Crobar | Why Eating Crickets Can Be Good For You*

Hi Loves

I have another lifestyle post for you today. Lately I’ve been really focusing on being a lot more healthier than I have been over the past year or so. I’ve felt my weight creeping up and overall I haven’t been eating as well as I used to. Last week I made a change, I went to the gym 4 times and have been eating more fruit and veg. The hardest thing to control is the snacking in between meals.

I first came across the Crobar by Gathr Foods at The Blogger Hangout LFW event. When I saw the word ‘crickets’ I had to re- read it to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. I’m not the type to try unusual foods, I tend to stick to what I know so this was very risky for me to try. However, I thought it tasted really good, like a normal energy bar but this has additional health benefits.

Why are crickets good for you?

Iron – Crickets contain more than twice as much iron as spinach

Vitamin B12 – 10g crickets contain your daily dose of vitamin b12

Fat – Contains half the amount of fat than beef

High Quality Protein – Contains the essential fatty acids

 

Good for the planet

Less food waste – Reducing environmental contamination

Less air and water pollution – Emit 80 times less CO2, and require significantly less water than cattle rearing

Better animal welfare – crickets lack the neurological structures which make humans and other animals feel pain, and are farmed without the use of antibiotics, hormones or pesticides.

Lower risk of disease

 

100% of the population unintentionally eat insects, so when you look at that statistic, it doesn’t seem that bad does it?

When I look eat some of the energy bars I snack on from the super markets, it’s shocking to see actually how unhealthy they really are.

 

What do you think about eating crickets? Would you be willing to try this?
