Food Rules: An Eater's Manual

Author:  Michael Pollan
Year: 2009
Publisher: Penguin Books
Pages: 140

Goodreads Synopsis:
Eating doesn't have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings a welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with the clarity, concision and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan's trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation. It's an easy-to-use guide that draws from a variety of traditions, suggesting how different cultures through the ages have arrived at the same enduring wisdom about food. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, "What should I eat?"

I found this to be an incredibly simple guidebook as to what to eat. I think the only thing keeping me back from being able to follow these rules is my own memory failure. Truthfully, though, Pollan breaks things down so simply and makes it all so common sense that I feel like I should be able to follow these rules just by thinking when I shop.
