If you are focusing on K2 alone, natto is off scale. For zinc, by far the best common source is beef. It is not nearly as high as oysters, but when you compare daily eating of beef with once a year oyster platter, beef dominates. You want to make... (more)

Good source of glucosamine/chondroitin. Good for joints. Shells and tails are often used in stock, like bones of other animals. I imagine a good source of calcium and other unspoken minerals, but don't quote me on that.

Sodium to Potassium is very important as a contributor to hypertension. The RDA on potassium is 4g/day but most people would be lucky to get half that.

Actually I have read that insects have 10 times more protein per ounce than beef. Native hunter gatherer societies still eat insects. Go ahead, leave those ants on your lettuce!
