If you absolutely had to, would you be able to pick 3 foods to live on? Imagine yourself on a stranded island. Life is everywhere but you are the only human being. You can hunt, catch or gather anything you want.
However, the 4th food you eat becomes poisonous and you die. You can choose any 3 foods you want on that island. They all exist.
You can hunt cow, deer, goat, lamb, caribou, pig, boar, chicken, turkey, bear, toads (that does not include me!) and more. You can catch any fish or seafood item you want. There’s crab, lobster, salmon, tuna, catfish, squid, octopus, scallops and more. Or why not gather some wild berries (pick only one!), bananas, avocados, coconuts, macadamias, spinach, kale, chard, radishes, basil, oregano and more.
It’s your choice. Assume you can hunt, catch or gather any food with success. If you decide to eat a fourth food then you will die. It’s a challenge but its do-able. You can live on cow alone and thrive for a while. You would just have to eat the liver, brains, kidneys and more…
Primal Toad’s 3 Survival Foods
Like I said above, I could live on the cow alone. But, why not throw in one of my two favorite plant foods? I get the whole coconut. The awesome coconut water/juice for electrolytes and the hearty meat for its saturated fat and cleansing properties. I love being by water (I’m living in Hawaii for 5 weeks right now!!) and would most definitely see what’s going on in the ocean. Knowing I would have success, I would catch some scallops.
I never said you could not have as many tools as you want! No oven or stove is allowed. But you know how to make a fire. You know how to make butter if you want. I’d make some lovely butter and coconut oil to throw on the scallops and meat once in a while.
I just had a thought… why not try to live on these 3 foods for a week and see what happens?!
Now it’s your turn. Tell the world what 3 survival foods you would choose. Simply leave a comment below. Have fun with this! Spread this fun challenge around to your friends on Facebook and Twitter. They will thank you for it!
