Tofu, if it’s the ‘real deal’ and not what we receive here in America, may be worth a test
What do you mean by “the real deal,” exactly? Tofu is obviously pretty indigenous here, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been westernized.
Also, I’ve actually been eating sashimi (no sauces, just the raw fish/squid/etc.) under the impression that it was acceptable.
How bad would pickled vegetables be? I know vinegar is a no-no… Or how about kimchi that’s guaranteed to contain apples, grape juice, and sugar?
The chicken breast is a good suggestion, although it would require a special order from a nice, sit-down restaurant. What I’m looking for is food that I can just grab and eat and will only set me back by a few days, vs. a few weeks. In other words, if I find myself stranded in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere and my only choice is a McDonald’s, should I go with the chicken nuggets and pull off the breading, or a burger and just eat the patty, lettuce, and onion? Or should I scout out some generic, non-organic yogurt with no sugar added? Cross my fingers and pray I can find a fruit stand that sells green apples?
I know people have cheated pretty badly before (a night out here, a vacation there, caving into temptation there) and haven’t been set back too bad… I’m just trying to collect info on how to minimize the damage in case this type of situation were to arise.
