  • Kiki has great ideas. But people. Please check out the foods you eat. Cinnamon in large amounts can be dangerous to some people. Do your research for yourself, there are 2 kinds of cinnamon also. Kiki would tell you to check it for yourself & do what is best for you.

  • So busy life set me back a few days but I’m not waiting to start on sunday. Another day lost is just putting off or putting on lol my weight. Today I’m doing it! Just to be clear this is lunch n dinner? N how many packs of Turkey is there? Is there a breakfast u did on this weeks meal prep? N just wondering if there was a way I could email u any questions I may have in the future? Thanks again

  • Love your content Hannah!! The more veggies the better imo. I love fruit but believe in balance. You are amazing.. You have carved out a great life to be proud of. Enjoy your house plans and get a way…

  • Ooooh! Love the savory hash idea for breakfast! I’m so hungry right now, lol! I will have to try it. My husband actually just made an Eat More Weigh Less video on my channel too. He made pasta with garlic chickpea bread. We basically eat this way all the time just as our regular diet. And it’s really so easy to stick to. Glad to see so many other people doing it too!:)

  • was it tough to transition to eating non-starchy for breakfast? I normally eat oatmeal with fresh berries and/or banana. The thought of chowing down on greens first thing doesn’t sound very appealing. Does it just take getting used to?
    Thanks:)

  • Come say that when you are 50. When I was young I lived off meat. And I was healthy, well, at least on the outside. But when I turned mid 40’s, I started having health problems. I cut out all animal products, and now I’m healthy again. Meat heals autism? Prove it! Show me the scientific studies on it.

  • It all looks so delicious! Can I ask, where did you get your wooden plates and spoons? It makes the food look even more appetising. Love your channel, so inspiring ��

  • Chinese people eat lots of meat, just not in comparison to Americans, you apparently haven’t done research into what’s healthy but rather found sites that indulge you in your beliefs, It is known that some essential fatty acids cannot be obtained threw plants, and some vitamins cannot be found in animals, so you need both, granted you don’t need very much meat (Chinese vs Americans) but you still need it. Your not vegetarian, or any “arian” if you take supplements to avoid deficiencies.

  • Love your recipes! And your channel! Can you ladies come up with a good vegaN Ranch dressing/dip? I have yet to find a a very flavorful one:/ I cant seem to perfect it myself either.

  • If we produced less food then huge numbers of people would die off and the world would be a better place. We should go back to hunters and gatherers and the strongest would survive instead of the wimps that are being produced now. It’s too easy to live now.

  • Animals these days are injected or fed B12. So when you eat meat, you’re getting B12 supplements. We all used to get it naturally from the soil and water, before the agri and meat industries ruined the soil.

  • Kiki, Curious if you experienced detox aches at beginning? Like joint pain? Or anyone else doing starch solution have detox. I had to stop, read up on the pain and thought it may be the solanine in potatoes from eating so many.
    I went to a full raw vegan diet without potato, and got joint pain from detox….
    Then I realized that maybe others get starch solution detox �� and its not due to so much potato.
    Anyone else experience??

  • Hi Kiki! Great recipes for breakfast. I can’t wait to try them out. Can you please share where you bought the wood dinner plate and bowl? They’re great!
    Thanks.

  • Wow, just wow. I’m so glad you mentioned oatmeal. My weight has steadily start going back up since adding oatmeal again into my life. Admittedly, I have an unhealthy relationship with soft bread like grains. Not only do I tend to over eat oats, but they cause pain and extreme bloating in my stomach. Lol, I’m usually willing to endure the pain for the taste. I really don’t feel like it’s a health food that I personally should eat frequently.

    Sweet potatoes and brown rice allow me to feel the signal when full. I can’t just eat one bowl of oat meal and feel satisfied unless I have fruit with it. Now that I know it has a higher amount of fat and same for quinoa, I’m going to avoid them for right now.

    I use to think it was the sweet taste that I was after but maybe it is the fat.

  • I have just recently subscribed and love your videos! I have a question…how do I get used to eating veggies in the morning. I mean….I love breakfast. I have oatmeal everyday…the idea of adding veggies…is just not appetizing to me. Is it necessary to eat veggies with breakfast? Although..the sweet potatoes might actually work.

  • Love the eat-your-veg-challenge. The beauty of the 50:50 plate is its simplicity. However, I always wonder where fruit is positioned. On which side do I count it?

  • Hey, Sarah Lynn, have you thought about recording your recipes “Tasty style”? Your healthy cooking with easy normal ingredients needs to find more people!!

  • Also, I found the frozen hash browns at Walmartgood price and great suggestion from you and Hannah. Unfortunately I won’t be able to use them as they “may contain traces of milk and soy” milk traces are not a big deal for me although I am allergic but not as bad as soy ☹️. So sad. I have been eating some instant potatoes with water and veggie broth cubes and frozen veggies as my fast food while trying to get big tasks done as I am feeling overwhelmed.

  • Also, I was watching/ listening while during chores to Mary McDouggall on cooking this way. You follow many of her tips from what I saw so far. Had to stop to feed the baby…no subtitles. Will watch again. �� i appreciate your use of subtitles btw!

  • I made your streusel steel cut oats for breakfast and had a side of kale with mandarin orange and the dressing was so delicious!! Thanks Kiki❤️

  • Hey there new to your channel, and just want to thank you for the helpful tips and meal prep etc, am feeling a lot more prepared for this weight loss journey/ lifestyle change, i appreciate it. Have a question though; do the roasted veggies taste ok if you freeze them and eat them at a later date, just wondering. Thx

  • Hello Im new to your channel. You are simply amazing �� ❤. Im new to this lifestyle, had a scary life changing diagnose 2yr ago( Breast CA Surrovior). Haven’t order the book yet just following you. My question is, is there a healthy desert that can be added to the 50/50. Still fighting my sweet tooth. Im never hungry but crave a little something something midday. Any suggestions.

