Crickets: Nutritious, Delicious and Good For The Planet

Crickets have more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and all nine amino acids.

They can be farmed indoors and require less water, less grain and less space than livestock. 

Bug-eating advocates say that by switching the kind of protein we eat — more bugs, less chicken, beef and pork — we can feed five to seven times more people with the same resources.
