Our parents always told us to “clean our plates” so we would not be wasteful as they pointed out that others around the world were not so fortunate to have abundant food. As an adult, I have seen hunger around the world at the same time as many of us in the US throw away so much food—about 40% of US food goes to waste! It is obviously a complex problem and the old Chinese proverb comes to mind: Give them a fish and they eat for a day; teach them to fish and they eat for a lifetime. How do we teach the world to “fish”?
My favorite food is sushi/sashimi. In my perfect world, I would eat it everyday. Not sure how raw fish gained such popularity, but I am definitely on that train 🍣
Is it health food or a health risk?? My theory is my stomach acid should kill any contaminates. Besides, it is yummy so I take my chances, usually at Osakas in Richmond or Osakas in Bristol. (No business affiliation)
Salmon and tuna are my preference! Can vegetables really qualify as “sushi”?? Throw on the soy sauce and wasabi and maybe so😜
