Treat the body like a temple at the country's first national certified organic market.. In Short Whole Foods is a vegetarian's dream grocery store, with a focus on natural and organic goods and a gargantuan selection of fruits, vegetables and vegan products. But carnivores won't feel neglected, as stores also boast a vast selection of top-quality meats, poultry and fish. Also expect fresh-baked goods, housewares, a floral department and a well-stocked vitamin and personal-product section. Deli offers hot and cold prepared foods and artisanal cheeses.
Great place for picky eaters.
On a recent trip to NOLA with 10 high school students from Oregon, we repeatedly relied on Whole Foods for healthy, diverse dinners. We often came here on nights when we didn't want a formal dinner and students always found something that appealed to them, from sushi to pizza to fresh salads. My bonus: getting them to eat organic foods and feeding dinner to 13 people in under $120.
