Fresh foods are key. Minimize meat intake. Cook 4+ nights a week. Love up the farmer's markets. Make my own bread. Plan my meals and shop often. :)

also, I plan on trying one new healthy recipe per week, preferably using a new ingredient. My first attempt will be okra or tempeh,can't decide.

Being a mid 30's single guy, shopping and cooking for myself gets tiring and just plain annoying. Not having the proper pantry essentials makes a big difference. I'm weeing off processed and any type of fast foods. Starting to cook more for myself and freeze the things I have eat later in the week. This in turn ( hopefully ) will make me feel better and turn over a new leaf. With a little help, I'm sure I'll succeed and make this year something new and exciting.

I am a marathon runner who follows a strict vegan diet. I am married to one of the biggest carnivores you will ever meet. He has been a good sport when it comes to trying new foods, and realizes that eating plant-based entrees can taste good! I would like to stock our pantry with some vegan staples to improve the health of both of us!

Full-time college student (of the mature-age variety), single mom to a very busy 11 year old, and living in a multi-generational household with my own 60+ mother has made for some not so great food habits developing over that last two years. I want my control back! I want my daughter to defy the odds and not develop a weight problem, health problems, and food issues. I want to protect my own health, my own body, and my sanity. I want to help my mother deal with her diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis, through healthy foods and good life choices. Whole Foods, you just may be a big part of the answer!

I want to try a new vegetable, if not every week, then once or twice a month. Got weirdly into celery root last November...want to keep exploring!

I cook all of our meals (we maybe go out once a week, usually on the weekend), and drink lots of water. Lots of water.

This year I plan to eat healthier by buying more organically grown fresh foods, eating less processed foods, and limiting the amount of juices and sodas I drink. Two of my close friends eat very healthy and exercise and they inspire me to eat right and continue to exercise everyday.

My husband and I have both been lazy in the last year and eating out entirely too much, as well as eating too much junk food. In 2011, we are both planning to eat more balanced meals (especially where fruits and veggies are concerned!) and eat more appropriate portions. I'd love to have a Healthy Eating Specialist show us how we can stock our pantry with diabetic and waistline friendly foods.

I want to start to be more conscious of what I'm putting into my body. My schedule makes if difficult for me to cook everyday so I tend to eat out several days per week. I want to be sure that what I'm taking in has a long-term benefit and not just something to fill me up for a few hours.

My husband and I have committed to eating healthier and getting moving. We make a grocery list with healthy recipes in hand and then go for it. We have great snacks lined up as well as great meal menus planned. Everyday we are committed to doing at least 30 minutes of some kind of exercise. But eating healthy is definitely our first plan of attack....

I plan to cut out most dairy and meat and eat a lot more veggies. I'm also going to do a lot more home cooking.

I will include more fruit and vegetables into my diet, and prepare them in a lot more simplier preparations so I add less fat / oils where its not necessary.

I'm significantly overweight, so instead of just dieting, I've decided to change my eating habits and activity routine. I've picked up yoga, am walking more and am eating more fruits, veggies, lean meats, drinking more water. I'm a fast food junkie, so I'm allowing myself these things but within moderation, so that I don't feel deprived. I'm constantly reading different health websites for exercise and recipe inspiration, so that I don't get bored.

We are drinking more water and eating less sugar and less processed foods.

Eat more plants, more whole grains, and more locally sourced foods. I'm also very intrigued by the "infestivore" idea.

We love our neighborhood Whole Foods in Tribeca and would love to have them makeover our pantry!

2011 is the year I will be cooking more meals and eating less processed foods... I usually try to eat healthy but I believe it is even better when you know where each ingredient comes from. What better way than to make it yourself! More fresh fruit & veggies!!!

Simply, avoiding processed foods as much as possible, making the time and effort to cook my own food. Also, incorporating more fruits and raw veggies into my everyday diet, and OF COURSE drinking more WATER!!

I'm vegan / raw, have been for about 6 months, and plan on sticking to it even moreso now. Processed foods do not and will never have a place in my life again! Hail to the produce and bulk sections at Whole Foods!
