While I agree that Whole Foods is overpriced, much of their selection is a lot less processed than what you'd buy at a "real supermarket" ... Cheez Whiz? I Can't Believe It's Not Butter? Balongna? Fairly self explanatory, you're not gonna find that junk at a co-op.

There are certain things I would rather buy at a co-op; cereals, breads, produce and meats. All of which tend to be fresher and lower in junk calories. There's a great natural foods chain in California called Staff of Life. They're as cheap or cheaper than Safeway and Ralph's in pretty much everything except pre-sliced deli meat. Definitely worth a look if you have one in your area and you're sick of partially hydrogenated stuff.
