Chocolate-covered ants and other novelty foods have been around for ages, but is anyone moving beyond the novelty foods and taking a deeper look at the real nutritional benefits of edible insects?

This week, Lucas Rockwood and Kevin Bachhuber discuss the topic of insects-as-food. Kevin has a Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin Steven's Point, one of the nation's top schools for wildlife conservation and natural resources.

 

A lifelong urban farmer, Kevin founded Big Cricket Farms in response to growing water shortages, the rising costs of protein production, and a simple desire to eat bugs with friends. In 2006 his travels to Thailand, Kevin was able to sample a variety of edible bugs including crickets, and found them to be delicious! Upon returning to the USA, he also discovered that there were essentially no commercial sources of crickets for people to eat, so he decided to create one. In 2014, the time was ripe, and Big Cricket Farms was born.

 

In this Show, You'll learn:

  • Why bugs might just be the future of food

  • The farming of bugs in real life (what it’s like)

  • Whether insects-as-food is truly sustainable

  • Living off bugs: is it actually possible?

If you hang out on social media, it’s easy to get caught up in the seeming importance of the outward appearance of yoga. It’s easy to develop ideals of what a yoga body should look like when in reality, you don’t need a skinny, perfectly-toned body to be a great yoga student - and as most yoga teachers will tell you, it’s irrelevant. Join Lucas Rockwood and Anat Geiger as they demystify the stereotypical notions of body image and yoga.

 

Anat Geiger teaches Taoistic principles of Yin and Yang in her classes. Anat has a background in dance, performance, and theater. She is certified at the 500hr level and has studied with Teresa Caldas, Dona Holleman, Paul and Suzee Grilley. She lives in Amsterdam and her "home studio" is called, YogaGarden.

 

In this Show, You'll learn:

  • That yoga is open to all, regardless of body shape

  • Anat’s view on the topic of yoga for yoga people vs yoga for everyone

  • More about the trend of “Big-bodied” yoga classes

  • Mainstream yoga: the good and the bad
