Dried Fruit from Naturally Good Food

What do we mean by organic wholefood? - a guide

Organic Wholefood Guide

The majority of our wholefoods are available as organic food. Wholefoods are the 'whole' of the food, packed with goodness: 'food as nature intended'. Eating the whole of the food is considered to be the basis for a good diet. The more we learn about how our bodies work, the more the evidence points to eating all of the food (that is, the wholefood) for the best possible diet. It is, of course, how we originally developed.

In addition to this guide to wholefoods, we have a guide to each type of organic wholefood. Just follow the links below.


Organic dried fruit in a wholefood diet

Dried fruit: organic dried fruit does not contain sulphur dioxide as a preservative, so the fruit is a more mellow, natural colour, rather than 'day-glo' yellow! Dried fruit is only minimally less nutritious than fresh fruit (some vitamin D is lost by drying), and is a good way to add fibre and sugar to your diet when fresh is not available. Dried fruit is excellent for commited organic wholefood eaters.

Organic Nuts are an important ingredient in a wholefood diet giving many essential minerals and fibre

Nuts: eating nuts as part of a wholefood diet will provide you with many of the essential trace elements required for health. Nuts are good for a vegetarian diet, as they contain protein and are a fine source of energy, with lots of calories. Nuts are high in unsaturated fat, which helps maintain a healthy heart and are an important element in an organic wholefood diet.

Organic seeds are not only great to eat they are highly versatile and are easy to add to many meals, adding a wholefood twist

Seedsseeds are a great source of minerals, and are also high in polyunsaturated fats and calories. For protein, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds are best. For some smaller seeds, such as sesame, it can be a good idea to give them a quick blast (5 seconds) in a food processor - otherwise they can just pass straight through. For those with a busy lifestyle wanting an organic wholefood diet, seeds are a good choice for high-value nutritional snacks.

wholemeal rice great with all curries and don't forget rice pudding

Rice: eating wholegrain rice is not only tastier, but has many nutritional benefits, and can be very important if you are following a wholefood diet. Rice is also great value to buy by the sack, as it keeps well and is easily stored. Don't forget, as with most wholefoods, 'brown is best' - that is, eating the whole grain.

 

whole grains should be a key element in your diet

Grains: whole grains should form an important part of your diet. In our grains section, you will find the full complement of whole grains for a wholefood diet. Whole grain contains three elements: bran, germ and endosperm. Each part contains key components: the bran has fibre and the germ has vitamins and minerals. Refining the grain removes the bran and the germ, thus losing fibre, vitamins and minerals, while eating the whole grain keeps these valuable components. So much research now points to the importance of eating wholegrains as part of your diet - they are a vital part of your organic wholefood regime.

 

 

pulses a major protein component of your diet Pulses: dried pulses are traditionally what many people think of when they talk of an organic wholefood diet. They are very important: protein in  a wholefood diet can easily come from eating pulses, and these also count as one of your 'five a day' vegetables. Pulses are rich in protein, carbohydrate and fibre, and low in fat. You simply soak your pulses overnight and then they are ready for use. One major advantage of dried pulses is that they store very well if kept in a dry, air-tight container away from light. And while not forgetting to eat plenty of them, remember that modern wholefood diets can be very varied, so do try some other organic wholefoods as well. 
Organic lentils the heart of wholefood diet Lentils/split peas: we could put our lentils and split peas section in with the rest of the pulses, but they are so good, we thought a category of their own was appropriate. If you are vegetarian, lentils are one of your best sources of iron, as well as being a great provider of protein. Health magazine has selected lentils as one of the five most healthy foods. For many, lentils represent a key part of an organic wholefood diet, due to their versatility and ease of storage.
Organic flakes a good base for home made porridge or muesli

Flakes: organic wholefood flakes can form a good base if you want to make your own porridge or muesli. If you start with the basic flakes, you know exactly what you are eating. In addition, you can add flakes to soups, stews and casseroles.


Cacao Beans Booja Booja - 50g

Superfoods: most 'superfoods' are fresh, but we've got cacao beans and cacoa nibs listed too.
   

