Once it was dished out over some white rice, the stir-fry was much like any other one I've had — except every few bites, I had to remind myself that it was okay that there were bugs in my food.
It's not easy to ingrain new food practices. But Gracer's description of eating waxworms makes me want to try even more insect species. And while there might not be a food shortage in America right now, it's the bug-eaters who will be prepared for the coming apocalypse.
As Gracer says, "it's sort of being a better citizen of the world . . . [to] work with my taste buds and my psyche" and to move toward greater acceptance of six-legged meals.
