  • Just as writer Michael Pollan has his "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," Daniel Greenblatt has a meal plan for customers at his Greenleaf Restaurant.
    "They would eat healthier if they ate family-style."
    Start with a big salad for the whole family to share, says Greenblatt. Select entrees with more vegetables, maybe a stir-fry with some protein, the pasta primavera or a veggie-topped pizza, and let everyone take a portion.
    Then enjoy a bit of "comfort food" — fish and chips or breaded chicken strips — but distribute the fried stuff around the table. No one needs an entire order of french fries, he adds.
    "I want people to be able to eat whatever they want," says Greenblatt.
