Whole Foods (the foods, not the store!)

I stumbled upon this online training manual for employees at a food co-op somewhere in the US. It's adapted from the National Cooperative Grocery Association's Food Training Manual.

I was hesitant to post this, because there's a section that deals with meat (and I figured that it could be offensive to some of this blog's readers). That being said, the information in the rest of the manual is invaluable. It contains everything from information on the organic certification process to detailed breakdowns of the differences between various types of grain. There's some really good stuff in there and I think it's a good starting point for someone who wants to move away from processed foods and start eating more wholesome foods or making more meals from scratch.

This is a great resource! Thanks for the link. It's nice to have a little more "behind the scenes" information about a lot of this stuff. Especially about the differences in the grains, wonderful. I'm going to go look at this in more detail now. Thanks again.
