Bugs Should be on the Menu

Robin Lynn Tedquist

Insects are a delicacy rather than food source.

Humans have been eating insects for years. Ancient Romans feasted on beetle grubs. The Greeks loved to eat grasshoppers. Mexicans eat ant eggs fried in butter and spices. In Uganda they eat termites in banana leaves.

Insects are nutricious

Many species are rich in fiber, iron, and protein. Cicadas have as much protein as beef. Insects are gluten free.
