My belief in the healing and health-promoting effects of our own gut flora has led me to the conclusion that wild food matters. Wild food, and the beneficial bacteria harbored therein, may be the missing component in many seemingly good diets.

You do not have to become a hunter (or even a gatherer) to reap the benefits of wild food. Let?s munch a few wild leaves together and see how easy it is to get the benefits of wild food in your diet.
