I thought this was very interesting. Laura sent it with the comment that she was counting her blessings. Every day, I see people who are much more unfortunate than I am, though the folks in these pictures seem okay. As I stress about the job, the traffic, the price of gas or repairing a broken appliance, or the speaker on my cell phone, I should remember that I am healthy, have a nice house, a warm bed, a full belly when I crawl into that bed. I need to let go of the rest.
These pictures are of what these families typically eat in one week, along with the cost of that food. It's pretty eye-opening.
United States: $341.98.
It is interesting to note that some of the smallest families have the biggest budget. Budget also correlates with the amount of meat and processed foods, as well as the level of development of the nation.
