I plan to eat more natural foods and eliminate all foods containing high fructose corn syrup from my diet. I am also going to try to improve my cooking skills so that we can eat out less and to make it easier to eat fewer processed foods.

As vegetarians with various diet restrictions meal planning is tough. I want to make more mindful food choices in 2011. And I want to make more ethical food choices, like buying cage free dairy, etc. I want to learn more about how this works. My inspiration for these changes is my husband, who is type 1 diabetic. Seeing how hard this disease is on his body motivates me to make sure he gets the most out of his food as possible. And with our two sons watching I want to live by a good example :)

This year I'm looking to eliminate processed foods from my and my family's diet and include more organic, healthier meals. I trust Whole Foods to offer a great selection of great food without all the stuff we don't need.

In 2011, I plan to shop more frequently for the freshest, in season ingredients and plan to menu plan weekly. The ideas and knowledge Whole Foods shares are motivating and inspirational. My view and passion for healthy food has completely changed because of it. My husband and I will forever be grateful. And everyone close to us knows it too! Whole Foods, I think you are a revolution . . . :)

I learned recently that more than 2/3 of all deaths in the US are diet related. I eat healthy in general but am sometimes limited in my budget to buy all the natural/organic foods I want to! I try to put my dollars more towards healthy food than other material items though. A farmer from the documentary "Food, Inc." made a good point that although artificial and unhealthy food may be cheaper, we are paying more in social costs. Good food is more expensive, but cheaper in "social costs" and are better for the environment, farmers, people eating the food, etc. A healthy life and lifestyle is more important than cute shoes or clothes!

I'm an overweight mom of 7 children. I keep trying to improve my eating habits, but have little encouragement. I hope to increase raw foods this year, along with eliminating processed foods.

My husband and I are starting off the year with a 21 day detox (first time for both of us). After that is complete, I'd hate to go back to the processed food nightmare we live in right now. I want to feed my family less processed foods and finally learn how to eat our vegetables! We resolve to cook more at home and eat less pre-fab food. If I can't pronounce an ingredient - why am I eating it?

My husband and I are looking forward to starting this year in a healthier manner by getting back to the basics, more fruit and vegetables and less preservatives. Looking forward to starting the new year right with Whole Foods.

Like many people, I'd like to eat more locally. And while we eat a lot of veggies and whole grains, I'd like to learn to be more creative in serving them (lentil loafs, quinoa cakes, etc.) so that my kids are more excited to eat them. I'm also planning to include my four year old in more meal prep. I figure he'll be moe likely to eat if he has a hand in making it!

This new year I have decided to make an active effort to eat right. I have begun with "The Fat Flush Plan". I'm excited and looking forward to shopping at Whole Foods each week.

We should all make the effort to cook at home whenever we can. Start with fresh ingredients, keep it simple, maximize flavor with herbs & spices and try to avoid processed food & condiments. Just think that you are investing your time for your health and remember preparing your own meal can be easy and quick too!!

I have been trying for 12 yrs to lose weight without success. I have tried various diets and exercise plans. I just heard about the Engine 2 diet and I am interested in this in hopes that it will not only help me to lose weight but become healthier, with more energy and less health issues.

As a family we decided that we would start eating healthier. My kids promised to try try different foods, and our goal is to stick to the "eat a rainbow mantra". I love trying international dishes, and now my goal is to find healthier ways to bring the world to our table.

I am trying to switch my diet over to a more flexitarian diet as a lifestyle change. It has been a work in progress, but I'm hoping it will get better/easier over the new year.

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.
