United Kingdom: $340/week
Darlings, what are your eating habits? Do you know how much you spend weekly on your groceries and take out’s? Do you have a well-balanced diet? I’m totally gobsmacked by those incredibly unique and eye-opening snapshots of global eating habits. It seems that the food gulf between nations is humongous!
For example, a family of four in France spends on average $416 weekly on their food, while a family of 13 in Bhutan spends only $4.95. Shocking, isn't it? Also, Italian families seem to have the most balanced diet with tons of fish, veggies, fruits and pasta. All those families are a part of Peter Menzel's book, The Hungry Planet. Peter and his wife Haith visited 30 families in 24 countries and photographed them with their weekly food purchases, including a detailed description of all the things they eat weekly. Peter hopes that his book will become our culinary atlas of the planet. So interesting, isn’t it? This project makes me look at my diet in a whole new way! xo
