My father’s family is from rural Hidalgo, Mexico so he grew up eating insects, various plants, and cacti out of necessity. I got introduced to these practices at a young age whenever we would go and visit. I thought eating bugs and cactus was totally normal. In fact most of the grubs and plants we ate were absolutely delicious. As I got older it really started to hit home that this wasn’t the norm. Why not? The food was/is good and sustainable. My grandparents have been harvesting various plants and bugs for as long as I can remember. Why not share my experiences and help these industries grow. Which is where Hygieia Health comes in.
