Rule #1: Eat Food.

I just got my copy of Michael Pollan’s “Food Rules”, and I’ve been reading the “rules” out loud to my family. If you can believe it, my children are really interested!  “What’s the next one, mom?”

He sums it all in 7 words. “Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

Part one of the book is the “What should I eat” part. Rule #1 is “Eat Food”. He sums it up by saying that most items in the supermarket don’t really qualify as food because they are highly processed. He states that much of the challenge of choosing food today lies in choosing real food and not these “industrial novelties.”

Have you read the book? What would your #1 food rule be?
