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.

Are you green enough to try this trend?

You can go ahead and order cricket flour here, or even buy pre-made cookies.

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