But Do They Taste Like Chicken?

A new study finds insects, like crickets, could help promote good gut bacteria.

When we hear about someone eating insects and bugs we think that’s one of those instances when it’s not a good thing. But reverse that thinking, at least according to study from the University of Wisconsin. Their research says adding something like cricket meal might he helpful, not hurtful. They tried adding it to muffins and checked those results which weren’t too overwhelming. But interesting for sure. There are snacks made with crickets already like these energy bars from Chapul but intentionally adding bugs to our food does take some getting used to. Oh say like the story we had some time ago about cockroach milk? Sorry foodies, just not happening in this kitchen. But I know I shouldn’t knock something until I try it so I’ll be on the lookout this weekend. I’m going to check out the Orlando Farmer’s Market on Sunday and see what’s new and fresh.

If you have a market I should visit, or just a great new restaurant that needs a little love from Ann Kelly’s Kitchen just let me know @ ann.kelly@coxinc.com. Insect snacks optional.

If we were to wipe out insects alone on this planet, the rest of life and humanity with it would mostly disappear from the land. Within a few months. E. O. Wilson
