Any fool can make something complicated. It takes a genius to make it simple." - Woody Guthrie

A few years back I borrowed a book from my local library called 'Food Rules' written by Michael Pollan. Michael is described by some as an author activist, which for a job title sounds pretty cool to me. I am all for simplicity so 'Food Rules' appealed to my way of thinking. In particular, I loved the rule 'don't eat anything your great grandmother wouldn't recognise as food'. He also suggests we 'don't get our fuel from the same place as our car', which seems pretty sensible advice when you consider the type of food available from petrol stations. Recently I have been following the 'get out of the supermarket whenever possible' rule but I score a big fail on 'do all your eating at a table'. Certainly not at home but at work bolting down lunch at my desk has become a habit that I need to break. If you have not yet had the opportunity to read this book and fancy a common-sense, humorous and thought provoking read you could do worse than Food Rules.
