The Food of Future: Insects

Inspired by today's interesting BBC article "Future Foods: What will we be eating in 20 years' time?" I'm bringing to you photos of edible fried insects that I took in Chiang Mai on a street market.

The aforementioned article predicts that, in 20 years' time, the staple of our diet will be insects! But don't worry, we might not have to eat them in the same form as they are eaten today in Thailand, Japan, or Africa, but instead we might get them in a processed form resembling today's burgers and sausages :)
