We just continue to try our best to eat whole foods with as little processing as possible. A gift card to go towards a pantry makeover would be very, very helpful in doing this....especially at Whole Foods. Why oh why is it so much more expensive to eat well!? And I've read all of the "how to eat healthfully for next to nothing" articles/posts....it's just not true. In American it is much easier to save money on CRAP... and that is a travesty.

In May, I was diagnosed with cancer. Through the Block Medical Center I became aware of how important a vegetarian nutrient dense diet is to the cancer patient going through treatment and who does not want it to recur. Thus in August I began overnight the whole new lifestyle of organic vegetarian eating. I've lost 30 of 100 needed pounds to lose. I hope to learn more recipes and become more aware of places within WF to shop that meet the requirements of this diet. Hopfully, my sons and husband will join me in this quest for health.

In 2011 our goal is to eat less processed more natural foods. fruits, vegetables, home cooked meals so we know what ingredients are in it. We plan to spend more time being aware of what we eat instead of eating "unconsciously". Cheers to a healthy & prosperous year!

I would love to stock up my pantry with some great organic items. Over the last few months we have been moving to a mainly organic diet to ensure we are not eating GMOs. Whole Foods has a great selection of organics for my family.

I would like to eat less highly processed foods and eat more organic and natural foods and find a way to be able to afford to do so on a budget.

In 2011, I plan to incorporate alternatives into my diet. I am going to wake up from the unconscious choices I make of cow's milk products, grains, and meats. To do this I am going to branch out and mix it up with goat, soy, coconut & almond milks, grains like quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth & others, along with meats like rabbit, pheasant & buffalo. I think this variety will be both fun and healthy.

I want to slow down and notice my food while I'm eating. Hopefully I can stop the mindless munching and actually know when I'm full.

I want to actually pass on the gift of a well-stocked pantry to friends who are trying to learn the concept!

I've dubbed this year "take care of mommy". Life's been hectic with two kids under 3 + working full-time. I'm going to sleep earlier, exercise regularly and most importanly, eat better. My kids love to SNACK and I want my eldest to revert back to loving fruits AND vegetables. I need to minimize the amount of sugar/processed foods they eat. I figure, I need to lead by example and eat well myself so they can do what kids do and copy me (and my husband)! WE NEED TO EAT BY EXAMPLE! =)

We have food allergies in our home (wheat, dairy, egg, oat, barley, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, legumes) so we have lots of limitations with what our family can eat. Trying to find alternatives is always top on the list to ensure that there is a variety of things that we can eat. The kids are 6, 3 and an infant so accommodating for the allergies can be a challenge. Also, as a cancer survivor, it's important that I also am mindful of more cancer-fighting foods in our diet. My goal for this year is to spend more time working on more healthy ways to eat for the family.

We finally got our own house after living with in-laws for several years. I'm having to re-learn to plan the menus, cook, and plan healthy snacks for us and the boys and I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy so I try to fulfill my guys' need for cheese and make something I can eat too. My goal for this year is to learn more about organic food, what's available in my area, and how to make stuff 1.) I can eat!, 2.) We can afford, 3.) That my boys will ask for again.

I have stopped counting calories and am concentrating on nutrient-dense foods such as nuts, fruit, quinoa, beans, and other whole grains in general. Since changing to this style of eating, I have lost 60 pounds without dieting. I eat almost no meat at all, but I do eat fish around once a week.

I need to make sure that my family grows up eating healthy so that they have a good food foundation to build on. I don't want my daughter to have to deal with making the promises and resolutions of weight loss and eating healthy that her parents have. I want to be healthy and happy for my myself, my husband and most importantly my daughter.

Whole foods has become my replacement for a pub, or restaurant. It helps support my efforts toward healthy living in both it's local, organic food choices as well as it's festive atmosphere.

I definately live on a budget, sometimes not properly eating at all... ...I could definately use a boost to my pantry and in terms of health. Healthy food is so important when on a tight budget because that's when it's next door to impossible! Happy 2011!!

I have a little one with many food allergies. I rely on Whole Foods for wholesome options for her. Our whole family has made a commitment to eat more options that are healthy, including products that are less processed and more nutritionally complete.

I am determined to eat healthy, organic foods as much as possible. It is difficult to buy these foods on a budget, but I want to live a healthier life. My inspiration comes from my dad who has diabetes and is losing the battle. I don't want to get diabetes and having my pantry stocked with healthy foods and good ideas on how to use them is a good start!

Our family needs to lose the refined sugars all together, and up our veggies especially those that are green! I want to learn to stock a healthy pantry and make great meals.

3 years ago I had a very productive midlife crisis and went back to school to earn a nursing degree. My family coudn't afford to lose my income so I went to school nights and weekends and worked days. I also have two young boys and a wonderful husband. What I haven'd had is a lot of time to make good health choices. On one of my last clinical shifts in school, all the patients I cared for were younger than me! This was such a wake up call. I graduated in December and my new year's resolution is to take better care of myself and my family and that starts with a health diet! I'd love a pantry make over!

I am trying to introduce less meat to our family dinners. This has been a bit of an effort to be honest because I have to get around my notion of meat, starch and veggie as the dinner combo. I would love the help of getting started with a patnry makeover.

This years resolution is for me and my girlfriend to start eating a more Paleolithic diet. And less of the refined stuff. I'm very good at eating lean during the week but come the weekend my girlfriends pantry is a mess of Junk foods that I'm trying to rid of. Please HELP me motivate her! THANKS!
