If you only had 10 food options...

MIMIMOM | Apr 13, 2017 10:43 AM

A friend of mine asked me this question years ago and we hashed it out for weeks. It's recently come back up so I thought I'd put it to CH for some interesting ideas. If you could only have 10 food items to eat and cook with for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Water and all other beverages would be freely available. And we should assume that for the most part, all of your nutritional needs were met with those 10 items. Mine are as follows: (today anyway!)

1 - onions
2 - garlic
3 - eggs (and no you can't hatch them for chicken!)
4 - beef
5 - sugar
6 - salt
7 - vanilla beans
8 - corn
9 - spinach
10 - cream (could make butter & cheese)

I'm really curious to see what everyone will come up with!
