    It is hard to imagine how much food you are actually getting with a box of pasta or a bag a vegetables, however, seeing pictures is a much clearer way to understand. I am shocked by the amount of food they will expect a person to live on for an entire week. A person cannot live on pasta and lentils alone. As a college student I know I would not even be able to feed myself with only crushed tomatoes, a bag or lentils and a box of pasta. How could anyone feed themselves and stay healthy on that diet?
