A Good Read :: Food Rules

Just in time for the aftermath of Thanksgiving feasting and the onslaught of holiday parties about to occur, Michael Pollan's revised version of Food Rules: An Eater's Manual has hit bookshelves and is ready for reading.  The second edition includes adorable illustrations from Maira Kalman, along with a refreshed introduction and new "rules" including--If you're not hungry enough to eat an apple, you're probably not hungry; When you eat real food, you don't need rules.  

This is a quick and dirty read (literally 45 minutes or less) that provides humor, wit and streamlined, simple tips of how to eat well (read: delicious food) AND stay on track through the holiday season...and every day after.

Among my favorite rules from the new book:

1. Don't eat anything your great grandmother wouldn't recognize as food

2. Avoid food products containing ingredients that no ordinary human would keep in the pantry

3. Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third grader cannot pronounce

4. Cook

5. If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't

6. Treat meat as a flavoring or special occasion food

7. Sweeten and salt your food yourself

8. Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself

9. Have a glass of wine with dinner

10. Serve the vegetables first

11. Break the rules once in a while


Here's to kicking off a fabulous holiday season!
