May is CalFresh Awareness Month! I am taking the CalFresh Challenge to bring awareness to those who qualify. I will also try to stretch my budget as much as I can to eat fresh and healthy foods. I will blog about my experience here.

Food For Thought - 80 Diets Around the World
"What I Eat: Around The World In 80 Diets" Shows Stunning Portraits Of Daily Meals
The different kinds of foods people eat around the world are endlessly fascinating. We want to know what other countries eat for breakfast when we're shoveling down a bowl of cereal or enjoying our eggs and bacon. We're curious about the way people eat and which customs are taboo, and what people consider "healthy eating." We want to know what kids are eating for lunch and what governments are feeding their soldiers.
Photojournalist Peter Menzel and writer Faith D'Aluisio have satiated our curiosity in a new way, breaking down what individuals from all over the world eat in one day. In "What I Eat: Around The World In 80 Diets," Menzel and D'Aluisio document a stunning array of individuals' daily sustenance. The subjects of 'What I Eat' run the gamut from a coal miner and a call center operator to a sumo wrestler.
The book is arranged by the number of calories each individual consumes. Context from D'Aluisio accompanies each portrait, and essays from food experts such as Michael Pollan appear throughout the book.
