My goal is to cook more at home this year and plan meals a week at a time. I would like to prep beans and rice from the bulk department once a week and use them every day in different recipes. My ultimate goal is to include more plant based proteins and limit my intake of dairy products and animal proteins.

We eat little processed food and rarely go out or have fast food. It really helps that my husband loves to cook and can make anything. Oh and that Whole Foods is within walking distance really helps too!

No more processed anything, and only locally grown organic produce for me.

I plan to start eating more fish - and the fish I cannot eat - I will supplement by using Fish Oil / Omega 3 Supplements !

Clean eating for the win! Less eating from boxes, bags, and "add water" foods. More fresh food shopping. Uncooked, raw, fresh...anything that's in the produce section.

I tend to have trouble cooking meals - I work full time and am also a full time grad student so time is very limited. I do not know what is good to grab and go so normally dinner consists of cheese and crackers. I need some serious help in the cooking area :)

I plan on cutting out sweets and starches and eating more vegetables. My motivation comes from my friend who has lost lots of weight and is much healthier with a change in her lifestyle.

I've decided to go vegetarian this year, so I'm looking forward to more fruits, vegetables and healthy eating.

Eat even closer to home - restaurants are great, but shouldn't make up a large amount of my diet.

I just moved next to a Whole Foods, and I'm really excited to start buying more healthy things!

I want to adapt my diet so I don't get so tired during the day. I'm not a junk food eater, but think my glucose levels are really effecting my energy levels.

Our family has unwittingly been poisoned for over five years by mold toxins behind the walls of our home. We've lost our home and have lost our health, and 2010 was the worst year we can remember. We went to an environmental medicine physician, and she has recommended a LOT of changes including supplements, whole foods, and a gluten-free, dairy-free diet. We're just beginning to make all these changes, and we're happy for any help we can find in making healthful changes so that our bodies have optimal nutrition as they begin the healing process. Implementing gluten-free, dairy-free foods at home is one issue. But how do I make those items so appealing to five-year-old and eight-year-old kids that they won't be trading away their healthful foods at lunch??

I plan to stick to more organics - especially fruits and veggies, cut meat intake and obtain more protein from nuts, soy and other sources, cut back on coffee, cut out diet pop and avoid any white processed flour wherever possible!

Stop eating meat! I've felt much better since I've made the change myself :)

I have recently become a vegan and feel I am missing the "back to basics" ingredients. An opportunity to have pantry staples would be amazing. This is a great opportunity and idea!

my motivation comes from wanting to eat what makes me feel good and gives me energy. i'll focus on clean healthy food that allows me to remain active and gives me the engery that makes we want to be active. i just want to feel good and stay of food that makes me tired or sluggish.

Cook more. Eat out less!

I already eat gluten free, but I could do a LOT better in trying to find more recipes than I can make on my own instead of always resorting to take-out from (albeit healthy) restaurants. I find motivation in the way that I feel when I eat healthy! I love going to Whole Foods or my local farmers market to find really great finds...but it's the actual preparation that is the difficult part!

I need help making healthy choices. I am a grabber kind of eater, and when I shop, I tend to pick up items that are easy to grab, which usually aren't best things to have on hand... sweets, salty/crunchy, pre-boxed, ready made etc. I need to start buying healthy to be able to eat healthy!

We're trying to eat more raw foods, whole grains vice white bread and rice and all snacks are fruit based. Wish us luck and no tempting chocolate or salty things.
