Food Rules Friday
Rule #3: "Avoid eating food products containing ingredients that no ordinary human would keep in the pantry."
Do you keep Calcium Propionate in your pantry? I dont!
Pollan's point in Rule 3 is that processed foods contain a variety of chemicals that are added to extend shelf life, make the food taste better than it is, and to make you eat more of it.
Read the labels on packaged foods. See the list of additives that many of them contain. Foods prepared in the home from fresh natural ingredients are much healthier!
