On the Menu: BUGS

Allow me to introduce you to Daniella Martin. She is the host of Girl Meets Bug, the insect cooking show. Her website explains, “She is passionate about teaching people that insects are fabulous food –in addition to being the most environmentally-efficient animal protein source on the planet!” She makes some valid arguments on her site noting that “insects require up to 20 times less food than cattle, meaning that per pound of food they are given, they produce several times the amount of protein.” The bottom line is if you want to help save the world then get on the insect diet. Although she brings some valid arguments to the table I don’t foresee insect diets catching on in the near future. Considering many people have fear of such insects is just the beginning, I have been around bugs my entire life and I wouldn’t for one second dream of letting this yummy “cuisine” anywhere near my mouth. Just check out the clip below, looking at it just makes me wonder how many organisms may be growing out of her. None the less we bid her good luck in the insect eating quest, but please be sure to save some for Fischer.

So what do you think, would you be willing to try the Waxworm Tacos?
