The main staple of Chinese

Most American and European have their meals with bread or dinner rolls. For Chinese, rice or noodles are the main staple depending on which part of China you are from. For Chinese who are from the north, they prefer noodles and dumplings. For the rest of China, rice always accompanies the main meal.

There is a Chinese saying "no rice, no energy; no money, no courage!" It shows how important rice is to their culture.
