A great way to start off the new year is to pick up Michael Pollan's latest book, Food Rules: An Eater's Manual ($7). Food Rules contains 64 rules to live by when it comes to eating, like rule number 19: If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't.
Each rule goes back to Pollan's basic tenet, "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants," and is humorous, simple, and memorable. Pollan is a must read if you're interested in changing your dietary habits, and Food Rules is a quick and accessible peek into the food guru's larger manifesto. Recently, he shared a few of his rules with The Huffington Post — give them a look before you sit down to your next meal.
