I like the taste better.
When I go out to eat I am disappointed and can make the same thing tastier at home.

...because the list of ingredients in processed food is scary! I like what Michael Pollen says in his book "Food Rules". Whole food is simple, looks pretty, tastes really really good, and saves time in the grocery store - just working the outer aisles:)

I eat real food because I think it has all sorts of "micro-nutritents" and things our body needs. Probably things we don't even understand yet.

But eating processed food, purified, like wheat flour, without the outer shell, ... who knows what we are missing. I don't eat wheat, but if I did it would be the full grain.

I am a type-2 diabetic, so things that digest more slowly are better for my blood sugar, and whole foods digest slower.

I eat whole foods because they are not pre-chewed in a factory, so being whole slows digestion down and is better for my blood sugar, and because I think they have many biologically active molecules that we don't understand, that are essential for good health.

I ask myself the question: Is this food going to maintain or improve my health? For me, the labels on processed foods are usually scary. .

but I usually get to say YES! to that question if it is a whole food, very close to the source plant or animal (once in a while).

I eat whole foods because once you process anything you make it unhealthy. (or less healthy)

Of course I eat some processed foods occasionally: 100% whole wheat bread, tofu, almond milk, Trader Joe's Bran Flakes, Noodles, etc. But I don't live my life out of a box. I live out of the produce section and down the bean aisle and in the frozen foods veggie aisle and that is about it.
