"Whole" foods are unprocessed, unrefined ... whole.

had a special order for 50lbs of organic chicken breast yesterday …
the head fruitloop was educating me on why he HAD to buy no hormones in his chicken.. thats all he was concerned about was hormones....

he paid $7lb for boneless organic breasts and didnt blink an eye..
350.00 for the chicken...

the other boneless breasts we had on sale for 1.69lb … and this chicken also had no hormones or anti-biotics.... but it did not say the word organic..... I did not offer to suggest the other chicken because ...having dealt with hundreds of organic people... that word organic is a religion to them..... I also suggested our organic free range....hormone free......wild caught Lobsters …

I think whole food and clean food are the same, but an organic designation requires that foods are raised under strict guidelines, and to me it’s unnecessary.

Like, if I grow tomatoes in my yard without use of chemicals, I consider them organic, but they really aren’t unless the seeds and soil have been certified organic.

I can buy meat from local, grass fed animals, but they are still not organic, even though they have never been fed anything with additives in it.

My point is, organic doesn’t matter to me. It just means it’s has dirt and bugs, and costs twice as much.

Whole as in whole grain. No part of the grain removed for taste or cosmetic purpose. Has nothing to do with being organic. True organic to a chemist means it contains carbon hence a diamond is organic as is crude oil. The world would be a different place if chemistry was a required subject to graduate high school and would save a lot of anxiety and dollars for those who did.
