*Don't buy your food where you buy your gas.
*Eat only the things that your great grandmother would recognize as food.
*Avoid food with words in the ingredient list that a 3rd grader could not pronounce.
*Don't eat cereal that turns your milk another color.
* Don't eat it if it has ingredients that you would not keep in your pantry.
I have found this book to be a breath of fresh air for our family. Some really good changes have been made in our kitchen. I highly recommend this easy, enjoyable book to anyone who desires to make a few healthy changes to their diet.
Mr. Pollan also wrote The Omnivores Dilemma and In Defense Of Food. These would also be great to read if you really want to know the ins and outs and whys of food. He goes in to detail about the modern food manufacturing industry and current farming practices in America. I scanned both of these books and got a few really good tidbits. In the end though, I found the Food Rules book to be very practical and helpful in making the much needed changes in the way we eat. If you get the chance to read it for yourself, let me know what you think.
