Michael Pollan’s new book, Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, is a breeze to read. The author himself says it will take you about an hour to, ahem, digest his 64 practical, even folksy rules – gleaned from doctors, scientists, chefs and readers – to eat better. Here are a few samples:
#11 – Avoid foods you see advertised on television.
#19 – If it came from a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don’t.
#36 – Don’t eat breakfast cereals that change the color of your milk.
