Food Rules

This is a great article by a food warrior, Michael Pollan.  In this article, he discusses unhealthy lifestyles, health care reform and nutrition.  He provides some very simple ways to make over your diet.  Here's a snippet, "So I decided to take the doctors up on the challenge. I set out to collect and formulate some straightforward, memorable, everyday rules for eating, a set of personal policies that would, taken together or even separately, nudge people onto a healthier and happier path."

I agree with his rules!

  1. Avoid foods you've seen advertised on television.
  2. If it came from a plant, eat it.  If it was made in a plant, don't eat it.
  3. Don't eat breakfast cereals that change the color of milk.
  4. Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.
  5. Eat when you're hungry, not when you're bored.
  6. Do all your eating at a table (not a desk or coffee table).
