"Tis also the season to remind ourselves of Michael Pollan's rules for food.

FOOD SHOPPING RULES FROM MICHAEL POLLAN

1.Don’t buy anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. Like anything orange that isn’t salmon, a carrot or an orange 2.Avoid products containing ingredients that cannot be found in an ordinary pantry. Even better, avoid anything that contains more than five ingredients. Better still, if you can’t pronounce most of the ingredients, you don’t want to eat it. 3.Don’t buy anything that list sugar in its first three ingredients. And NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP! Not even a little. 4.Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay away from the middle-that’s where most processed food is shelved. 5.If it came from a plant, buy it (and eat a lot of it). If it was made in a plant, pass it by. 6.If it says lite, low-fat or non-fat on the package, put it down. You’ll be more satisfied if you eat a little bit of the real thing. 7.Avoid food that is pretending to be something it is not. This includes soy-based mock meats. 8.Food making health claims on the package is not food you want to buy. Don’t take the silence of the yams as a sign they have nothing valuable to say about your health. 9.Avoid food that is advertised on television. And remember, if it is delivered through the window of a car, it is not food. 10.Get out of the supermarket. Look for farmer’s markets for the majority of your food and snacks. If you follow these rules, you will purchasing and eating real, whole food most of the time-and that’s the simple way to a healthy diet.
