In our last +1, we explored the relationship between our food rotting and us rotting. Recall: The longer the shelf life of the food we eat, the shorter our lives will be!
That wisdom was from Michael Pollan’sFood Rules.
In fact, it’s Rule #13:“Eatonly foods that will eventually rot.”
Today we’re going to talk about another Food Rule.
Food Rule #57 to be precise.
“Don’t get your fuel from the same place your car does.”
Here’s how Pollan puts it:“Americangas stations now make more money inside selling food(andcigarettes) than they do outside selling gasoline. But consider what kind of food this is: Except perhaps for the milk and water, it’s all highly processed, imperishable snack foods and extravagantly sweetened soft drinks in hefty twenty-ounce bottles. Gas stations have become‘processedcorn stations’: ethanol outside for your car and high-fructose corn syrup inside for you. Don’t eat there.”
