Bugs Nuggets!

From here.
Over at the New York Times is a cool article about how some Dutch people are trying to get Europeans to eat bugs like crickets, mealworms, grasshoppers.

What a good idea! Raising crickets is better for the environment AND more humane than raising cattle or pigs.

Of course, people already DO eat bugs . . . but not in Europe or North America. What’s our problem? Are we wussies? Do we have weird hang-ups about what “food” is?
Yes and yes!

One solution might be a food like Bugs Nuggets. It’s a combination of “80 percent ground chicken and 20 percent ground mealworms.” 

By combining a little bit of bug with a food that we are all familiar with, maybe we can get the bugs in the back door. (And then later, they’ll be leaving the same way!)
