Figuring out what to eat can be very confusing today with all the different dietary theories and products available to us.  Often what was healthy for us a year ago is now deemed unhealthy for one reason or another.  Labels on food in supermarkets are filled with unfamiliar words and health claims.  Phrases like “fat-free”, “high in fiber”, “all natural”, and “lowers cholesterol” all make a product sound like it must be good for us, but that isn’t always the case.  People ask me all the time for suggestions on what they should eat.  The best answer is real food.  But the world of food has changed so much over the years that a lot of us don’t know what real food is anymore.  Fortunately Michael Pollen has written the book “Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual”.  This is a small paperback book with 64 rules designed to help us navigate what to eat.  It is an easy read and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a guidance in determining what to eat.
