Food Rules by Michael Pollan

From Goodreads: Michael Pollan, our nation's most trusted resource for food-related issues, offers this indispensible guide for anyone concerned about health and food. Simple, sensible, and easy to use, Food Rules is a set of memorable rules for eating wisely, many drawn from a variety of ethnic or cultural traditions. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat-buffet, this handy, pocket-size resource is the perfect guide for anyone who would like to become more mindful of the food we eat. This was a "read in a hour" little book that held more than an hour's worth of wisdom. If only it also came with some willpower! I don't know that I learned anything new but it is all stuff that I need reinforcment with. Some snippets were mini-lessons on foods and science and others were just humorous reminders like this one: "If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't." I am very reliant on both fast food and prepared foods but go through spurts of trying to do better. When I need a push to do better, this book will be a good inspiration - it's a keeper! This works for the following challenges -
