This year, my husband and I are eating more plants, including whole grains, eating fewer animals, and not eating after 7:00 p.m.

I am trying to become a healthier person. I am drinking more water, no more diet drinks and eating lots of vegetables. Exercise is my challenge, but I'm going to try my hardest to make it a habit. I love shopping at Whole Foods to get the healthiest, organic products and support local growers as well.

We strive to eat a rainbow diet of many different organic fruits and veggies. I'm raising my children to appreciate that which comes from the farm and garden. We grow a lot ourselves. We also eat only grass fed beef, not conventional corn fed. Our eggs are local-from our own chickens. Working on canning and putting more foods up each year!

I try to eat as many "whole" foods as possible, serving foods that do not come in a package or if they do, have few ingredients. I run out of ideas to please picky children and a husband with sophisticated tastes and end up with the same menus recycled over and over again. I would love a food make-over!! :)

I am going to make sure we cook some healthy veggie stews and have them around all the time so that we do not fall back on lazy eating.

I'd love a gift card; I spend too much income on trying to get my children to eat healthy. I was successful in getting them to accept kale in broccoli soup, I hope I can get more soups in them this year.

We're going to try to set aside time for preparation. Almost every fresh and healthy food kick we go on requires prep work, and with our continual busy schedules, we always let that fall to the wayside. We got engaged this Christmas, so there's a whole new commitment to be healthy for ourselves and each other! My personal goal is to set post dinner time for chopping, blending and proportioning the next day's (or week's!) healthy meals.

I am a recent college graduate, starting out in my first job as a teacher and I also have celiac disease. I try to eat healthy but find it difficult to not spend a fortune on foods that are gluten substitutes, so I end up cutting out a lot of grains. I want to try to bake gluten free, but have a hard time spending money on something I am not sure will turn out well.

I'm cooking for myself for the first time. (I'm a 20 year old student.) I'm using whole grains and vegetables (no meat if I can avoid it) and really enjoying the experiment of cooking as organically as possible on a budget and a tight schedule. Staples are homemade granola (sooo much cheaper and you can make it just as you like it) and big batches of soup in the freezer.

My biggest challenge is getting my husband on board. He's about 25% on board, but mostly because I do all of the grocery shopping. My inspiration is finding new and exciting, and healthy products at Whole Foods. I can always find something new at Whole Foods. I would use the gift card to take him on a mini-shopping spree and have him pick out products that he would enjoy.

Less processed, more raw foods.

Our family has been on this journey of slowly eliminating the processed foods and eating more whole foods. I am always looking for ways to do this within our food budget. It is definitely more economical to eat the foods that are unhealthy! That is a terrible reflection on our society and where our priorities lie. I would love more ideas on eating right on a budget! Thank you. I love shopping at Whole Foods!

Eat more organic produce, especially of the "dirty dozen" type.

I joined Dr. Oz's 11 week diet plan, which is free. I am going thru my kitchen an tossing all unhealthy food items. I will be starting an exercise program working out 30 minutes a day. I will be buying all organic foods. I will be getting my support from the Dr. Oz website, which offers direct access to personal trainers at no charge. I want to help Nebraska move up from being number 147 out of over 150 healthiest cities in the United States. My 1st goal is to loose 10% of my current weight in 6 weeks. My cousin and I are in a contest. Whoever is first to loose the 10% gets $50.00 Also, Nebraska has an abundance of organic products to choose from. What we need is a drive thru which servers healthy and organic foods. I think the business owner could get government funding for a business that served healthy foods, at a fair price, and serve the meals quickly. Look out all you fast food chains, Nebraska will pioneer this new food industry. Nebraska was made great by our pioneer heritage!!

I have been shopping at whole foods for about a year and have been making some changes to my eating but there is more that I want to do. I have heart and high blood pressure problems in my family and had a stinit implanted 8 years ago. I thought I was eating well but the weight has stated coming back even though I work out. The seafood department is great adn the only red meat I eat now is bison. I recently started on probiotics at the advice of a clerk and have been able to stop one prescribe med as well

In 2011 I'm going to stop snacking late at night and snack on fruits and veggies instead of cookies! I'm motivated by wanting to feel better and fitter.

We set a goal for our entire family; mom, dad, and 3 kids to try a new fruit or vegetable once a week this year!!! We love Whole Foods. The food bar is my kids' favorite place to eat in town.

I am eliminating sugar, not just the sugar in candy which I dearly love to eat, but 99% of the sweet stuff from my diet. I plan on having less inflammation in my body by paying attention to sugar content even if it means I have to cook and prepare everything I put into my mouth myself.

We are cutting back on dairy and fats. We already eat lots of fruits and veggies so will try to incorporate more grains this year. Inspiration comes from so many places and so many choices (like Whole Foods and great ATL restaurants)available to us.

I will be eating more greens both cooked and raw and greatly reducing processed foods. I feel the variety available at Whole Foods will keep it exciting and the abundant organic choices will help me meet and exceed my health goals. Access to a Healthy Eating Specialist would be such a blessing, especially in making healthy choices and having a variety of delicious recipes.

I've been pretty much been off of processed foods for 2 years now. I've never felt better and enjoyed eating more. You don't have to be vegan to embrace healthy eating. Whole Foods supports healthy eating however you wish to do it. Now, if they would please open one in the Kingwood, Tx area, I (and my neighbors) would be delighted!
