Not only are insects healthy for the environment, but they are packed with nutrients for us as well. If we compare 100g of crickets to 100g of beef, crickets have 2-3 times more protein; more calcium, iron, vitamin A, fiber, potassium; an ideal omega 3 to 6 ratio; and all 9 essential amino acids. Insects are gluten-free, paleo, and arguably vegan. The only thing holding us back is our cultural biases and stigmas.
