It differs a lot how many vegetables I eat in a day but quite a lot since I am vegan and vegetables covers a big part of my daily calorie intake. It doesn’t seem realistic to cover that amount with foraged foods. With the way the city is constructed it would be irresponsible to take such an amount from the few green spaces. At the same time, a lot of the plants are herbs are leafy greens from which I would have to eat quite a lot to fulfill my daily needs.
But even though foraging is only a small addition to my diet, I think those few leaves in a tea or salad are a great reminder and appreciation of our connection to the natural world, which also provided the rest of foods on my plate although harvested in far away places which sometimes can seem abstract and disconnected.
