Even if we aren’t aware, we are constantly influenced by culture.
It might seem strange to eat a plant that shows up in soggy piles on the seashore, but think what would happen if we changed our culture to incorporate this nutritious and beneficial vegetable into our diets. Trying new things can lead us to so many positive things. Never be afraid to explore something (like kelp for dinner) that might seem strange; it might just be your new favorite food!
The world is a big and beautiful place, full of unassuming things with unexpected uses.
