Previewing Michael Pollan’s Food Rules

Notable columnist and author Michael Pollan has a new book coming out on December 29th. That’s next Tuesday.

It’s called Food Rules ($7.42 on Amazon), and quite literally it is a set of rules to help people re-learn eating.

To promote his book, Pollan asked his New York Times readers to submit their own food rules. Here are a few of my favorites:

“It’s better to pay the grocer than the doctor.”

“If you are not hungry enough to eat an apple, then you are not hungry.”

“Don’g eat egg salad from a vending machine.”

While Pollan may throw in a few of these simple crowd-sourced gems, he will also put his food rules in the context of every food scenario, from shopping to eating out.

Unfortunately, I did not request an advance copy so I won’t be reading Food Rules until after its December 29th release. Expect a review shortly after.