Organic wholefood benefits

The more research that is done, the clearer it becomes that basic, unprocessed, unrefined foods are what we are designed to eat. There is universal agreement that a wholefood diet is a good diet. A wholefood diet includes:

 

  • Lots of high fibre foods, such as fruit, vegetable, pulses, whole grains, nuts and seeds. For an organic wholefood diet, you will need a good source of organic fresh fruit and veg, as well as organic whole grains and organic nuts.
  • A wide variety of foods: make sure your wholefood diet includes lots of different foods. Eating seasonally is one way to eat different food.
  • Eating the whole part of the food. A diet including whole grain foods is associated with a significantly lower risk of heart disease.
  • Obtaining your vitamins and minerals from foods, rather than supplements, which are not effective substitutes for a healthy diet. Foods provide the 'synergy' that allows many nutrients to work together effectively. Eating a wholefood diet, quite simply, gives you all the food.
  • Avoiding many of things that are added to food, such as sugar, sodium, flavourings, artificial colours and other additives. If you choose the organic wholefood option, you can be sure of what you are eating.
  • Retention of as much of the natural nutrients as possible. In processing a food, many of the important nutritional benefits are lost, while wholefoods retain these. Crucially, in an organic environment, you will get as natural a wholefood as possible - organic wholefoods offer processing at its minimum.

 

A major characteristic of wholefoods is that they are easily digested, providing all the basic nutrients the body needs. In August 2006 a major New Scientist review article concluded: 'Just because a food with a certain compound in it is beneficial to health, it does not mean a pill with the same compound in is'. In essence, we don't yet know exactly how the body works, but the indications are that it is more complex than we once thought. Eating the whole food gives many benefits that are not enjoyed by eating only part of the food, or taking a supplement.

 
Wholefoods are always better, both in nutritional value and taste, than processed foods; combining wholefoods and organic gives the best of everything.

 

Wholefoods and diabetes 

Studies in the US by Harvard University have suggested that replacing white rice with wholemeal brown rice will reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. While eating large quantities of white rice increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, eating wholegrain brown rice lowers it. The study suggested that replacing white rice with wholefoods, including brown rice, brown pasta, wholemeal bread and oats could cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 16%.

 

Wholefoods or wholegrain foods, release their energy slowly. In contrast, white rice, which has had all the bran and some of the germ removed during milling, has a higher glycaemic index (GI). GI is a measure of how much a food raises blood sugar levels.

  

Diabetes UK advises replacing some of the meat in a stew or casserole with pulses and lentils. In terms of fruit, Diabetes UK advises: 'People with diabetes can eat any kind of fruit - fresh, tinned, frozen or dried. It makes a good low-calorie snack or dessert. Try adding fruit to your cereal to help meet the target of at least 5 fruit and veg a day.'

 

The overall message is clear: a wholefood diet is best. If you follow an organic wholefood diet, then you are doing the best for yourself and the best for the environment.

 

Wholefoods and weight control

Dutch researchers, in a study involving almost 90,000 Europeans, discovered that a high-fibre diet, namely cereal fibre, correlated to a reduced body weight and a trimmer waistline. Beware, however: high-fibre snack bars are not so good for you, as they tend to have a high sodium content and are also likely to be higher in calories.

Wholefood hints and tips

Below you will find a few hints and tips on organic wholefoods that we have picked up over the years. If you have any other hints you would like to share, please let us know.

