I voted 15-20 but a more accurate answer would be “an infinity”. I guess only the sea food with the various fish, shellfish and seaweeds counts already ways over 20. Then there are various wild animal meats, wild boar, deer, venison, chamois, ibex, moufflon, hare, badger, etc. Wild fruits and plants such as cempedak, arbutus, rosehip, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, mulberries, other berries which I sometimes test without even knowing what it is…  and various mushrooms, purslane, chestnuts, etc.

Of course, it doesn’t mean that I often eat all of those, and plenty are still there for me to discover.

Then there are some more or less cultivated fruits that are almost wild, such as loquats, jackfruits and plantains.
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

I too voted 15-20, but also reckon that an infinity is more accurate when raw seafood is included.

I also have eaten raw wild seaweed that I got from my raw mussels. Also, raw wild samphire. I am not near the wild so access to raw wild plants is meager for me.

As far as land animals I've only eaten deer. A friend just got a moose and said he'd share. I live in the country and we have lots of groundhogs, coyote, snakes and birds (and bugs but I don't have the guts for those... yet. Someday) . Also, the occassional cougar or bear but they aren't common. Probably the only thing I wouldn't attempt to eat is the coyote because they can scavenge garbage and I can't guarantee their health. Does anyone have a reason why I shouldn't eat any of the others?
Birds could easily be my main food source if I added in extra fat. Anybody have robins, sparrow, blackbird, quail, kingbird, dove, or pheasant raw yet? My place is loaded with all sorts of birds.


For seafood, I live by a river and want to catch some rainbow trout while avoiding the genetically modified triploid.

That depends on what the dog was eating.

Many different kinds of wild fish and shellfish.  Wild blackberries, grapes, and blueberries in season.  Wild mangoes and coconut in Costa Rica when I am there.
