Interesting pictures of what people in different countries eat on a weekly basis.
This really puts things into perspective, a picture is worth a 1000 words. It really shows how big food corporations have their greedy fingers into almost every country & culture on this planet.
Is diet determined by largely uncontrollable forces like poverty, conflict and globalization? I think we are evolving into a World where individual choice, in all aspects of our lives, will be non-existant eventually.
There's a similar series by the same photographer, which focuses on a day's worth of food for different individuals, ranging from New York models, to Chinese acrobats, Iranian bakers and Brazilian fishermen.
Honestly, I'm not sure which image is most shocking; the Namibian woman scraping by on her meagre portions of monotonous corn gruel, or the morbidly obese American surrounded by what at first glance appears to be an almost obscene abundance of foods, but which in actual fact also mainly consist of reconstituted corn, artifically manipulated and processed to contain an equal number of calories as the Namibian woman's intake.
Talk about food poverty.
It seems like the Latin America and south Asia are kicking behind when it comes to food. Mongolia definitely looks tempting with all their meat, but its the greens(fruits/vegetables) that really stand out to me. I assume if you have those, then you have access to meat.
Im sad to see the Africans with all that grain, now I understand why my mom makes pasta and rice all the time(she's conditioned to do so) and underrates fruits.
Those people in Guatemala with the hut and shabby clothes look like they feast on the gourmet organic stuff i could barely afford from Whole Foods/Harris Teeter.
Would any of you trade lives with any of the families shown? Which ones?
I think I could go live with the Australians too. That's a HUGE amount of ground meat on that table with a fair amount of veggies and the crap is kinda off to the side.
Several of these spreads I am having trouble figuring out where the heck their protein is.
I think what's on the table in Australia. Kinda forget about the stuff behind them...
I'm extremely disappointed in their pick for a California family. Oh, well.
Canada looks significantly better than the US or Britain, even if not Paleo.
