* ''FilmationsGhostbusters'' has "Moon-Blooms," a potato-like[[note]]They look and grow like potatoes, but seem to function more like cacti[[/note]] plant that's grown on the Moon and, according to [[BigBad Prime Evil]], "can wipe out hunger...[[CardCarryingVillain I don't like that!]]" Each Moon-Bloom pod is filled with a thick, nutritious pink paste, which tastes and smells wonderful (given that it's pink, the flavor must be "bubble-gum"), and is ''very'' sticky. All three of these qualities are bad news for Prime Evil: Squeezing a pod and covering him in its sap makes him fly into a rage.

*** A similar mentality is often attributed to Okinawans in Japan, perhaps because Okinawa has had more historical contact with China than the rest of Japan. The cuisine is said to begin and end with pig, despite being a warm, tropical island and part of a culture where rice, fish, and soy are the most common foods in the rest of the country. They, too, claim to be able to use everything but the squeal, and offal is quite a common dish.

* Westlandia is about a nerdy outcast cultivating some tall, lotus-resembling stalk flowers in his backyard. Their seeds can be eaten, their petals used to make clothing and housing, their oil burned for lamps, their stems as sundials (which for some reason run on a different division of time). Eventually, he practically builds a new society from the ground up, proselytizing all his former bullies as new citizens.

** Nomadic and herder populations worldwide who have "adopted" a particular animal have ended up engaging in similar practices, using the animal in every way possible. The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' example above about horse nomads is based on historical accounts of the Mongols, who supposedly even drank horse blood as an emergency food. The Maasai of Kenya still mix cow blood with milk as a protein source (along with meat), though less commonly than they used to.

** The Sto Plains aren't ''quite'' like this about cabbages, but it's close. They do brew a cabbage beer (it's got a good head), and the supplementary material mentions clothing made of cabbage leaves.
