what the world eats

A photo essay by Peter Menzel from the book "Hungry Planet. Link to these beautiful images at Time. So many of these photos show the infestation of American processed foods and the ever present Coke. My favorite is The Namgay family of Shingkhey Village. Slooooooow food is my goal. Slow, local, organic.

Good morning lovely lady. I have been missing you and hope you are doing well. Things have been busy and I have been avoiding the blog--not totally sure why--but just came back today and plan to keep it up. I love it when you read and I love it when I have time to read you. You know that, anyway. So have a great Sunday. Know that someone far away is thinking of you. XO

Very interesting. I posted about that photo-essay over on chowhound.com, here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/410018

It will be interesting to see what, if any discussion results from a community that is dedicated to eating well (but not necessarilly healthy or in moderation).

Interesting comparison within the various locations re: amount of packaging and pr-processed food items, eg pizza!!

Just this morning,here in New Zealand, there has been an interesting 'discussion?' about the amount of 'unhealthy' food available at schools. It has been suggested that schools should only provide 'healthy' food.

So...no more pies, potatoe chips, hot dogs etc, etc.... yeah we'll wait and see!!

Oh the obesity!

Now that I am getting oldish (50's) I have found that what I have eaten is coming back to haunt me. I hope its not too late to change my eating habits..my body is falling apart as I type..and I am sure much of it can be attributed to what I stuck in my piehole.
