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.
