WILD RICE, COOKED -- USDA nutritional database. At the end of the rice breakout, you'll see it's rather close to an ideal food!
MAPLE SUGAR -- You can switch to nutrient content for smaller quantities than 100 grams. You can also compare maple sugar's higher mineral content with the nutritionally nearly-empty plain white sugar, by inputting just sugar.
DEER; cooked, roasted--Traditionally, most deer meat was boiled, and we still mainly make stews and thick soups from deer meat today, so less nutritional value is lost than by roasting.
SALMON, many kinds--Salmon, fresh, dried, some pounded to mush with nuts, berries and herbs added, was the staple food of Northwest Coast tribes until recent times. Nutrient analysis shows that this fish supplies many needed minerals and vitamins. Salmon, which goes upriver to its birth-home to spawn, is environmentally threatened today. Salmon fishery has been the focus of political and legal battles between Native people and government favoring large commercial fishery. Many NWC tribes today have established commercial fishery, hatchery, and processing enterprises, but traditional people doing family river fishing are often still harassed and arrested.

Nutritional Data for BEANS; BLACK, MATURE SEEDS, COOKED, BOILED, WO/SALT Black bean nutrient analysis might be as close as we can get to traditional, black beans still used in southwestern/Mexican cooking (and a diffeernt variety for oriental)