  • Love the quinoa salad recipe! I’ve been on a quinoa kick since its so easy for lunch! Any chance on a video of just different quinoa salads? Thanks again!

  • I guess I’m a little weird, because root veggies are my favorite!! I definitely don’t eat them enough though. Your recipe looks delicious (and beautiful.)
    I will be trying this for sure!

  • You guys all do the same stuff from the book you recommend.nothing you guys is new.you just inspiration but this foods ideas are from the program.i see all the recipes in the starch program. You all three eat the same stuff and make the same things. People just need to eat well and less meat everything in moderation. But indeed less meat and more veggies for me. Everything gets so popular in this times. The key is to do what you like and recipes I make with my own seasoning and my own taste is what people needs to do.there is no science to it.

  • I love love love you and your channel. You inspire me to be healthy! I found you and started on journey during COVID and working from home. I’ve lost 15 pounds so far, but I am now back in the office and finding it hard to translate this way of eating into working outside the home. I would love to see a video with tips for maintaining starch diet while working outside of the home! I eat breakfast and lunch during my work day. Thank you!!!

  • I am so grateful for all these videos. Mr. Pollan, you have really helped me to learn a lot more about nutrition and the situation in our food supply, although I was already fairly well educated. And a LOT of people WILL stop eating that garbage when we know the facts; it certainly has changed my way of eating!!!

  • I live in Brazil and theres no such thing as a public talk on abortion and birth control; poor people keep breeding more poor people, and middle class is forced to bear the pay, in here favelas are almost a reason for pride…I lost my hopes

  • sooo easy to follow -yum I went and got the cherries from whole-foods( they are bomb ) thanks for all u do can’t wait for ur next vid!!!

  • Awesome!
    I did write earlier as well as I wanted to have a conversation with you.
    Thanks for sharing your life style, it has really helped me. I went from a standard Indian to indo American diet( I’m an Indian) to vegetarian to vegan and then full on nutritarian.
    But Kiki when I saw your channel and your transformation and the least amount of time to prep, I was blown away. I cook like this just for my self… and enj all…. lol. I have my husband jumping on the wagon with me.
    I got the book, I follow your channel, because I just love rice and potatoes.
    Thanks for all that you do to inspire!!!
    All the best for your book!

  • I love the oatmeal…I have been eating this way for about a month, and just cannot bring myself to eating all those veggies in the morning. I do shred an entire zuchinni into my oatmeal, but that is as far as I get.

  • lol! meat heals autism? I think if you were to do some research into currant nutritional evidence you would find an overwhelming amount of proof that any animal product (meat,fish,dairy,eggs) has a significant detrimental effect on our health, our bodies are not designed to eat meat nor cooked foods, yes if you eat doughnuts (lots of) you may have health issues as this is not a natural food but meat is the cause of many health related diseases, read the china study or watch forks over knives:)

  • I tried the Rocky Mountain peach and strawberry….omg I’m so glad I listened to you. These 2 flavors are amazing. Peach is not usually my top pick but they hit that one out of the park!! 10 out of 10 for sure on the peach, 9 out of 10 for the strawberry. I’m excited to try the hashbrowns, they look sooooo delicious.

  • Hi I really hope someone is able to answer this.
    Ive been eating the 50/50 plate mostly half veggies and half potatoes (usually baked) and then fruit but instead of losing weight im gaining it. Is this normal when one gives up animal products? (Im a pescatarian but have been plant based for about 3 weeks now)

  • This guy still has that whatever he had as a teen that just makes him funny. I remember I loved Ned’s Declassified, such a weird crazy show.

  • I have a question. To lose weight should I eat the same amounts of food as you do, or is that to maintain your weight loss? I have lost 24 pounds on the 50/50 plate but weight loss has stalled and I don’t know if I’m taking in enough calories. I usually eat between 1000-1050 a day. I love all your videos and the newest colab one is great! Thank you ��

  • This looks gorgeous. I don’t like beets although I know they are good for me. I have heard good things about the golden beets so I think I may try them this week for Easter dinner. Now that Chioggia beet is something totally different. I have never seen or heard of it. If I find one I will try it.

  • Tomatoes: I pop the skins off of them by dunking them in hot water, then cool (so I can handle them). Get the sees out and then cook them down takes awhile. Put them in a jar and freeze them if I’m not eating them right away. Then add seasoning as wanted later. Warning: you won’t like canned tomatoes after having them like this.

  • I’ve mentioned it before, but I prefer my root veggies grilled. Cut into rounds, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil. I usually let them sit for 1/2 an hour to an hour to marinade and let the salt pull out some moisture (helps with getting a crust). Then I grill them on high heat for grill marks (searing) and then on medium for about 20 minutes, flipping and shifting them around to different spots on the grill. I also use a grill pan for whole button mushrooms, cubed squash/zucchini and quartered onions at the same time. Nice and soft on the inside, crispy and smoky on the outside…yum! I need to try carrots some time this summer. Turnips are awesome this way!

  • Hi Hanna
    I have bought all your books which are great. I would love to start this lifestyle to loose weight but I’m a diabetic and was wondering if you have any advise on how to approach this if diabetic. The starch is my concern as it will spike my blood sugar levels…

  • Dear Michael Pollen where do I find your joie-de-vivre? I’ve become an old fart picking up other ppl’s rubbish in our Sydney National Parks. I can’t stand the look of multinational brands like McD, Coke, KFC littering the planet.

