‘Join the insect food revolution’ to fight ‘global warming’: ‘I eat bugs…Insects are the future of food and farming’

Dr. Jenny Josephs, a research psychologist, self described entomophagist and founder of  the ‘The Bug Shack’ website, spoke at the TEDx Talk conference at the University of Southampton. Josephs promoted eating insects instead of livestock in order to fight climate change. Josephs promotes recipes for cooking bugs. See: RECIPES – INSECT COOKING BASICS

Josephs ([email protected]) told TEDx Talk that ‘insects are the future of food and farming.’  Josephs notes that ‘gram for gram insects are about 100 times better in terms of greenhouse gas emissions than beef.’

DR. JENNY JOSEPHS: “Hi, my name is Jenny Josephs and I eat bugs. Insects are way better for the environment than traditional livestock farming…

Cows are known for creating a lot of greenhouse gas emissions and that is obviously a serious problem. Insects on the other hand don’t have to eat much food. They are cold blooded, so they don’t have to use a lot of energy to heat themselves. That means they eat less food and they produce less manure. Gram for gram insects are about 100 times better in terms of greenhouse gas emissions than beef…

Insects do have to be cooked…So one of the things I like to do, it is a very easy way to cook them is to just marinate them in something like soy sauce or Cajun sauces and then braise them in the oven for just a few minutes. And then you can eat them just as they are or you can add them to something like a mix of nuts and seeds.

So I hope I’ve managed to convince you that insects are the future of food and farming. I hope you can come and try some of my insect snacks and join the insect food revolution.”

Maybe without even reverting to cannibalism?…They put together a wholesome salad of lentils, foraged weeds, and a soupçon of dead bugs for nutritious post-apocalypse haute cuisine.’
