Food Rules

food-rules-illustrated-editIf you are like me you may have made a resolution to eat healthier in the new year.  Here I’ve illustrated six helpful rules from Michael Pollan’s book Food Rules.

    “Never eat alone.” seems rather thoughtless, almost cruel, advice.


    • Thanks Cheryl. I looked it up and another place it says Try not to eat alone. I think it is good advice because visiting with others helps you slow down and enjoy the conversation as well as the food . This rule has helped me to realize that the social part of a meal is really far more important than what I am eating.
