I have "played around" with preparedness, and survival methods for a few years, and I'd like to think that I would be able to eat Pond Scum & BullFrogs. I'll say that in my experiments with "Survival Foods", it's been a big awareness challenge between how I am used to feeding myself, and others, and how you might "have" to eat. OBTW, tinfoil makes some "dandy" cooking vessels.
I would eat almost anything that is safe to eat. I Have eaten Seaweed and that is really gross. So grubs, worms and even mice couldn't be nearly as bad.
I grew up poor and we hunted a lot to make ends meet. Rabbit, squirrel, morning dove, you name it and we prolly ate it.
I have learned several trick throughout the years. One good source is Tom Brown's Wilderness Guides. Very good stuff in his books. Google him.
