How to Cook a Bug

Alright. I would do almost anything to help reduce my impact on the environment but I'm not sure if I'm ready to start eating bugs. This video shows a chef cooking bugs. I originally read the article "Eating Bugs" in Time Magazine. Go here to read the article online time.com.

Anyway, in addition to discussing various dishes a person can eat that include ingredients such as crickets and moth larva the article discusses how "green" eating bugs as a protein source is for the environment.

Here's the thing I'll use scratchy environmentally safe toilet paper and I'll live in unflattering florescent light but I'm not yet ready to eat bugs even if pound for pound they use significantly less resources to produce. I just can't even think about it without gagging a little. But if you think you want to try it I've added the chef's cookbook to our amazon store.

On a completely different note, I am trying to blog this post directly from youtube in order to share the video. I hope it works.

I think I could do some bugs but not scorpions and certainly not cockroaches. Of course I don't really care for shellfish either so maybe that's it- the big things with shells. I don't think I have a problem with the smaller critters- those you can just pop in and CRUNCH!
