Food Rules By Michael Pollan: Rule #18 – Don’t ingest foods made in places where everyone is required to wear a surgical cap.

Simple enough.  Find foods that have been prepared in local restaurants, or even better yet, by YOU!  Most processed foods are made in high-tech facilities with machinery and product flying around (watch “How It’s Made” sometime), and this is normally an indication that this food has been heavily processed.

Go to a local farmers’ market, join a CSA, support local producers, and try to eat foods that have been prepared by human beings versus machines.
