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?

Everyday Should Be Earth Day

Earth Month

It’s Earth Month

The future health of our planet is in our hands.

Each one of us. Together we can make a difference, if each one of us does our part.

What does this mean to you, to “do your part”? What does it mean to you to be environmentally friendly/conscious/aware?

For me, what it comes down to are the choices we make. This is easy for me to say. I thankfully don’t have to worry about my 3 top needs for survival like so many do; clean water, food to eat, a roof over my head.

This affords me the luxury to have choice.

So, I choose to use public transit on a daily basis. I choose to not let my car idle. I choose to turn off the lights in the rooms that are empty. I choose to use tap water over bottled water.

And, I choose to eat insects. Insects are the friendliest protein source around in terms of the carbon footprint that insect farming leaves behind, compared to other protein sources.

Insects are also a secret superfood. The nutritional profile is astonishing.

The choice is yours… for now. Soon, we might not have one.

Banana Maple Cricket Cake

banana_maple_cricket_cake

Maple, banana, cricket perfection

Gluten Free and Guilt Free (pretty much)

Made with Protein 2050 Organic Cricket Powder

Makes 1 Loaf
Ingredients
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup mashed banana – approx 2 large
4 eggs
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup tapioca flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp ground cloves
Frosting
1 cup powdered icing sugar
275 g cream cheese, room temperature
5 Tbsp maple syrup
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 325F
2. Grease a 1.5 quart loaf pan.
3. Whisk together butter and maple syrup, then whisk in
banana and eggs.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together Protein2050 cricket powder, coconut flour, tapioca flour,  baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
5. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
6. Pour the batter into your loaf pan.
7. Bake for 50-60 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the center is cooked. You can test this by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf- if it comes out clean then you are done. If sticky or gooey, then put it back in the oven for a few more minutes. Keep checking with the toothpick. Once it comes out clean, you know it’s good to come out of the oven.
8. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing the loaf to cool on a wire rack.
Maple Frosting
1. Place cream cheese and maple syrup into a bowl and beat well with an electric mixer.
2. Add icing sugar and mix well.

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.
