Commitment #37

“I will read Food Rules by Michael Pollan.”

Margaret and I have gotten into the habit of sharing food and farming information almost every morning. These daily chats fill me with inspiration; I can’t wait to harvest my first meal! One morning this week, Margaret handed me her recently purchased copy of Michael Pollan’s new book, Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual. It’s a quick little read — 140 single-sided pages covering 64 “food rules” that answer these three questions: What should I eat? What kind of food should I eat? How should I eat? My favorite rule, so far. . .

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. Imagine your great-grandmother (or grandmother, depending on your age) at your side as you roll down the aisles of the supermarket. You’re standing together in front of the dairy case. She picks up a package of Go-GURT Portable Yogurt tubes—and hasn’t a clue what this plastic cylinder of colored flavored gel could possibly be. Is it a food or is it toothpaste?” Food Rules by Michael Pollan
