Increasing Protein Consumption with Insect Supplementation


Found a fruit fly in a basket of strawberries.  As I went pick it off, I considered eating it.  Although it was dead, hahaha, I thought maybe that the refrigerator had perhaps   cryogenically frozen this little insect, preserving all of the freshness.  HHAHAHA.  I threw the fly in the garbage, but it reminded me of hearing once that insects, specifically grubs or larva, are a great source of protein. 




When people tell me that they need to increase their protein intake, I jokingly tell them they should eat some insects.  Although certain insects will most certainly kill you, is anyone aware of eddible insects high in protein.  Is that something any athletes are practicing.
