If You HAD to Choose 5 INGREDIENTS to Eat for the Rest of Your Life?

I always see people asking these "if you could only choose one food to eat for the rest of your life..." questions here on G@G, and I always struggle with them because who can truly only eat ONE thing?

So I wanted to do a variation of this question: if you could only have 5 ingredients to work with for the rest of your life meal wise (this includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner) which ingredients would you choose?

For me I'd have to go:

Spinach
Bread
Cheese
Chicken (assuming you can use it whole)
And oranges

A little bit of everything in there yo. I could make a lot with that.

Updates:
2mo Y'all can't choose composed dishes. Lol. You can only pick INGREDIENTS to MAKE dishes. XD

      Well steak is cow so technically it is. Lol. I guess you could argue that a whole cow is an ingredient in of itself since some cultures utilize the whole "nose to tail" concept.

      So yes a cow is an ingredient. Lol.

  • If it can't be microwaved and if it takes more than 30 seconds to take it out of the package and fix it first I don't eat it. Been living that way since 17 so I can't think of individual ingredients tasty enough to eat for life since I already eat microwavable junk for life, they are all in a box ready to eat already. Aka TV dinners, Hot Pockets, pizza rolls, fish sticks, etc.

  • Well technically bread isn't an ingredient... It's yeast, flour, water and a touch of butter/oil.

    So I suppose raw ingredients: cows, potato, chicken, tomato and water? Or broccoli if water is available?

    I could have beef, milk, cheese, cream, potatoes, chicken, eggs, tomato, soup, etc.
