Amazon’s Editor’s say:
Michael Pollan, our nation’s most trusted resource for food-related issues, offers this indispensible guide for anyone concerned about health and food. Simple, sensible, and easy to use, Food Rules is a set of memorable rules for eating wisely, many drawn from a variety of ethnic or cultural traditions. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat-buffet, this handy, pocket-size resource is the perfect guide for anyone who would like to become more mindful of the food we eat.
Why it changed my eating habits: This book gave me many useful and very easy to remember “rules” to hold in my mind with regard to food and the way my family eats. My favorite: “Pay more, eat less”. Another adage that has stuck with me: “If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, your not hungry.” If you’re short on time but looking to make a change in your families eating habits, this book is for you.
