What the World Eats photo essay.
Can you believe the differences in the faces of the families? Seriously, does being in the "civilized" portion of the world cause us to frown and buy only packaged junk and convenience foods?! Notice the amount of JUNK purchased, especially in the South Carolina family
What family would you rather look like?
This one in Ecuador? (spends roughly $32 a week on food)
Or this one in Germany? (spends roughly $500 a week on food)
I'd rather be the first family, poor or not. Don't they look happier, more fulfilled?
And who could spend $500 a WEEK (7 days!) on food? I'm rather pleased to say that we eat, as a family of 6 (and almost a half), on $100 or less a week. That includes pet foods, paper products, and such.