  • I have about 100 cucumbers coming in! Looks like I’m going to be juicing, shredding and chopping them into every one of my daily meals (no complaints) ��

  • I just found your channel & you are such a lovely person!! I saw a video where you said you were struggling to get pregnant & just wanted to tell you to not give up hope.
    I was told that I wouldn’t be able to have children when I was around 19. I had poly cystic ovaries & they use to rupture (more painful than child birth! haha)
    Me & my boyfriend had been having unprotected sex for more than 2 years & then I became pregnant! It was a week after my 21st birthday & during this time I wasn’t looking after my body at all. I was smoking soooo much & barely eating anything.
    She’s my little miracle.
    The day after I found out I was pregnant I started bleeding loads & went into hospital. The doctor told me i was having a miscarriage. They said that I needed to come back in a few days so they could make sure everything had passed. I went back a few days later & they found a heartbeat!

    Don’t lose hope. It will happen when you least expect it xxx

  • I know you must be a very busy lady but if you can find the time to answer this I would really appreciate it. I am new to this way of eating and I am an older woman and I cant exercise like I used to. Will I still be able to lose weight by eating this way? Perhaps when I drop a few pounds I can get back to exercising. That is the hope! Thank you for all of you great informative videos. I appreciate your efforts.

  • Hannah please don’t feel so awkward.I think everything you say flows very well and that you come off very well spoken! I just hope you give yourself a lot of love and try not to be too hard on yourself.

  • I roast root veggies often to help get my veggies in. I usually only make/mix 2 or 3 at a time and often toss onions along with them and sometimes squash. I do yams separate. And the parsnips and beets do make good horns and googly eyes!

  • @Merryrobin
    Excellent practice… This is the halal method of slaughter. Unfortunately people do not understand the halal method of slaughter and many slaughterers do not follow the correct method of halal slaughter. In a nutshell it is exactly how you described the process. Livestock need to be cared for and kept healthy. When time to slaughter, should be done quickly & efficiently and mentioning the name of God at the time of the slaughter.

  • One thing i don’t understand is how is it going to be better if there is 30 million small farms serving 300 million people, versus 30 thousands big farms serving same 300 million people?
    Impact on environment may be same, or worse, and prices will be higher, and more people would need to go back to low-productivity, low-paying agricultural jobs. How is that better?

  • Awesome!:) And you’re getting so skiiiiny!! (I need to follow your advice. I gained 50 lb in a year because losing my gallbladder wrecked my digestive system, (and also I’m on corticosteroids for my lungs), so… both of those things are unkind to bodies trying to lose / maintain weight.) Love your content! Thank you for making more content, and inspiring all of us. ����❤️️

  • Love your content Hannah!! The more veggies the better imo. I love fruit but believe in balance. You are amazing.. You have carved out a great life to be proud of. Enjoy your house plans and get a way…

  • Kiki, you have great video’s but you used the word “Guys” 12 times… the word “Alright” 15 times, and the word “Again” 5 times in your 12:36 minute video.��

  • What air fryer do you use? Also in the cabbage recipe, what veggies did you put in (clear plastic tall container)? And what peeler was that you shed the carrots? �� sn: I’m a newbie to the vegan/plant based lifestyle.

  • You are an inspiration! I somehow found your channel about a week or so ago and can relate to your weight loss and being stuck no matter what you tried others did! I’m slowly now weaning off the meat and dairy and implementing your recipes which always look so amazing and yummy! �� Thank You!

  • I will definitely do this for my one year old baby and for myself of course������but I’m wondering if he can eat balsamic vineger at his age?

  • ty AJ for sharing all your knowledge with us, i have to say, i haven’t paid for anything, just following you on fb and IG, and YT. and all the dr’s you interview., i just finished watching, and sharing on my fb page, saying
    “this is long, but very informative, she is my hero, why i regained my health and mobility, got off 5 of my 6 meds, no more cane, the list goes on. It does sound drastic, and it might be, a little, at first, but, it is so delish, and then when u start feeling better, and just want to keep on, keeping on:))”

  • My beloved feline was black and her name was Jade! You brought back memories. I have all the ingredients for the quinoa and beet salad now! WOO HOO!

  • juicing isnt natural man.. also eating raw calciferous vegetables and other raw plants causes spontaneous death, cancers, organ failure and anemia in animals when there is nothing else for them to eat, so eating raw vegetables is actually very dangerous check out the studies online, imagine if you dropped dead because you were juicing cabbage greens or collard greens etc

  • Most communities have been eviscerated by industry and technology. The changes in the last 150 years have been bigger than changes for thousands, hundreds of thousands of years, for the way humans live and interact.

  • For those who need liberation from a nagging conscience now have their messiah in Pollan. He became canonized, “ethical ranchers” and “compassionate carnivores” became idolized, and not eating animals at all — a principled and logical response to the violence inherent in turning animated beings into butchered bodies — he helps us perceive as a naïve ideal.

  • Love to boil Yuca, boñato sweet potatoe, potatoe, name, and plantains then on a plate just drizzle with olive oil, lime and salt so good. will try this medley for sure

  • Just wanted to add, a lot of people from Georgia that might have been raised around Atlanta might not have the southern twang you look for in southern people, Atlanta and its suburbs can be extremely diverse.

  • I guess I’m a little weird, because root veggies are my favorite!! I definitely don’t eat them enough though. Your recipe looks delicious (and beautiful.)
    I will be trying this for sure!

