So I went down this rabbit trail looking at regenerative agriculture videos…and wound up here, peering into a world where holistic interspecies management produces incredible vibrancy of life atop grass putting massive amounts of carbon back into the soil.

Contrast that with a soybean farm next door, devoid of animal or insect life and robbing the soil of nutrients due to mono-cropping, not to mention all that collateral damage…

Holistic grazing and closed-loop systems which INCLUDE livestock, is all pretty fascinating stuff. A net positive in the big picture is what I seek – the most good, while doing the least harm possible.

This doesn’t totally fit with entovegan since livestock are involved, but is it BETTER overall for the planet?

After nearly 5 months of study + immersion (thanks, forced covid-19 lockdown!), I’m pretty convinced. The best part in my view is the massive role that insects play in circular agricultural systems, and seeing how they can play an even larger role than most farms are using them for. That’s exciting!

More to come – I recorded a little podcast last month while driving talking a bit about this, I will be talking more about this over the next few months.

It’s not likely going to change how I eat, because I really do think I found the ultimate sustainable superfood diet…but given that it makes a ton of sense and in line with what I’ve said consistently (“it’s naive and quite eurocentric to think the whole world’s going to go vegan, but at least if the livestock / poultry / fish eat insects, it’s a huge step in the right direction”), it’s certainly something I can support given the unmistakable positive impact these type of agricultural systems can have on their local ecosystem.

I started this journey to see where it’d lead, and that’s what I’m going to continue doing and sharing what I’m learning along the way!
