Inspired by and in honor of Michael Pollan's new book, Food Rules, I decided to take a week on my blog and show you a week's worth of meals at our house. Food Rules is what it says, a list of rules to help you eat a cleaner, more nourishing diet and gives you a better way to look at food than just a substance to fill your stomach. Much of the information in Pollan's new book is regurgitated from In Defense of Food, but in a clearer, more concise format.
Tomato-Rice Soup with Cheese from The Complete Tassajara Cookbook
1 1/3 cup flour (I used spelt)
2/3 cup corn meal
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar or honey
2 med-lrg sized carrots, grated (or about 1 1/2 cups grated)
3/4 cup milk (or milk sub)
1/4 cup olive oil
Mix dry ingredients in bowl then add wet ingredients. Stir until just mixed. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin container. Bake at 350 for 18-20 min or until center of muffin is set.
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. ~ Michael Pollan
