Sometimes The Simplest Photos Are The Most Eye-Opening. These Ones Say So Much.

Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Families in countries all over the world have different traditions, beliefs and past-times. However, each family, no matter where they are in the world, needs to eat. That's why a photographer for Hungry Planet (shared on Reddit) traveled around the world to take pictures of what families would eat each week (and spend) in different countries. The differences between some of these countries is stunning. Who knew loaves of bread, rice grains and meat could be so different?

To see more of "what the world eats," get the Hungry Planet book here on Amazon. Hungry Planet is a gripping book that "profiles 30 families from around the world--including Bosnia, Chad, Egypt, Greenland, Japan, the United States, and France--and offers detailed descriptions of weekly food purchases; photographs of the families at home, at market, and in their communities; and a portrait of each family surrounded by a week's worth of groceries." Something so simple really puts our lives into perspective. Things like cheap Taco Bell really seem like a treasure. Source: reddit.com The real question is, though... what is Norway eating? Share this with your friends. How much do you think they eat each week?
