Insect wise, what are the tastiest? And do you catch/raise your own or buy from online? Would appreciate info! I am curious to start eating them
I seem to be developing a shrimp allergy :( I'm hopeful that this can be fixed as I LOVE what eating whole shrimp has done for my hair and nails - plus they are delicious little buggers. Could this slight swelling of my tongue within minutes of... (more)
At the risk of sounding like a big baby, here goes... I love kale and I know it's really good for you, but I get irrationally stressed over cleaning it, since at least a few leaves are usually covered with aphids. I'm tired of spending so much... (more)
An apartment on the floor below us became infested and the building management did not inform people. I have 8 ugly hard red welts (itchiness has subsided but they look like dark red hard zits) and found and captured 2 bed bugs crawling near the... (more)
Before Paleo, and if bit by mosquitoes or any other biting insects, it would literally take weeks for the bites to go away. The histamines stayed close to the surface and would just slowly leach away leaving the wheals, now flattened, and then... (more)
I am going to Kenya next month- hiking thru all terrains- and I'm a bit (a lot) concerned with the bug situation. I've got an immune deficiency in which vaccines don't always work in my body, so I'm looking for the best protection from... (more)
Hey guys, I'm sitting here outside the public library, using the wi-fi with my iPad, and about two minutes ago something crawled under my foot, and I picked it up and popped it in my mouth. Guess what it was. Hint: it goes "chirp chirp... (more)
I know Sisson jokes in his book about "insects optional" in his primal style diet, but on my morning walk I noticed something. There was a substantial downpour last night and it has been raining hard for several hours. I noticed that many... (more)
A recent article on Science Daily (IIRC) discussed the idea of raising insects on an industrial scale, then grounding them up as a rich protein meal. The economics is promising due to a superlative conversion rate of feed to edible weight. But you... (more)
I think that a lot of hunter-gatherers probably ate bugs with a great deal of frequency. Has anyone ever had their own bug farm and fed them organic feed and used them as food? I'm thinking like a personal cricket farm. I hear they are really... (more)
If I post a comment, then delete it, the post is still listed at the top of All Questions list on the front page even though there is no new content. If I do a clipboard paste into the entry space on a new post (on a Mac on Chrome), it... (more)
This came to mind while I was cleaning the first greens from my CSA. A couple ants were hiding in the leaves, and I mumbled "go away I don't want protein on my lettuce!". It got me thinking, insects are essentially an inexhaustible food source.... (more)
Actually I have read that insects have 10 times more protein per ounce than beef. Native hunter gatherer societies still eat insects. Go ahead, leave those ants on your lettuce!
I just sunbathed on grass for the first time and it has been very itchy, I'm itching still. I thought earthing at the same time could be better so chose the grass but I may rethink... I also saw small bugs I could not identify, a list of... (more)
Earthing is likely woo nonsense. Yeah, it might be bugs, it might be pesticides on the gress, it might be weed killer you're reacting to.
It looks like those bugs I mentioned before are still there. (Quite often, I paste at the end of a post only for the entire post to disappear and I lose everything I've typed.) I've stumbled across 2 more: http://imgur.com/zNxSJrn ... (more)
I want to try eating some insects. The closest thing I've had was escargot in a can about 2yrs ago. I want to actually find some good insects that are typically made in say Bangkok. Cook them to my dietary needs. But I was wondering if anyone... (more)
CNN is calling this habit healthy. I wonder, though, is there any evidence that our ancestors ate a lot of bugs? We eat many things today that weren't eaten in Paleo times but that doesn't imply they're healthy for us. I imagine they wouldn't have... (more)
