- A traditional dish from Greenland called kiviaq is made from fermented birds sealed in the skin of a seal. Clearly, this meal was concocted as a way to preserve meat, and it's not so strange to people who are accustomed to eating it. [url]
- There are plenty of ways to avoid eating gluten. One substitute for regular flour is made from ground crickets. Cricket farms are growing insects specifically for human consumption, and the insects are fed an organic diet. The economics of eating insect protein could become more favorable as resources get more scarce. [url]
- Another alternative source of protein comes from snails, and one variety (Helix Pomatia Linne) is called the "Kobe beef" of snails. "Sustainable. Methane-free. Organic. Free range. Snails are the ultimate protein source." (According to the only importer of these snails) [url]
