When do we get our food made out of insects? The day is coming; we'll need a protein source.

Hmmm, like chocolate? How 'bout peanut butter? Drink coffee? If so then you're already ingesting roach and other bug parts, the FDA allows so many parts per million because it's impossible to keep all them out. There is a wide variety of foods that legally contain insect parts and even rat hair

The insects themselves will be the protein source. Sort of like tempeh...except made from insects.
