Default Help with whole food options!!

I just started a diet that was recommended to me through Crossfit Vancouver called the Fit 4 You 5. Rule 3 is only eat whole unprocessed food that started out alive. I'm looking for examples of filling whole foods to make meals out of. Thanks to anyone who can give me some good ideas.

Any fresh vegetable. Any fresh fruit. Any protein (beef, chicken, pork, seafood, etc).

Whole grains might or might not fall into that book's definition, not sure, but if they are permitted, you can explore lots of options that are very close to unprocessed (brown rice, whole wheat pasta, quinoa, amaranth, barley, wheat berries, steel cut oats), beans (dried is closer to unprocessed than canned, as you can control the sodium...drying is "processing", but not in a way that reduces nutrients significantly), lentils, etc.

I just finished reading "Food Matters" by Mark Bittman. There are some excellent recipes, meal plans and "pantry lists" in the back of the book. I highly recommend it!

Crossfit (in general) recommends a Paleo diet (meaning, eat what existed in the pre-Agriculture era). There are a lot of pros & cons to it (I don't subscribe, personally). So, Crossfit would recommend most protein from eggs and meat sources (Paleo is no dairy, no processed stuff like Tofu, and not even beans!). Huge sources of veggies - because grains are out too!

A bit extreme, eh?

I would recommend basing a diet around mandalinn82's post.
