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 #11: "Avoid foods you see advertised on television."
Highly advertised foods tend to be highly processed foods. The large food processors are the companies that can afford large advertising budgets. Often included are dubious claims of healthiness. Don't buy into advertising. Buy whole, fresh foods.
