Diary Entry 8: Food on the International Space Station

Quote:This kind of delicate cake [macaroons] has to be eaten in one piece so as not to crumble. This is the case for all foods. Unthinkable to let any pieces escape that would float and scatter and risk damaging the Station’s many electronic components.

That is why bread is prohibited on the International Space Station. We eat tortillas instead. These Mexican pancakes made with corn flour are very solid and allow us to create a variety of dishes: sandwiches, burgers, wraps… you name it! My preparations are quite nice, though I am not at risk of receiving a Michelin star any time soon. In the station, we prefer everything that is compact. The basis of our diet consists of cereal bars, biscuits and small snacks to nibble on during our daily activities.

I never thought about it but of course, they really have to watch what they eat.

They could simply create a feeding bag type of contraption that could go over one's head and vacuum out the crumbs to a holding tank...let them eat cake!

settler's ship to Mars..?
