If you had to eat one food every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'm not saying you could eat only this food, but you have to have at least one serving of whatever it is every single day until you die.

What's interesting about this question is that for some people, the answer varies depending on when you ask them. They may be in the middle of a strawberry phase or a quinoa kick, and so they'll say whatever food they're most "into" at the moment. Ask them a week later and it's likely to be something completely different.

There's also the undeniable reality that for most of us, no matter how much you love a certain food, you're going to get tired of it if you eat it every day (and I include chocolate on that list, ladies). This isn't just me, right? Too much of a good thing is no longer a good thing, in my experience.

Regardless, recognizing all of that, if I have to provide a single answer to the question, I'm going with apples. Which I realize is kind of a boring response. But then again, if one food is going to be on the menu for the absolute rest of my time on earth, then it needs to be something solid and dependable rather than flashy and quick-to-turn-repulsive, doesn't it?

And if I have to be specific about what kind of apple, as documented on this blog previously, I'm going with the tried-and-true Gala apple. Galas are sweet, crunchy and among the most reliable members of the apple family. 95% of the time, any Gala you pick up at the grocery store or the farmer's market is going to deliver in terms of taste and texture.

In fact, in the case of Gala apples, I'm really already living out this proposition. In the last 365 days  and this is no exaggeration  I would say there have been at most 10 days in which I didn't consume at least one Gala apple. I'm not kidding. I even took a bunch with me when I traveled to Germany and the UK back in February.

So Gala apples it is for me. How about you? As always, comments on Facebook or below this post are welcome and appreciated.
