I wanted to put a post in about surviving by eating insects. tongue.gif
They have ALOT of protein, and in a pinch....they could save your life.

Here is a link to HOW TO USE INSECTS AS FOOD
and what you need to do to prepare them......... Can you please pass the catchup? laugh.gif

And if you have a weak stomach for eating bugs blink.gif Here is a link to help get you prepared to chomp some Edible Insects

Skeeters and gnats taste like pepper. And flies, well, kinda hard to describe. Mushy and gooey. Once in a hwile have to pick a fly wing out of my teeth. But hey, it's protein!

I think the protein amounts from them are very interesting. B)

Just think........
QUOTE
Earthworms have a nice concentration of protein in a little package near 70 percent on a dry weight basis and they are entirely edible and abundant to collect. They are edible both raw and cooked.


And there not even "crunchy" Tom........ laugh.gif laugh.gif Just a little squishy!
