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?
Some of these prompts encourage great thought on my part and I actually began laughing when I thought of the five food I have consumed on a daily basis for the years I was in the US military.
Although the Military was not my captor as I volunteered for duty, the daily food items served in the mess halls were the same, especially breakfast.
For three years, every morning after physical training I was subjected to the following five foods, no matter where I was assigned. They are, Oat Meal, Grits, Fried eggs / Egg omelette, Toast and meat of some sort.
The five food items, I chose to consume daily on a private Caribbean Island would be Salmon, Strawberries, Spinach, Dark wheat bread, and coconut milk.
It is amazing how my consumption of food has change to live a healthier lifestyle.
