The very thought of eating insects grosses people out. The image of a creepy, crawly, bug working its way down your windpipe doesn’t exactly conjure up feelings of the contentment we feel with other foods.
But why not? How is it that a cow, pig, chicken, or fish seem more appetizing than other creatures? In other cultures who don’t have the “luxury” of consuming conventional sources of protein regularly, insects are a perfectly legitimate choice. In fact, 2 billion people worldwide eat insects regularly as a food source, and North America is JUST starting to catch on.
Would you rather miss a PB by a single second, or eat a grasshopper? Runners who are competitive enough would probably strongly consider the grasshopper in this moment… being grossed out is temporary, but pride is forever, right? Eating insects isn’t new. Including bugs are a main food ingredient (the technical term is entomophagy) is however becoming more trendy.
I have been blessed. Don't think that I don't recognize it. I do. I'm still insanely driven and hyper-entrepreneurial, so I'm not always satisfied, but I am grateful. I get to spend a lot of time with people that many business leaders would spend fortunes to connect with. Over the years, I've done my best to give back as well. Nothing is more fulfilling than speaking to students who are interested in business, innovation, technology and marketing. I happen to live in the same city as McGill University.
