     I have asked this same question from another forum I am a member in, just curious with your answer guys. My choice of food that I can actually eat for the rest of my life is bananas.

     With me  it is a toss between bananas (spotty ones)  and N Y Cheesecake,/img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gif

    If I had to choose one food I would probably have to choose something as nutritiously dense as possible given that I wouldn't be able to eat anything else.  In that case I would choose lentil soup made with plenty of vegetables.

    But if I were to choose the food I would never get tired of eating it would have to be mashed potatoes with jus.

    With only one food to eat for the rest of your life it wouldn't matter much as your life will be short and ugliy as you die from a vitamin deficiency.

    I think for me.. it would be hard to get tired of corned beef. Of course.. there are hundreds of foods I love. I just happen to pick corned beef at this very moment. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rollsmile.gif

    As I cram pizza in my mouth while typing this....I agree with Gunnar.  If you meant one single food item as opposed to a dish.... then definitely avocados.... I think the odds of surviving would be more likely if I chose that as opposed to my daily cravings of pastas and cheese.

    It's got to be either smooth Greek black olives. Gorgeous stuff I can and do pick and eat at like candy, that or Port Salut cheese.. but then i'd pile of the pounds for sure.

    that or even better;-  Guinness.. is that allowed? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drinkbeer.gif  I've known lots of people to refer to Guinness as a meal in a glass.

    Unfortunately, I am facing exactly this.  Long story, but it appears I will need to eat only liquid very soon.  I've been thinking ice-cream may be the way to go.

    Much as I like olives, and much as it would grieve me... I'd give 'em up for the martini.

    Chicken soup with matzo balls: complete nutrition in one pot. Protein, vegetation (leeks, parsley, onion, carrots, parsnips if you're so inclined, and carbs (matzo). If you want more carbs, throw in cooked kasha and noodles.

    BDL, with your pick you also have a pick of any deserted island in the Caribbean............I hope some one sneaks you some Wasabi, and Soy sauce.
