What the World Eats

The link below is a facinating TIME photo essay that shows 15 different families from around the world and the foods they will eat in one week. It also shows how much they will spend for that food. Of the two American families shown, one spends $159 a week, and the other spends $341...the least spent is an African family. They only spend $1.23 for their food for one week.

Wow! There's no way we spend even near $159 a week on food! I guess we're not a typical American family.

I know! One factor to consider though is that the families had kids, and they can eat a lot (especially boys). I'm sure we'll both spend more once we have older kids...

I think it would be so interesting to know what other couples our age spend weekly for food....
