Shelby Smith of Gym-N-Eat Cricket joined Van & Bonnie by phone this morning to talk about adding crickets to our diet! She sells them dry roasted or ground in protein bites. She grows the crickets herself..it takes about 8 weeks from egg to maturity. You can find Shelby at the Ames Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8AM-12:30PM, or on Facebook (Gym-N-Eat Cricket). Crickets are 50% protein, high in B12, calcium, iron and all nine essential amino acids! Maybe you could just throw a few in your smoothie!
Tomorrow on Van and Bonnie, the Lt. Governor, Adam Greg, will be joining us in studio along with a Hy-Vee representative. What's going on? We'll find out after the 7:30 news!
Enjoy the lower humidity later today!
