A few years ago I received an email photo essay that I wish I had saved. I search the web and found something similar. Time Magazine’s What the World Eats compares weekly grocery purchases–the items and the cost—for families in a number of countries around the world.
Look carefully at each photo. Several will have you counting your blessings. Several will have you appalled.
Note the amount of fresh foods and packaged items, the beverages and also the number of people that budget feeds.
Then think about what YOU eat.
Fast food, prepared frozen dinners, lots of alcohol…..are ruinous on your budget…..and probably on your health.
