What We Eat...

As Americans, most of us get obsessed with food (or trying to eat less of it) after the new year...Resolutions and all that...

Almost as if on cue, I received this from my friend Tara today.

Thought it was interesting...especially how more and more people get added to the pictures, even though the food gets smaller and smaller.

Its also interesting where the fruits and veggies are...

Enjoy!

Wow - so interesting. I'm rather amazed at how high some of those amounts are for one week's groceries. Although I did note that the the German family's seems to be a lot of beer.
