Michael Pollan of the “In Defense of Food” fame has compiled a list of 20 do’s and don’ts for food on the NY Times. It’s not only a great list with some provocative thoughts, but it’s also just kind of fun to flip through. Here are my favorites.
Emily and I are really into eating well and we try our best to follow some of our own rules we’ve picked up along the way (from folks like Pollan and others). Some of ours are: eat fresh organic foods when possible, the more veggies and the more colors the better, foods bought at the store with lesser ingredients (and ingredients you can actually pronounce or know what they are) are best, local foods farmed by people you know the names of are ideal, whole grains are good, and meat is a treat not a necessity.
Anyways, we recommend reading Pollan. You can see more of his the list here.
