    Initially I looked at this for the amusement factor but improved gut health and lower inflammation might be of interest.

    I have tried cricket flour, baked into chocolate cookies and similar. Flavour very strong and tends to dominate. Fine if you happen to like the taste. Not so good if, like me, you find it unpleasant.

    Now feeding the left-overs to my carnivorous plant which would otherwise go hungry since the installation of insect screens has eliminated its usual food source. The plant is doing very well.

    This disease has made me pretty desperate to try things at times. I have whole dresser drawers full of herbals & supplements but I have never been this desperate.

    Plus, my first thought was that many insects have parasites in their intestines...maybe not after being processed hopefully with heat...But
    I think I will take a pass on this one thank you.
