Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual
By Michael Pollan
112 Pages. Penguin. $11.00.

In his latest book, Michael Pollan regulates: “If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t.” That’s commandment number 19 of 64, and important advice for any vegetarian who might be tempted to gorge on Sour Patch Kids. A departure from Pollan’s earlier genre of literary journalism, this book locates itself squarely in the “how-to” camp. Food Rules works well for the recipe-weary. Rather than propose specific dishes, it offers general guidelines on how to shop, eat healthily, enjoy food more, and limit your diet’s environmental impact, all without freaking out about nutrients.
