  • Definitely trying the cauliflower hummus & and chocolate hummus. I will never have to purchase them in the store again! Thx for the recipes!!

  • Mind over munch. I your video you say there is a link to down load your humus cook book, but I add my email address and as said to. Next thing it says is. I have to pay for it. Why. Thought it was free as you say in here?

  • Is your guilt free eating plan all hypothyroid friendly?! I haven’t been diagnosed but pretty sure that’s what my body is going through and I want to make the right changes.

  • Whether or not the “purists” want to call these “hummus” or not, they all look and sound delicious and would fit right in with my household. I’m definitely going to try them. Thanks for the e-book! ��

  • None of these are technically considered hummus…they’re just dips. Especially if you don’t use chick peas, then it’s really not hummus it would be a bean dip with different flavors

  • Omg!! So many great ideas!! They all look so delicious! I definitely am going to try the chocolate hummus first! Thank you so much for all of these creative hummus recipes!!��❤��

  • Wow! Those look so delicious! I’ll be trying the green goddess and the chocolate ones. Thank you for always coming up with yummy recipes.

  • This was great, thanks, I have been researching “calories in baked chicken” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Giyatthew Vanharlotte Release (do a google search )? It is a good exclusive product for building body strength minus the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my cousin at very last got amazing success with it.

  • The biggest thank you to everyone who messaged me on Instagram after my accident this week ♥️ Luckily I only needed a few stitches in my hand, and everyone at the hospital was amazing at helping me calm down and deal with the shock ��

    Mario and I are going extra slow and extra careful at the moment while we heal up but we’re ok! �� Love ya!

  • I’ve been thinking of getting your Restart guide, but I don’t have access to a (corona-safe) gym. I do have some resistance bands at home. Is access to a gym required for the Restart guide, or could I still do (most of) it at home as well?

    My regular routine has been too much for me lately, I’m quite overweight and have asthma, so I really need to take it slow to start up again…

  • i was wondering how you looked even more beautiful than before and I think it’s the lack of fake lashes!! love your content as always!!

  • FANTASTIC tips here! So adding ALL of them! Like ASAP! But can we just appreciate Katie’s hoodie here? How cute is this, obsessed! ��

  • Jesus Christ is soon to return! We need repentance! Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost! Acts 2:38 Admit to God you are a sinner, ask Him for forgiveness, believe Jesus death on the cross paid the full penalty for your sins and your soul will be saved.Gods judgement is near!✝️

  • I love how the shaking largely was part of the food porn lol getting naughty in the kitchen lol I also find it funny how u two are like an old couple in young bodies given u have pack pain and Mario has crutches due to knee pain.

  • I would be really interested in seeing an in depth vid of the movements/activity you do while healing your back to pick up some tips ❤️❤️

  • THANK YOU FOR THIS, NATACHA! I’m currently stuck in a rut with my nutrition, and I’m looking to switch things up. These recipes are amazing, can’t wait to try them! ��

  • your meals look always amazing, and the editing, the vlog style… ahhh I love your videos so much�� You are an inspiration❤️ Hope your back gets better quickly��

  • Have you ever experienced having problems with your periods due to intense workouts? It s a problem that I have for almost 3 years now, and the only remedy I get from my gynec is taking birth control pills. I am concerned cause this doesn t really resolves my problem it s temporary. I am curious if you or anybody else ever confronted this problem

  • Natacha thank you for everything! Your videos I found like 3 weeks ago and I watched all of them and they pulled me out of a fitness funk!!!! I upped my calories and it worked! I’ve been using ALL your teachings! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!❤️ I almost screamed when I saw you made a new video!

  • Lovely presentation & video editing skills! �� And the meals & snacks are so balanced (not restricted in any way). I really enjoyed watching and feel so inspired now❤️

  • Iv just done my first run in a long time and need to loose 8 pounds in 4 weeks. Also can u help me drink water as Iv been drinking orange since I was born. Any tips?

  • I love love love this video! Real, enthustiastic and honest. So much respect to you and mario, you guys are putting so much effort and thought in every single video. Hopefully you back injury will get better soon! lots of love,
    a dear fan

  • You’re so pretty without makeup.
    Please look into the environmental impact of eating avocados, they are terrible for our beautiful planet. ��

  • I loooove always find the animations on the video so hilarious, and the “Breaking News” was no exception! hehe much love from Portugal!

