This typically means using ingredients that are processed as little as possible. A good reference site to check some of the ingredients you are using is with the EWG or Environmental Working Group site where they list more than 80,000 foods, and you can check their ratings. To check the foods scores, you will find information about the nutrition which considers things such as calories, saturated fat, sodium, trans fat, sugar, fiber, protein, and vegetable, fruit and nut content. There is also a processing score which reflects the EWG's best estimate of the extent in which food has been processed. The scoring factors include the modification of individual ingredients from whole foods and the number of artificial ingredients. The score that you see for foods is a combination of the three scores into a single overall product score. This site is a good starting place to get an idea of just how good the products you are using are. With that said, it's really about balancing your food choices with healthy options, and trying to stay away from less healthy options whenever possible.
Almonds are food that is nutritionally dense; a 100-gram serving is a rich source of the B vitamins riboflavin and niacin, calcium, iron, vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and phosphorus. The same sized serving is also a good source of the B vitamins thiamine, vitamin B6, and folate, and the essential mineral potassium. Almonds are also high in dietary fiber, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats, fats which potentially may lower LDL cholesterol.
