THAT WAS SO LAST YEAR….

- 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.
