This slideshow from Time magazine on 'What the World Eats' is absolutely fascinating to me. The photographs show families around the world with their weekly food purchases, with a sampling of what they eat, as well as what they spend. Can you spot the American family?

These images are from the book "Hungry Planet, What the World Eats" by Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio. There is also a children's book by Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio called "What the World Eats." For further information please visit
