Whole food natural ingredients taste better because you can actually taste the food instead of the chemicals.
A natural whole food diet includes desserts, like this patriotic pie, in moderation.
Whole foods made with real food ingredients taste good and fill you up. When you eat foods that are naturally high in fiber even if they are high calories it will be easier to eat in moderation.
