This is a fun, quick read that is dense with helpful information on right eating, by the master of food writing, Michael Pollan. The author has compiled over 60 clever and memorable rules for eating healthfully (and you don’t need to remember them all, just the ones that resonate with you). He starts out with three connected statements as over arching rules of right eating. “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” He follows this up with more specific rules (many, of thumb) like: “Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third grader cannot pronounce”, “Drink the spinach water”, “Stop eating before you’re full.” Pollan collected these tidbits of wisdom from a variety of sources including readers of a NY Times food blog. He then researched the history and science behind these “rules” and decided whether they made sense and were, in fact, healthful. The result is a collection of easy to understand rules for healthful eating in the modern world. Whether you are a fast food junkie who has seen the light, a vegetarian and reader of food labels, or some flavor in-between, there will be something in here for you.
