While adding a ground bug to recipes might not seem that enticing, when you look at the long list of ingredients in some veggie meats, or think about what must be in a Twinkie to keep it edible on a store shelf, is a ground earthworm so bad? The North American diet is not without its bugs - shrimp, crawdads, and lobster essentially being the bottom-feeding bugs found in aquatic locales.
It should be noted, too, that some reports suggest more than 2,300 insect species are traditionally consumed worldwide, and the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization recognizes nearly 500 edible insect species. So maybe eating a few worms wouldn't be so bad.
