Food Rules Friday
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 #13: "Eat only foods that will eventually rot."
Using this principle, we avoid overly processed foods that are loaded with chemical preservatives. Often, these processed foods have certain important nutrients removed, nutrients that may allow the food to decay more quickly. Fresh, whole food, eaten within a reasonable time, needs no alteration.
