Food Rules | An Eater’s Manual

April 27th, 2010 by Justin Kemerling
[caption id="attachment_2067" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="The latest from Michael Pollan"][/caption] Food Rules. Simple. Handy. Easy to understand. A collection of rules for healthy eating answering the question, "what should I eat?" Some notable ones: #11 Avoid foods you see advertised on television. #36 Don't eat breakfast cereals that change the color of the milk. #58 Do all your eating at a table. #19 If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't. Goes nicely with the mainstay "eat food, not too much, mostly plants." All with the goal of getting people off the modern western diet, with its abundance of processed food, refined grains and sugars, and its sore lack of vegetables, whole grains and fruit. If you've got some to add, you can email Michael Pollan at
