Rules, Rules, Rules

Michale Pollan's new book Food Rules has been getting a ton of press lately which is no surprise, he is after all the most articulate, intelligent and high profile person talking about our screwed up food system and beyond sounding the alarm to wake people up about it he is also giving reasonable and sensible ways to help us all eat better.

Here are some highlights from an article he did for the Huffington Post - my favorite is #39 and my own personal rule is that wine and beer are delicious, but like food need to be taken in moderation! This is personal wisdom gained in the last 6 months after years of not drinking beer I started again in Berlin (who could resist?) and then Mexico? Well I have had t put a halt to it or I would be auditioning for Santa Claus jobs by Christmas!

#11 Avoid foods you see advertised on television.

#19 If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't.

#36 Don't eat breakfast cereals that change the color of the milk.

#39 Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.

#47 Eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored

#58 Do all your eating at a table.
