Let’s talk about the ? mAgNiFiCeNt power of cUrIoSiTy ???

It might take some time before insects become standard American fare. And that’s ok! ?

Another way to address the food sustainability crisis is to feed insects to farm animals and fish, instead. After all, animals eat insects in the wild already.??‍♀️?+ ?=?

The world is protein deficient, and insects are protein rich. ?

Bug & Wine pairings, bug dinners, etc… these are all just messaging tools to get you, dear reader, to think differently about the food and feed system. I’m trying to get the convo going about how what we eat impacts our bodies and the planet. To replace fear ?or judgement? (or hopelessness ? - like… if I felt overwhelmed by something as complex as addressing global food challenges ?, I’d want to avoid addressing it?… unless I knew there were solutions on the horizon ?!) … 

… CuRiOsItY! ? the power to ask “why?”, “how?”, “what if?” Instead of avoiding conversations about big global challenges ?... we can get curious and start talking about different lens we might see solutions through ✨??

I haven’t posted a recipe in approximately forever months. How do I cook with bugs (beginner level) is still one of the most frequent questions I get and I’m sorry I’ve failed you on the prompt responses front there! ???

I CAN refer you to the websites of most insect brands - if you’re supporting a company by buying product directly from their site (which you should!), make sure you check out the “recipe” tab on their site - tons of dope recipes featuring their bugs in salads, sauces, smoothies, baked goods, and more! ???

In the meantime, I like to take basic recipes and replace the crunchy element (croutons or nuts) or the protein element (in tacos, for example) with bugs! ?

Swipe left ⏪ ⏪ to see the ingredient & recipe for a staple: Mealworm Lentil Salad ??

1️⃣ Rinse and drain lentils. Halve/quarter cherry tomatoes. Slice chives. 

2️⃣ Add all ingredients to a small bowl and toss to combine. 

3️⃣ Add in bugs and vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. 

4️⃣ Stir and serve immediately or refrigerate to develop the flavors more.

Happy Earth Day! The future is in our hands. In this photo, I’m holding bugs (specifically, locusts). ?♻️?infer from that what you will ?

Sometimes i avoid doing (or even thinking about) tasks that seem impossible, intimidating, etc. When we talk about global food system challenges, sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the complexity of it all. How intricately connected everything is. Annnnd then I want to avoid it. Or pretend like I can’t have an impact. Or say that it’s too big to deal with... ??‍♀️

But then I remember that’s not true. I can make a difference. It’s also not necessary to understand it all, explain it all, or solve it all. It’s about deciding that the climate is something I want to prioritize, and all I have to do is keep that in my forward-view and take a small step each day. ❤️ 

I don’t know if anyone else goes through this cycle of self-talk to get through moments that feel intimidating, but I wanted to share mine in case it was helpful ?? 

When dealing with big challenges, some patience, acceptance, and lots of communication is needed. Taking things back to first-principals can’t hurt either.

Happy Earth Day! The future is in our hands. In this photo, I’m Read More

#tbt one of my first marketing collabs with @paparoach @jacobyshaddix @jerryhorton @tonyproach @Seanevens @firstwefeast and @complex to promote their then-new album, Crooked Teeth. ???

“In 2000, Papa Roach sold three million copies of their debut album Infest and appeared on the cover of Spin. In 2017, they’ve appeared on camera for First We Feast to eat actual insects, in a video where the predictability of the scenario is nonetheless very amusing.”

This was one of my first bigger “collabs,” and I couldn’t have had a better group to explore the power of storytelling, bugs, and humor with. They were so good-natured about exploring something totally new to them - they respected the message and leveraged the provocative nature of bugs. It might take some time before insects become standard American fare. And that’s ok! ?

Bug & Wine pairings, bug dinners, etc… these are all just messaging tools to get you, dear reader, to think differently about the food and feed system. ? I’m trying to get the convo going about how what we eat impacts our bodies and the planet. The insect industry is much broader than the insects-for-food that the average consumer might come across… ?+ ?=?

“Did you know insects are healthy for you, and the thinking man predicts they’ll become a crucial food source for our increasingly resource-deprived planet? I did not, but now I do, after watching the helpful explainer from Bugible’s Aly Moore. The boys behind “Last Resort” now know it, too, as FWF host Sean Evans prods them to eat crickets, june bugs, scorpions, and more. (They’re dead and cooked, don’t worry.)”

As some know, spiders like Tarantulas are not insects. They’re arachnids. ??

They taste somewhat like an earthy crab ?, which is not too surprising given that insects and arachnids are from the same taxonomic phylum: ARTHROPODA. 

It is important to note that while tarantula legs and bodies have a subtle fishiness to them, they have very distinct flavors. While the thorax is on my not-so-appealing list, tasting a bit “buggy” and ‘off-scallopy’ – sometimes with a strange soft texture, tarantula legs are pretty high on my love-this-bug list ?. The legs are mushroom-like. I find the legs to be similar to plain ‘ol really, really good beef jerky, with subtle miso soup notes. ?

An important reminder: as tarantulas can be quite hairy, it’s recommended that you take a lighter to their bodies and legs to torch the hairs off before serving.??? Would you try this? Have you? Lemme know!

Featured: cricket croutons in cranberry, walnut, & fresh micro green salad ? so easy to add bugs to most dishes ?

Crickets ? and mealworms ? are the two most frequently  discussed edible bugs in western cultures. This is not because they are the best bugs, but rather because they are the bugs we know the most about raising. ? We still have a lot of data to collect and tools to invent to help us raise bugs in the most efficient and optimal way. ? 

Crickets are raised in cricket farms. ?Bug farms are generally much easier on the environment and take up less space than traditional livestock farms. ?

Crickets are perfect for what we call urban farming. ? This is a type of farming that can be done in places that have limited open land - like cities. Bugs are perfect for places without much space or water to raise crops and cows. For this reason, they also are being researched as potential space travel food. ?
