Following on from yesterday’s post (do read it first if you haven’t already), I have test ran a simulated diet a typical survivor could forage together if the incident occurred albeit a couple of months out of season.
3 medium sized tomatoes
2 medium sized carrots
Some meat free sausages.
I ate in that order too, after the second tomato I already felt quite full. Though each one doesn’t even contain 20 calories, they are packed with anti oxidants. The carrots contain a couple of good nutrients of course, and the radishes, despite tasting like a mouthful of table pepper. The Quorn sausages were very high in protein but also almost equally high in fat. About 12g of both per 100g. Just 4 sausages contained 124 calories. These would probably be made by grinding up mushrooms and biscuits in a post Zombie Apocalypse world.
All these were washed down with a coffee made with cold water. All in all I feel like I’ve eaten well and the whole lot came to about 450-500 calories. I shall endeavour to eat in this fashion where ever possible, certainly lunchtimes. Let’s see if I feel any better for it!
