Here’s how to use Whole Food Market Recipes.

Step 1: Searching for Recipes

The basic search functionality allows you to search by course, category of food and any special diet you’re on.

If you want to search for a specific kind of food, you can also type that in beneath the filters.

Your search results will be displayed on the next page.

Note: The “G” and “W” tags show what diets the recipe is good for. The “W” for example stands for “Wheat Free” and the “G” stands for “Gluten Free.”

Step 2: Recipe Details

Once you select a recipe, you’ll be presented with all of that recipe’s details. You’ll start at the overview page, which will give you a succulent description of the food. It’ll also give you the nutritional breakdown.

Step 3: Ingredients
