This is one of my favourite books about eating well. Michael Pollan is an award winning American journalist and author with numerous accolades to his name including being listed as one of the world’s 100 most influential people by TIME magazine in 2010. Pollan is a Professor at Harvard and at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. In addition to teaching, he lectures on food, agriculture, health and the environment.
In Food Rules Pollan has distilled his extensive research down into 83 simple, practical rules like: “Don’t ingest food made in places where everyone is required to wear a surgical cap.” The essence of Pollan’s message is:
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
