I was killing time on my Flipboard app yesterday when I noticed a cool photo journal titled, “Hungry Planet: What the World Eats – in pictures.” California Photographer Peter Menzel traveled to 24 countries for the book Hungry Planet. The photo slideshow says that the point is to show “how much the world’s weekly groceries cost” and it does a good job of that (it’s really sad in some cases).I was more interested in what people are EATING.
Not shockingly, the developed countries are eating a lot more processed foods than anyone else. As I’ve mentioned before, processed foods can prevent you from losing weight and they aren’t good for you if you are hypoglycemic.
I know how much I spend on groceries, but I wonder, if I laid out my groceries on the table and took photographs, would I be happy with the results? Would you? It might be an interesting experiment.
