Food Rules Friday

Second installment of the weekly feature, "Food Rules Friday," featuring a rule from Michael Pollan's newest book, "Food Rules - An Eater's Manual." Michael Pollan is an acclaimed author and whole food/heathy eating advocate. He is the author of the best selling "In Defense of Food" and "The Omnivore's Dillemma."
Rule #2: "Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food."

Pollan further describes the "thousands of foodish products in the supermarket."  You've seen them.  Overly processed , packaged in plastic, bearing ingredient labels that reveal them to be full of chemical additives, corn and soy derivatives, added salts and sugars, all designed to to get us to buy and eat way more of them than is healthy.
