Individual mealworm frittatas; yes, mealworms are edible.

The average American unintentionally eats over 400 insects a year, but we SHOULD be doing better than that. Eating more insects might just save the world!

  1. Environmentally sustainable. They use less land, less water and produce fewer emissions than traditional livestock.
  2. Nutritious. Bugs provide excellent protein as well as heart healthy Omega-3 fats, and important vitamins and minerals.
  3. Easy to Farm. Bugs have a short life cycle and can be raised in urban environments, freeing up the country-side for oxygen-giving forestry and wild life.
  4. Ethical. They can be easily and humanely euthanized for ethical harvesting.
  5. Delicious & Versatile. They are tasty, easy to prepare and highly versatile.
