what the world eats

Italy: The Manzo family of Sicily
Food expenditure for one week: 214.36 Euros or $260.11

My boyfriend and I have started to try and eat more seasonal, locally grown veggies and fruits.  So I was pretty interested when my coworker sent me this blog post that visually shows the typical diets of families around the world.  I think that I would like to live in Sicily, Mexico, or Egypt!

The photos were taken from a Time magazine piece- see the original 16 photos here.  The photos have also been made into a book that you can preview on amazon
