Michael Pollan speaking

If you’re looking for a food role model, Michael Pollan is a good choice. He’s not a “diet guru” trying to hawk miracle pills, nor is he a celebrity personal training. Michael is a journalist and he’s been writing about food and nutrition for a long time, so the guy knows a lot about diet, minus all the snake oil selling.

And now, the author of four New York Times bestsellers, most notably the Omnivore’s Dilemma in 2006, is looking for your nuggets of food wisdom or advice for the next edition of his book Food Rules. You can email him.

Michael is putting out an expanded version of his 2010 book Food Rules and has put out an open call for your own “food rules.”

In an email, Michael told Sustainable Food News that any piece of advice is fair game: “Perhaps one passed down by your parents or grandparents? Or something you’ve come up with to your children – or yourself?”

So if you have something to tell Michael, email him at pollan.foodrules@gmail.com, and he’ll include the best ones in the new edition of Food Rules coming out next fall.

For more Michael, check out his sit down with “right winger” Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report, and then Michael talking about First Lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to improve our nation’s food.
