"Food Rules: An Eater's Manual"
Love, love, love this little treasure. I devoured the entire book
in about an hour. I swear, this guy took all my thoughts and summed them up perfectly. Ha, ha. Seriously, this little book totally makes the complicated subject of what we should eat — so simple.
A few of my favorite rules from the book:
Rule 1: “Eat Food…”
Rule 20: “It’s not food if it arrived through the car window.”
Rule 60: “Treat treats as treats.” I know, I’ve said this before.
Rule 63: “Cook.” Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I’ve been sharing some of my favorites with my cooking classes between preparation. Makes for great food conversation and a little bit of laughter too. Thanks, Mr. Pollan for your simple yet very effective take on food.
I say EVERYONE should own a copy.
