What is a "processed ingredient"? More to the point, what ISN'T? A piece of meat is cut. Vegetables are cut from their roots. Wheat is milled...

Whole foods. Meat/fish/poultry, potatoes/rice, vegetables/fruit, nuts, beans, etc. Harvesting isn't processing.

But there are still many recipes that mix those things together nicely.

This thread reminds me, I haven't made pepper steak in years and I love it!

You can make a delicious roast on the stovetop and it is just meat and lots of great veggies and herbs.

Good question and something I'm trying to figure out.

I think a whole, plain potato is pretty much in it's natural state whereas rice has been through some sort of "processing." Peeled veggies are still all natural, but veggies coated in preservatives or a brine would not be. A cut piece of raw meat is natural as long as nothing (preservatives, salt, etc.) has been added to it.

I'm still in the process of trying to figure out what constitutes a strictly all natural food. Or at least what is natural enough to be considered "healthy."

If nothing has happened to the food to alter its composition, it's whole.

I disagree about rice being processed. Nothing is added to it.

It's just dehusked, like nuts and seeds are deshelled.

You can't eliminate all grains. That wouldn't be healthy.
