I just spent a week with my daughter in Utah who only eats whole organic foods. I eat so healthy visiting her I generally lose weight on vacation. ... How cool is that? I always get inspired to try to do better for myself nutritionally. Whole foods are eaten as they are created - naturally, intact with all their vitamins, minerals and nutrients; processed foods are altered in some way from their natural state with only bits of the natural food remaining after refinement and processing. This processing removes key nutrients, minerals and anti-oxidants from the food and then often adds in not so healthy ingredients.
