    "She writes that “Termites are a valuable source of protein, fat, and essential amino acids, in the diets of both primates and modern humans… While rump steak yields 322 calories per 100 grams, and cod fish 74, termites provide 560 calories per 100 grams."
    Why a termite is a better protein source than a beef steak - Eflex

    "Termites generally consist of up to 38 percent protein, and one particular Venezuelan species, Syntermes aculeosus, is 64 percent protein. Termites are also rich in iron, calcium, essential fatty acids and amino acids such as tryptophan."

    Consider Termites as a specialty food....unless Termite farming can attract Congressional farm subsidies, termites will only ever be a boutique specialty food. You can bet your house on it! ;)

    I read this but no one discusses how to prepare them.. I would have to be very VERY hungry to eat them raw

    Tan them with 91% rubbing alcohol soak in the alcohol for about a hour then tack to a board and place in the sun scrape the belly that's where the fat is and on a hot day it tans in about a hour and then it's tan you can do fur skins the same way if you don't want the hair to slip brain tan it the old saying just enough brains to tan your own hide ever animal has enough to tan there hide.

    eat them raw is how you do it

    Last resort food source for me would have to be pine squirrels.. Not all that tasty... Have eaten chipmunks and other small critter and would readily again..

    Think I'd stick to rice n' beans.

    But snake, lizard, ground squirrel, or tweety bird wouldn't necessarily be off the menu.

    Nice shot on the snake.;)
    In my area, cattails, clover, pine nuts, honeysuckle, dandelions, as well as the obvious wild fruits and nuts.
    I've eaten rattlesnake, tree rats (squirrel ), queen ann's lace is wild carrots, but by the time it flowers and is recognizable, the root is hard as wood, but can still be added to soup for flavor. Wild onions, chicory, if you can find it. Sassafras tea is made from the bark on the roots and was a staple for a lot of years, but is now to be avoided due to other traces found in the tea.
    I now have a small twist hand drill and spile in my bag, as many trees can be tapped for sap.
