Why not insects?

Would you eat insects? Have you already? Apparently we are already eating about 500g of insects every year!

As our global population grows we are forced to look at sustainable ways of feeding the planet. If going 100% vegan is not an option for you why not look at adding insects as a source of protein.

This TED talk by Marcel Dicke shows how insects are entering kitchen around the world, as delicacies and to adorn fancy plates of food.  According to Marcel it takes 10Kgs of feed to get 1Kg of beef but the same 10Kgs of feed will yield 9Kgs of locust meat! This is an impressive return on investment and environmentally worth it.

Need a movie date to a new chick flick, speed dial your BFF and she's not there. If you're a mum, have you ever made plans with your fellow BMF (best mum friend) and she cancels on you because her baby is sick, or she's just having a bad day. If you have said yes to any of the above you generally have three options... go on your own, call in the B team, or completely cancel and eat a tub of ice cream because you feel rejected (or is that just me). Never again ladies! Your new BFF could be just a swipe away!

In an often isolating world, sharing our experiences as mothers on instagram has helped so many mums connect with other like minded souls going through the same highs and lows. I have loved watching fellow Brisbane super mum of five (yea mama!), Abbey Braithwaite, share her motherhood journey with the world. Her pictures are peppered with tiny fingers grabbing tasty morsels that she prepares and magical adventures with her little people. There is, of course, much more to this beautiful woman than you can share on instagram.
