What the World Eats


Time Magazine did this recent article showing the food that typical families around the world eat in a weeks time.


It's amazing to look at the disparity of food that people eat and the amount of money they spend on food. Of course, we Americans are shown over indulging like we do in EVERYTHING!

Ms. Mac - look at those American's though all that "junk" food! I'm embarrassed for us.

I'm not sure where the magazine is getting their exchange rates from, but 155 British pounds is over $300, not around $250 as they list. Also, the Brit family's favorite foods are avocado, and mayonnaise sandwiches...Wow!

Livin' large!!!

Also...What the heck is the Sicilian family doing eating "frozen fish sticks" when they have all that great, fresh, local seafood at their markets each day.

Plus, no surprise, but look at all the beer and wine that German family is drinking each week. It kind of reminds me of...well...us!
