There actually is a correct answer, I just want to see the justification people have if they give the wrong answer. I'll post the correct answer and the reason for it in a few days.
The correct answer corn and potatoes. Both became staple diets of the poor in France and Ireland. Both can provide almost all necessary nutrients for someone to survive, potatoes can do so completely and corn can do it mostly. The benefit of potatoes is made more of a big deal because they excel in difficult soil and conditions, which made them superior to old world crops that tried to prosper in areas that were not optimal for crop growth.
