Be honest with yourself - how many fruits and vegetables have you REALLY tried over the course of your lifetime? Would you be open to trying something new, even if it was a foreign taste and smell? What if it was absolutely packed to the brim with nutrients and considered a "superfood?" Check out these super cool and "unconventional" foods that you could potentially grow for yourself in a backyard food forest:
🌱 Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia)
💚 Full of vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, iron, potassium + zinc
The fruit extract from a bitter gourd has been shown to improve insulin treatment in diabetics by increasing the uptake of glucose by cells. It's also full of vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, potassium & zinc.
🌱 Jute Mallow
💚 High in iron + vitamin A
Consuming only 137 grams of jute mallow can provide you with your daily requirement of iron. It's leaves can also provide 2x as much folate as cabbage.
🌱 Sour Spider Plant (Cleome gynandra)
💚 High in iron + protein
This sour tasting plant provides you with your daily required intake of iron and half of your daily requirement of protein in only a 100 gram serving.
🌱 Leafy African Nightshade (Solanum scabrum)
