Eating insects is sustainable, it has a lot of advantages over eating meat. The four main arguments are: an efficient conversion from feed to meat, less greenhouse gas emissions, less use of space and more animal-friendly. But there are other benefits. In addition to being rich in protein, grasshoppers also add value to your dish! An innovative healthy dish rich in protein! Do you dare?

Crickets are the most sustainable protein on Earth. There are significant economic and environmental reasons to be eating insects: Crickets require less land, water, feed and energy than many other popular protein sources including beef, chicken or pork

Cooked crickets can be eaten plain, sprinkled on salads, and used in soups and stews. Dry roasted crickets have a nutty flavor and can replace nuts when baking cookies and cakes. They can also be ground and mixed with flour as an added source of protein. Their uses when cooking is almost limitless. Crickets can also be turned into sweet or spicy treats. They can be dipped in chocolate, candied, covered with cinnamon & sugar, or salted. You can sprinkle barbeque, cheese, salt & vinegar, and other flavored seasonings onto them just like you would with popcorn or potato chips
