Balanced diet? What balance?

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

I thought this was going to be easy, but it’s not…Where is the island? Is it a tropical island? If so, I’d choose different products than on an island near the arctic circle. I wanted to go with a healthy balanced diet, but simply couldn’t give up on some of my favourites.

I’ll just go with the tropical island theme here.


  1. Dr Pepper, you can never have enough of that.
  2. a whole pig please, there’s enough meat on it for a couple of days.
  3. Watermelon, from the seeds I can grow new ones.
  4. Chocolate. Dark chocolate with hazelnuts.
  5. Lemons. I assume they’ll grow on the island, but in case they’re not, I’ll have some to make lemonade.
