|I’m currently re-reading Michael Pollan’s interesting and useful little book “Food Rules“.
In a recent departure lounge stopover, and a flight from Melbourne to Sydney, I read it cover to cover in an hour. The book is full of common sense, an ingredient that is fast disappearing in today’s world.
Mr Pollan states: “Four thousands of years, humans have eaten well and stayed healthy without nutritional scientists or even knowing what an antioxidant is. So which of the modern world’s hundreds of rules do we actually need?”
The book attempts to answer that by collecting wisdom, science and common sense from around the world, and I think it succeeds admirably. I’ll be publishing excerpts in some upcoming blogs. Stay tuned.
