If you have never read the Michael Pollan book Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, you definiteley should. Food Rules is a set of memorable rules for eating wisely and healthy. Many of which are drawn from a variety of ethnic and cultural traditions, his rules vary from short but sweet to laugh-out-loud funny. Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
  2. Better to pay the grocer than the doctor.
  3. Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
  4. Avoid food product containing ingredients that no ordinary human would keep in the pantry.
  5. Breakfast like a king. Lunch like a prince. Dinner like a pauper.
  6. Avoid products that contain more than five ingredients.
  7. Avoid food products with the word “lite”, “low-fat”, “nonfat” to their names.
  8. Avoid food that is pretending to be something it is not. (i.e. mock meats)
  9. Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay out of the middle.
  10. Eat only foods that will eventually rot.
  11. Get out of the supermarket whenever you can (i.e. shop at farmers markets)
  12. If it came from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t.
  13. Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.
  14. Get well grown food from healthy soil.
  15. Eat sweet foods as you find them in nature.
  16. Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.
  17. Pay more, eat less.
  18. Consult your gut.
  19. Don’t get fuel at the same place your car does.
  20. Cook.
