For cereal, oatmeal is about as whole as it comes. I've been making my own granola with oats as the base. though teh nuts make it higher in fat, it is really yummy, high in protein and fills me up. There are lots of flake cereals that are just whole wheat, sugar and preseervatives. Wheat or bran checks come to mind.
I eat Fiber one, sometimes, but it is sweetened with artiificial sweeteners, which I hate... but Fiber 1 helps me to lose.
Kashi makes some pretty good WF cereals, IIRC
my fave dresings are Annie's Naturals. The Goddess dressing is TDF. Drew's is another natural brand
I still use butter on my veggies. orgainc, raw butter is best, and EVOO is even bette. I now bake with coconut oil.
stevia is a good sugar sub, IMO from a WF perspective.

1. My favorites are, Steel cut oatmeal w/ 1T ground flaxseed (I usually add some berries, soymilk, and sometimes a touch of honey) and Uncle Sam cereal-It's wheat flakes with flaxseeds (10 grams of fiber per serving and only 1g of sugar which comes from the grains not added sugar.)
2. For salads I use, salsa, olive oil and vinegar (1/2 and 1/2), or I make my own. I've found some great recipes that use tofu as the base. As long as all the ingredients are "whole" then I deem the dressing to be "whole" as well.
3. Butter is fine. Organic unsalted is best, but use it sparingly since it's high in saturated fat. Olive oil is a better fat to use.
4. Stevia is fine as a sweetener as is honey, maple syrup and agave syrup (if you are okay with the calories.) Although, more often then not, I forgo all sweeteners. Once you get used to it, you can taste the natural sweetness in foods and you no longer need to sweeten things.
