These tiny insects will boost your food bar, but sooner rather than later you'll need to find some decent food to cook. You can get meat from all kinds of animals. When you're starting off against the smaller creatures, like rabbits and turtles, and you'll discover feral flesh.
In early game, go to the Pit of Yog, where you can select Yog as your God. You can then build a Yog Altar and get the recipe to craft the Yog Cleaver. With the Yog cleaver in hand, you can harvest humans by killing them, and grab yourself some Unblemished Human Meat.
Simply, bring that meat back to the Pit of Yog, drop it into the slot, and you can craft food in the form of Purified Flesh. This also gives you water!
