"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
Many of the thoughts and advisory on food as propounded by Micheal Pollan (Food Rules) is evocative to me of ancient Indian wisdom. In part due to all things to do with food that stem from a fairly traditional south Indian upbringing and later, partly due to my training as yoga teacher that places much emphasis on 'Ahaar'.
Pollan's food rules presented here in the NYT and elsewhere in a contemporary and attrative manner makes it so much more accesible and endearing to modern readers.
If you like it, then I have linked to more of his writings here.
