use to feed people! If I weren't so lazy I'd look up some stats, but I am, so just trust me: eat less meat, people!

I think the rational solution is to substitute coconut Jelly Belly jelly beans for any recipe that calls for white rice. And toasted marshmallow flavor for brown rice. Pretty much the same thing.
And, I guess, get sashimi instead of sushi. That should pretty much do it.

I love meat, Amanda. Giving it up would be so hard! Maybe artificially NY Strip flavored couscous would work.

Now the sashimi over sushi, I can handle that sacrifice. :)
