Using vegetal resources as a source of nutrients and energy seems quite feasible to me if the vegetal resources are a large enough fraction of the total. We do that already, after all. They’re just not a very intimate part of us.

I read a story recently about the end of the world. It described a very large plant which had people (not much like us) as mobile fruit. They could detach themselves to wander after sleeping for long periods of time. Eventually the available resources became too limited and the wanderers were recalled to be absorbed to nourish the plant. The story described the experiences of one such “fruit”. Sorry, I don’t recall the author. It was the final chapter of a much longer novel describing the future of mankind.
