Here's a list of the top 10 foods this doc would like to have with her:

I actually read that as "Stranded on a dessert island" and I was thinking of ice cream and Boston Creme Pie. Anyway, I would probably bring, not knowing if/when I was going to get off the island, these foods:

1. Canned black beans and chick peas (lots of protein & fiber)
2. beef jerky (dense non-perishable protein)
3. Newman's Strawberry Cereal (it just tastes good)
4. Fresh water (who knows if there'll be any on the island)
5. oranges (Gotta fight scurvy, and oranges last a long time)
6. Banana Nut Odwalla bars (tasty, tasty!)
7. salsa (not quite a substitute for fresh veggies, but the tomatoes are tasty, and it lasts a long time)
8. rice (rice, beans, & salsa - a complete meal)
9. assorted herbs & spices (will keep things interesting)
10. apples (I'm sure there won't be any doctors on the island - how better to keep them away?)

Yay! Her list is vegan and I consume all those things regularly.

I'll post a top 10 of my own later.

That's so funny. When I glanced back at the thread title, I thought the very same thing. That could be a whole other thread all onto itself, food porn for sure.

I love your list though. Salsa was a great idea. I use it all the time. I like your reason for the apples too. Cute.

Soul Bliss, you're so right. I'm glad you like.

I thought it was pretty cool that majority of the items she listed I also consume regularly. I'll get to my list a bit later.

1. Potatoes - Sweet, white, Yukon...I don't care which
2. Tomatoes
3. Cheese - Any kind
4. onion
5. garlic
6. olive oil
7. a flock of chickens, (for eggs & meat)
8. cows, (for milk & beef)
9. pigs
10. sheep

I'm banking on this island being tropical and having an abundance of nuts and fruit as well as fresh water & good fishing!
