New "Food Rules" by Michael Pollan
From a prominent guru of healthy eating, this is Michael Pollan's new handbook of easy-to-remember tips for what he calls "simple ways to navigate the treacherous landscape of modern food and the often-confusing science of nutrition." He wants us to eat more food rather than food products, processed, chemical and additive enhanced abominations that populate our grocery shelves and fast-food menus. His really, really short version of how to have a healthy diet goes like this: Eat real food, not too much of it, and more plants than meat. In his new guidebook, he presents 64 straightforward guidelines, each with a short explanation.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
