I learned this on a trip to Tulsa while reading Spirit, the Southwest Airline magazine.
More than 2.5 billion people around the world eat insects every day. In Cambodia, tarantulas are fried whole, with a little sugar, salt and garlic. And, a tarantula has 18 more grams of protein than a strip steak.
Yes, I am trying my best to eat less salt, sugar and processed food.
No, I am not eating more tarantulas. Remember that they’re cooked with sugar and salt and I am trying to avoid foods with too much sugar and salt. I also am trying to apply a little commonsense, a little reason to all of the advice I read about food.
