Eat Food.

How hard should it be to find and eat real food? Apparently, it's pretty difficult because that's the first rule in Michael Pollan's Food Rules. Most of the foods I had been eating fell into the category of "edible food-like substances." Until I realized that these foods were making me sick, I never thought much of it.

Re-Learning How to Eat

About a week or so after watching Food, Inc I came across an interview with Michael Pollan on tv. He was making the rounds to promote his new book Food Rules.

I've heard of Michael Pollan before, but I never read any of his books. I came to know his name through Food, Inc. While watching his interview with Jon Stewart, I kind of felt like it was useful information, but common sense.

The inspiration!

So this is something I've been working on for a few months in my own personal life. My friends are interested, but I don't think they want me talking about it constantly like I currently do. I'm sure having this as an outlet will help!

I've wanted to see Food Inc ever since it came out, but I never got around to it. When it came out, I put it on my Netflix, but since my Netflix has close to 200 movies on it, it wasn't coming anytime soon. Luckily, I came up with the brilliant idea of giving it to my father for Christmas. I knew he would want to see it, and I would be there. Perfect.
