*WHOLE FOODS include plenty of fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, whole grains (oats, quinoa, millet, brown rice, barley), unsalted/unflavored nuts and seeds, olive oil, grape seed oil, coconut oil, vinegar (balsamic, red wine, apple cider to name a few), plenty of herbs/spices, lean proteins (includes organic tofu, organic chicken, shrimp, tilapia, salmon), chia, flax to name some basic staple items I like to have.
