Lambsquarters is a leafy green vegetable which grows throughout much of North America but it is generally regarded as a weed. It is one of the most nutritious plant foods available yet gardeners routinely pull it up from their gardens as a "pest" and throw it in the compost.
Lambsquarters is not typically sold in grocery stores, but it can sometimes be found at local farmers markets.
