a recent surgery and the philosophy inherent in the book Eat to Live completely changed my perspective towards what eating healthy truly means. a diet rich in nutrients, low calorie intake and an exercise routine are my new lifestyle!

I like to eat limited amounts of meat, and I try to eat lots of fruits, veggies, and grains. I try to eat organic whenever possible.

I have just lost 86# and am getting ready to go on a maintenance plan full of vegetables, proteins, and whole grains. Sure could use the gift card.

I'm due to have my second child in Febuary and really indulged in my pregnancy cravings causing a drastic weight gain. In 2011 I want to not only get back to my healthy weight but maintain it by eating fresh, seasonal whole fruits and veggies, whole grains and utilizing more of the bulk foods section in the grocery store. Also by planning healthy family meals and cooking large amounts at once so I can package and refrigerate/freeze for the busy weekdays instead of pick up a pre-packaged preservative packed something to throw in the mircowave and call it good.

I am going on a diet. I am a 33yo male weigh 250lbs at 5'10. My wife is roughlt my same size. We are both going on a diet. No more fast food. We wish to eat healthy food. I am doing it for my 3 yo son. He needs a daddy that can run and play. Not stand and watch. Our son loves fruit. He would eat fruit over candy any day. I am proud that even though we are both big we are steering him the right way. Thank you for being in business. Thank you for the meal suggestions you provide via email! :) Have a good day. I know I am not going to win. There are already 9000 entries for 9 gift cards. I mainly just wanted to let someone know how you guys brighten our days. Even though this probably will not get read. :)

I love to cook, an also love to entertain. Over the past 10 or so years I have gradually phased out processed foods from my diet. I am also gluten sensitive, so that becomes a challenge. I love to try to make everything from scratch, but can't always find the necessary ingredients. That is why I go to whole foods. They have a well stocked, and great variety of gluten free products, that are just as good, if not better than products containing gluten!

We are eating fewer processed foods, less sugar and more organic products. We want to prevent health problems, especially with diabetes in our family.

Around September I fell ill to an unknown sickness. Several months later they discovered I had gallstones & an inflamed gallbladder! A week later I was without one at all! It has drastically changed me and my body (especially digestion!) and now I am trying to cope. I decided that I would make my life, and my tummy, better by treating it right and feeding it good, natural foods that will help make me well again!! It's been a struggle, as I cannot tolerate so many different foods that I am forced to go vegan, gluten-free and organic! While it has been a challenge, I am eating healthier now than ever before! I am still learning so many things about my new diet & my new life!!! My number one resolution for 2011 is to live HEALTHY & HAPPY! Of course between missing so much work from medical issues & having the medical bills (still) piling up, money can be an issue to make this happen!! This gift certificate would help temendously!! I hope everyone of you has a wonderful, successful, and healthy 2011!!!

My kids are 2 and 5 and have been brought up as "whole babies". We encourage healthy, organic eating. One fun thing we do is each trip we take to Whole Foods, I let my five year old pick out one new fruit or vegetable. The choice is hers, as long as its something new to her. Then we find a healthy recipe and as a family, we try it together. It's a great way to encourage kids to try new healthy foods.

I've recently gone on a vegetarian diet and couldn't be more happy with how I feel, how easy I have adjusted, and have found such great resources. Plus, Whole Foods makes it fun and easy to eat yummy, nutritious meals! Keep up the great work!

This year my goal is to prepare more raw meals for my son and I. I have looked into raw food recipes, but have not prpared many. My son is now two and has been eating organic from the beginning with green smoothies, tons of fruits and veggies and he is so healthy. He already eats some raw, but I would like to incorporate more meals that him and I can share together! I love having Whole Foods to turn to for amazingly fresh produce, great recipe ideas, supplements,the best 365 diaper wipes, cloth diapers, grass-fed beef, goats milk yogurt and much more. Thank you Whole Foods for offering so many amazing healthy products as well as obtaining team members who are so helpful and extremely knowledgable! 2011 will be a great year! Cheers to everyone's great health!

My husband is retired and I work full time. We still eat some animal protein, mostly chicken and fish, and I would like to be better versed in preparing meatless, quick cook evening meals. I live in Russellville and get to the LR location about once a month. I try to stock up on grains and beans to include in dinner dishes. I also make my own granola using grains and nuts from Whole Foods.

I eat very healthy now .. for about the past 10 years. I get my motivation from all the things I've learned over those years about what healthy AND unhealthy foods do in our bodies. And from wanting to teach my daughter about it, so that she develops healthy habits to take with her into adulthood. But I'd love to win this because I lead a weight loss program that teaches a healthy lifestyle as a means to losing weight and keeping it off. It'd be great if I could take one of my groups on a "field trip" to WF with one your Healthy Eating Specialists!

I am in the process of changing the way my family eats and shops. Having run across some research about where typical grocery food comes from, I was not happy with what I found. I have 3 children, and I want them to eat healthy meals and snacks...free of harmful byproducts. My husband and I are implementing an exercise routine into our life, and would like a healthy diet to go along with it. We have developed the habit of eating to fill up, rather than eating to nourish our bodies and are making great efforts to change these habits for ourselves and our children.

Eating more healthy organic greens, vegetables and fruit. Also, start cooking on a regular basis versus eating take out. I'm so thankful there is a Whole Foods within 60 miles of where I live. Organic is the best way to provide one's body with nutrition.

I cannot WAIT for the new Whole Foods to open in Wexford to shop for gluten-free products, organic yogurts and dairy products, fruits and veggies and your scrumptious fresh-made sausages from the fresh meat case. My pantry is looking forward to being healthier more often when I can get there several times a week. Welcome to the North Hills, Whole Foods!

Hi, My husband and I are retirees and shop at Whole Foods and love it. He has diabetes and has had heart surgery. We eat pretty healthy but could learn more. It would be great to know how to better save time shopping and have the help of a Healthy Eating Specialist to help even more with his health issues. Also budgeting would be of great help in this economy too. Our motivation comes from wanting to be as healthy as we can in our later years.

I'm diabetic and newly retired, so I definitely have to watch what I eat and how much it costs! I'd really like to learn more about foods that will help me balance my blood sugars and my budget. I'm ready for a remake!

I am currently on chemotherapy and am determined to give my precious body the foods it needs to be healthy and cancer-free. Organic foods - from oils to fruits and vegetables, to whole grain pastas, and more. These are the items I am trying to stock my pantry with. I love being able to go to the different bars (salad, hot foods) and being able to choose amounts I want, seeing all ingredients carefully listed. My motivation is my caring family and WF has inspired me to learn all I can about healthy living with the education they offer (Andi scores, how to cook and buy bulk foods, and much more). Thank you, WF, for your wonderfully inspiring information, newsletters, signs...everything!

In the past year I've been trying to eliminate processed foods and foods with artificial sweetners. I want to continue to eat more natural foods and I am trying to buy more often at stores like Whole Foods and Earthfare and local farmers markets. It has helped me to loose over 20lbs and that is my motivation to continue eating healthier.
