What is a Whole Foods Diet?
The foundation to a whole foods diet is to choose unrefined foods packaged in their most natural and nutrient-rich state. So you pick corn instead of corn flakes or steel cut oats instead of processed bar made with oats. Essentially, in a whole foods diet you select the foods that are unadulterated, all-natural, and rich in natural nutrients just as they come from nature. Yes – directly from the plant or high-quality animal foods (such as grass-fed beef).
In a whole foods diet, the majority of your calories will come from plant-based unrefined foods (plenty of vegetables, fruits, unrefined whole grains, beans, seeds, nuts, legumes, etc.) But don’t worry – we don’t make you count anything.
