The Earth Balance butter substitute is something that I will definitely include when I bake treats for my mom- as she has health issues and this butter substitute would be perfect for her! :-)

I would love to get a bouquet of whole trade flowers and some delicious chocolate. I also love Whole Food's dried Mango Strips. Yum!

I'm in love with everything at whole foods, but my favorite of the week are the whole foods brand organic ice cream sandwiches. They're getting me excited for summer! Oh yeah, I don't know the name, but I'm also in love with these rosemary crackers in the craker aisle. They go great with the St. Vincent stinky cheese!! Think I'll go to whole foods for lunch!!

The last 3 years we've had a Mother's Day tradition of stopping by Whole Foods Market for lunch after church. This is the one day a year I splurge and my husband buys me the Dark Chocolate Mocha from the Coffee Bar, and we each choose what we want from the salad bar, or sandwich bar. We then sit out on the patio and enjoy a yummy, healthy lunch. AND one of the gifts to me, as a busy mom of three, is I didn't have to clean up at home, and I didn't have to stress about bringing my kids to a fancy buffet in a restaurant. Thank you WF for making my Mother's Day special. I'm looking forward to that Mocha again this year! :)

I live in Brooklyn and drive into Manhattan with my husband every few weeks to buy up the nutritious foods that Whole Foods has to offer. Anything from the 365 brand is a good buy and good to eat or drink. Burt's Bees and Tom's of Maine products are favorite toiletries of my family. It is a pleasure to shop at Whole Foods-it's a clean, organized store with so much to offer all of its customers!!

I would have to say hands down (pun intended) that my favorite product is Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream. It smells good enough to eat and work wonders on tired, overworked Mom's hands.

My Mom's diabetic and there are so many things I could choose, but I think I'll let her choose and buy her a gift card, so she can have all the fun!

I love the Follow your Heart grapeseed oil vegenaise. It is almost identical to regular mayonaise as far as taste is concerned. It actually has a fresher taste than normal mayo. Unlike regualr mayonaise however, it is egg and dairy free and is filled with healthier fats than mayonaise. I use it as a replacement in any recipe that calls for mayonaise. It definitely gives tuna salad a much fresher taste!!

My mom adopted a 2 yr old who is now 5, and myself and my son moved in with her about 1 1/2 years ago. We are always on the go, so a quick dinner is always a must. The spinach and feta salmon burgers are awesome! We put them on the George Foreman grill, add some baked chips and sparkling water and we have a 15 minute meal. We love the seafood department in the store and the kids love the fresh fruit trays because they can just dig right in. Our household favorite: the freshly made Creme Brulee and the Pineapple Basil gelato!

Where do I begin? Driving in from the north... before I leave the house, I load my big WFM cooler. I drop my recyclables in the bins our back of the store(thank you WFM)... in to shop. Organics, local produce..I can trust my family will enjoy and is so good for them. Everything is so fresh! Up and down each aisle..salad dressings, pasta, canned goods! We love 365 brand products. Also knowing I can find a product no other store, or "farmers market" will have in stock keeps me coming back each week. WFM you are a big part of our family!

As a mom, I am always excited when my husband and kids get involved in "healthier eating"...Going to Whole Foods is one of our favorite family outings! On Mother's Day, I would love my kids to pick out a variety of fresh fruits and make their "world famous" fruit kebobs (with a bit of supervision from Dad)! They could bring them to me while I enjoy time on our patio...admiring the flowers and sipping on an Italian Sparkling Soda! Whole Foods...Thank you for making my job as a Mom easier!

Your prepared meals are always a plus when I don't have time to cook. Also like your tea varieties.

I love giving my mom consumable things. She already has everything she could possibly need so I give her things she can use up and not have to hold on to forever. Her favorites are flowers, bath salts, salad dressings (don't ask!) and wine. She'd have a blast with a gift certificate to Whole Foods!

I love the baby supplies. Although we went with cloth diapers for babyhood, for overnights we love the 365 training pants (read: eco-pull ups) - diapers just don't hold it all overnight anymore. They're less expensive and more ecologically produced than other disposable training pants. Also, I default to the 365 brand of wipes since they are also less expensive and they are so much thicker, stronger and soapier than the other eco brands. My little one and I thank you!

I can't live without the produce, for my husband and I and our toddler. I am late to the steaming world for babies but now do it and make other dishes out of the slow cooked veggies and it's fabulous!! I also LOVE the truffles, 365, I think it's a great price and definitely delicious, and there are different flavors to boot! My all-time pick is the pizzas! The WF's made ones, the fresh ones. Not available in all stores, but worth the trek (very slight) to a different neighborhood's location, and I pick up 2 at a time, half-baked to finish off hot at home and to have some leftovers for lunches or another dinner, yah! Sooo good, with good ingredients I cannot find elsewhere and don't have time to throw together myself sometimes (or for a nice Friday night treat). Thanks, Whole Foods!! You don't even know how often my son and I visit all the bay area locations just for a good time out. Funny, but true!

My favorite is the Purely Decadent gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough coconut milk ice cream and their vanilla yogurt. The best part, the ice cream has 5-6 grams of fiber per serving, agave nectar syrup, so it makes you feel full, just enough sweetness to enjoy guilt free! THANK YOU for both!

Every time I shop at WF, I get something at the fish counter. It's wonderful to choose from here in the center of the midwest! I also have liked the variety of frozen pizzas. I haven't sampled them all yet, but I'm working on it. They are perfect to have in your freezer for a yummy easy snack or meal.

Your fresh produce dept rocks! I love the high selection of produce- hmm... what kind of pear shall I have in my salad today :-P And am I ever so grateful for the "Raw-Foodist" section! Takes the work out of having to look for places to get the things which I need.

Having an allergic child, I think it is a bless to have a store such as Whole Foods to shop. My son loves the Gluten Free pretzels. Every morning I make him some pancakes with Bob's Red Mill Pancake Mix, or I heat some frozen Van's waffles. They are so good that the whole family is now enjoying them.

I like the... ...bulk food, because I can get exactly what I need. ...the vegan food and products, because I'm vegan. But, I wish there were more fresh made vegan pastries(not the packaged kind). ...the 365 brand items, because they are usually cheaper than brand name items.
