Monday Morning Question

Monday Morning Question

If you were dropped off on an island for one year, and you couldn't get off, and you get to pick three (and only three) food items to eat all year, what would you choose?  Keep in mind that the items would be dropped in for you, so they would be fresh. 

My answer:  fish, rice, and oranges.  Fish for protein and I like how it tastes.  Rice to fill me up.  And oranges so I don't get scurvy.  Now John doesn't like my answer b/c he says I am not playing this right, that I should pick fun foods, not worry if I get scurvy, that I am misinterpreting the question.  He wants pizza, meatball subs, and chocolate milk shakes!  That's NO vegetables or fruits, folks!  

What do you want?

    Kristina, I'm a pragmatic person, much like yourself... Before I even finished reading your question, my thoughts were going down the same path:  a strong protein, a fullfilling starch, and choosing a fruit or a veggie that would round out the most vitamins!  So, I'm with you... although I don't exactly know what scurvy is, I think it means bad teeth.  I just got braces (2) months ago, so a year without seeing my dentist (ortho) is going to be painful if it starts now!  LOL...  Shana

  5. Well...going along with John's idea...not being practical and all...I'd have to choose:
    1)  Ice Cream
    2)  chocolate
    3)  Wine
    (and for extra...how about a fruit and cheese platter??)
    Oh, I forgot Pizza.

    LOL!

  6. Yes like John says the rules must be changed.  lol   Of couse I will have all the vitamins and medication I need along my computer, television, dog, credit cards, etc.

    1)  wafer sliced chicken  (including horseradish sauce and mustard)
    2) sliced pepperoni  
    3)  yogurt  ( all different varietys)

    I hope John is comfortable in the hospital getting treatment for the fever.    This is a long ordeal for him and you and with the great results he has already had from the transplant, it will give him inspiration to endure this occurence.  

    Love,   Mark

    It would depend,  if I had to stick to my diet I'd have chicken, broccoli, and salad dropped.  If this was fantasy island and I could have anything and not worry about gaining weight, I would have roast beef, mashed potatoes, and fresh baked breads.  I haven't had anything white (bread, rice, potatoes, sugar, noodles, etc.) for 6 months.

  24. I have thought about this before...if you could pick ANY 3 foods, you would be able to have some way to store them if they were perishable.  I think I'd want beef (Steak and hamburger); reeses peanut butter cups; & caffeine free diet coke. LOL Hopefully Rich will be with me and bring the vegetables; chickens (for meat & eggs) and BREAD.  LOLOL Have a great week.  Love to you and John.
