If I don't worry about morale, would daily, average sized meals from the following be sufficient to stay alive for three years in space? I'm assuming only water is recovered from waste.
Assume enough electricity for cooking, zero gee pots and pans, ISS type kitchen equipment, spare parts for waste treatment hardware, and an routine waste dumps to space as needed.
- Dried beans
- Dried meat, fish, squid, etc. (if one partakes)
- Olive oil
- Vitamins (+omega 3, 6)
- Powdered/dried seasonings
edit: For this mission, dried bulk items were chosen because they can potentially tolerate larger excursions in temperature for long periods of time. There are no freezers or refrigerators, and the mission may go inside Earth's orbit as well as way beyond, so keeping the food "outside" in the cold was not an option on his budget flight.
