I agree sticking with the outer boarder of the store. For frozen, it depends on what you are getting. I buy frozen fruit and just make sure that there are no additives.
Also buy in season fruits and veggies. You can freeze them yourself. I will do this a lot in the summer when the fruit and veggies are at peak. That way during the winter I still have yummy fresh fruit and don't have to spend a lot.
As for meat (I am vegan, but just changed over), I used to buy 100% green fed. Make sure to ask the question though. Whole foods only has one little area that is considered 100%. They may have things listed as grass fed beef or chicken, but the last few weeks of the animals life the farmer may feed them grains. These grains cause the fat in the meat and are also full of the stuff you don't want.
I have a few places on line that i will buy my meat from, but my farmers market has some as well that I trust.
I don't buy any processed or boxed foods, I don't use refined sugar or flour. I don't do whole grains or dairy. But those are my choices and work well for me.
You need to really find what works for you.
