Sorry kids, we’re eating your science project tonight.

[youtube width=”425″ height=”239″][/youtube]There’s something to the whole eating bugs thing as long as People for the Ethical Treatment of Insects (PETI) are out of the way. Don Bugito’s Prehispanic Snackeria focus is mealworm larvae based foods that are high in protein and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Probably the most important advantage of eating mealworms is that they occupy a low rung of the food chain and so the energy transfer is not as wasteful as other animal based proteins. Another advantage is that for now, Don Bugito’s booth at the local food festival is going to have a shorter line.
