Deserted Island Foods

Today a WebMD dietitian created a list of 10 “survivor foods,” also known as the shelf-stable foods you should bring with you if you ever anticipate that you’ll be stranded on a deserted island.

Her list included:

  • Canned beans
  • Nuts
  • Blueberries
  • Whole grain cereal
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Red wine
  • Tea
  • Oranges
  • Tomatoes

Which “survivor food” is your favorite?

Mine is definitely nuts (and nut butter… peanut butter… mmm).


My lunch today actually included two of the survivor food stand outs!

Broccoli and tomatoes (in the form of marinara sauce) were included in my pasta bowl, along with mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.

Survivor Pasta

Love that Parm!

It was delicious and fit for a meal on a private island. If only… šŸ˜‰
