Yummy insects ready for eating
There are several insects that tend to be the most popular, namely crickets, silk worms, bamboo worms and beetles. Most of the bugs are stir-fried with salt and chilies until they are crispy. The smaller bugs are simply eaten like popcorn – you just pop them into your mouth, crunch a bit, and then swallow. Most of the flavor is from the seasoning, but all of the nutrients are from the insects.
More Protein Than Beef
Despite the fact that most westerners are uncomfortable with the idea of eating insects, they are actually very high in protein. In fact, about 65% of a cricket’s body weight contains protein. That’s about twice as much as beef, and far more sustainable. And crickets produce considerably less greenhouse gases.
