Eat more crickets!

As many of you know, I’m a notoriously picky eater.  That said, I actually love the idea of humans eating more insect protein.  Why?  This chart (from KnowMore)

Why you should be eating more crickets

I still do eat beef, but the information here is one of the reasons I have been trying to replace it with chicken when I eat meat.  And as we see here, insects are the most efficient way to produce animal protein.  When it comes to weird food hangups, though, I just hate to eat meat where it reminds me of the animal it came from.  In large part, this means no bones or things like chicken legs.  You’ll never get me to stick a cricket in my mouth, but powdered cricket protein in my food?  Sure.
