I'm a college kid on a college budget, so this gift card would allow me to eat local/sustainable food, that I typically can't buy, without breaking the bank.

I liked "the little things" blog, and my local whole foods on facebook.

My favorite healthy recipe is the paleo barbecue sauce on this website http://paleodietlifestyle.com/homemade-paleo-condiments/.

This year I would use the $100 gift card for my family's Christmas dinner. Every year we have the same meal, turkey, mashed pototoes, mac n cheese, rolls, and gravy. It would be wonderful to be able to purchase cream from whole foods to make my own butter along with fresh whole wheat flour for the rolls, organic potatoes, and some delicious organic milk for Santa :)

I love this healthy recipe from Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet. Healthy Pumpkin Bread...mmmm

I usually cut the ingredients in half because this recipe makes 2 loaves. I also use walnuts instead of macadamian nuts
