When flying at high altitudes, eyesight deteriorates because of a decrease of oxygen in the tissues. Eating candy, which contains glucose, counteracts these effects.

lettuce salads topped


with aromatic, golden mustard flowers. On forest hikes, I luck out spotting dead logs display- ing rows of colorful turkey tail mushroom, a well-studied polypore that boosts immunity. Dark green, chlorophyll-rich mallow grows everywhere – even in my back yard, which I add to soups, or steep for tea. When low tides beckon, I head for Jenner for a fun day of care- fully collecting dark green, large-leaved stinging nettle --and pristine red and brown sea veggies from a sandy beach. I confess to nibbling plants


whose names I’ll never know, as my wild palate dictates. Oc- casionally, yes, I screw up and eat something questionable –but hey, the same thing hap- pens

bought produce. I believe each of us is born

I love that we can adapt to our habitats, becoming health- ier by partaking of the wide, local smorgassboard, Guided from within. And, I realize that most all of us learned not to trust that instinct! In any case, whatever you


choose to eat, be mindful. And if you like, join me in this Earth Day month in singing the praises of Mom Nature as you do. Here’s to Gaian edible, wild delights, Marcia
