Five A Day

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Five a Day.”

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

Ricketts PointOK, so I’ve been bad again huh? Ruthless world domination stuff?They keep telling me I have to cut back! Anyway let’s assume it’s a tropical island and has fresh water and coconut & banana trees (You know like they always seem to get on Survivor?). This being the case and I can only have 5 food items;

  1. Rice
  2. Green Beans
  3. Chicken
  4. Lemons
  5. Carrots

Rice can be used for pretty much anything; sweet or savory, good source of fiber and protein, as is the chicken. Green Beans and Carrots are versatile & nutritious & if I’m sneaky I can perhaps plant a few left overs and start my own garden, on the way to world domination again. Lemon is good for flavoring and for drinking, mixed with fresh water. And to mix things up there are bananas (on their own or with rice) and coconut…….meat and milk, both great. So I think I’d be good with that. Maybe on days when I am really good they can get me chocolate??
