“Sustainability” is a popular buzzword in many circles – sustainable communities, sustainable development, sustainable agriculture, sustainable building, sustainable growth – heck, even sustainable fashion. But what does “sustainable” really mean, and how do we apply it in our daily lives – or is sustainability what we really want? I’d suggest that we strive for something more. Sustainability and self-reliance talk often go hand in hand, so August and I decided to share some of our thoughts on the subject….
I was browsing the Missouri Entomophagy page on Facebook recently when I spotted a post about Chapul Cricket Bars. I’ve been rolling around the idea of eating bugs. (After all, they eat my garden, so why not give them some payback, right?) Eating bugs that have been neatly processed by someone else seemed like a great place to start. 🙂 Note: For those who are not familiar with the term, “Entomophagy” is using bugs for food.
