Food Rules

I just finished reading an amazing book Food Rules by Michael Pollan on my Amazon kindle. This is a quick read of 64 rules to eating food. Some rules have descriptions some are self explanatory.

Here were my top 10 from the book in no particular order.
  1. Don't eat anything your great grandmother would not recognize.
  2. Avoid food products that contain more than 5 ingredients.
  3. Avoid foods you see advertised on television.
  4. Eat only foods that will eventually rot.
  5. Get out of the supermarket whenever you can. Think farmers market.
  6. Eat only food that have been cooked by humans. Think about that.
  7. Its not food if it is called by the same thing in every language think (Big Mac, Cheetos, or Pringles).
  8. Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.
  9. Limit your snacks to unprocessed plant foods.
  10. Eat food (my personal favorite).

Again this book is a quick read and those were my top 10 takes from the book but all are good lessons in eating. Looking for a good book to start getting ready for summer....check it out!

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well

  1. This is a really great list. It's how my husband and I try to live every day.

An avid home cook, I believe in using simple ingredients, local when possible and am inspired by the principles of supporting a sustainable food system. I’ve cultivated this blog as a way to share my passion for the preparation and enjoyment of food in a way that everyone from beginners to long time foodies can get involved in.
