I love Michael Pollan's writing about food, which is both thoughtful and thought provoking. Pollan has a way of crystallizing what I'm thinking in the back of my mind into simple coherent statements.
Pollan has a new book out called "Food Rules." I haven't read the actual book yet, but he writes about it here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-pollan/food-rules-a-completely-d_b_410173.html. The few sample rules he gives show that the book should be a worthwhile read. Among my favorites:
- Avoid foods you see advertised on television.
- Don't eat breakfast cereals which change the color of milk.
- Eat all the junk food you want as long as you make it yourself.
- If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't.
