Where in the world does your grocery spending rate?

Posted by Matt

Check out Time magazine's amazing photo essay about what the world eats. I'm sure my mother would have loved to show me these photos when I was a bratty kid refusing to eat my rice.

The weekly spending ranges from $1.23 to over $500. It was interesting to go through this and see what kinds of things might be considered staples in various countries (the US families had comparatively few vegetables) and what might be driving up the bill (in Germany, maybe the beverages and/or meat.)
