  • What would a photo of YOUR week's Groceries look like?

    Here is a link with photos of people from all over the world with a week's worth of groceries. Interesting! As a friend of mine commented, "Mongolians consume more bread and less mare's milk than I would have thought. Mexicans are powered entirely on veggies and coke. Japanese eat strange little packages."

    That is very cool. I would move in with the Aussie, French or Japanese family.

      Super cool find. I keep meaning to do these but I never seem to be able to get all my groceries in one place at the same time without already having started something or forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer.

      All of the South/Central American food looked beautiful. God those plantains. I really liked the different lighting for each nation too. Don't know whether that was intentional or spontaneous.

        Couldn't do this, between stocking up the freezer once every couple of months and shopping for fresh food at least 5 days a week...

          It would look like a stack of canned fish, a big bag of sweet potatoes and a bunch of meat. Oh, and I bought some snap peas today. Pretty boring.

            What would a photo of YOUR week's Groceries look like?

            My groceries are always changing. Lately it is:
            1-2 dozen eggs
            3ish bags of frozen pineapple & mangoes, other fruits
            3 cartons cage free egg whites
            5-10 16oz 1% cottage cheese (no gums)
            (3lbs of meat +
            5ish lbs of grassfed beef neckbones every 1.5 weeks... Butcher shop)
            1L grassfed whole milk
            10lbs of organic potatoes (doing potato hack 3 days a week)
            Random other stuff: tea, coffee, sugar, maple syrup, light coconut milk, oj, etc.

            I want to buy more meat but no monies as I am traveling a lot this winter break. Cottage cheese & potatoes are cheap. 16oz cottage cheese without gums is $1.99! Trying to minimize debt so I will be debt free 3 years after I get outta law school.

            Edit: damn there are zero produce or fresh meat in the USA family one. Shit.

              Eggs, meat, greek full fat yogurt, and raw milk tend to fill fridge. There are some apples in the back somewhere...and we buy potatoes but use em so little that a 5 lb bag goes bad before we get through the darned thing . Kids got some gluten free rice cereal though that they like. Oh, we also always have carrots and bananas available.

              Actually I just went shopping today...I should take a picture, but I'll just list the actual items...should last us a few days:

              4 lb grass fed beef brisket
              1lb local roasted coffee
              2 quarts of full fat Traderspoint Creamery yogurt (one mango/andbanana one regular)
              1 quart of full fat goatsmilk yogurt
              1 box of rice cereal

              Stopped for the 2 gallons of raw milk at the farm on my way home.

              We already have 4 dozen eggs, 3 lbs of carrots, one bunch banaana's, a bag of granny smith apples, 1/2 bag of tators, several cans of salmon, tuna, and oysers at the house. Several bags of "california blend" veggies are in the freezer along with about 25 lbs of beef left from the last cow...also still have about a pound of bacon and a pound of sausage ready to go.

                  I'm considered thin (maybe not skinny) and I eat real food.

                    The pictures speak volumes on why obesity is such an epidemic in the USA and Great Britain. Holy cow at all those sugar, msg, and vegetable oil junk foods!!

                        You see that room the Japanese Family are sitting in? It's most likely the LARGEST room in the house (apartment). What makes it worse is they probably don't have a clothes dryer so they have to hangup the wash INDOORS to dry it off, which of course takes up even MORE space.

                        I have relatives in Japan and I have lived in Japan for extended times. Sometimes you feel like a Sailor in the bowels of a ship with everything hanging up and not much floor space.

                        Not surprisingly, this is the U.N. Model.

                          Yes, I know. I was speaking of the eels, fish and rice. I'm not really moving in with them. B-)

                              I know I saw that too... What the are those bottles oh beer!

                              All the food from "less wealthy" countries looked beautiful. Even Africa if only for the simplicity and honesty. And then there's Britain with their colourful packages and US with our MOAR COLOURFUL packages(!!1). Japan doesn't seem to be far behind us, wonder what we'll see from them in the next ten years.
