[dropcap]I[/dropcap]nsect protein bars | During my study I wrote a marketing/business plan for a new to introduce mealworm burger; a burger made from mealworms. Using insects in the Western food industry was new and upcoming that time, but I foresaw the benefits of using insects as a sustainable protein source. Besides sustainable, insects are a highly nutritious protein, iron and omega 3 acids source.  
 
Insects contain:  

I didn’t go any further with my business plan, but Chapul did with hers. Chapul produces to-go protein bars.

Their base is cricket, but don’t worry: you won’t notice you’re actually eating insects. That’s because Chapul grinds crickets to flour and mixes the flour with tasty, all natural, non-GMO, soy-free, dairy-free superfoods.

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]hia Pod | Chia seeds are an ancient protein rich, omega 3 rich, fiber rich seed. The story goes that Aztecs took a few hands of the seeds before they went on warrior path, providing them with enough energy to fight all day long. This underlines the highly energizing properties of the seeds.
 
Chia seeds are probably not new to you, but I am sure easy-to-take chia Pod is. Chia Pods contain one full serve of Australian Grown sun ripened chia seeds mixed with coconut milk and real fruit. That’s it; no sugar or unnatural flavorings or colorings added at all. Chia Pod is cold processed to ensure that raw nutrients are retained. The Pod’s are furthermore vegan and dairy-free and contain 100% of the daily recommended value of omega 3 and 25% of the daily recommended value fiber. All ingredients are sustainably farmed and 100% chemical free.
 
Chia Pod has chia seeds and coconut milk as a base and adds different kinds of fruits to create its unique flavors:
