Food Rules #16 & #17

#16 Boy your snacks at the farmers' market.

You'll find yourself snacking on fresh fruits and nuts-real food-rather than chips and sweets. -Michael Pollan, Food Rules

#17 Eat only foods that have been cooked by humans.

If you're going to let others cook for you, you're much better off if they are other humans, rather than corporations. In general, corporations cook with too much salt, fat, and sugar, as well as with preservatives, colorings, and other biological novelties. They also aim for immortality in their food products. Note: While it is true that professional chefs are generally humans, they often cook with large amounts of salt, fat, and sugar too, so treat restaurant meals as special occasions. -Michael Pollan, Food Rules
