    This could be tough for a real "foodie" like myself...

    I'd have to have Olives, pasta, tofu, turkey, fresh whole-grain bread, peanut butter, fruit, corn, turkey bacon, brown rice

    Hopefully, that would keep me going until rescued...

    Hmm I love fruit, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries. I get hungry for green beans steamed with green or yellow peppers. And of course, I would need chocolate.

    I have so many favourites, it's hard to narrow down the list.

    My (long) shortlist: Tomatoes (of course!), baby spinach, eggs, green tea, blueberries, red pepper, broccoli, bean sprouts, miso soup, soy sauce, sardines canned in water, apples, almonds, plain low-fat yoghurt, coriander and hard candy (oh yes, and gummi bears).
