Weve Lost Nearly All of Our Wild Foods — What Happened? And What Are We Missing? — Societys Child — Sott.net

Fish are the last wild food that most of us will eat. A few days from now, a single bluefin tuna will make international headlines when it sells for an ungodly amount of money — perhaps more than $100,000 — at Tokyos Tsukiji market. And while the high price of the first bluefin of the year will be extraordinary, the rarity, and thus the prestige and high pricetag of bluefin in general, provides a clue to humans dietary history. Once upon a time, wild foods were a regular and beloved part of the American diet. Today, the American epicure might dine on foraged mushrooms and ramps, but for many of us, fish are the last wild food we eat. What happened? And what are we missing?

    We are missing basics of survival.. … people are used to going to grocery stores and having everything convenient in one place.I am far from a forager but I grew up in an era that was catered too by the processed food companies.What is missing is “stay at home moms “that actually cook from scratch and spent most of their time teaching their children the basics of cooking and cleaning and being responsible for oneself…. We are missing the simplest of things PATIENCE and taking time .People say they so not have enough time but its not that ,WE DO NOT TAKE THE TIME .

      …. Gardens. Farms….. Local produce, and educational programs on sustainability. This us what we need to fix our food issues. I truly believe that the more people grow food, the less dependent on Monsanto we will be overall.
