There is only one reason we don’t eat bugs.

They’re Gross – the first word many people say when eating insects is suggested. However, with crickets having as much protein as beef yet using less than 1% of the water to produce, it becomes a conversation. The world is changing and today’s problems demand creative solutions. Eating insects solves a number of problems.

Insects are high in protein, vitamins and minerals. They use significantly less resources to produce. They can be produced in high volume anywhere in the world with low-tech equipment. Why are insects not the new Super-Food? Because, they’re gross.

People, in general, do not like eating insects. This is not true in all parts of the world. But, it is especially true in the United States. While our southern neighbor, Mexico, enjoys a good Chapuline (spicy grasshopper), we’d never think about it.

That’s what this site is about. Changing your mind and getting more and more people eating insects.

Frequently Asked Questions


It’s amazing that something as ancient and primitive as eating bugs is not part of our common knowledge.

Entomophagy, or eating insects, is common in many parts of the world but it’s just shy of taboo in our part of the world. We just don’t talk about having bugs for dinner. They’re considered yucky.

Considering the benefits of eating bugs both personally and environmentally, this bias needs to change. We will all benefit.

The change begins with conversation and, of course, questions and answers.

'Don't bugs taste yucky?
You would think so but many people love them. There are all sorts of insects each with it’s own flavor. As with many foods, the journey is a personal one.

Keep in mind that the toughest bug to eat is the first one.

Do you use bugs harvested from the wild?
No. One of the benefits of insects is their high per square foot yields. Farming insects can even be done in urban settings.

Although many people collect and eat bugs from the wild, pesticides alone are a good reason to eat farmed insects only. We also don’t want to decimate an animal food staple by harvesting from the wild.

Are insects healthy?
They sure are. Crickets have about the same amount of protein as beef or chicken and they pack more vitamins and minerals. They’re low in fat and high in fiber. Insects are a valuable and viable food source.
