Need to get healthier for the sake of my children. I need healthy alternatives for them and I must figure out a way to getthose veggies in them somehow!

I am a vegetarian, who would like to learn about a more responsible, cruelty-free and sustainable way to enjoy eating while getting the nutrition I need. Aspiring toward vegan diet with possible modifications.

I am honestly not great about eating enough veggies and fruits, so this year I am making a commitment to adding more of them into my diet every day. I am committed to losing weight this year as well, so this adding in healthier foods has already helped with that! Thanks.

I'm eating less carbs, 100 or less per day, and walking 1 hour on weekdays. I am motivated by losing weight for my engagement photos.

I would like to eliminate sugar from my diet. This includes evaporated cane juice, agave, maple syrup, brown rice syryp, stevia, and other forms of "healthy" sugars. All sugars are unhealthy, have empty calories, and only stimulate a craving for more sugar.

I enjoy shopping at the Bridgeport store where everyone is friendly and I get to see old friends I had the pleasure of working with in the natural foods business. The 365 brands are great, and the specials are pretty hard to beat. I eat as natural as I can and find it sad that conventional stores carry so much junk and that families are feeding their kids on it hence overweight kids. If they could get reasonable priced foods at Whole Foods that fit them, I think they would change their shopping habits.....

Beginning January 1, 2011 I have completely eliminated High Fructose Corn Syrup from my daily food intake. I am shopping and cooking completely organic and it has been a BLAST!! Every meal for my family is made completely from scratch. Grocery shopping now takes almost an entire Saturday afternoon but the health benefits are well worth the shopping around that I need to do. I already feel so much better than I did 4 weeks ago - again, well worth the benefits of completely eliminating High Fructose Corn Syrup!!

We're trying to get more nuts into our diet (preferably raw and with no salt) so my husband and I are coming up with creative ways for all of us (we have two six yr olds) to reach for the nuts instead of the traditional, less healthier snack foods. And of course, always working on ways to get raw veggies into their diet!!!

I have gained a lot of weight since my father passed away of a massive heart attack. January 25th was the 3 year anniversary of his passing and I decided that I have to improve my health (my dad would want me to take better care of myself). Changing the way I eat is big part of that process. I am trying to eat fewer processed foods. I'm also trying to experiment with different cooking techniques. I have also been making sure that I eat 5+ servings of fruits and vegetable each day. Whenever possible, I'm buying organic products. Whole Foods is a great place to help me abide by these rules.

My husband and I are trying to eat healthier now that our son is starting to eat solid foods. We want him to grow up eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and less processed foods.

My husband and my weight have been slowly creeping higher over the last few years. We are busy and often fall victim to unhealthful but oh-so-easy convenience food and take out. With the new year we both finally took a look at how our unhealthy habits and increasing waist lines could affect our health in the future. My husband's family has a history of diabetes and mine has a history of heart disease. Our goals to improve our health include eating more whole foods, with lots of seasonal fruits and veggies, and a lot less processed foods. I would like to be more green and more control of what we are eating so I have been making more of our foods (like bread and granola) from scratch. I have been spending a lot of time researching recipes and new ingredients to keep me motivated. Its been almost a month and we are still going strong with our healthy goals and I am very proud of us!

I am trying to get my husband and children to try and appreciate new tastes and new foods such as quinoa. I want to teach my children good nutrional habits while they are still young. We are also experimenting and making a variety of "green smoothies". My children have a sticker chart...after making and drinking 15 smoothies (one per day) they receive a reward. Its so wonderful when your child actually asks for his/her smoothie.

I have been trying to eat healthier, started the Diet Solution Plan. I've been trying different recipes. Love fresh free range eggs and spinach for breakfast. Looking for more options and recipes... Don't have the money to really go all out like I would like. Love to bake fresh bread, need access to sprouted grains so I can start that. Dark Chocolate recipes, fresh whole milk from grassfed cows... the options are varied, but the $$ is limited...need help putting it all together. presently have herbs and spices, teas without bags, mix my own spices for cooking. Variety is the spice of life.

With a teenager in the house, we tend to go through a lot of junk food. However, I've been making a lot of "junk food" at home... baking cookies with less sugar and more fruit, granola bars with honey and nuts as opposed to sugar and chocolate, and thinly sliced baked potato "chips".

My grandmother and mother both passed away from early onset Alzheimer's. In an effort to be healthier and reduce inflammation caused by processed food additives, I have started trying to focus on a whole food diet. I am hoping to create an reduced risk for memory loss for myself, my daughter, and the rest of our family as a whole foods role model.

Sugar is my downfall. I am eating more protein in the morning. Whenever I feel like sugar I reach for more protein or veggies

I have been trying to eat healthier since 2008. I have been trying to eat more greens and grains and just eat red meat twice a month. I really love going to Whole Foods for their organic produce, grains and meats and seafood. Would really love to win the gift card and shop there more often.

One of the goals I set for 2011 was to try cut out as much processed food as I could and to cut back on sugar. I hope to do this my cooking more and using the local farmers market.

Hello- I have started eating more healthy foods and I have found that my taste buds are thanking me as well as my hips. I have incorporated quiona, wheatberries, etc. and I am amazed at how filling they are. I would use the gift certificate to continue on my journey!! Thanks - Erica