  • My favorites are sweet potatoes and beets! Whenever I cook with beets I always manage to make my kitchen look like a murder scene lol! The red juice gets EEVERYYWHERE. Speaking of which, anyone who eats a large amount of beets for the first time should remember that when they take a trip to the bathroom, or they might end up really terrified (haha, happened to me). 
    AND SINCE YOU ASKED, my favorite way to eat root veggies is roasted in a medley like this OR, specifically, baked sweet potato, warm with almond butter melted on top and some cinnamon/maple syrup:))))))))

  • Such a great video! I learned a lot and now I won’t be scared to buy & try some root veggies other then carrots & sweet potato!:)

  • I’m making the pumpkin spice breakfast cookies right now! I LOVE your meal prep videos and this one is especially appealing to me because autumn is the bees knees. I would be in awe if you made a kitchen tour video, dying to see all of your spice collection!

  • Omg I got the carb solution book. I ate a baked potatoe last night for the first time in 10 years had 2 cups broccoli this morning first time ever I am loving this new way of eating ty

  • Didn’t know this channel existed. The 11 year old me is so hyped right now! Ned’s Declassified?! One of the most iconic shows of our childhood.

    I thought it was because we are consuming 2-6 times the daily amount of sodium, processed sugar, hydrogenated oils, and eating too much fried food.

    Stay stupid self-righteous vegans and vegetarians.

  • Love to boil Yuca, boñato sweet potatoe, potatoe, name, and plantains then on a plate just drizzle with olive oil, lime and salt so good. will try this medley for sure

  • Just tried the beet salad with goat cheese as I had some already in the fridge. SO GOOD! One could even say that it can’t be “beet”…? crickets

  • At first, I thought ”Why doesn’t he take off his backpack?” but later I realized it was like one of those leather pieces the gays use and what I thought sounded exactly like this yes 2:13 and this laugh 6:45 subsequently together!

  • Such a great idea! I usually make chips out of roots when I get that salty craving. plus the colors make it looks so pretty which makes kids love it as well:)

  • Chef AJ, you are such an incredible inspiration i just finished my first breakfast of steamed broccoli (yum) and mustard greens* (whaaaat?) and THEN drank the pot-liquor and I am a convert. I can’t wait for tomorrow so I can do it again! [*Mustard greens are not part of my food heritage bought a bunch because my grocer was completely out of kale. Tasted a piece of raw leaf while washing and stripping it from the stem and thought I had made a terrible mistake; really bitter with a weird after-taste. So, I tore up some leaves and threw them in the steamer with my broccoli because, at least I knew I’d like the broccoli. Steam-magic happened and took all the bitterness away from the mustard greens so tasty and lovely. This is my new breakfast go-to.] Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • @h2onitro Please elaborate, because your statement is obviously wrong. (I have education and voted this video up, so many other colleagues)

  • I hope you don’t ever feel bad about feeding your dog the way you need to keep Bailey healthy and alive! You’ve been vegan for over 40 years! You’re an educator for the PB movement. You do plenty!

  • This is a PSA to spell Devon’s last name correctly ( 1:25)! I’m blaming my editors for this one… Guess I’ll just have to have him back on again so they can get it right! Also, what do you guys think I should giveaway when I get to 500k subscribers?!

  • All of these look awesome! i was wondering if i could pour the hot soup staight into my nutribullet since i dont have an emersion blender. Will it break the blender since it is really hot?

  • Same here girl! I shred up purple cabbage every week in my veggie bullet and have it with everything! It’s so pretty, colorful, and delicious ��

  • I remember binging neds declassified everyday in the summer before middle school bc I thought it was like a real advice show and that that’s what’s its actually right. I was wrong, it did not help.

  • I remember going to downtown Tampa last year with my girlfriend really early in the a.m to grab something to eat and he was eating at Taco bus by himself. Of course I had to go in there and talk to him and tell him how i’m a fan. We talked for about an hour and a half before he had to leave. He’s a really chill dude and acts like this off camera as well. Buy BOY he talks a lot lmfao. Hope the best for him and wish his acting career turns around soon.

  • This guy still has that whatever he had as a teen that just makes him funny. I remember I loved Ned’s Declassified, such a weird crazy show.

  • Lol, poor tehya my 10 year old Chessie heard Johns dog finally at the 19:00 mark, now she’s looking around, she was kind of napping so she didn’t hear it the other times, I did though…

  • Just popped mine in the oven, I used beets, carrot, eddoes, celery, onion, and a regular potato……is that ok? Instead of using rosemary in the dressing, I used dried oregano. I put the beets one side in the baking dish as I didn’t want to mess up everything else.

  • At first, I thought ”Why doesn’t he take off his backpack?” but later I realized it was like one of those leather pieces the gays use and what I thought sounded exactly like this yes 2:13 and this laugh 6:45 subsequently together!

  • I don’t like goat cheese or blue cheese, so other cheeses I could use? This menu has made me hungry. mmmm I sure will be making these! ✌❤

  • In the middle school full of bullies… Insane teachers… And gross school lunches. Ned Bigby. That’s me. And my two best friends are trying to do the impossible Create a guide that will help you survive school.

  • I roast root veggies often to help get my veggies in. I usually only make/mix 2 or 3 at a time and often toss onions along with them and sometimes squash. I do yams separate. And the parsnips and beets do make good horns and googly eyes!

  • Didn’t know this channel existed. The 11 year old me is so hyped right now! Ned’s Declassified?! One of the most iconic shows of our childhood.

  • I just made this casserole today! I’m in my last semester of college and just don’t have time to cook everyday, so I love to meal prep! You can make this casserole vegan by skipping the cheese or using your favorite brand of dairy-free cheese and finding a dairy-free cream of mushroom soup. It was delicious! Thanks Christy and Devon! I’m so happy I randomly stumbled upon this channel. ❤️

  • My grandparents would make different roots (not these) with green bananas. Other than the bananas with cod fish I never had an interest in eating the other roots. They were spanish named so I don’t even remember what they’re called lol. They just cooked them in a 5quart pot and they always left a tar ring on the inside. So I never wanted to est them. Maybe if I prepare them like you did, I’d consider them.

