Rice substitutes?

So, I'm planning on making bento boxes for my mom and I this year. I'm starting to plan and get ready now, but I ran into a problem, my mom asked if it's going to be rice every day. I told her no, but I'm not really sure what else I could use in the place of rice. I was thinking about quinoa, and noodles on occasion, but are there any other things I could use to replace rice every once in a while?
Thanks in advance :3

Bulghur wheat. Cous cous. Bread. Potatoes, even. Any sort of grain or starchy food, and you don't even need to have one - you could go with beans or lentils instead.

One of my favourite recipes I've tucked into bento is a chicken souvelaki with pita strips as the grain. Baguette slices also pack well due to being already small.
