indigenous societies have always eaten bugs

You can eat most insects raw. The taste varies from one species to another. Insects such as beetles and grasshoppers that have a hard outer shell will have parasites. Make sure to boil them or cook before you try and eat them. There are different types of ants that store honey in their bodies,
giving them a sweet taste. Try mashing them up into a collection of insects into a paste. You can mix them with edible vegetation. Try cooking the ants to improve their taste. You can eat worms put then in water before eating this makes them a little better just swallow them whole.Snakes and reptiles are good also just need to cook them before you eat them. If you come accross a turtle you should not try and eat them. Look for dandelions they are nature's richest green vegetable source of beta carotene, from which Vitamin A is created, and the third richest source of
Vitamin A of all foods, after cod liver oil and beef liver. You can make a soup with the insects and dandelions.
