About a year ago, I started buying all my food from Wholefoods and Traders Joe's.

I generally buy Organic and look for the USDA organic sticker. Is this the best I can be doing? Is food from wholefoods and trader joe truly organic?

Should I be looking for something else? Money is not an issue, I just want the healthiest food out there.

Good for you.
Now, do your research.
Learn what the USDA organic labels really mean, because since the federal government standardized the organic food industry the varying degrees of what is organic leads to a lot of deceitful labeling.
Same applies for meat, fish, & poultry.
Be aware of fake organic foods such as honey. Honeybees can travel long distances so you can't control where they gather pollen. No sense paying more for something that doesn't exist.
Shop around, no point paying anymore for organic food than you have to.

I think the key is buying WHOLE foods. Look at the labels. Anything that has anything besides the brown rice*, fish*, meat* is not "whole".