  • Same here girl! I shred up purple cabbage every week in my veggie bullet and have it with everything! It’s so pretty, colorful, and delicious ��

  • I really loved watching this broadcast Chef AJ! I’m so busy these days unfortunately I don’t nearly have all the free time I did last year. I think you did an excellent job answering all the questions! I can’t wait for your summit to start and I can’t wait to meet you again this May in Palm Springs!

  • Whenever I lose inspiration to find something to eat I just look at your videos and boom I’m inspired! Thank you so much you are so helpful, appreciate all you do to help us stay on track.

  • I remember reading an encyclopedia in the 80s that mentioned California could feed 75% of the world’s population. When our government pays farmers to not grow food so others can price gouge. It’s just what they do to keep prices inflated and the rats the in the cage. If you’re near the southern border it’s obvious to see the price discrepancies when one gets the same product for more because of “subsidies”. It’s not sustainable because the people have no self control obese. Tis psychological control and economic control by the social engineers.

  • I moved to the country, grow my own food, never been healthier. Got so tired of 80%+ of all the stuff in my local super markets being full of preservatives, unstated contamination from the production process (ammonia, aluminum, Phthalates) flavor enhancers, sugar and Genetically modified food.
    And holy cow! Tomatoes! I have never tasted such an awesome tomato until I grew some Cherokee purples. For $5 I can grow $200+ of vegetables.
    My Blood sugar levels are better than ever (got diabetes type1 at age 22 after having McDonalds the symptoms started the day after and was full Diabetes type 1 by 2 weeks. First Diabetic in my family). My Attention Deficit Disorder and Asperger’s are not as debilitating as I am more able to feel motivated and am able to focus.

  • My mom used to make that cucumber salad, but all she used was vinegar oil salt and pepper and it was so bland�� this looks much better

  • I don’t like that they’re making faux meat taste exactly like meat x.x I don’t like the taste of meat so it just ends up tasting terrible to me Dx

    Miss watching Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide xD was a funny show

  • I’ve never even considered eating sweet potatoes and spinach for breakfast but I’m trying it. All of these dishes look really good. Opening my mind to trying new things for weight loss and health. I love it.

  • I love the pun! LOL. These all look so amazing! I LOVE soups & butternut squash is one of my favorites! But I hate onions (could I leave them out & still get good flavor?). And I’m way intimidated by roasting a whole chicken. Could I cook a similar meal for one with boneless skinless chicken breasts?

  • These are added to my index cards to pull out in the morning and replicate. Great recipes ��������Looking forward to this challenge!

  • NO you are an omnivore that chooses to eat only vegetable matter. You don’t magically turn into a herbivore just because you stopped eating meat one day.

  • I am pretty sure if huge numbers of people were dying off there would be chaos beyond comprehension. It is what is need though or else reverse population growth and hope we can survive the number of generations it takes to get to a sustainable population. We are the victims of our own success.

  • Beautiful dish! I love roasting sweet potatoes with chili powder, olive oil, and salt… makes a great addition to vegetarian taco salads:D

  • Yes but we would starve 90% of the people on earth. Unfortunately our population has gotten too large. If we farmed as we did in the 1960s, we would need to plow 80% of the earths land surface to feed the current population. We keep growing exponentially and are ultimately doomed!

  • Is your neighbor who gave you the cucumber salad Russian, Polish or Ukrainian? My family has been making, sharing and passing a long a version of that kind of �� ��salad since time began!!! Ours always had a bit of oil in it!

  • Meat is just a word. What kind of meat, dog meat, monkey, rat? And fed on what, Grain, GMO, Carrion. Not all meat is created equal.
    A lot of factory produced meat is junk. A lot of people eat it without knowing what they are getting. How much anti-biotics, medication, vaccines they consume. Sick animals making sick meat.
    Pasture fed animal breeds, with proven record for health and quality produce are a totally different proposition.

  • Hannah please don’t feel so awkward.I think everything you say flows very well and that you come off very well spoken! I just hope you give yourself a lot of love and try not to be too hard on yourself.

  • Markus rothkranz, Ted carr, raw vegan rising talk about micronutrients. Also Eli from the freemelon society has a very very interesting perspective on nutrition. I’d love to hear your thoughts on his approach. I can feel your passion, John. Namaste

  • For such a pumpkin soup I always add a handful or so of red lentils at the start (adds a thickness and a tone of protein for us vegetarians).

  • Holy shit I woke up this morning wondering what I’m going to do with all these tomatoes. I haven’t used my dehydrator in a long time. Your great!!

  • Thought provoking presentation. People buy organic to mostly look after their bodies, less so the land where they are grown. (We in New Zealand are exporting organic milk powder to the US? Ha!) Explaining how to farm on grass? I forget that farming isn’t on grassit’s the common practice here. Never heard of using chickens to eat fly larvae in cow dung now that makes a lot of sense! Sustainable growth may not be an oxymoron in every case after all. (So long as its short lived)

  • Your Mom did the best she could with the information that the doctors recommended back then. Please don’t be hurtful to her.

    I am happy you found your own path to health.

  • LOL, Ben Murray’s reference to the book “The China Study” was NOT to imply that the Chinese people eat less meat or anything. It refers to a massive data collection project in the 1970s where some 625,000 workers collected data on cancer and some other diseases in thousands of counties across China, along with dietary information on the patients. This gave a particular ‘snapshot” across a large country and some excellent opportunity for statistical analysis. It’s only one chapter in that book.

  • Plant diets are no good. The key is low carbs/sugar. Plant diets just happen to fall into that situation. You need meat though. B12.

