My sweet prince, Marty,

I came across below article, and hope you can access the link. It shows families around the world, what they eat in one week and how much they spend. It is a very interesting article with very revealing pictures.

Here is that article:  http://themetapicture.com/hungry-planet-what-the-world-eats/

There is a family from Tingo, Equador. They are 9 people, all are happily smiling and are spending USD 32 on food per week. I don’t see any meat/fish nor processed food in their home. They are all slim.

1

There is a family from Mexico.  They are 5 people and are spending USD 189 per week. They are doing pretty good as far as veggies and fruits are concerned but they have a bad coke habit. I bet that is what makes them chubby.

2

There is a family from Guatemala. They are 7 people and are spending USD 76 per week. They are pretty good veggies and fruit eaters. Don’t see fish or meat. Maybe two hamburgers and a bit of processed food.

4

There is a family from Japan. They are 4 people (I don’t count the guy on TV) and they are spending USD 361 per week. They eat a lot of fish and I also see meat. But what is surprising is how much processed food they are eating. 

5

There is a family from India. They are 4 people and they are spending USD 45 per week. They eat a lot of veggies and fruits but also some processed food. 

6

There is a family from North Carolina. They are 4 people and are spending USD 342 per week. It is shocking what they eat and what they don’t eat. Except for a few grapes, somebody should tell them that there is such a thing as veggies and fruits!

7

There is a family from Canada. They are 4 people and are spending USD 158 per week. They eat more veggies and fruits than the Americans but also quite some processed food. Looks that they don’t trust their tap water as they buy bottled water.

9

There is a family from Mali. They are 15 people and are spending USD 30 per week. Almost all are smiling. They are mainly eating grains. The reporter should have made a list of what those items are, that would make his article even more interesting.

10

There is a family from Australia. They are 7 people and are spending USD 428 per week. Meat, processed and junk food and it shows! That is half of a cow or pig on their table. They also don’t trust their tap water. 

OMG

There is a family from Egypt. They are 12 people and are spending USD 78 per week. They like veggies but also meat, cheese, and processed food.  

11

There is a family from Bosnia and Herzegovina. They are 5 people and are spending USD 90 per week. They seem to eat everything, sausages, meat, but not enough vegetables, too much processed food and what is all that white bread for? 

12There is a family from China. They are 6 people and are spending USD 65 per week. They eat lots of veggies, fruits grains, tofu, but also some processed food and meat. Don’t see any seafood.  

13

There is a family from Italy. They are 5 people and are spending USD 295 per week. These people eat more bread and pasta than anything. Junk food as sodas too.

15

There is another family from Canada. They are 5 people and are spending USD 392 per week. They eat a bit more veggies and fruits than that family in North Carolina but very similar to them.

17

And finally, there is a family from Kuwait. They are people and are spending USD 252 per week. They eat veggies and fruits but also lots of processed food. They don’t trust their tap water either.

16

They haven’t published any picture of a Bavarian weekly food table. It would consist of ham, bacon, sausage, some pretzels and beer! 


18I am thinking: will people still eat meat if supermarkets and restaurants would have life cows, chickens, lambs, turkeys on display that they can pet while eating? I bet many would become vegetarians instead.

I miss the food that I remember from our village.

You noticed, that I had some time to play today. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen often. But what always happens is that I think of you, and I love you, Marty, 

Many kisses, my sweet heart!

Yours forever,

Sarah/Barbara
