The timing for this offer is fabulous! After reading Tosca Renos' book, "Your Best Body Now", I am motivated to clean my pantry out of processed and/or packaged foods, and to stock it with whole grains, nuts, beans, healthy oils & various kinds of non dairy milks! Since my hubby is sensitive to wheat, I also want to stock up with some healthy wheat free options to traditional pastas!

I plan to steam more veggies and/or saute lightly in olive oil and drink lots of water! I find motivation and inspiration from watching health programs on TV and exercising with my Wii!

I'm expecting my second child this spring and already have a young toddler at home. We generally eat healthy now, but I am resolved to get a plan in place so we can stick to healthy eating with two little girls under 3 in the house. Plus, we need to be budget conscious as we are on a single income while I stay home. I would LOVE a simple to follow and budget-friendly plan!

My husband and I made a decision in early January to eat organic, go green at home, and make healthier choices for ourselves and our family. In the last few weeks we have primarily eaten fresh, local and organic foods - we feel so much better already and are amazed as we didn't actually think we would feel better physically. It really is making a difference for us. Thanks Whole Foods!

As the year has begun, I wanted to become even healthier, as I am preparing myself for competitive water skiing, this spring. So going thru, my pantry, I have made a few changes. The most significan change that has been made is completely not using sugar, in my coffee. I simply changed to Honey. And the best part of this change is finding out the different flavors of honey, that come from different parts of our Americas! So give it a try, and explore the different Honey companies...because each one taste a little different. What a Delight!

Eat locally and eliminate as many processed products from my diet as possible. Cook more often!

I have been a vegan for the last ten years and I eat a very clean diet, which excludes the majority of processed food. However, I do hope to expand the variety of my meals and introduce some new products into my repertoire.

I am trying to give up sweets (tough because I am definitely addicted!) I am inspired to do this by the idea that I will be healthier, may lose a few pounds and may get clearer skin as well.

I have made a greater commitment to eat organic and all natural foods as often as possible, even though there is such temptation to eat junk food everywhere I look. From bill boards to city bus ads, temptation to step off the path of a healthy lifestyle is great. I am grateful that Whole Foods has made this commitment easy because I and my husband can do one-stop shopping for everything we need: meats, fish, poultry, veggies, fruits....even organic wines are available at the store in Valencia. So thanks so much for making my shopping needs effortless so that I can maintain my healthy eating habits. :-)

Along with my elimination of sugar from morning coffee, I am going to try various alternative sweeteners. I have a small bottle of agave nectar, which I used recently to sweeten a batch of homemade baklava. Indistinguishable from white sugar, tastewise. Worked fine.

I have fibromyalsia and six months ago I discovered that fibromyalsia is an allergic TYPE of reaction to dairy and all dairy protiens. I have been pain free for about 5 months now (and no medications)but I need to eat a propper diet. I also really miss cheese and I'm dieing to try the soy cheese that I often hear about. I'm still learning and trying to figure out which foods are safe for me which can be very time consuming as I have to read the ingredients of everything. It would be fantastic to have someone with the knowledge to help me find an easier way to shop and eat healthy. Thank you for your time!

I live alone and do not know how to cook, so at night it is much easier for me to order out or just snack for dinner. It is my goal in 2011 to make healthy meals for myself. I plan to start slow, try one new recipe a week and dedicate myself to the kitchen. I hope this can save me time and money as well as jumpstarting a healthy new year!

I *so* need a pantry makeover! I love most kinds of fruit, so I'm really good about getting my required servings in there. I try to minimize the processed foods and make a lot of ingredients on my own.

I'm trying to make more vegetarian meals. I'm not trying to go vegetarian or anything, I"m just trying to prove to my family that you CAN have a complete meal without meat! I also want to learn how to make use some of the healthier grains - quinoa, spelt,etc.

This year, I'm going to make SURE I incorporate more salads and vegetables into meals. I plan my meals as far as the entree goes, but I tend to forget about side dishes until the last minute.

My two daughters both have thyroid issues so this year I'm going to learn flavorful gluten-free recipes to help them!

I tend to live off of Lean Cuisines and would love how to pack an easy, healthy lunch for work that is easy to prepare.

Like many other people, I started a new diet on January 1, 2011. It is the Macrobiotic Diet. I'm glad that there's a Whole Foods nearby to keep me supplied with the specialty items that this diet requires.

I plan to buy mostly grass fed meat and move away from processed foods. And buy as many organics as we can afford.

I need help with meal that are able to be premade and just heated up, a one yr old and a kid being born anyday now. We will have our hands full, and this would help out tremenduslly. We need a lifestyle change in our pantry.

My father died of lung cancer a year and seven months ago. I quit smoking for good a year and five months ago. As a result I turned to food for comfort. I am a single mom and I know how important is it for me to be a good role model for my 12 year old son. Over the past year I've been making changes to our diet and lifestyle. We now walk around our neighborhood and go to the gym together. I try to follow his spirit toward exercise while modeling healthy eating habits for him. I take him shopping with me and let him choose his own organic breakfast foods and school snacks. We now examine & discuss nutritional labels. I traded sweet tea for water and green tea and he now drinks water and milk with only an occasional soda. I've started to expose us to new foods, like quinoa, rice crackers, and even starting making my own soups in our new Vitamix. I would love some help in transforming our pantry and ultimately our future!

This year I'm trying to cook less processed food and have more fresh and healthier dishes. I love to cook and would love to have more clean dishes that taste good too!
