Never be afraid to get dirty, but be sufficiently sure-footed to avoid the abyss of contamination.

Food Rules

Michael Pollan’s dedication summarizes the book well:

who always knew butter was better for you

than margarine

It’s not that Food Rules needs any summarizing: ten minutes is enough to move from cover to cover. The book covers Pollan’s philosophy on food in 64 simple rules. The first one?

Eat food.

The last one?

Break the rules once in a while.

I’ll let you enjoy reading the rest.