  • 14:07& 14:14 that looks like the scene in the german netflix show Dark where young Adam is talking to his crush in front of the lake. It looks like the exact same location

  • I was kind of resenting watching this video, because my eating choices have been more than not ideal in the last couple of weeks. But now that I did, I’m reallyyyyy happy, because it motivates me and makes me want to get my life back together again:)

  • I always love watching you guys, but this video came at such a good time for me as I started intuitive eating again. I love how varied and fresh your meals are. One of my favourite things was seeing you train in baggy t-shirts and no makeup, though! I’m so used to seeing YouTubers look perfect while training, and it’s really refreshing to see you just being normal lol:)
    Hope you guys are recovering ok! xoxo

  • I’ve never seen one of your videos before, but super impressed with your editing skills. I need to up my game!!! Also your food looks gorgeous and colourful ��

  • Ok…. there’s, like…. a thousand comments and no doubt mine will be lost is the shuffle, but wanted to say I’m a new subscriber and I absolutely love your channel. Heal well to both of you (I don’t know the cause of your injuries) and I look forward to more videos!

  • There’s me only allowing myself to eat plain cereal like porridge and weetabix with no sugar so I don’t gain yet here u are having crunchy nut and sugary cereals like am I missing something coz I’d love to eat coco pops it’s been a while lol

  • Adding cumin to yogurt OMG, that is the most unexpected combination….Cumin in Asian food is only added to lamb or beef, NEVER dairy!!!

  • I am 19, I workinout from 14. It’s fukin boring. Atleast for me. My mom does it. Some situations I have to myself. But I hate. It’s irritating

  • This is just sad.

    Guys, don’t abuse your taste buds, there’s no need to eat tasteless food, it isn’t expensive at all to add flavour. And we need variety, please don’t force yourself to eat the same food everyday, life’s too short, and you deserve a bit of variety.

  • Well I’m allergic to chickpeas so I really don’t care if people think it’s hummus or not. Haters can hate and I am still going to call it hummus and eat it.

  • My mates at work have tried also this specific diet and were able to slash over 13lbs. They said to me to have my exploration way too and find out about it. Right after I tested the weight, I have dropped FIFTEEN lbs. Find a right guide is not easy, you can research by Google. Guide’s name is under.

    good luck

  • Why bother to cook the broccoli? You’re likely microwaving to heat it up. Cook it WITH the chicken in the grill pan… otherwise. good stuff.

  • I am on 2nd minute of video and yes, exactly what I was looking for:) Since I know few things about cooking, but I am looking for some more things cuz I want to make meals for 7 days cuz I like to eat healthy and homemade but not to spend to much time in the kitchen:) So far so good:) Great

  • Soak your brown rice for at least a half hour. Cooks better. Also, why boil broccoli? Toss it into the chicken fat and grill it.. taste amazing.

  • never eat or drink anything in plastic when it is hot or even warm. the heated plastic will put microscopic particles of POISON into the food or liquid

  • So how do you meal prep if you hate i mean HATE ABSOLUTELY HATE eating the same thing more than once in a week. I mean i absolutely have to eat something different every single day in a week no if or butts otherwise i will binge or starve i seriously will not suck it up it has to be variety. Do you have videos on this????

  • SHOCK the brocolli with COLD WATER when its done to retain the crispy texture and bright green color, this applies to all veggies that you cook to keep it al dente before storage… great video man thanks!

  • First video I watch from this channel and I am suscribed…loved how they just jumped into it and didn’t make a long annoying video where you have to skip������������

  • well sorry.. but there is no way.. this is mealprep for 7 days.. its meal prep for like 3 days.. you cant tell me you mealprep 7 meals with arroud 400kcl.. for 1 DAY

  • im more of a fan of getting 500grams of pasta and premade 300gram pasta sauce and then just eating that for dinner. and buy it again the next day

  • Well this was timely, I just bought tahini! I’m super excited to try the pizza hummus. I hope one of these recipes converts my little kiddos to hummus, cuz I LOVE it on so many things. I like to use it in place of mayo on my sandwiches and cover and bake chicken. Anyone else have ways they like to use hummus? Looking for some new ideas.

  • On super motivated days is when I like to grocery shop and try to only buy healthy things for dinner and snacks. Then you are sort of forced to eat what you have at home..if you don’t, it goes bad and you’ve wasted your money.

  • Natacha, you’ve really helped me a lot and I need to thank you so much:) You helped me recover from anorexia, bulimia and binging. You explain everything perfectly to me. When I heard you said I had to increase my calories to build my metabolism, I was so scared but I decided to try it and am now recovering. Still a long way to go, but I know It’ll be so worth it. Thanks again!

    love to make a name for myself in fitness industry. I want to show people that
    anyone can do fitness. So if you could check out my channel and hit the
    subscribe bottom it would mean the world to me

  • Crowding out is a great tip! My husband and I bought really pretty salad plates and we both grab those at dinner time. Only problem, he goes back for seconds����

  • I have a super sweet tooth but I never go crazy. People are always asking me how do you stay skinny if you love your sweets, my one trick is to have them there but only eat one whenever you have that craving. You eat one, that craving goes away and you are fine. A lot of people have a misconception that you need to eat five cookies or all of the package to feel satisfied but now you are all out and with a guilt of eating everything. Everything in moderation is the key ��.
