Before I watched this video by the whip smart guys at AsapScience, I never considered eating bugs in my entire life. Now? Well. Damn. It actually makes a lot of sense. Raising bugs doesn't take nearly as much space as raising animals and it doesn't require the same amount of resources either. Heck, bugs may even be more nutritious than eating animals too!

And before we all get grossed out, we eat bugs all the time (they can be in our spinach, our peanut butter and even our beer) and people eat bugs all across the world. It seems like they figured out the secret of sustainable living while we just destroy the world for more burgers.
