Eating Bugs-introduction

By: Harrison
I am learning to persuade my audience using persuasive writing and emotive words. 

Did you know that there are hundreds of people around the world that actually eat bugs? Such as spicy critter fritters, ginger cricket cookies and wax worm tacos, just to name a few. What would your favourite bug recipe be? In my opinion I believe that all people should cook with insects. Most people are disgusted at the thought of having insects in their meals but it has been proven that people who do try bugs end up loving insects, when most people look at bugs it creeps them out, but once cooked these bugs can’t crawl and are delicious. When cooking with insects there are many benefits to include them in your diet, they are tasty treats for everyone, bugs are healthy and low in fat and cooking with insects can give you creative meal options from all around the world.

Eating Bugs

I am learning to persuade my audience using persuasive writing and emotive words.

Did you know that there are hundreds of people around the world that actually eat bugs? Such as spicy critter fritters, ginger cricket cookies and wax worm tacos, just to name a few. What would your favourite bug recipe be? In my opinion I believe that all people should cook with insects. Most people are disgusted at the thought of having insects in their meals but it has been proven that people who do try bugs end up loving insects, when most people look at bugs it creeps them out, but once cooked these bugs can’t crawl and are delicious. When cooking with insects there are many benefits to include them in your diet, they are tasty treats for everyone, bugs are healthy and low in fat and cooking with insects can give you creative meal options from all around the world.

Don’t judge a bug by its cover, judge it by its taste. We all have a sweet tooth at times for some tasty treats, so it’s silly not to cook with insects. Everyone should at least try cooking with insects once. We all do enjoy a treat or two, so why not try insects for a nice tasty snack? Try something like scorpion lollipops, mealworm fries, chocolate covered crickets. These are all exciting snacks that are easy to take with you and have them on the go. But if you don’t like having much sugar, you should go for one of the healthy options.

What is high in protein and full of vitamins and minerals? If you guessed bugs you’re correct. They are a great source of protein, so I don’t think It should be an apple a day keeps the doctor away, I think it should be a bug a day keeps the doctor away! Beetles, cockroaches and crickets are one of the healthiest bugs you can eat. Any type of insect generally has the same amount of protein as an egg but the best thing is they are lower in calories which means you can eat as much as you like without putting on weight. Bugs can be a very healthy and nutritious food but if you are still feeling a bit squeamish about them you can try creating amazing meals with them that taste just as good as one of your favourite foods!

Did you know that these yummy foods can be made better for you by just adding a nutritious bug? Foods like this have been made all around the world with bugs in them. They are so delicious that you don’t even notice you are eating a bug, so you’re not only getting the tasty treat but it becomes guilt free since it has the added nutrients from the bug. There are thousands of recipes with bugs that can make you rate them ten out of ten.

Finally as you can see there are a lot of reasons why you should cook with insects. Using insects in treats can make them taste better than without bugs and that is also the same with the healthy foods as well, you only need to just add a bit of bug and your food will taste great. But you can’t always tell what it tastes like from the looks.

Prayers

Week 5 and 6 were busy for Room 6 we presented our assembly in week 5 and had whole school prayers On Monday, Week 6. Our theme for prayers was community, compassion and discipleship. This was inspired as we approach Christmas and start to think about others and those who are in need of help. Our reading was 1 John 3: 16-18, we also presented a song that we put lyrical dances moves to our song was: So will I.
