Entomophagy, the practice of eating insects, is prevalent in many cultures around the world. To be honest, some societies actually make bugs look pretty damn tasty. Sure, it’s not as common in Western culture, but folks have been doing it for tens of thousands of years. There might be something delicious behind this tradition.
An infographic created by Western Exterminator is basically the essential guide to eating insects. The guide highlights the green benefits of eating insects (their vital role in waste biodegradation), the health benefits of eating insects (rich in vitamins and protein), and even throws in a few different recipes (pizza, cookies, and smoothies) to try with this unconventional form of protein.
