Whole Foods ("Whole Wallet") has some great stuff but they are way overpriced on many items and they don't carry some basics that can be easily obtained elsewhere. I don't know that it makes it less "real" but I can easily see why someone would get frustrated trying to buy all of their necessities at Whole Foods.

I shop for meats and cheeses there and a few specialty items for my daughter who's allergic to milk, eggs, and nuts, but generally other items I need can be had at my local Safeway or Albertsons for much cheaper (including organic/"unprocessed" items).

Don't be fooled into thinking you're saving the world by shopping there. You're likely just draining your bank account....
