What People Eat Around the World

Have you thought about how all the different stuff you eat in a week would look like to an outsider? Would they be shocked by some of your food choices? They might be especially if they come from a different culture. Well, photographer Peter Menzel created a project documenting one week of groceries for families around the world. In the book showcasing this project, Menzel displays the vast differences in the type and amount of food consumed around the world.  Some of the disparity is staggering, especially between developed countries and the rest of the world.
