Calling All Survival Nuts


Apologizes if someone has already asked this kind of question, but...

Setting: New England, Fall, Woods, no capacity to make fire:

What could you forage/catch fairly easily that could be eaten raw without it giving you really bad diarrhea or an upset stomach? Originally, I wanted my character to be eating a chipmunk completely raw, but that doesn't look like its going to happen. Skim reading, I found raw meat is not really a good idea due to the high risk of bacteria or tapeworms.  Plant-wise, I heard acorns were edible, but then another source suggested it could make you sick due to some kind of acid and boiling would be a better choice (which my character can't). As for insects...I keep coming back to earthworms.

Also, if nothing is safe, are there any other low risk options...?
