I've spent some time out in the wild and let me tell you, with a backpack full of supermarket delights, all my favorites like Pepperidge Farm cookies and cheezits and gummy bears, if I had known what to do and had had enough time, I would for sure have dumped my backpack and eaten the grouse I saw and the thimble berries, huckleberries, wild greens and wild mushrooms. I really would have. I think there is something more than availability that drives us to eat junk. Something about our way of living enables it. Advertising? Stress? Boredom? Pollution? Being on autopilot and not ever actually feeling truly alive? The latter one is why I go on big adventures out in the wild when I can.
