Desert Island

Day 21:  What three endless food supplies would you take if you were going to be stranded on an island?
(Imagine your nutritional needs have been met, these are a bonus!) 

SO MANY QUESTIONS! Are my nutritional needs met by a multivitamin or some sort of Soylent-esque meal replacement? Or is the island laden with a variety of nutrient-rich produce? If so, what’s there already? Are there peanuts to make peanut butter? Is there fruit? How can I choose bonus foods if I don’t know what the baseline/regular foods are?!

…clearly I’m overthinking this, but the parameters are unclear and I dislike ambiguity. I’m going to assume I’m eating some kind of boring nutrient-rich food and that most of the flavor I’m getting comes from my bonus foods. In that case, I would bring…

  • Unsweetened dried mangos. These are better than candy to me, particularly the ones from Trader Joe’s. I can go through a bag in a day. I don’t think I’d ever get tired of them!
  • Dark chocolate, because duh. A square a day keeps the doctor away… or something like that. Let’s go with 75% cacao so I can share with any fellow strandees who don’t love super-dark choc.
  • Barbecue kettle-cooked potato chips. These are a total guilty pleasure for me, but I make no apologies or excuses. If I were stranded on a desert island, I’d deserve a salty, crunchy snack to balance my uber-healthy mangos!

Unrelated, but — happy 60th birthday to my dad! Love you!

  1. ha ha, YES this prompt was very thought provoking! Hmmm. Potato chips, I hadn’t thought of that. It’s really nice that we aren’t actually stranded on islands, and we can actually just go eat this stuff if we really want to. Phew.
