What Food Rules Do You Live By?

Michael Pollan is asking for your food rules:

Michael Pollan Wants Your Food Rules, NYTs Well Blog, March 9, 2009

"Will you send me a food rule you try to live by? Something perhaps passed down by your parents or grandparents? Or something you’ve come up with to tell your children – or yourself?

I will post your suggestions on my Web site and plan to include the best in a collection of food rules I’m now compiling. Thanks in advance for your contribution."
Over 500 comments there and it was only posted a few hours ago.
(My grandmother always said: "Eat your roughage!")

Huh. My mother said that the crusts of white bread were good for us. I believed it at the time...

I was told that bread crusts would put hair on my chest. They did but nobody said a thing about the back.

Water is food too.

Yeah, my Dad said that about bread crusts to my brothers too (hair on the chest)--it did make me rethink my mother's advice.
