Big news, bad news. So for some reason, I’ve stopped being able to tolerate beef. It’s all I was eating and now I can’t stomach it, I guess the people who said I would sensitize to these foods were right. FORTUNATELY, I’ve found a solution. Insects. They’re basically meat and pretty crunchy. So far so good. I’ve only tried crickets but I’ve added links below to other insects. At least there’s more variety here, right? I highly doubt any insect would cause an IgG response, so they’re probably safe.
Crickets – I’ve actually had to buy these from pet stores… For some reason, they don’t make crickets without adding a whole bunch of additives to them. The only ones I could find online were BBQ flavored, and many had added milk and sugar. How is that healthier?
The ones from pet stores are organic and have nothing added so they’re safe to consume. I used to feed them to my bearded dragons so that’s pretty funny.
- The UN states that 20 percent of the world eats insects. Perhaps those are the parts of the world where obesity isn’t’ a problem? A coincidence? I think not.
- A number of insects have a higher protein amount (per 100g) than beef!
- It’s good for the environment (fuck bugs, amirite?). They take less water to raise than normal sources of protein (beef) and contribute much less to greenhouse gases.

Will keep everyone posted.
April fools. Got my mom too! 🙂 Hope nobody got too concerned. I am not eating insects, meat is still a-okay and will be for a very long time.
Try rotating the beef with the insects and maybe trying to get ahold of some uncommon meats that you haven’t tried before and rotate them as well so you don’t eat the same thing too often.

It might be more to do with the fact the countries are developing
Yeah, you got me.
I was like oh no she’s gone crazy and I had just been talking her up to my family. Ha ha
This from my grand daughter who, at an earlier time, was often called “Bug” You have a wicked sense of humour and I believe that you caught many with yourApril Fools scam. Happy Easter and love to you all
I’ve found that eating bugs tended to have adverse side effects such as sprouting antennae, extension of the thorax and additional leg growth. What I have learned is that the eating of fictional animals has not held any long term side effects at all. The three little piggies, the Big Bad Wolf. Monstro the whale from Pinocchio (which kept me fed for almost 8 weeks), Wiley E.Coyote, Bambi, Bugs Bunny and Donald Duck all have been consumed with no noticeable long term issues, some short term issues have been seeing stars after hitting my head, falling for tunnels painted on cliff walls, huffing and puffing and blowing houses down. but these effects only lasted about 2 weeks. Just saying
Totally knew that was an April Fools joke immediately.
I just heard your dad mention this blog to Joe Rogan and I’m interested in diet (and about to go on one) so I thought I’d give it a look.
