Food Rules


– Michael Pollan

* Avoid products containing ingredients a third-grader can’t pronounce
* Don’t buy any food you’ve ever seen advertised on television.
* Just imagine your grandmother, or great- grandmother depending on your age, as you’re rolling down the aisle in the supermarket. If she would not recognize something as a food, it’s not a food.
* If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, you’re not really hungry
* Don’t eat anything that won’t eventually rot. There are exceptions — honey —
* Don’t eat until you’re full. Eat until you’re satisfied. The Japanese have a rule calles hara hachi bu, which means, “eat until you’re 80% full”.
* Do all your eating at a table. And no, a desk is not a table.
