Michael Pollan’s Top 14 Food Rules to Healthy Eating

Michael Pollan’s Top 14 Food Rules to Healthy Eating

By: Scott

I’ve chosen what I found to be the 14 most all-encompassing and useful rules from the book. May they keep you fit, healthy and energized in the new year!
1. Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce.
2. Avoid foods you see advertised on television.
3. Eat only foods that will eventually rot.
4. It’s not food if it arrived through the window of your car.
5. Eat mostly plants, especially leaves.
6. Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.
7. The whiter the bread, the sooner you’ll be dead.
8. Have a glass of wine with dinner.
9. Stop eating before you’re full.
10. Eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored. If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, then you’re not hungry.
11. Don’t get your fuel from the same place your car does.
12. Do all your eating at a table.
13. Leave something on your plate.
14. Break the rules once in a while. “All things in moderation. Including moderation.”
Amazing how much a few simple rules can change your life, energy and body. Given that success comes form within, what a perfect place to start. Bon appetit.
What rules guide your eating habits? Which do you care to share? Which would you prefer to drop?
