Food Rules

My own food rules are pretty similar to what Marion Nestle writes, which are never to eat a food with:

More than five ingredients (too processed)
An ingredient you can’t pronounce (ditto)
Anything artificial (ditto)
A health claim on the front (these are always about marketing, not health)
A cartoon on the package (it’s being marketed to kids)

I'm loving this chart instructing you how to eat. It's not that complicated!

  1. Nice! It's so true. Even if something claims to be "natural", if it has a paragraph of ingredients I put it back on the shelf.
