There are around 1,900 edible insect species in the world, so it’s no surprise the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture recently issued a report on the benefits of incorporating insects into the Western diet. Certain Asian and Mexican culture groups have taken advantage of these edible creatures for many years, but the western world is having some trouble catching on. Here are a few places that have no problem taking on this challenge.
