The Japanese are favoring a new food trend, which would be eating bugs.
The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "Fried cicadas, wasp larvae rice and smoked cicada nymphs are all on the menu at an insect club in Tokyo. The Insect Cuisine Research Association, founded in 1999, promotes the culinary use of insects not only for their nutritional value, but for their eco-friendly nature and sustainability."
The United Nations has even introduced cookbooks for bugeaters.
According to the Telegraph, "The club's founder, Shoichi Uchiyama has written a cookbook with his favorite bug recipes and continues to concoct different crunchy treats, such as chocolate and rainbow sprinkles cicadas, to try out at his next feast."
The UN is recommending that people eat bugs for balanced nutrition.
