Discovering a sustainable food source is a real delight, so joining up with Grub foods who promote the insect world as an alternative protein source to the wide-reaching consequences of the cattle industry certainly feels morally right. Fortunately, as much as I squirm at the sight of insects, their foods taste wonderful. Cricket powder is now on my protein menu, and I’m happy to say that I eat grubs! Here are some quick facts about eating crickets and grubs:
- crickets are 69% protein
- they contain more calcium than milk, and more iron than spinach
- have all 9 essential amino acids and are deemed a superfood
- 80% of the world’s nations enjoy insects as a food source daily
- farming insects requires only 1/12th of the feed that a cow does to create a kilo of protein, hence super sustainable!
