Best Health - - NEWS - By JILL BUCHNER

Like ev­ery­thing else in life, health and well­ness ideas evolve from year to year. So what’s hot right now? We went to the ex­perts for the scoop.

This year you might find your­self re­plac­ing your bor­ing old protein pow­der with cricket pow­der. Hear us out — crick­ets are packed with protein, iron, zinc, cal­cium and even omega-3s. Plus, they emit 100 times less green­house gases than cows, so they’re way eas­ier on the planet than whey pow­der. They are al­ready be­ing farmed in Canada, but don’t worry — no one ex­pects you to crunch right into a bug. Com­pa­nies like Coast Cricket Protein have con­cocted peanut but­ter, and dark choco­late protein bars to help them go down a lit­tle eas­ier.
