Food Lit: Michael Pollan “Food Rules”

Biggest overstatement of the year. Food seems so complicated sometimes. But it doesn’t have to be.

I can’t think of anyone who has greater insight into the current status of food and our relationship to it than Michael Pollan. You don’t have to agree with everything he presents in his various novels and essays but I have to say his work is some of the most eye opening material I chose to explore.

I am especially smitten with his book, “Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual”. He does not provide a step by step guideline but rather suggestions that are quite simple and logical. Pollan makes me think about the little things I can do to change my diet and be a more food conscience and informed consumer.  His new illustrated version of the manual is coming out soon (can I say Christmas gift?) so enjoy the above video to take a look at the new illustrations and some new rules too! While you’re at it, follow him on twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/michaelpollan) as he is posting new rules everyday.

Happy Friday! We survived the week!
