Real Food with Haiku

Food Haiku (in the style of Michael Pollan from his book: In Defense of Food.
Not traditional Haiku, but a pattern that works.

Eat food.
Not too much.
Mostly plants.

I am inspired by his premise and am ready to take it up a notch in our own eating/cooking at home. More plants, less meat. More organic, more local. Some of the most interesting reading I found about Mr. Pollan was on a blog where he was the guest writer. That's where I found the other examples of Food Haiku. Here's mine:

Green Peas.
Shelled by hand.
Sweet treat.

I have to get his book and read more....
