Bugging Out For Dinner

In the world we live in today, we have taken advantage and for granted some natural resources that are running out. Water is the source of life on the planet Earth. We have wasted water to a point that many places are stricken by drought and crops are no longer successfully growing. This is going to lead to new forms of feeding ourselves.

If we do not change the way we treat mother nature, in the future you may be bugging out for dinner. That’s right the new crave of the future to get your balance of proteins, and amino acids are going to be from our creepy crawly insects friends. Insects such as stink bugs and crickets are washed, roasted and turned into edible snacks packed in protein and minerals.

Our typical form of food such as chicken, beef, and pork will no longer to be able to be sustained due to the lack of water. According to factsaboutbeef.com, it took approximately 441 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef in 2007. Their website also advise that”As ranchers work to reduce their use of resources, it’s also important to note that the 441 gallons of water used actually includes the water animals drink, water used to irrigate pasture land that the cattle graze, water used to grow crops that the cattle are fed and the water used in processing the beef.

1 pound of beef is barely enough to feed one family for dinner one night. 441 gallons may not seem like a lot, but it quickly adds up to millions of gallons of water each day worldwide to produce beef alone. So enjoy that steak dinners and cheeseburgers while you can because in the future it’s going to be Cricket legs and stink bugs.