  • Yum I love them this way. I steam or bake my veggies with seasonings and if I bake them I just spray with coconut oil and then sprinkle seasonings. I prefer you talking in the video Hun, the music was way too loud also:/ sorry

  • ok, so the sustainable farmer won’t send a chicken on a truck that’s going there anyways, but now the journo has to drive his own car on the same route just to get a chicken. sorry, i don’t see the logic there.

  • I was unconscious to the unsustainabilty to my eating habits. It was a series of events, two significants ones, one of which was realizing my eating choices were making me ill and going on a fruit and vegetable cleanse and watching Fast Food Nation. It didn’t happen overnight but it did happen where I no longer eat at fast food restaurants, I just don’t trust them, and I choose to eat a predominatly plant based diet. I now make daily choices in the direction of a sustainable food supply.

  • An omnivore you are, no matter how much you wish it werent so, you may take a stand against the cruelty, animals must endure to satisfy us and turn away from it, and may you have luck on that endeavour, but thinking that humans are not built for food is some 250k year old history, your appendix is whats left of you ancestral vegetarian ape diet, like the little stump remnant of a tale on your rear:)

  • Love all your recipe ideas, you keep everything so simple, yet delicious!! I can’t wait for your hardcover book to be available.��

  • Hey Chef AJ as always you are Awesome ���� �������������������� I just enjoyed every bit of the streaming many questions answered beautifully ���������� thank you Gratitude to you to be there for so many of us

  • There’s debate over whether or not this was the result of agriculture. Remember that alongside agriculture came animal domestication, and the rise of zoonotic diseases. Hunter gatherers consuming no grains also started to shrink around this period, which scientists attribute to a shift in climate.

  • alguien podria hacer el grsn favor de subtitularlo en español? no kerría perder detalle.

    Muy importante, Gary Yourofsky avisa ke este video está creado para mal influenciar a la gente metiendole ideas equivocadas. Gary aconseja que no lo veamos, o en todo caso, no creerselo.

  • really good talk though I think it would help to point out that it is only natural for food to be grown more locally eventually. If trade barriers and government subsidies are removed, the wages of the world will reach equilibrium eventually and it will no longer be more profitable to ship things long distances. It is the governments of the world that are the biggest hindrances to sustainable, local organic food.

  • I’d have to agree I don’t like that part of his talk….eh people can’t don’t always get everything right. I wouldn’t call him a fraud for that though…Most of what hes saying is legit.

  • At least hes not Obama….Obama does this a ton if he doesn’t have his teleprompter especially and also everything he has to say is bull and shit. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are the only two ever in the race that were for any meaningful change as in spending cuts, bringing troops home, fully funding Social Security and Medicare for those already on it, but working to reform the system for those down the line.

  • Meat when naturally raised is very healthy. Cooked foods may not be as good as raw but I think our bodies deal with them just fine if our guts have the proper gut flora. If you eat things that populate the gut with beneficial bacteria such as raw milk from grass-fed cows or raw-milk yogurt or raw-milk kefir etc.. your stomach will be fine.

    Its highly possible that its ideal to eat all things raw, but think we can be perfectly healthy eating some cooked food.

  • I made the Kale with the Dijon mustard and maple syrup dressing. Soooooo good! I loved having it for breakfast, I used a regular orange. Can’t wait to have it again! Love your channel. I’m new to this starch solution way of eating whole food plant based. Trying to get used to veggies in the morning. Your recipe ideas are great and I like the simplicity. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  • It’s more about the content in between the Uh’s. Everybody needs time to regroup their thoughts. The only difference between him and, let’s say, a republican candidate is that he actually says meaningful things in between brief pauses.

  • Like everything you prepare this looks delicious. 3 of the vegetables you used I’ve never even tried before….After this is prepared could it be frozen into smaller portions and reheated later?? Thanks for another great recipe:))

  • found you promoting Silk based smoothies. Love presentation, personality, and recipies. Now enjoying your video presentations on UTube. New fan.

  • “Meat is why so many americans are facing health problems and obesity now”

    I thought it was because we are consuming 2-6 times the daily amount of sodium, processed sugar, hydrogenated oils, and eating too much fried food.

    Stay stupid self-righteous vegans and vegetarians.

  • Hannah!! I love it! You can also add tomatoes to that cucumber salad to use those up. It’s really yummy:) thank you for all you do.

  • If you choose to be a vegan or vegetarian out of a moral compelling, more power to you. If you believe it is healthier than a well rounded diet that includes lean meat and fish you are sadly fucking mistaken.

  • @ThePhantomLash wtf? Asians age better than anyone on the planet. You were probably sitting next to a 90 year old asian that looked like a 65 year old white lady.

  • @MindofaJedi Have a look at the end product…. All asians look older tan they are, are bent over, cough, sneeze and splutter all over you when u sit next to them on the train or bus……

  • @theonetruemessage
    When I was a teenager, a 35 year old woman told me about working in slaughterhouses. If a pregnant sow was being slaughtered, they would have fun slicing open her belly to throw her litter into boiling oil. They thought it was really cool to hear the agony of the pigglets being boiled alive. She told me these things because she also enjoyed torturing me. Its because of this I avoid buying dairy and meat. I rather go without then unknowingly support this brutality.

  • He is definitely full of energy, dude he gave me no rest, kept me up here * raises his hand * throughout the whole video. I think I have a crush on him now that I didn’t have before!

  • I have about 100 cucumbers coming in! Looks like I’m going to be juicing, shredding and chopping them into every one of my daily meals (no complaints) ��

  • I love your q and a days! So glad you’re doing this today. I have heard you mention that vegetables fill you up in the morning because they have Filacoids. Am I even saying that right? I tried to look it up and I don’t know what this is. Can you explain?

