its gross, i know. that's why i love it

gather the common bugs in your area and keep each kind in a separate jar. freeze them (its more humane then boiling) and take off legs, wings, etc. then, create a calorimeter to measure the nutrients in each species. compare and your done. oh, and don't forget to save some of each to try. i heard cockroaches taste like greasy chicken, and so do grasshoppers, locusts, and crickets! lol ;) i love bugs, and i have never tried them.
