What's unsafe to feed my bugs?

    I'm trying to keep my insects as healthy as possible without spending too much money.
    As a staple I feed my mealworms:
    -Quaker rolled oats
    -100% wheat bran
    -reptile vitamins
    And I feed my crickets:
    The same thing except more variety in vegetables, based on whatever I had for dinner.

    So, I'd like to give them more variety, but I'm uncertain of what to feed them. I know avacados are bad, and same with things high in calcium. But is there anything else? What about tomatoes? Does it make any difference if the food happens to be cooked? What about meats? Things like left over pizza? (just throwin' out ideas, heh heh)

    I suppose I could just order it premade, but I'm really trying to avoid spending too much, as I'm on a limited budget.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
