"Journalists love writing stories about how insects are high in protein. . . ."

David Frum
@davidfrum
Journalists love writing stories about how insects are high in protein because they know there are no clicks in reminding people about beans.

@Reuters
Mealworms may soon find their way into Europe's pasta bowls and dinner dishes after becoming the first insect approved in the region as a human food https://reut.rs/3oBhbYO

1. No doubt I've eaten worse, but I'll (knowingly) stick with beans

No, I'm not strict vegetarian and yes, I do feel bad about eating even the very limited meat, poultry, even fish that I do. But, I do.

2. It's all about culture. If you were brought up eating mealworms

You would think your day was incomplete without them. The ONLY time I look down on the things people eat are when they are sentient beings or endangered species. (whales)
