National Restaurant Association Blog –
If Eating Bugs Will Save The World, We’ll Need a Culinary Hero. http://show.restaurant.org/Connect/Blog/July-2014/Bugs
When I saw the title of this blog my immediate and very visceral reaction was “Ah HECK NO!”. I have seen a few articles in my scanning of trends that I do daily where there is this discussion about bringing bugs into the modern North American food chain and I can say I am unequivocally against this movement and I pray dearly that it will never come to pass.
I am firm believer in just because you can do something doesn’t mean you have to do it and more importantly it doesn’t mean you should. Honestly, how many fads and ideas have been come into existence claiming to be able to do this or that (some with scientific back up of the times) just to be debunked years later as unhealthy or just plain stupid? Hasn’t your mother or some wise person ever said to you: if all your friends decide to jump off a bridge would you do it just because they did it? If you are a: rational, logical and independent thinker than the answer should be a resounding no.
I’ll admit, I am not the most adventurous eater out there and I have some definitive food issues where certain food types make me inexplicable ill but I for one think that this food trend train one that needs to be de-railed regardless of whatever scientific “facts” come out of studies.
