Alternative food source?

OK so we all are used to normal everyday food. A lot of people use meat as main ingredient of their meals. Of course there are a lot of alternatives to meat - soy, vegetarian foods etc. But what about all these little creatures around us? No, not pets and squirrels (lol), I’m talking about the ones that a lot of us are afraid of – insects. Sounds kind of disgusting and extreme huh?  Despite all that insects are used as food, even as delicacy in some countries. For example they are an important source of protein in central Africa and delicacy in Thailand. I’m not promoting the idea of insects as food, never even tried any dish made of them, but I want to share this video that expresses interesting view of using insects as alternative food source. Hope you enjoy it, here is the video:
