If you had to spend a month on a deserted island with 5 specific foods, what would they be, be SPECIFIC ! Pizza is essentially several foods- cheese, bread, etc
Mine are-
Spring mix
Broccoli
Tofu
Peanut butter
Purple Okinawa Sweet potatoes

    Wait.. if pizza is several foods then spring mix would be several foods as well. And a month.. would need to be food that stays edible for so long and could be eaten without too much preparation. I'd say
    Fresh water
    Tinned fish in tomato or with veggies that are easy to open
    knaeckebroed
    Apples
    crisps, paprika please

    Coconuts - calorie dense and you can eat the meat and drink the milk
    Avocados - calorie dense and I assume I'll be having to work my *kitten* off
    Rice - good energy food
    Jerky - good protein that won't go bad
    Water

    LOL! Totally not. I made this a double challenge: Pick food that I love, and food that will last. There had to be bread. Bread is love!

    1. Sweet corn/corn on the cob
    2. Potatoes - preferably Vivaldi (but I never met a potato I didn’t like)
    3. Patak’s Lime Pickle
    4. Mature cheddar
    5. Salted butter

    I could probably last more than a month... in fact, don’t come and fetch me until September.

    Ahhh nice ! I only have tomatoes sun dried once in a blue moon but everything else we agree on. Which flavor Julian Bakery bar do you like?

    Sweet Cream. They are magical when you nuke them for a few seconds, flatten them with your hands then microwave them some more. They puff up like a big soft cookie. Yum!!
