A whole foods diet is one that is made up of foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. Foods are minimally processed and there is an emphasis on eating fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, tubers, legumes, lean animal proteins and plant proteins, and low-fat dairy.

This is a simple method of eating and one that is high in nutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. We've gathered up some of our favorite recipes that showcase these whole foods throughout the day!
