One day last week, I was having just an absolutely terrible day. When I left work, I said to myself, "the only thing that is going to make me happy right now is Whole Foods..." and so I drove to WF, bought myself some flowers, walked around in the store, and hit up the hot bar and salad bar for dinner. I left the store and couldn't remember why I had been upset all day. True story! I cannot just point out one particular product because I love the entire store; its just an experience to me. But I do love love love the Vita Muffin Tops!

A premade quiche, some precut mixed berries, and Whole Foods organic coffee is the PERFECT way to start my Mother's Day.

I adore the Buffalo Bleu Chicken Burgers from the meat department. Add a little Beso del Frego BBQ sauce on a whole wheat bun, and call it a day. My hubby and I will be BBQ'ing these up for Mother's Day dinner with our daughter. We love to take her to Whole Foods. She enjoys waving and saying "Hi" to everyone we encounter. The cheese deparment is always ready with great suggestions for a 15 month old with a pretty sophisticated cheese palate.

I love the fresh and organic fruit. YUM!!!! I you really can't go wrong with a picnic lunch from the deli counter. There is so much stuff it's hard to choose. I usually go for the brown rice sushi.

I know my mother would love some of the Fair Trade flowers, the excellent in-store marinated goat cheese on some mini toasts and some Pinot Grigio from the wine section. Or you can always get some soaps, or the handmade candles if a food gift is not your thing.

Most moms I know are in need of supplements and vitamins, but do not take the time nor the money to care for themselves properly. Fish Oil, vitamin D, combined with a good book on supplements might be odd as a gift, but certainly mom would see the benefits of caring for herself. BONUS>>>> She will think of you DAILY as she takes her supplements!! Maybe you can also a candle to the gift bag.

I LOVE my reusable Whole Foods lunch box. A few of my other favorite things are the whole catch line (especially the tuna), the vast selection yummy cheeses, and all the local goodies (like produce and my favorite, the gelato). On the flip side, what's not so great - or green - is having to go all the way to Dallas... I do wish you'd open a location in Fort Worth! (Hint! Hint!)

I like that I can buy items in your regular grocery sections that are marked gluten free or I can read the ingredients and easily tell myself and know I'm safe. I wish you had more gluten free products in your already prepared foods section that are gluten free or at least label the ones that are. Sometimes celiacs need to grab a meal on the run too!

What I love best about Whole Foods is the fresh and delish fruits and veggies...Always wonderful...so a perfect mothers day lunch for me would be Sonoma Chicken salad from the deli and fresh fruit...oohhh yummy...and maybe some fresh lemonade...That with my two beautiful kids would be heaven!

I buy oats from the bulk bin for budget- friendly homemade granola. My family enjoys the Sigg bottles we purchased at Whole Foods. It's great that we each could choose a design that suits our style. I love shopping at the chocolate section of the store... so many wonderful choices. There isn't a Whole Foods close by, so my family drives about an hour for the variety and quality Whole Foods Market provides.

I would love to have a WHOLE FOODS STORE near me! As it stands I travel about 45 minutes to get to your store :( I would love it if you opened a RESTAURANT along with the store as I would definitely EAT there before shopping! Would make the drive a bit easier to take! :) thanks !

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win as well as for the pod cast! It was so helpful and informative! I actually learned about some new products! As a Mom of 3, 2 toddlers and a teen, I need variety! And I get it at whole foods!! It is my home away from home, I go there not only to shop, but to decompress and escape. I love to just walk around the flowers and the produce section for a quick pick me up. My must haves for me are the whole trade flowers, preferably Lilies & Orchids, Organic Chocolate & Red Wine. I Loove the wine selection! As for my girls, Stonyfield yogurts,365 cereal bars & mini blueberry waffles and my teen loves the bath & beauty section! Thanks again Whole Foods for being Earth conscious and Family friendly:)

Generally love the store but wish you would do a better job of carrying local produce and cutting out the produce that is out of season and being shipped half-way across the world!

Whole Foods has made my life as a mom easier. My son was born with a milk/soy allergy and I don't know how he would have survived without you guys!! People asked me all the time "What on earth can the poor kid eat!?" And my response "A lot! You'd be surprised at what you can find at Whole Foods." Two of my son's favorites are Good Karma Organic Chocolate Rice Milk and Nana's Oatmeal cookies. Plus, my husband and I love that Sunday Morning Bacon and all the good cheeses you have. And, I can't pass the pizza without taking a slice home, so good!! Getting hungry now.

Since this will be my wife's 'first' Mother's day (baby Z officially arrives in August!) - I am thinking an organic bouquet of flowers and then a something organic I can use to to do a thorough house-cleaning for her while she rests followed up with some delicious take-away Indian food from the hot bar....

I will be very glad to see your Schaumburg store open next summer. Wish it had been Spring 2009 as originally planned. I will be able to shop your fresh fruit section more often!

I love everything! The 365 pizza is the best! As well as many of the prepared foods when you are in a rush. I also think the quality of fresh fruit and vegetables is fantastic!

I love shopping at Whole Foods Market, since moving to Louisville, KY. There was not one where we lived previously. I have three daughters that I would like to feed as healthy as possible and your store make that all possible. My middle daughter at the age of 18 months old was diagnosed with allergies to milk (of any kind including whey by products) and red dye of any number (40 and 33 especially), she is now four years old. Whole Foods Market makes it easier as well as possible to feed her. She alone eats such products as the 365 pasta mixed with organic red tomatoes and olive oil; the organic blueberry waffles; the mini vanilla waffles; and the Earth's Best product line! As she lives her life hopefully she will be able to start to eat other things, but we are thankful to this, it has started us to eat healthier and hopefully ingrained a love for organic foods. We have found changing over to organic foods not only for the sake of our daughter (more preservatives add to her allergies) but for the sake of our health has been costly and expensive in places but WHOLE FOODS MARKET MAKES THAT ALL POSSIBLE!!!! Thanks so much.

I love the baby/kid section as it has a selection of diapers and pull-ups that saved my son's sensitive skin from chemicals that caused nasty reactions. The gDiapers were amazing as a combination reusable & disposable since I don't have access to a washer/dryer in my apartment. Full disposables weren't an option and the gDiapers really were a great alternative for making this mom's life easier. We also enjoy the 365 Everyday Organic frozen mini blueberry waffles for breakfast in the morning. I know we're starting out a busy day with a quick and healthy breakfast. Then at the end of a long day, I indulge in some of the Vosges chocolate. As a single mom, this is truly an indulgence of the best kind! And if you haven't tried their Mo's Bacon Bar, you should. Sounds weird, tastes amazing!

Whole Foods is my all around #1 choice for shopping. My kids ages 21 & 25 also have become dedicated Whole Food shoppers and that certainly says something!! My choice for Mothers Day gifts would be anything from the FABULOUS Dr Hauschka's line of skin care. The creams are superior! You can see a difference immediately after using these products. I'm hoping for some this Mothers Day!

For family gatherings, I need options for the children with food allergies. Whole foods has alphabet shaped french fries without egg or dairy that are a hit with the young kids. There are also egg and dairy-free waffles for a Mother's Day brunch. A fresh fruit salad is always great, too!