  • Are vegtables always required for breakfast? I’ve never ate vegtables for breakfast maybe for lunch snack and dinner

    Also I increase the amount if my family is eating to right?

    And your plate is big, is that what my plate should be?

  • My mom used to make that cucumber salad, but all she used was vinegar oil salt and pepper and it was so bland�� this looks much better

  • This was a wonderful Q&A. Than-q for you ever-present patience and understanding of the questions and queries that you receive. I so appreciate you for putting so much time and effort into sharing your knowledge and the knowledge of others to help people learn what they need to heal and grow into the person they desire to be in order to live the life they have dreamed of living with the health that is their birthright.
    I am not sure why you gave an absolute pass on soy curls. They are simply non-gmo soybeans grown without chemical pesticides. They are soaked in non-chlorinated water, cooked in water and then dried at low temperatures to maintain their nutrients. Like tofu, they are a blank canvas to be used in whatever way a cook may choose.
    I understand not using them as part of a weight loss plan due to their inherent high fat content as they are whole soybeans. From a whole food plant based aspect, I am not sure why you deem them off limits as the drying process is the only thing that differentiates them from any other plain unsalted, unflavoured cooked bean that can be purchased. The drying process gives them a different texture than whole edamame, which provides more variety in uses.
    Keep doing all you do. You are changing and saving lives in your own unique ways!
    With peace, gratitude, grace and light! XO

  • Yes Chef AJ I saw you Friday afternoon at the Rancho Mirage library at the Dr. Greger lecture. I was so happy to see two of my favorite people. Martha,

  • Thanks for bringing up the fat thing again, some discussions especially for womens health make me unsure again and again! Same with oats and pasta and condiments! Unprocessed is key!!

  • Tomatoes: I pop the skins off of them by dunking them in hot water, then cool (so I can handle them). Get the sees out and then cook them down takes awhile. Put them in a jar and freeze them if I’m not eating them right away. Then add seasoning as wanted later. Warning: you won’t like canned tomatoes after having them like this.

  • Probably the single best advice anyone who’s trying to lose weight or get healthy should follow is, fill up on nonstarchy vegetables and high-water fruit. These foods are SO calorically dilute, that for most people, even if they don’t do anything to change the rest of their diet, they’re going to lose most if not all of their excess weight.

  • Just wanted to add, a lot of people from Georgia that might have been raised around Atlanta might not have the southern twang you look for in southern people, Atlanta and its suburbs can be extremely diverse.

  • “I’m not gonna show that on camera, because were not that kinda show” hahaha I was totally like: “she’s not really going to show that, right?” lmao

  • Globalism is an agenda of extinction. It only works when there is abundant cheap energy. If there is a dip in the supply of energy starvation will sweep the globe. Even if we find sources of cheap energy, unless they are accessible locally (so not like centrally generated electricity, or oil) we will be dependent on the charity of corporations for life. It is not realistic to expect morality from the amoral.

    Localised food is sustainable and solar power.

  • That cucumber salad looks great! I love those little cucumbers, so fresh and crispy. Will also try the red cabbage salad because most recipes like that have oil in them. Thanks for a new video, even if you were feeling a little rusty.

  • Whenever I lose inspiration to find something to eat I just look at your videos and boom I’m inspired! Thank you so much you are so helpful, appreciate all you do to help us stay on track.

  • I wish he talked about Love at first Hiccup �� He was great in that movie though different from Ned Declassified. I highly recommend that you watch it if you haven’t.

  • I’m excited to join the challenge this go around. I’m a vegan who doesn’t love veggies but am trying to retrain my palette. The idea of a big plate of veg with my breakfast just sounds so tough.

  • I know you must be a very busy lady but if you can find the time to answer this I would really appreciate it. I am new to this way of eating and I am an older woman and I cant exercise like I used to. Will I still be able to lose weight by eating this way? Perhaps when I drop a few pounds I can get back to exercising. That is the hope! Thank you for all of you great informative videos. I appreciate your efforts.

  • Spending more on food may not be an option for folks close to the poverty level. Growing their own in community with others may be a better option.

  • Great timing Hannah! I had lots of cucumbers and red onions from the garden, the cucumber salad is delicious. I also had a red cabbage sitting in the fridge for a week….cabbage salad also delicious ��

  • So I have to say that Kim Possible was a Baddie and she still is. I live for these moments. Almost 20 years later and old school Nickelodeon and Disney Channel are still apart of my life. ��

  • Yep, the pool is awesome! Just came from class. I love it❤️ Told my instructor that a lot of what we do I wouldn’t do outside of the pool. I’m at goal weight, but suffer from a condition affecting ligaments and tendons so the pool is very soothing❤️✨

  • Holy shit I woke up this morning wondering what I’m going to do with all these tomatoes. I haven’t used my dehydrator in a long time. Your great!!

  • Awesome!:) And you’re getting so skiiiiny!! (I need to follow your advice. I gained 50 lb in a year because losing my gallbladder wrecked my digestive system, (and also I’m on corticosteroids for my lungs), so… both of those things are unkind to bodies trying to lose / maintain weight.) Love your content! Thank you for making more content, and inspiring all of us. ����❤️️

  • Jah love John. Thanks for answering these questions. I had a couple of favorites. I would like to know what happened to your girlfriend? I thought that you two were serious and that you were gonna get married! Blessed love.

  • you say we should be getting our minerals from food not water but isnt water our natural source of b12 in nature? you werent getting enough b12 from your food according to your blood tests and the soil in nature is not as diverse as yours

  • I just received my copy of Let’s get Saucy and I can’t wait to start making the sauces!!! Especially the maple mustard sauce….Yummy!!

