The Best Kept Secret of Native Australian Bush Foods
There's a common theory that is promoted in many alternative medicine books on nutrition "that we should eat foods native to our own area". This theory suggests, that not only are these foods better suited to the metabolism of the residents of the area but, are less prone to pests and bugs that may be present. If you are Australian however, there is even more reason to be consuming native Australian food products over the imported varieties.
The best kept secret about Australian bush foods is their nutritional value. When most people first think of Australian bush foods the first things that come to mind are witchety grubs or green ants. While these do form a valuable part of traditional Australian bush food, it is the native fruits and vegetables that are exceptionally nutritious. In fact, native Australian flora is beginning to emerge on the international market as the latest and greatest super foods and supplements.
