So all beans are whole foods but fruit are not because you can make them into other things? I always considered an apple a whole food because it had nothing added to it. You live you learn.
Watch your thoughts; they become your words. Watch your words; they become your actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. Anon
Some foods can be broken down and separated. An apple can be peeled, or pureed, or juiced. A kernel of wheat can be milled, and de-germed, and sifted, and bleached.
There's not much that you can do to a pinto bean to separate out the components.
