Free food, yay!
I have been known to forage for wild food from time to time (and not just becouse I was skint - I like the taste of it).

That's from my yard actually.
Wild mangoes are usually really stringy and have huge seeds.
I have 2 kinds of mango (Hayden and Shibata), papaya, coconut, lychee, loong on, tangerine, lime, avocado, carambola, surinam cherry, 3 kinds of tomato, 5 peppers, guava and passion fruit.
I also have a small herb garden.
I've had nettles in a pesto, tasty!
Yeah, but that's cuz a certain someone in your household likes lots of capsicum (along with sand) in his warmer climes.

Best part of that is:
Aquafina labels to spell out source - tap water
PepsiCo Inc. will spell out that its Aquafina bottled water is made with tap water, a concession to the growing environmental and political opposition to the bottled water industry. According to Corporate Accountability International, a U.S. watchdog group, the world's No. 2 beverage company will include the words "Public Water Source" on Aquafina labels.
I should so change my name to that! Anyway, sand is a natural exfoliant, food isn't the only thing that can be foraged from your surroundings.
