About Gastrobug

Our mission is to show people that insects can be a delicious, nutritious, and ecologically sound part of your diet. We're doing this by making incredible meals using insects as an important ingredient -- they're tasty creations that you'll just have to try -- and showing you how to make them yourself.

In addition, we're going to show you how easy and cheap it is to grow your own insects for food, right in your own home.

Eating Entomo and Entomovegan is the future, and Gastrobug is bringing it to you, now.

Gastrobug is run by Maddy and Brian, two people learning to love eating bugs, because it's a good idea. In addition to what we wrote above, this site is our journey to becoming more comfortable eating insects ourselves; we're learning as we go.
