Food Rules

Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.

Using those seven words as his guide, Michael Pollan offers this indispensable handbook for anyone concerned about health and food. Simple, sensible and easy to use, Food Rules is a set of memorable adages or 'personal policies' for eating wisely, gathered from a wide variety of sources: mothers, grandmothers, nutritionists, anthropologists and ancient cultures among them.

Whether at the supermarket, a restaurant or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this handy, pocket-size resource is the perfect manual for anyone who would like to become more mindful of the food we eat.


Instantly makes redundant all diet books and 99 per cent of discussions around healthy eating . . . Sense, at last (praise for In Defence of Food, Daily Mail )

Pollan invites us to grab our pots and pans and cook some real food for dinner (praise for In Defence of Food, Time Out )

In more than four decades I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than these principles (Jane E. Brody The New York Times )
