Since the beginning of the year I have been on a real food lifestyle meaning that I have been eating less processed food, refined carbohydrates and sugar. It has had a positive change in my life and I’m glad that I started this lifestyle. As part of my research into eating real food, I came across this book: Food Rules An Eater’s Manual by Michael Pollan, a food journalist. This book gives 64 “rules” of how to eat for your health and which types of foods one should be eating. It’s not a science book, so it doesn’t delve into science of food, it’s simple everyday guidelines to get you on the right track.
I read this book in 1 sitting, it’s a simple read which is thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny. I’ve taken a few of my favourite guidelines from the book that I have been trying to incorporate into my life:
In most cases, the number of ingredients are an indicator of the amount of processing that a food had undergone. More ingredients…more processing.
Do you have monosodium glutamate in your cupboard?
Doth protest too much!
Eish san’! This one neh.
We all know that filling stations are not the best places to get healthy food, which is why when I went on a roadtrip to Cape Town, I packed my own healthy snacks from home.
hahahahah! I laughed out loud at this one – I just pictured myself at the Chicken Licken drive thru.
