#606 - Food Rules by Michael Pollan

 One more book (#3) read on my goal to read 24 books this year.

Fast read.
Great (obvious) advice!

Here are some of my favorite rules and/or ones I need to work on:

#2 - Don't eat anything your great grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.
#13 - Eat only foods that will eventually rot.
#19 - If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't.
#39 - Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.
 #41 - Eat more like the French.   Or the Japanese.  Or the Italians.  Or the Greeks.
#46 - Stop eating before you are full.  ie; "leave the table a little bit hungry."
#50 - "The banquet is in the first bite."

Here are the books I have read this year:

#1 - A Fortunate Life
#2 - Outliers
#3 - Food Rules
a few more I need to blog about...some really good ones.
