Food Rules to Eat By

Straight from the pages of fresh food guru Michael Pollan's new book, Food Rules...here are a handful of simple guidelines to help you stick to your healthy eating resolutions more easily and hopefully make you laugh a little at the same time.

  • Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce.
  • Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.
  • Don't ingest foods made in places where everyone is required to wear a surgical cap.
  • If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't.
  • It's not food if it arrived through the window of your car.
  • It's not food if it's called by the same name in every language. (Think Big Mac, Cheetos, or Pringles).
  • Buy smaller plates and glasses.
  • Sweeten and salt your food yourself.
  • Don't eat breakfast foods that change the color of the milk.
  • Stop eating before you're full.
  • Eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored.
  • Don't get your fuel from the same place your car does.
  • Spend as much time enjoying the meal as it took to prepare it.
