If you raised goats, rabbits, and chickens, you could probably eat meat, eggs, and milk, and then forage for dandilions or wild plants that you can
I think that someone found a can of spam that was left over from like world war II, and said it was still good.
Run away slaves used to hunt by lantern light, and were able to get small animals like rabbits, possum, raccoons, and such to freeze in the light of a
lantern. Then they could be hit over the head or have sack thrown over them.
If slaves could survive, like that, I guess it can still be possible to live like that.
Probably it would be better to forage at night while the nocturnal animals are awake.
It would be better to eat some tubers and bugs and try to find animals for meat, than to just sample any plant that is nearby. If you don't know what
you are eatting, plant wise, you can die. If it has white, umbrella shaped flowers, like queen anne's lace, and a red root, it might be hemlock.
Some plants will give you diarrhea, so you'd be better off not just trying any plants.
Basically I think go for nuts, roots, familiar berries, bugs, and meat.
Don't sample leaves, mushrooms, and plants unless you know what it is.
I think actually you can eat most any bug you find. If it has smell to it, it wouldn't be good, like a stink bug. But you'd know from the smell if
it is going to be any good or not.
I've never even tried a bug or a worm, but they have more protein than beef, I hear.
A man on television was eatting worms and said they really didn't taste like much if you swallowed them really fast. You can do that if you are
really hungry enough.
I was looking around in my yard one day just to see if I could find any worms. I didn't plan to eat any, just to see if I could find any, and they
are pretty hard to find. I'd have more luck going for squirrels or eating all the stray dogs in the neighborhood.
