12 Eating Tips, from Michael Pollan.

The below is excerpted via Cornerbirch.com:

“I’ve posted before about my admiration for Michael Pollan.  Here is a list of simple eating tips:

  1. Don’t eat anything our great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
  2. Avoid food products containing ingredients that are a) unfamiliar, b) unpronounceable, c) more than five in number, d) high fructose corn syrup.  avoid food products that make health claims. 
  3. Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay out of the middle. 
  4. Get out of the supermarket whenever possible. 
  5. Eat mostly plants, especially leaves. 
  6. If you have the space, buy a freezer. 
  7. Eat well-grown food from healthy soils. 
  8. Have a glass of wine with dinner. 
  9. Do all your eating at a table.
  10. Don’t get your fuel from the same place your car does. 
  11. Try not to eat alone. 
  12. Eat slowly.”
