Rules to eat by: when in doubt sauté with garlic

There is no shortage of rules about eating. From the Bible (do not eat that apple) to Michael Pollen (Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants); from Scarsdale to South Beach; from kosher to Special K, the list of diet restrictions and advice goes on and on. And, while I refuse to  adhere to any  single regimen (I’ve always had trouble with rules), I love to read about them. Especially when they come in top 10 lists like this: 10 Tips for a Healthy Diet.

Tip number 7 makes me think someone has been poking around in our crisper drawer, where nothing is very crisp: “…often they [vegetables] sit around in your fridge and go bad because you don’t know what to do with them. In a pinch, just chop them up and sauté them with olive oil, garlic, and salt. This works for everything…”  It’s good advice; everything is better with garlic.

One thought on “Rules to eat by: when in doubt sauté with garlic

  1. Fun read!
    I’m a fan of #10. I am shocked to see how much of of our food is cubic, brightly coloured and frankly…old. I wonder if the box is supposed to make up for the pale, nutritionally void contents?
