Wild Fruit

Wild food is Sunfood - food grown in abundance under the Sun, not under artificial conditions of any type. It is food as the Earth has given it to us in its original state.

Store-bought fruitarianism is not workable in the long-term. My health partner, R.C. Dini, continuously inspires people to seek out perfectly ripe fruit. Perfectly ripe fruit picked fresh, "from the three right to me," is an unmatched experience.

Wild fruit is high in minerals, and often lower in sugar than commercial fruit. It is less stimulating and thus is closer to the center point of The Sunfood Triangle.

Wild fruits are the sustenance of the immortals. Fruit has tremendous spiritual power. The more natural (nonhybridized) the fruit is, the greater its spiritual value.

Common fruits which are close to the wild state and/or are extremely viable when grown from seed include: avocados, cherimoyas, crab apples, guavas, heavily-seeded citrus fruits, jackfruits, mangos, most melons, most peppers or chiles, papayas, peaches, tomatoes, tomatilloes, olives, white sapotes, and others.

A good quality citrus fruit should contain 14-15 seeds, even if the fruit is small in size. The more seeds in citrus, the better. The less seeds in citrus, the more hybridized is the strain. Keep citrus fruits in Sunlight or on the windowsill so they remain at their maximum nutritive value and quality. The riper and more sun-exposed the citrus fruit, the sweeter and less acid are its contents.

Common vegetables which are close to the wild state and/or are extremely viable when grown from seed include: dandelion, garlic, kale, lamb's quarters, malva, mint, mustard, onions, watercress, wintercress, and others.

One of my favorite wild foods is malva (mallow). Malva seems to love growing on the outskirts of civilization - in canyons, back alleys, and back yards. Malva is one of those phenomenal greens which tastes incredible eaten alone. In the winter I typically start off the morning with fruit, then eat malva only for lunch, and have a salad with some raw plant fats for dinner.

Common nuts and seeds which are close to the wild state and/or are extremely viable when grown from seed include: coconut, macadamia, quinoa, and sunflower.

Every locale you find yourself in possesses wild foods with which to eat and live. Get out and explore your local canyons, fields, forests, hills, mountains, etc. My organization, Nature's First Law, distributes a book entitled Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide by Elias & Dykeman. It is certainly the best I have seen. Take it with you on your hikes and identify your local edible greenery.

In his writings, the herbalist Earl Mindell has confirmed my experience. He has described that less than 1% of all plants are poisonous to eat.

The power of wild foods cannot be underestimated. Eating wild plant foods reconnects you with Nature in a most profound way. One time I was out hiking in a canyon near my home. On the way, I encountered several children ranging in age from seven to 10. we started talking and soon agreed that I would show them all the edible, interesting, and poisonous plants growing in the area. We had an extraordinary time together. After several hours, all the children had gone home except one. The two of us were hiking up a hill through brush on our way to a field of young dandelion when we almost walked into a coyote. The coyote looked at us and bolted away. The young child's eyes were wide open. Although earlier he had told me he had seen coyotes, I knew after that incident he had not - at least not like this. These moments are priceless and this moment all came in the fun of foraging for wild food.

The goal is to eat as naturally as possible. The more wild and natural your food, the more wild and natural you will become! Wild plant foods make you strong and robust and put in "in tune" with your local natural environment.

If you cannot get wild food, or it is impractical, please eat organic. You deserve it. You are worth it! You and your family are worth more than anything on Earth; give your family the best fuel possible. The organic farmers also deserve your support for not spraying pesticides

(poisons) on the Earth. If you have to pay twice as much or more for organic food, do it! It is an investment in yourself (which always comes back multiplied). Organic food has more vitality, minerals, and value that commercial food. In my experience it is totally worth paying even three to four times as much money for organic food.

Enzymes which are usually proteins help to begin, aid in and accelerate every chemical reaction in the human body. Enzymes are the bodys main workforce, much like a construction company building a skyscraper.
