What the world eats!
Someone at work sent an email with pictures of what typical families from around the world eat in a week and how much they spend. It was really an eye-opener to see the differences between various cultures. I was amazed at how little produce there was on most people’s menus. (You can view the photo essay by clicking here http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1626519,00.html ) We are a blessed country in that we have a wide variety of foods available to us - so you won’t hear me complain at all. However, what a shame that there is so little recognizable food on most people’s dinner plates. No wonder we have such an epidemic of lifestyle diseases. Go green – eat fruits and veggies and leave the highly processed foods alone! Let’s try to make our menus look like a poster advertisement for farmers!
