Why do Brazilians eat beans and rice everyday ? I suspect because they are TRADITIONAL FOODS of that region and culture . in NUTRITIONAL aspects the combination of beans and rice forms a Total PROTEIN the PORTUGUESE arrived in Brazil in the 1500's and brought with them their foods and taste they also had a immigration of ITALIANS a million by 1880 also GERMANS Arabs and even Japanese before European s arrived the native people are known for planting the MANIOC a root vegetable similar to the POTATO where one gets TAPIOCA they also consume a lot of FISH since they are a large COASTAL country the diet varies by region

Rice has 1/2 a protean. Beans have 1/2 a protean. They match together to form a complete protean. Or meat substitute. 1/2 the world would starve if not for beans & rice. & so many good ways to fix them.

For the same reason Americans drink Coke over their Frosted Corn Flakes every morning.
Silly generalisations aside, beans and rice are nutritious, delicious, low-fat, cheap, and can be prepared many ways. Beans and rice are staples around the world, except in places where people feel the need to eat a slab of meat with lots of salt on it, rare. (I can't IMAGINE a country that might do that.)

Same reason some Americans eat French Fries every day. It's there and they like it.
