Lots of bugs, worms, termites, ants, slugs....

"Lots" would seem to be the keyword there. Wouldn't it take a lot of sweat of our brow to forage for enough nourishment?

Or could worm-farming and ant-ranching be done without modifying them?

I'm not so sure.

Don't most studies show foraging is actually less labor intensive than farming?

Now that you mention it, I remember reading somewhere that the bushmen of the Kalihari only spend about four hours a day "making a living".

I once ate some grasshoppers. Does this count?

Re: More for the list.
Well, technically unless you can find dandelions from never mown, virgin fields, we have, indeed modified them to be a certain length through selection for shortness (to go under the mower blade).

The French also have been cultivating domestic dandelion greens for a long time. Farms here in the US do it too.

What about more 'edible' things?
Any type of cattle make the list? A deer or two? :o

Re: What about more 'edible' things?
Cattle are absolutely designed by man. You might be able to call something like a Wildebeest as God intended.

And deer are among the most managed of herds out there.

The rhizome and side roots are edible. As well the pollen can be used as a flour suppliment or thickener. Early in the growing season the 'head' can be boiled and eaten in a manner like corn.

Re: A few more
With cattails (one of my favorite terrestrial wild foods) is the center stem of the plant, grab the top and pull out a 1-2 cm diameter while stalk. Excellent raw vegetable, and I often use in stir-fry and similar dishes.

To add to the list: The vast majority of marine food resources (even those farmed) are little if any modified from the wild type (exception that come to mind would be Atlantic salmon). So to add (from my family's diet):

abalone
crabs (multiple species)
sea cucumber
rock scallops
limpets
clams (multiple species)
multitudes of fishes

Re: A few more
the idea of eating a sea cucumber makes me want to forcibly dispell my intestines out of my mouth.

I wanted to list seafoods a while back but I remember the certain laws in the old testament about seafoods. Obviously, god doesn't want me to eat seafood.
