Do you enjoy chocolate? You can make it more nutritious by bugging itwith crickets, for example. Or how about ant-fortified tacos? This site introduces Westerners to the idea that many commonly encountered insects are edible. Indeed, most are lower in fatand higher in proteinthan beef, lamb, pork, or chicken. The site's author argues that "insects are the food of the future." And of course the site gives recipes.
