world food expenses

Here is a photo essay made by photographer Peter Menzel: What the World Eats. 

In 2005 Menzel took a photographic survey of the diets of families around the world, documenting what they purchased and ate in the course of a week. The results are visually striking – Menzel has cleverly remade the classic family portrait as an intimate archive of consumption and metabolism – and they also reveal a remarkable range in the quantity, quality, and variety of foods that families across the world take as quotidian. 

How about you, what do you eat in one week?
