Next, dont eat something on side of road due to toxins from gas,brake dust.... dog feces....
Purslane , if recall what read as a child (checked all the wild edible plant books out of the library ), it could be eaten raw in a salad or cooked, someone had a recipe with bacon for the purslane. It almost is a succulent like plant, on the bland side.
Purslane heard in last few years also has omega 3 fatty acids, which posibly some people need more of.
Not everyone can access the omega 3's from purslane, (forget if a genetic thing or what ). Also wonder if in the leaves or seeds. The seeds are like poppy seeds and the plant has quite a few (as can attest to many new little plants in my front yard.
