Prolly something really obvious, right? Does it just mean basically cooking from scratch instead of serving up processed crap, or is it more complicated than that?

broadly, foods as close to thier natural state as possible. Where the line is seems open to interpretation.

"Can I imagine it growing?. . .tough to picture a field of marshmallows. . . A whole food has only one ingredient - itself. . .Is this product 'part' of a food or the 'whole' entity?"

My take on this:

Whole Food not: juice
Why? a fruit that has had its skin and pulped removed.

Whole Food yes: apple
Why? Grows right on the tree - I've gone apple picking and I have to say that an apple picked right off the tree is INCREDIBLE

I've kept this simple, but of course there are degrees of whole, like Clarity said.

Yeah- I always think of whole food as being in a shape- like an apple or potato- or at least in its original shape before I chop it up and cook it!

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right
