A “Bug Mac”

A "Bug Mac"

For anyone that has taken any of my courses, it comes as no surprise when I now write that I always refrain from teaching about edible plants and, instead, proclaim the merits of insects as a primary food source.  When I do, most often, the look on a student’s face is confusion … Did I mishearIs he kidding?

Well, for those who are skeptical, or think that I must be crazy (perhaps both), please consider checking out the audio link to a recent National Public Radio story:

Time for a “Bug Mac”?

There you will learn about an extremely popular restaurant in the Netherlands whose “bug buffets” have been selling out.

And if you want to learn more about potential food sources in an emergency situation, consider registering for one of True North’s wilderness survival courses.
