Why join the protein and cricket flour revolution?

I CARE! Do you care?

I never really considered the environmental impact of my food choices. I was not a vegetarian, because I was OK with the animals being “killed” for food consumption-- we are hunter-gatherers, after all.

However, as I learned more about the environmental impact of beef, chicken and fish farming, I began to feel a mixture of emotions; sadness, frustration, and bewilderment, just to name a few. For example, can you believe that producing one pound of beef uses the same amount of water as the equivalent of a shower every day for 6 months?

Isn't that extreme considering the global concern regarding the water shortage?

Crickets Make Your Trail Mix a Hopping Experience

Insect Trail Mix

Pack some protein in your trail mix by adding in some insects

What do you put in your trail mix? Nuts? Dried Fruit? Crickets?

Yup. That’s right, I said ‘crickets’.

Nick Hiebert, Founder of Ecotone Foods out of Manitoba, has created a delicious twist on an old trail tradition. He has popped roasted crickets, mealworms and super worms into a trailmix along with dried fruit like cranberries and blueberries, and an assortment of nuts and seeds.

Those who are curious and adventurous tasted the crunchy mix and quickly discovered that the bug laden power food is as delicious as it is nutritious. Cheryl Holmes, the reporter for CTV News in Winnipeg, happily crunched a big spoonful of the super snack.

So, what does Ecotone Foods have to do with Next Millennium Farms? Good question.

Next Millennium Farms supplies Ecotone Foods with their scrumptious insects for their trail mix. Click on the video in the article and check out 1:26-1:50 to hear Ryan Goldin, co-founder of Next Millennium Farms, talk about part of the process that is used to provide us with our crunchy critters.

I love trail mix. It is actually one of my daily standards, especially now that I’m making a concerted effort to eliminate unhealthy snacks from my diet (those that are the culprits know who they are!).

I blend in some raw sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, unsweetened coconut, and cranberries. So, after this article came out, I asked some other Next Millennium Farms team members how long they think it will be until food made with insects is the norm- not ‘specialty’ or ‘niche’ or ‘novelty’.

I say 1-2 years.

Hopeful? Maybe… Anyone care to make a wager?

Research at NMF:

Next Millennium Farms was inspired by the many studies that point to the astronomical global benefits of entomophagy, which catapulted the genesis of the term Geoentomophagy, and spurred the many research projects that Next Millennium Farms is a part of and that are currently under way.
