So, what can I eat in a whole food diet, you ask? Whole foods such as, a lot of vegetables and fruits, legumes, beans, chickpeas and grains. I will give you a list of foods that I am going to avoid and a list of foods that I will be adding to my diet. I read a lot of nutrition books but my favorite so far is Eat To Live by Joel Fuhrman. I am very picky when it comes to health, I chose this diet after much research.
