My favorite nutrition quotes: what do you think?

I would like to share with you some of my favorite Michael Pollan quotes:

  • “eat sweet foods as you find them in nature”
  • “Don’t eat breakfast cereals that change the color of your milk.”
  • “avoid foods that have some form of sugar (or sweetener) listed among the top three ingredients”
  • “Avoid food products containing ingredients that a third-grader cannot pronounce”
  • “Eat only foods that will eventually rot”
  • “If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t”

Reply to this post and tell me what these mean to you.  Also, tell us how you can incorporate these simple quotes into your life.
