Michael Polan is the guru of food. Real food. And he advocates for the eating of real food. His guiding mantra is “eat food”. By that he means real food; food that is recognizable as having come from a plants. His plants have not been genetically anythinged: they have not been adulterated. Avoid factory food that is more like the product of a chemistry set than the product of a farm. Don’t eat any food that comes with a list of ingredients, especially with more than five items in that list. Don’t eat any food with ingredients you can’t pronounce.
Avoid products with high-fructose sugars and avoid refined grains.
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Sage advice.
