Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual
Posted on May 4, 2010 Comments (11)
Good advice from author Michael Pollan on eating from his new book, Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual. Essentially he suggests eating food. Stuff you can picture in the original form (apples, cashews, celery, trout, tomatoes, grapes, steak, strawberries, milk, figs, peppers, peaches, almonds, chicken) not chemical additions (yes I know real food is made up of chemical – this is additional chemicals). One quote: “the biggest gains in human health can be made from changes in food policy.”
Human health is a complex topic but if we care about our health it is a tough issue we have to try to understand. He makes a good point in his talk about the value of exercise. I do believe exercise is an important component to how to be healthy (as is food – I don’t think it is easy to be healthy without both).
