The Arthasastra of Kautilya is an ancient (c. 4th century BC) treatise in Sanskrit on state-craft, which deals with almost all branches of governance including plant-wealth and utilization of plants. Kautilya states that in an emergency, a man can work without food for a period varying from one fortnight to a month if he consumes certain herbal preparations. He gives 4 recipes for such emergency foods.
