Staple Food Quotes

Rice is the best, the most nutritive and unquestionably the most widespread staple in the world.”



“We've been sold on the idea that travel is no longer a luxury. It's a staple, like soymilk.”

James Morris - Wilson Quarterly (Winter 2007)


“Butter is the great staple article for breakfast & tea among all classes. The idea of restraining children from a liberal use of good fresh butter is exploded, & they almost live upon bread & butter in this city.”

John Pintard (1759-1844)
writing from New York to his daughter in New Orleans.


Bread is a staple article of diet in theory, rather than in practice. There are few who are truly fond of bread in its simplest, most pure, and most healthful state....Is there one person in a thousand who would truly enjoy a meal of simple bread of two days old?”

‘The Young House-keeper’
by William Andrus Alcott (1846)
