I love the Japanese concept of mottaini: letting nothing go to waste, or, more poetically, “waste not, want not.” There is a lot to admire in this approach to life, especially when it comes to food. When you consider the resources it takes to produce food, it seems absurd that we waste even the smallest bit. Yet we do.
I am fascinated by the matriarchal culture of these South Korean free diving women, which this post so beautifully introduced to me. These ladies are BAD ASS.
