Can you survive solely on prunes (and water) for a year?
I'm reminded of a certain month back around the college years that I ate nothing but top ramen and water for an entire month. Did I survive? Yes. Was I happy? No. The best way I could describe it would be to say that my body started shutting down and my brain got fuzzy. I pretty much hurt and ached and was angry all the time. I really don't recommend it.
As to prunes...sure, they probably have more vitamins than top ramen, but as others poitned out, there are other things your bosy needs that they lack. If I were to venture a wild guess, I'd guess you could probably live for several months on nothing but prunes and water...but after the first few weeks you might prefer the prunes kill you rather than keep you alive.
Why not try it for a few weeks and see how your body responds to it?

Just about all insects are edible. You just want to avoid the ones that eat dung, carrion, or have stinging organs.
