Still getting used to it: food from nature

Once upon a time we did not do anything else and we did not know any better: eat what nature has to offer us. By now we have gotten used to supermarkets and get everything we need from them. Many consumers no longer even know what the seasonal vegetables are now that we can get more and more vegetables all year round.

Yet there are also counter-movements. More and more people are using a piece of garden or balcony to grow vegetables, also in the city. But did you know that you can also pick or pick up food without your own garden?

Speedcourse Natural Food in the Netherlands by Michiel Bussink

With the eBook ‘Discover fast: eating from nature’ Michiel Bussink teaches you the principles of food from nature. Which flowers you can eat, which nuts you can pick up and which mushrooms can be trusted. Bussink briefly explains it and gives a nice overview of natural foods that you can find in the Netherlands.

Did you know that you can eat dandelion leaf?

I discovered that this is actually much more than I could think of myself. Yes, everyone knows blackberries. But did you know, for example, that you can eat the leaves of the dandelion? Or the daisy flowers? They seem to do fine in a salad. Bussink not only indicates which plants, berries, nuts and mushrooms you can eat, but he also gives recipes for them. These are usually easy to make, although for the other ingredients you still have to go to the supermarket.

Book review “Discover fast: food from nature”

The book is nicely written and gives a nice introduction to ‘eating out of nature’ which will make you look at everything around you in a different way in the coming walks. I haven’t been to nature yet after reading it, so I haven’t been able to put what I’ve learned into practice, to be honest, I still find that a bit exciting.

Luckily there are also pictures in the eBook so you can check if you have picked the right leaves. To be able to do that really well, I advise you to read this eBook on a tablet or phone and not on your black and white ereader.
