Five Foods for Private-Island Exile
You’re being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?
So I don’t know variables such as how long I’m going to be in exile, but I’m going to pretend it’s a private island like the one in Breaking Dawn and imagine it has a house, with running water and electricity and the like. Yes, I analyse things a little bit like that.
Okay, imaginary captors. My five food requests:
-Avocado and smoked salmon sushi. This is my one indulgence, because I will eat it for dinner on the first night. Rice is carbs, fish is protein, avocado is good fats. Altogether, it’s yum.
-A box of croissants. I don’t care how many, but the more the better. I’ve had croissants for breakfast, brunch or lunch and so I think I could work with whatever fruit trees on the island to come up with a decent feed. Besides, I don’t get sick of croissants, and they have carbs, which mean it’d be a while before I thought about the next meal.
-A really large family-sized pizza. I’ve seen some in the frozen aisle of the supermarket, and the size of the box makes me think they would be roughly twice the size of the dinner plate. In which case, if it’s just me, I wouldn’t eat all that in one sitting. I’d get at least three dinners from it, especially if I supplemented it with fruits or whatever from the trees.
-A crate of potatoes. I love potatoes, and you can use them in a number of ways: jacket potato, mashed, fries/wedges. Plus, they’re filling and apparently loaded with all kinds of good nutrients.
-A large box of cereal. True, I haven’t asked for any milk, but I can eat it dry with a glass of water. Just make sure it’s Nutrigrain. It’ll make the croissants last longer and since I’m the only one eating the cereal, it’ll last over a week. Especially if I alternate between croissants and cereal.
