Michael Pollan

Really been getting into Michael Pollan’s new special on Netflix,  Cooked.   I’ve been a big fan of his work since Omnivore’s Dilemma.  From there his next two books were even better with In Defense of Food and Food Rules.  Each book is a little more distilled down than the next.  If you were allowed only one book about nutrition Food Rules wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

A few of the 64 Food Rules

  • don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food
  • avoid food products that make health claims
  • avoid food products that contain more than 5 ingredients
  • eat mostly plants, especially leaves
  • eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself
  • eat when your hungry not when you’re bored
  • cook
