“There’s no more personal choice than what you feed your body, but what do you really know about the food you eat? Fat, carbohydrates and calories are listed on every label, but where that food comes from, what’s been added and what’s been removed isn’t as easy to see.” Oprah.com

Food Expert Michael Pollan’s Food Rules – Video – Oprah.com.

Here are a few of Michael’s Food Rules:

1: Eat food .

2: Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.

7: Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce.

13: Eat only foods that will eventually rot.

39: Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.

“It’s not that hard to eat well if you’re willing to put a little more time into it, a little more thoughtfulness into it and, yes, a little bit more money,” he says.
