I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do! The entire whole foods diet plan is wonderfully delicious.
Have you ever wished you could prepare a week's worth of dinners at once?
That is the great thing about this diet plan!
It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to prepare the “Basic Vegetable Soup” recipe.
To keep it fresh, I put 2 cups of the soup in individual containers and stacked them up in the freezer, thawing them out as needed. (According to Good Housekeeping, they suggest that you put 3 cups of soup per container to freeze; I'm guess so you would have extra if you needed it between meals.)
Each day, dinner taste completely different just by adding a few ingredients, making it a unique soup.
Here are some soups you can expect to see;
- Thai Shrimp Soup
- Mexican Chicken Soup
- Southwest Chili
- Greek Fish Stew
- Red Beans & Rice Stew
I would love to hear your opinions about this diet.

Day 3 – Whole Foods Diet Plan
Very articulate post. One of my favorite easy snacks in the world is a combo of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil. Heaven! It’s a healthy trio. I had a quick question: Whether processed tomato products like tomato sauce or marinara sauce provide the same benefits, or should we make sure we get plenty of fresh tomatoes ?
Thanks for your feedback! I really love this mixture of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil! It was a first for me and that “Roasted Garlic Hummus” I found at Aldi’s went perfect with this Caprese salad mix on a whole wheat pita.
I’m so happy to know you feel the same.
I have never been very fond of hummus before I discovered the garlic flavor!
As for your question, tomatoes are a healthy option but cooked or processed tomatoes double the effect of lycopene, therefore homemade marinara sauce, tomato juice, and salsa makes them even more beneficial for our health.
If you like salsa, you may love my homemade best salsa from fresh tomatoes recipe.
I hope this helps answer your question.
Please let me know if I can answer any more.
I look forward to hearing back from you in the near future.
Best of health,
Roasted garlic hummus is a simple appetizer that is packed with flavor and when it comes to Caprese salad it is probably hands down, most favorite, go-to salads…ever. Thanks for you revert on my question i would rather stick with homemade marinara sauce, tomato juice, I was not knowing processed tomatoes double the effect of lycopene ~ This is valuable information. Looking forward to read more informative post.
Garlic Hummus has to be the best I ever tried. In fact, I haven’t been interested in trying any of the other flavors. 🙂
I love homemade marinara sauce and fresh “warm” tomato juice. You have great taste!
Thanks again for your feedback and interest in what I provide in my content.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
Best of health,
