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!

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.
And here’s to never being stranded! :D
