    I could live a happy life with these seven items- and 50 block sun screen-but I wouldn't want to eat it.

    Wow. It's so hard to pick.

    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.
    Tomato05 responded:
    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).
    Sybell responded:
    Avocadoes!! Ramen, cranberry juice, canned black olives, whole wheat bread or rye bread.... hmmmm, mangos, pineapple, water!! eggs, my homemade potato salad!!

    think I'd be happy with those 10.
