As a source of protein, insects are becoming a viable alternative to meat, since they require minimal feed and space and offer a beneficial Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acid ratio. This alternative also generates much less methane gas. Good for both the environment and the climate!
African teff is especially high in protein and already a big star on the celebrity horizon. The smallest grain in the world has been cultivated for 5,000 years in Ethiopia and is increasingly being used to make gluten-free baked goods. Teff is rich in silicic acid and minerals such as iron, which makes it an ideal ingredient for vegan dishes.