  • Move to wholefoods gradually and do not be too rigid with your diet.
  • Eat more plant foods, nuts, grains, legumes and seeds.
  • Add some pumpkin, sesame or sunflower seeds to a salad - try toasting them for a little extra zing.
  • Start by sneaking some wholefoods into your family diet.
  • Sprinkle nuts, seeds and dried fruit over your morning cereal: easy to do and it will give you that extra bit of energy mid-morning.
  • Where possible, choose food with 100% whole grain.
  • Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Think in terms of 'colours' to try to get three different coloured vegetables at each meal. Add beans to your meals and snacks: wholefoods come in all shapes and sizes.
  • Eat less 'convenience' and processed foods, which often have added fat, sugar, salt and additives. Eating wholefoods helps your cooking skills and can save you money. With the right choices, switching your diet to an organic wholefood diet can be cheaper.
  • Don’t forget what you drink - try switching to water, mineral water, green tea, fresh fruit juice or a soya milk.   
  • When you go out, try all the exotic vegetarian dishes. Remember that Japanese, Korean or Thai Asian restaurants often offer a healthy option. If you can, try to find an organic wholefood restaurant.
  • Avoid frying - bake, poach, steam, stir-fry or perhaps saute instead, or try some of your wholefoods raw.
  • Don’t over-cook your food, let your organic wholefoods speak for themselves.
  • Read the ingredients list on prepared food: don’t simply be convinced by a label saying 'natural' or 'organic'.
  • Think in terms of your main dish as being whole grains, vegetables and beans (organic and wholefood), with only a moderate amount of meat.
  • Food should look good! Wholefoods generally look fresh and colourful - try to eat lots of colours, but not colourings.
  • Watch out on the web for wholefood cooking demonstrations.
  • If you are a keen runner, cyclist or hill-walker, then go wholegrain: swap white pasta and bread for healthier brown, wholegrain versions. The slower energy release will be a clear advantage.
  • If you're travelling on a long trip, take some wholefood snacks with you. You then won't be tempted to eat junk and can also save a few pennies.
  • Adding some pulses to a vegetable soup will increase the protein level.
  • If you are thinking of switching to an organic wholefood diet, you need to take the family with you - don't just try to impose a new healthy regime. Try a family meeting to discuss a change of diet and see if you can get some support from within the family group. When it comes down to it, most of us want to be healthy and know that a basis for this is a healthy wholefood diet.
  • Children's tastes are different to those of adults: adults may enjoy really spicy bean dishes, but these may not be suitable for children, so be sensible and ask the kids what they enjoy. Organic bean and other wholefood dishes can be easily amended to suit a child's palate.
  • If you've got a few beans and lentils left over, and some bored children, try giving them some glue, paper and the left-overs and see if they can make a picture. (Helps to make foods like this second-nature to them!)
  • Add a Soup Mix to your stews and casseroles
    Add Crazy Jack Soup Mix to your stews and casseroles In the depths of winter we all enjoy a hearty stew or casserole! To give your hotpot a little extra goodness, try adding a handful of the Crazy Jack Soup Mix. Ingredients include pearl barley, dried yellow split peas, lentils and barley flakes – all […] Read more...
  • Seaweed water – Tip of the Day
    With the increase in Japanese cooking, seaweed is now part of many people's diets. As seaweed contains all the 14 minerals the body needs, it's great to add to your diet. However, many of the minerals are lost when you soak your seaweed - so instead of throwing away the soaking water, save it to use as a nutritious stock that is really tasty. Read more...
  • Base your meals on starchy foods
    Base your meals on starchy foods. Starchy foods include potatoes, cereals, pasta, rice and bread. Choose wholegrain varieties when you can. Read more...

    Wholefoods are cheaper, better value and help the environment

    Eating wholefoods, especially if they are bought in bulk, can be cheaper, better value and help the environment. To make the most of your wholefoods:

     

    1. Eat less meat: 1 kg of beef results in about 13.3 kg of CO2. The same quantity of CO2 is released when you burn about 6 litres of petrol. By contrast, 1 kg of apples typically produces 0.55 kg of CO2. Try using lentils to bulk out mince in cottage pie, chilli or a pasta dish. Lentils have the added advantage of counting as an extra vegetable. They also make the dish much cheaper: with the savings, you could use really good quality organic mince in all your cooking.

     

    2. Buy your beans and pulses dried, not in tins: this does not have to be part of some hard-core wholefood diet - soaking pulses overnight is easy and much cheaper. Better not to use tins, than to use and recycle. The other advantage with using dried beans is that you can avoid added salt, which is sometimes present in canned beans. It is also much cheaper to post out dried pulses, and uses less fuel, and is much harder to dent a packet than a tin, resulting in less potential waste - all good for the planet.

     

    3. Buy in bulk for wholefoods with a long shelf-life, such as porridge, beans, pulses and flour. This reduces packaging and can be much cheaper: 1 kg of organic porridge oats is around £2.50 kg in your supermarket, but buy it as a 5 kg pack from a specialist company, and the price per kg is £1.65. Buy a 25 kg sack, and the price falls to £1.15. Can you divide a large bag with your neighbours or family?

     

    We are always adding new sizes to our range of wholefoods. Buying your wholefoods in bulk is normally significantly cheaper than buying small packets.
