    You are what you eat, and if you had to depend solely on what could be obained/grown locally, what would you be eating?
    Animal
    Vegetable

    The wife and I have a big ass garden. Tomatoes, squash (both winter and summer), peppers (hot and sweet), carrots, lettuce, cabbage, eggplant, watermelon, cantalope, and cucumbers.
    I hunt and fish. There is still some elk, venison, and ducks in the freezer. I usually bring home enough fish for a meal or two since I think freezing fish ruins the flavor.

    Locally available,
    Animal -- Beef, pork, chicken, various fish, goat, rabbit and venison (Raccoon and Opossum if you want).
    Vegetable -- Too many to list, see link, Vegetables Listings Home
    (You forgot) Fruit -- Too many to list, see link, Fruit Listings Home
    Mineral -- I think I can get all the minerals I need from the above sources.

    I believe, for the purposes of categorizing, "fruit" is covered under "Vegetable"

    No need to make it complicated....

    Venison, rabbit, fish, berries, cattail tubers, if you're lucky enough to live close to water.

    Juniper berries (blech). Probably have to make them into mind-altering substance, though.

    Those are the native food stuffs...

    If we were to lose all contact with the outside world today, we'd have a few gardens with produce, but not many or enough to go around. Maybe enough to provide seed for another year.

    And wheat. Lots of wheat. Cows, horses, pigs, sheep...the usual barnyard fare. Pheasants, chukars, dove, quail. I forgot them. Though I don't think pheasant is indigenous.
