Less processed food: You may have an unhealthy vegan diet if you add too many processed foods. Granted , they may be better than non vegan choices. Using whole foods whenever possible is a good start.

Always go, as much as possible, for "fresh, whole and unprocessed, ideally organic, foods exactly as they grow up out of the ground & in the field": brown rice is better than white rice, almonds better than almond butter, apples than apple juice--at the 90 + % level.

Healthy Diet: Hi Josh. A giant question; I'll narrow it down. I call it "F.A.T". F - Frequency, A - Amount, and T - Type. All of these will determine how healthy your diet is. Frequency - Eating 3 big meals during the day vs. smaller meals throughout the day (better). Amount: Too much or too little. Type - Poor quality food (e.g, fatty, sugar, and/or "fast food"-type items vs. Yogurt, fruit/nuts, chicken.

Organic whole foods: There's no consensus on what the healthiest diet is as there's no one-size-fits-all diet for everyone, but I advise eating mostly organic whole foods with an emphasis on veggies, fruits and nuts. I like Dr. Hyman's dietary advice: https://tinyurl.com/yb9guouj For my essays on the pros/cons of various diets see https://tinyurl.com/ycyqv3ny For why organic is best see https://tinyurl.com/huas65f
