My goal this year is to cook more from my cookbooks rather than ordering in or eating out.

my 2011 Healhty Resolution is to eliminate processed foods, take the time to pamper myself by only cooking with fresh veggies & meats, and using exotic legumes, herbs, and spices to keep it all interesting. It really doesn't take any longer, just takes a little planning in the beginning.

My biggest thing is to stay away from indulging in too many sweets and to also eat mindfully. I want to think about and consider everything I eat before I eat it and once I do eat it, savor every bite and happily know that I am eating healthy. I find my motivation and inspiration from Darya Pino. She's a blogger at summertomato.com. I have been a reader of her site for ages.

I've recently switched to a vegetarian diet- both for health reasons and for the ecological health of the planet. Inspired by the book "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer, I'm committed to maintaining my non-animal meat based diet. Winning this contest would help my family to stock our pantry with nutrionally dense, flavorful items that I can cook with them.

We'll be eating more locally-grown produce this year!

I just found whole foods last year and I love it, I wished I lived closer but will drive to shop there! Everything is fabulous esp the gelato! Yum! I'm excited to start this year off right!

What a great giveaway - we love the brand new Whole Foods at Lincoln Park - the shopping experience provides huge inspiration to eat more green (literally)!

This year our family plans to eat healthier by cutting out the refined sugars, eat cage free and free range items. We live in a fairly small town, so we will be making use of our local farmers market for fresh fruits and vegetables.

We're planning to transition our cupboard stores over to organic/natural. Specifically, our spices, seasonings, soups, and noodles.

I have a sweet tooth, so my goal is to eat sweets in moderation.

Packing my lunch the night before, so that I don't end up going out to eat for lunch as much.

Whole Foods, I am single, and work long hours behind a desk. I need to learn how to eat better, healthier and properly. You would think at 41 years of age I would know how to do this. I need someone to help me jump start my New Year with a healthy eating plan, that of course starts with the basics. Helpless careless eater in Virginia.

In 2011 I have made it a goal to get rid of HFCS in our diet (both myself and my fiance). We both love whole foods and feel "safe" shopping there, if that makes any sense. We've always agreed that if Whole Foods sells it, it must be healthy! We find our motivation and inspiration from Healthy living blogs as well as just pushing each other to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Would be great to have someone give us some pointers on stocking the pantry from Whole Foods!

2011 marks the first year that I will be entirely living on my own and supporting myself. While I will be more careful with how much I spend on things, I do not want the quality of food to go down. Being able to cook a healthy dinner for my girlfriend and I once a week would be a great skill to add.

Hello WF, I was eating healthy, but now have a hiccup in life that's temporarily prevented me from thinking about food choices. I just try to find the least expensive, closet food, I can. I'm feel like my insides have turned to a mush all for a very poorer immune system. I prided myself on keeping organic and balanced. So I'd like to regain consistency. And since I really don't cook all that much, a few simple delicious recipes would be excellent. Be Well

I am trying to eat mostly all local and seasonal foods this year. It can be tough to pay attention to where foods come from, but it is so benefical to our bodies, enviroment, and of course the local economy.

I'm a runner, but I'm also a cookie monster. I want to qualify for the 2012 Boston Marathon this year through the NY marathon; therefore, I plan eat healthier, shed a few fat lbs, ad lean muscle and cut down my first marathon time by 15-20 minutes. Lofty goal perhaps, but last year at this time I had no idea I'd have completed my first 26.2 miles in just 4:02! To do this, I plan to stick to the leftside of your WholeFoods Buckhead location, which is filled with fruits, veggies, vitamins, the juice bar, and steer clear from right side, the cheese, wine and pastry section....most days ;) Lucky for me, there's also a running group that meets at this location once a week. Hoping to find other marathoners in this group and get additional eating tips for distance runners.

We are making a huge effort to eliminate BPA-containing cans from our pantry. My motivation comes from keeping my 4-year-old and my bun-in-the-oven safe and healthy. We eat a lot of beans and it's easy enough to soak and cook whole beans but we have not mastered the art of making vegetarian refried beans!

I recently turned 25 and I feel now is the time to start being serious about a healthy lifestyle. I want to move forward in multiple parts of my life and I feel a healthy lifestyle will help it all come together. I want to feel good about everything that goes into my body this year! Drink more water, eat fresh foods and explore new healthy recipes! A $99 gift card would be a great start!

I hope to lessen my carbohydrate intake. As a type 1 diabetic and a newly diagnosed crohn's patient, eating fewer sugar carbs lessens my troubles: pain, hyperglycemia. Crohn's also limits my appetite frequently. I would like to pay more attention to the foods I eat. I need to make sure I'm eating all the nutrients needed.

2011 will be the year I eliminate over-processed foods! The less ingredients, the better.

I am working on incorporating new whole grains (such as quinoa) and other non-processed staples (such as dried beans) in my diet. Not only will this help me eat more healthily, it will allow me to be more creative in my cooking. My other big effort is to reduce the number of take-out meals (even those from Whole Foods!)by cooking at home every night. And my "picky-eating" children prefer it when I cook, and it helps me break them out of their limited diet.

My goal for the new year is to eat more colorful meals. Less starches, more brightly colored delicious fruits and veggies!

I want to start eating more nutritious foods packed full of vitamins and minerals. I'm starting an "alternative" form of medication. I have had MS for 3 years. Although it does not restrict me from my daily life, I believe eating whole and organic foods helps your immune system work to its full potential. I recently had my fiance join me in eating whole foods and local organic meats.
