Wild Fruit
« on: May 27, 2009, 10:39:58 pm »
I do best on low to very low carb. Having two cartons of VitoCoconut water yesterday (about 30gs of sugar) was enough to show me this. And for this reason I dont eat much in the way of modern/cultivated fruit. Wild/uncultivated fruit however is something I am no so quick to rule out......

Here is a nice website of some wild fruits in the uk. I am yet to research if they are native to uk/europe, but I suspect at least some are.

I plan to go for whatevers ripe and in season, and maybe dry (at a very low temp) some, then powder, to make a decent supplement to my animal fat/meat/organ etc diet.

Let you know how it goes.... :)

Hey, I recommend the book Plants for a Future. It has info about many wild fruits in Britain. My favorites in Sweden include red currants, sea buckthorn, sloes, bilberries, and lingonberries. Some of these grow in Britain too.

I wouldn't sweat the wild cultivated thing too much...don't see that a wild blackberry is that different from an organic blueberry.

I think the point is that berries have lower GL value than bigger cultivated fruit, and more bang for the buck nutrients/sugars.

But yeh, you can get loads of bramble fruits in season and they taste great!

Granted, given the overurbanisation of most western countries, it's kind of difficult to indulge solely on wild fruits. That said, the wild fruits I've eaten have a much better taste than organic fruits, indicating that they have a much better nutrient-profile by comparison. Same goes for wild animal meats. Not only does wild game taste better as they've not been heavily inbred over generations like domestic cattle etc., but wild game also feeds on a much healthier range of foods, which further enhances the nutrient-profile.
