Vegan MoFo ~ Bonus Items!

Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is..."What 3 endless food supplies would you take if you were going to be stranded on an island?  Imagine your nutritional needs have been met - these are a bonus'.

Well, this one really has me stumped because nearly everything I initially came up with were fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, grains, etc.  The only thing I could come up with would be luxury items or supplies of packaged items, I guess.  But before I get to those I thought I would talk about a few things that could probably be on the fringe.  I mean...Nutritional Yeast!  But...since all my nutritional needs have been met I would assume that would also include Nutritional Yeast, right?  B Vitamins and all!

And another one would be Grapeseed Oil.  Sure I could take a variety of over 30 grapes and cold press the seeds on the island but it would be pretty difficult.  The other oils would be more accessible and easier to put into oil form such as coconut oil, avocado oil, etc.  Since I showed a picture of Wildtree Grapeseed Oil I figured that would be a good segue into my actual 3 items that I would choose.  Instead of doing 3 individual items I have chosen 3 endless supplies of items from the following companies.

I know that is kind of cheating - but oh well!  The Vegan items from Wildtree would be on that list.  And I would probably say Earth Balance would have to be in there, too!  They are coming up with some pretty good products.  The 3rd company that I would have endless supplies of their products would be Daiya.  Where I live they have only scratched the surface of their offerings so I think by living on an island with an endless supply would certainly be a step up!


Sure I know I could MAKE my own vegan cheeses on the island from the ingredients already there but sometimes I just like the convenience of these items, ya know?

Oh...I almost forgot to mention BALSAMIC VINEGAR!  Sure I like just about any type of vinegar but Balsamic is in a class of it's own...and HEY, guess what?  Wildtree has various Balsamic Vinegar products, LUCKY ME!



And on MY island...

Daiya is the distributor of Chao!  So...I'm clustering in Chao Vegan Cheeses with Daiya Vegan Products!

It's my dream world and Island, right, so I can do anything I want...haha!

I know - I know...I cheated!  This was a HARD prompt but it ended up being a FUN one, too!

  3. Agreed on the nutritional yeast and great picks. I think it would be organic tempeh and hemp seeds for me too.

    1. Thanks! I was thinking about hemp seeds but you could grow those on the island...and probably a way to go tempeh, too! ;p

  6. Wow! what brilliant way to make the system work for you - not individual items but COMPANIES! Love it! I think you made out the best out of all of us! I think we will all be converging on your island, so make sure you have enough hammocks :0

    Totally not cheating as there were no rules. I think you made a genius move with this. I didn't realise Chao was distributed by Daiya. Oh and I really love that Daiya cream cheese =D

    1. Chao ISN'T really distributed by Daiya (I'm sure they are direct competitors actually) but on 'my island' I made up that they were! LOL

  11. What a fun task and I totally missed out on that one, ugh! Unfortunately we don't have the daiya products here in the stores, the only way to get them is by ordering them online. Which I did like 2 times, but they are rather expensive. I've never had the chance to try the chao slices though, but I've heard so many good things about them, that I really, really need to get my hands on those somehow :D I hope they'll introduce them here in Austria too soon :)
