How to Eat Sushi with Chopsticks

Everyone has their own go-to comfort food. For some, that might be a heap of spaghetti and meatballs -- others crave tubs of ice cream. One of the most popular foods around, though, is something that you might not necessarily associate with comfort foods -- but that's all about to change. We're talking about sushi, people!

The delicious Japanese delicacy usually starts with a base of seaweed, sticky rice and sesame seeds -- and rolled up inside can be pretty much anything you can imagine. That's what makes it so incredible! Vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free people, pescatarians, and meat-eaters alike could all probably find common ground at a sushi bar. And if you're not convinced yet that sushi is the food of the future, the food of the people, and most certainly what's for dinner, you should turn to social media get some sense knocked into you.

Several social media gurus took to Kanvas, the popular app that allows users to create art, videos and much more, to document some of their most impressive sushi meals!
