Rice Diet (teenagers)

My teens are all participating in the 30 Hour Famine next weekend and I thought it would be great to step it up a bit.  If you do not know, the 30 Hour Famine is an event where teens go with out food for 30 hours and at the same time raise money through donations for World Vision to help alleviate world hunger.  I thought it might be interesting to have some typical meals that some of these people have when they do have food the days before the 30 Hour Famine.  Because of our schedule we are only going to have these meals Mon, Tuesday, and Thursday evening.  Friday at noon the 30 Hour Famine starts.  I thought we could just keep breakfast and lunch the same.  Since Asian, Latin America, and African peoples all eat rice, we are  going to do rice and vegetables with a tiny bit of meat.  I wonder if it is cheating to only do Jasmine rice.......  So far the kids are all gungho.  We'll see how they feel about it by Thursday!   Have any of you done this with your kids?  How did it go?  Do any of you have stories of your teens participating in the 30 Hour Famine?
