According to "A Fighting Chance" you could survive off plants such as grains, beans, and legumes after nuclear fallout.
Also canned foods would be alright as they are protected from radiation for the most part.
As for animals that you might consider eating, they will be affected by a combination of gamma radiation inside and out, as well as the intake of irradiated food or lack of food to eat altogether. Their organs would be so saturated in radiation that you would develop radiation poisoning from consuming them.
