Food – thoughts of wisdom

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”  I love this saying by Michael Pollan, an author, journalist, activist and professor of journalism. The New York Times book review describes him as a “Liberal foodie intellectual”.

Also by Michael Pollan are these great quotes – and SO true:

“Place a bouquet of flowers on the table and everything will taste twice as good.”

“If you are not hungry enough to eat an apple you are probably not hungry.”

And “When we eat real food we don’t need rules” –  he takes the words right out of my mouth! I could not agree more! Real authentic home cooked, honest food made with real ingredients and love, we can’t go wrong! Add, cooking food together, and enjoying it around the table with the people we love. Enjoy food, share it, feel it, smell it, eat it mindfully! (quote: from me!)

Michael Pollan’s book “Food Rules” is out as an illustrated edition. The most wonderful illustrations by Maira Kalman!

Here is a little youtube I would like to share with you!

Pollan is also the author of several mind blowing, wonderful, thought provoking and eye-opening books about the food we eat, check these out:

Food Rules

In Defense of Food

The Omnivores Dilemma

These are just great! Enjoy!
