What are you having for dinner tonight? If you were living in another part of the planet what would you be having? How might your life be different?
Here are three photo esays made from photographs from the book “Hungry Planet” by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio and published by Time.
What the World Eats, Part I -What’s on family dinner tables around the globe?
What the World Eats, Part II -What’s on family dinner tables around the globe?
What the World Eats, Part III -How families around the world shop and prepare their meals.
Once you have looked through the photo essays, post a comment about what foods you eat that might be rejected by other cultures or why people eat foods you wouldn’t or how where you live might impact your health?
