When I go outside, I have the habit of eating the colored part of clover leaf flowers. It has a nice perfume and taste.
White tender root parts of grass is also cool to eat. I never fell sick from both, but you have to be patient to have a noticeable plate!

Could You Stomach These Great Depression Meals?
With all the talk about food storage and growing our own food, I did a little digging around to find out what some people ate during America’s Great Depression of the 1930?s. ...
# Milk toast
# Chipped beef on toast
# Cucumber and mustard sandwiches
# Mayonnaise sandwiches
# Ketchup sandwiches
Article lists, some posted above, meals ate during the great Depression.
Tried any of these(the more uncommon for today foods)? Likes, dislikes?

But I actually already eat toast a lot by itself.
Also I eat cucumbers too, by itself.
Anyone who puts mustard on a cucumber is venturing into dark territory imho.
