Some foods are harder on the planet than others. But here are 50 foods, some of which you may never have heard of, that are healthy, tasty and support wildlife. So all you foodies out there, experiment with these and then tell us where to get them and what to do with them.
Sometimes you can find the food for free along the road. I was walking with my Thai sister in law and suddenly she leapt into the weeds. “I love these! They’re so expensive in Asia,” she said. Using Google to double check that our variety was also edible, we gathered bags full of what ranchers call pig weed and try to eliminate because eaten raw, it sickens livestock. It’s amaranth. The tender leaves sautéed with a bit of garlic are very tasty, like a mild spinach.
