We discovered a great guide that provides clear photos for identifying edible wild plants, with tips on what to avoid and a lot of useful information about each plant featured! It’s good to know that there are plenty of possible sources of food around in a survival situation. Of course, you don’t have to wait for an emergency to start eating wild plants – I’m sure that many gardeners would gain some extra satisfaction from being able to eat some of their “weeds“!
Here’s an extra one to add to the list: One of the most important wild food plants is the very nutritious stinging nettle (Urtica Dioica). It is rich in vitamin C and all of the B vitamins – it also provides a good dose of minerals, especially silica to help the tissues of the body to heal.
Young nettle shoots can be eaten as a vegetable after boiling (which removes the stings!) – springtime is the best time to harvest them and it’s great way to give the body a healthy boost after winter. It’s well known that nettle stings on the skin can be relieved by the juice of the common dock plant but did you know that juice from nettle plants works too?
Our ancestors relied on berries, nuts, fungi and wild plants to provide most of their food and medicines and some indigenous people still do! Adding a few edible wild plants to your diet will make meals more interesting and could contribute to a healthier balance of nutrition. It’s of course essential to know what not to eat! – This will help: http://www.livescience.com/11356-top-10-poisonous-plants.html
If you want to make the most of foraging, it’s a good idea to pick up a good pocket field guide and carry it with you when out hiking. This is a good incentive to walk more often and you will learn a lot about the natural world as you go along before coming home to feast on what you’ve gathered!

Note: There is an important rule to follow here: If you are not absolutely 100 percent certain of a plant’s identity, don’t eat it! Having said that, there are many more edible plants out there – if you’re looking for a more comprehensive guide or some further info, please try one of the following:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
