    I don't know about healthy ...

    fish
    olive oil
    chocolate
    cheese
    oh lettuce/lentils/nuts - favorite is pecans

    bananas frequently make an appearance here, like I said I don't know about healthiest ... as I eat other fruits sometimes (but I prefer veggies), but I go days where I eat a banana every day.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I couldn't possibly narrow it down to five, but staples include:

    eggs
    beef
    anything in the allium family: onions, scallions, garlic, shallots...
    bathtub-sized mixed salads
    butter, cheese

    coffee (I came across my great-grandmother's grocery list in the Oregon Archives, and coffee was high on her list, too.)

    You said foods...to me, coffee is a beverage...if I had to mention coffee, it would be #1 on my list of must haves!

    Allium genus! I love to

    1) eat some of them cold (in salads)
    2) eat some of cooked, everything is better with garlic and cooked onion
    3) grow them as ornamentals in my garden, they are striking
    4) make floral designs using them, especially dried heads

    They are the best universal plant there is!

    Yeah, that's why coffee was an afterthought.

    I can't imagine life without alliums. When I met my beloved, he wasn't sure he liked onions, but I made it a condition of engagement.
