Hungry? Just take a walk outside. Nature is a grocery store! It's actually better because it's free and foraging requires no energy inputs (except for the minimal energy expending walking around and preparing the food). I have identified around 30 edible plants within a 20 minute walk from my house and posted pictures, parts edible, season and habitat.
