Brown rice is probably a good place to start--I always use brown rice and
whole wheat bread, but have never gotten used to whole wheat pasta (though
I haven't tried very hard).

Brown rice (like white rice) comes with different grains--short grain,
medium grain, long grain.  If you like rice to stick together, you
should choose short-grain rice.  If you want fluffy rice that doesn't
stick, use long-grain.  Basmati, jasmine, and texmati are all types of
long grain rice that are a little fancier.

Good luck!
