It’s no secret that western eating habits are unsustainable – producing a little over 2 lbs of beef results in the increase of over 59 lbs of carbon dioxide.
The protein of the future will likely come from insects, and there are a few companies that are already capitalizing on this. It’s not just the most likely option, but it’s the most ecologically friendly. It takes a lot less resources to farm insects such as crickets, and they release much less methane than cows.
About 2 billion people in the world already regularly eat insects, but it’s something not widely accepted by our western palettes.

I gave it a try, now tell me what you think.
