Why cook when you have that lovely woodsorrel growing like a carpet in NH/ME? More kick than lemon, more body than bean sprouts. Hell, if your SoBo save 'em up to barter with the unfortunate NoBo's in georgia to give a bit of flavor to their already dying reserves of what city folk call "food"....

You'd be mighty hungry if you tried to live on nothing but what you can scrounge along the trail. Yes, in season there are a lot of good things to eat - but they supplement, not replace the food in your food bag. (Though I've pretty much lived on blueberries at times. But even so, they were snacks, not dinner.)

Wait, so eating that bark and backpack-lint for 4 weeks was not healthy? :-?
