The world of plants
As humans, we are made to be plant eaters. Just think about it; what did we eat when we were hunter-gatherers? Mainly leaves, fruits and an occasional piece of meat. We did everything barefoot, with no sharp teeth or claws and no sprinting ability. Maybe we caught a bunny or a fish, and sometimes a mammoth, but most of our food came from the plant world.
Although it is important for our health to eat different types of plants, our diet has become increasingly limited. Aside from what we eat on a daily basis, such as carrots, beans, cabbage, or maybe the occasional passion fruit, there are plenty of things we haven't experienced yet. That while there are about 300,000 species of plants growing in the world. For example, in an old vegetable garden high in the Andes in Peru, Rob found a Tagetes variety that tastes like orange peel, in North Korea leaves with the taste of garlic but that don't leave any stinky breath, and in China he got to know a sweet pea variety that can already grow at a very low temperature in spring.
