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)

Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating.
NY: Simon & Schuster, 2009.

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

Eat Your Heart Out: Why the Food Business is Bad for the Planet and Your Health. London: Penguin Books, 2008.

Not on the Label: What Really Goes into The Food on Your Plate, Revised Edition. London: Penguin Books, 2013.

"How then should we shop and eat? My efforts, not always sucessful, are still focused where they were four years ago—organically, more locally, more seasonally, more directly from producers and independent retailers, more fair trade, less meat and animal produce, more wholegrains, pulses, fresh fruits and vegetables, few highly processed foods, nothing that claims to be a new or techno food, nothing highly packaged. Follow these principles and by and large you will find you are buying less from production that damages the environment or threatens ecosystems and you are less likely to be eating the fruits of exploited labour. You will also be supporting the sort of small-scale domestic production that will be vital to our future security. It requires effort, and thoug it is not fashionable to sa it, it requires giving up things we like. See it as a first urgent step in a new political engagement." -- Eat Your Heart Out, p. 305.
