What to Eat ?

"Eat less of better food," Marion Nestle

". . . Rebalancing your consumption to achieve a plant-centered diet
will probably reduce your overall grocery bill" -- Mark Bittman

Food Rules: An Eater's Manual.
NY: Penguin, 2009.

In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.
NY: Penguin, 2008.

"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

  • The whiter the bread, the sooner you'll be dead
  • Don't eat cereals that change the colour of milk
  • Avoid foods Grandma wouldn't recognise
  • If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't
  • Eat when you're hungry, not when you're bored
  • Eat your colours
  • Avoid long lists of ingredients
  • Avoid ingredients you don't recognise
  • Shop at the edges of the supermarket
  • Include some pre-digested foods
  • Don't overlook oily fish
  • Only eat foods that eventually rot
  • Avoid foods that are labelled 'low-fat
  • Eat slowly
  • Drink the spinach water
  • Only eat foods cooked by humans
  • Buy smaller plates and glasses
  • Eat like the French, Japanese, Italians or Greeks
  • Stop eating before you're full
  • Don't refuel at the petrol station
  • Try not to eat on your own
  • It's not food if it has the same name in all languages
  • Treat treats as treats
  • Finally, break the rules once in a while

"Don't eat cereals that change the colour of the milk: Unlikely but brilliantly simple rules that will transform the way you eat," Adapted by Claire Cohen from Food Rules: An Eater's Manual by Michael Pollan -- MailOnline (13 January 2010)

Eat More:
  • vegetables
  • fruits
  • legumes
  • whole grains
Eat Less:
  • meat
    • rely on meat for its flavor, not its heft
  • sugar
  • junk food
  • "overrefined carbohydrates"
  • fish is probably the best choice in animal foods
  • stay away from any processed food that has more than five ingredients
