A mix of vegetables, nuts, animal protein - I imagine grubs were a favourite of prehistoric humans? A prawn is quite similar an 'insect' when one thinks about it? List of Edible Insects | Girl Meets Bug
I do think that we eat way too much meat though. Fish is a far better option. I've cut my meat intake down drastically the last few months, I do love a steak I must confess, but on balance, I actually feel much better with more veg, fruit, lentils and fish, more energy and less lethargic.
I'm also starting to get very uncomfortable about slaughtering methods, especially for pigs who are seriously smart animals.
I'd have no problem eating synthetic meat, although some would argue that it is 'not natural'. Neither is flying at 30,000 feet in a metal tube, talking to someone on the other side of the planet using electrons or imbibing poisons either drinking or inhaling them?
