Food Rules

I have had this book for awhile, but just came across it recently and it is full of great tidbits. The author, Michael Pollan, has written a few other books on the subject of food. Food Rules, is a quick read of some  conclusions Pollan has come to over the years. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize
  • Don’t eat cereal that turns your milk a different color
  • Don’t eat it if it has more than five ingredients
  • Dont’ eat it if it is made in a factory
  • Don’t get fuel for yourself at the same place you get fuel for your car
  • Don’t eat it if it has ingredients a third grader would not recognize
  • Only eat animals that have themselves eaten well
  • Only eat things that will eventually rot
  • Eat all the junk food you want as long as you make it yourself

There are many more tips and lots of food for thought.

And Happy St. Patrick’s Day
