Hahaha, I could probably live on those, too.

I would like to add mashed potatoes, though. If I get so old that I can't eat much, I think I would live on mashed potatoes. With butter.

If I had to limit my foods to three sorts, eggs would be first on the list to include. They are so versatile.

But I really do like some variety in my meals. In summer I want fresh produce, all the time.

I like a variety of fruits, nuts, vegetables and greens, but my list of three would be:

King salmon, durian and broccoli.

Why would I?

No, I would not do a simple diet.

Of course people could TOLERATE a simple diet. It's actual starvation/malnutrition that does the damage.

No point in doing so. I love variety & so much fresh produce, why limit it & be boring. Of course it could be done, in an emergency situation, but till that day, I will eat lots of different things.

If there were no health consequences, I could probably live on nothing but pasta, pizza, cake, and ice cream...for a while. Such a diet would be rich in vegetables to complement the pasta and pizza, and fruit to go with the cake and ice cream. But I don't think it would last long. I'd also want chicken, salmon, potatoes, green beans, scrambled eggs, frittatas, and asparagus. And chili. And soppressata. And pesto.

Fish, eggs and tomato, absolutely. I do eggs, green veggies and sometimes salmon. What simple diet would I prefer to do? Cake, cookies, frosting.

I could maybe do steak, potatoes and broccoli.

But really I like to eat a pretty wide variety of foods. Part of what runs my grocery bill up.
