I'm accustomed to having a Whole Foods nearby, and now that I've moved I have to find healthy food again, I'm glad I checked the internet a found you locations, I would like to eat properly once again with your healthy food.

My goal is to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis that are (hopefully) in season.

For 2011, I'm working on a "better" me. As far as food, I want to be better at shopping, not making too many impulse purchases and making sure I have ingredients that I need to cook at home and snacks to eat on the road so that fast food become non-existent in my life.

I want to start creating a menu calendar so I'm always prepared and not tempted to snack on whatever is in the pantry instead of eating a healthy meal.

Eating locally and healthfully within a budget is the challenge our family of 6 faces. I want to keep meal planning, shopping farmers' markets/Whole Foods and try to reduce our costs by 10-25%.

We have busy schedules in our house, so don't always have the time to spend preparing an involved dinner. This year, I've started preparing healthy meals in advance and freezing them. I already have a freezer full of pop-in-oven meals made with organic produce, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and more.

I just went shopping for the first time in 2011 and I got mostly vegetables and fresh things. Instead of buying bad snacks, I got green peppers to cut up when I'm hungry. I'm actually looking forward to being able to sustain it. I know that my body feels better when I eat better. I have more energy and it helps my emotions too. Very excited about this chance!

I am cutting out cane sugar from my diet/cooking. I am also cutting out butter and using coconut oil instead.

My husband was diagnosed in December with Type 2 diabetes, and I need to learn how to prepare healthier foods, specifically low in sugar, for him and the rest of my family.

My husband is a kidney transplant recipient & I am overweight. All last year we "just got by" and didn't eat nearly as. Healthy as we should have. I really want to do better this year.

2011 is going to be a year filled with healthy, organic eating. I want to learn to cook more recipes too... anything to help my family from wanting to eat out!

Just found out I'm having a baby, so I want to be sure to nourish my body with good foods for a growing baby.

Hello, after reviewing such films as food matters, food inc, super size me and others. Our New Years resolution is to slowly transfer over to vegetarian. Also, to purchase more healthier foods and go green. Whole Foods is a great place to find new and interesting foods and products.

I eat about 50% of my food from local farms, but still eat way too too much protein. This year, it is time to eat more local food and to increase vegetables and fruits in a big way this year.

The new year is a great time to clean out the pantry. Get rid of the foods that you haven't eaten (or the ones that aren't good for you!) Check expiration dates. Choose healthy foods and limit treats.

I need to eat more vegetables and fruits. I am requiring myself, if I eat breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack that it involves a fruit or vegetable. Another thing, only eat when I'm hungry. Far too often, I eat when I'm not hungry.

I recently started having dairy again after years without it. I am going to learn how to continue doing so this year without making it unhealthy or overdoing it!

In my weekly grocery budget, I'm dedicating to spending at least $20 in fresh produce and I will only buy organic eggs and milk. These are non-negotiable. I am really curious how far $99 in staples would go. Is that just one month's worth of staples? How long would that stretch? If I don't win, I plan to do my own experiment!

I plan to try to be better at eating "cleaner" by planning my meals around meats and produce in their simplest form but still introducing flavors by fresh and dried herbs and spices. I want everything that goes into me and my families bodies to be good for us...with the occasional indulgence of course! I am inspired and motivated by all the healthy food choices at my local whole foods. They help to prove that healthy food does not have to be boring or flavorless.

My goal is to eat with purpose this year. Portion control and moderation of course, but really eating foods that serve a purpose to my mind, body, and spirit. We eat to satisfy a psysiological need but we forget that not everything we eat is actually nourishing our bodies in a way that is beneficial to it. So I resolve to eat foods that have a positive purpose and to think about the benefits the foods I'm putting into my mouth will have on my overall health and well-being today and tomorrow.

I am very excited because I just moved to Austin, TX where there is an AWESOME Whole Foods in downtown. I live with my family of 7 and my goal this year is to move my entire family over to healthy eating! My grandma is recovering from cancer and can't eat gluten, my brother is lactose intolerant, and my dad is well on his way to diabetes so my mother and I have a huge challenge ahead of me to find food that benefits everyone and tastes good as well! I've eaten healthy for a couple years, mostly at Whole Foods, and have grown to love healthy, whole foods rather than the processed food I used to eat. I want my family to learn to enjoy good food as well and to also be healthy and beat the health risks that run in our family! We can do it!

I'm moving to an all natural diet this year. No preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils, etc.

I plan on joining a local CSA and challenging myself to not let anything in the share boxes go to waste. I also plan on integrating more vegetables in my meals and make meat more a side dish versus main course.
