Rule #1: Eat food.
“Seventeen thousand new products show up in the supermarket each year, all vying for your food dollar. But most of these items don’t deserve to be called food–I call them edible foodlike substances. They’re highly processed concoctions designed by food scientists, consisting mostly of ingredients derived from corn and soy that no normal person keeps in the pantry, and they contain chemical additives with which the human body has not been long acquainted. Today, much of the challenge of eating well comes down to choosing real food and avoiding these industrial novelties.”
Brought to you by one of my biggest heroes, food journalist and activist Michael Pollan, who’s based right here in the Bay Area. Hollah! I just finished reading his book, Food Rules, from which I shared with you this lip-smacking morsel.
This book is bomb. Short and digestible with clear, commonsense language. I checked it out of the library and read it in about two hours the other night before bed. Have you read Food Rules yet? How have you applied some of his lessons into your kitchen? If you haven’t dug into it yet, get ready to be super-inspired. Order it online from Indie Bound by clicking here. Let me know what you think!
Lots of love,