  • Sugar & Alcohol Sensitivities: FYI for those avoiding sugar and alcohol — Watkins vanilla powder contains sugar, so if someone is avoiding white sugar, then purchase either real vanilla bean powder that contains nothing but vanilla beans, or try using organic vanilla “flavoring” (which does not contain alcohol as vanilla extract does) because unless you cook/bake you will taste the alcohol (flavoring tastes better).

  • omg, ned??!! My childhood just rushed back! My boyfriend and I just started a Vegan YouTube channel where we’re documenting our experience of being vegan through cooking, challenges and more! Check it out ����✨

  • Omg I got the carb solution book. I ate a baked potatoe last night for the first time in 10 years had 2 cups broccoli this morning first time ever I am loving this new way of eating ty

  • Yep, the pool is awesome! Just came from class. I love it❤️ Told my instructor that a lot of what we do I wouldn’t do outside of the pool. I’m at goal weight, but suffer from a condition affecting ligaments and tendons so the pool is very soothing❤️✨

  • My favorites are sweet potatoes and beets! Whenever I cook with beets I always manage to make my kitchen look like a murder scene lol! The red juice gets EEVERYYWHERE. Speaking of which, anyone who eats a large amount of beets for the first time should remember that when they take a trip to the bathroom, or they might end up really terrified (haha, happened to me). 
    AND SINCE YOU ASKED, my favorite way to eat root veggies is roasted in a medley like this OR, specifically, baked sweet potato, warm with almond butter melted on top and some cinnamon/maple syrup:))))))))

  • Hannah!! I love it! You can also add tomatoes to that cucumber salad to use those up. It’s really yummy:) thank you for all you do.

  • I missed this last time! But I’m in this time! Thank you for these breakfast ideas, I had not come up with a way to get spinach in at breakfast, other than soup.

  • Is your neighbor who gave you the cucumber salad Russian, Polish or Ukrainian? My family has been making, sharing and passing a long a version of that kind of �� ��salad since time began!!! Ours always had a bit of oil in it!

  • i dont recomend raw sage on top of the soup, it makes everything bitter, cooked sage is amazing just try crisping it up in some olive oil till nice and crisp

  • Your videos are super informational and entertaining. You can see your passion(and Christian’s). Thank you for making these! Your positive energy shines through!

  • That cucumber salad looks great! I love those little cucumbers, so fresh and crispy. Will also try the red cabbage salad because most recipes like that have oil in them. Thanks for a new video, even if you were feeling a little rusty.

  • The music and colourful veggies got me super pumped and excited to try this simple recipe ps. that mustve taken a while to peel those i think i would take an hr to peel those im super slow at peeling lol

  • I will be making this soon. Love all the colors! Awesome with some lean protein or alone. I make parsnips cut in fry shape. Perfect healthy fries.
    Keep this vids coming. Love them. ��

  • Such a great video! I learned a lot and now I won’t be scared to buy & try some root veggies other then carrots & sweet potato!:)

  • Like everything you prepare this looks delicious. 3 of the vegetables you used I’ve never even tried before….After this is prepared could it be frozen into smaller portions and reheated later?? Thanks for another great recipe:))

  • I just received my copy of Let’s get Saucy and I can’t wait to start making the sauces!!! Especially the maple mustard sauce….Yummy!!

  • In the middle school full of bullies… Insane teachers… And gross school lunches. Ned Bigby. That’s me. And my two best friends are trying to do the impossible Create a guide that will help you survive school.

  • I’m confused, you tell us we can prepare/cook everything on Sunday and eat it “all week long” but after the recipe, you say they’ll only last 3-4 days or 4-5 days in the fridge. That isn’t a week?

  • Beautiful dish! I love roasting sweet potatoes with chili powder, olive oil, and salt… makes a great addition to vegetarian taco salads:D

  • I just found your channel & you are such a lovely person!! I saw a video where you said you were struggling to get pregnant & just wanted to tell you to not give up hope.
    I was told that I wouldn’t be able to have children when I was around 19. I had poly cystic ovaries & they use to rupture (more painful than child birth! haha)
    Me & my boyfriend had been having unprotected sex for more than 2 years & then I became pregnant! It was a week after my 21st birthday & during this time I wasn’t looking after my body at all. I was smoking soooo much & barely eating anything.
    She’s my little miracle.
    The day after I found out I was pregnant I started bleeding loads & went into hospital. The doctor told me i was having a miscarriage. They said that I needed to come back in a few days so they could make sure everything had passed. I went back a few days later & they found a heartbeat!

    Don’t lose hope. It will happen when you least expect it xxx

  • Such a great idea! I usually make chips out of roots when I get that salty craving. plus the colors make it looks so pretty which makes kids love it as well:)

  • This is a PSA to spell Devon’s last name correctly ( 1:25)! I’m blaming my editors for this one… Guess I’ll just have to have him back on again so they can get it right! Also, what do you guys think I should giveaway when I get to 500k subscribers?!

  • One thing he talks about, eat local not at fast food, “most people cannot afford to” but try.  In the cheap food, it has no nutrition and has chemicals, makes you sick, I disagree with the premise when said people cannot afford to eat real nutrition & chemical free food because, no body gets out cheap, you either pay now your way and actually feed yourself or you pay later in illness, prescription drugs and medical bills.  It is everyone’s choice, right now Americans are choosing to pay later in illness and drugs.  But we all pay in the end, now or later.

  • “Can you get the oven for me, My hands are preoccupied with casserole” ���� Omg, I’m stealing this recipe! It looks so good and I’m torturing myself by watching this at 4 am while in quarantine?! ����

  • i tried it
    u cant make beans fine foods, no matter how u sprouted/cook/ferment them
    u can only make them into microgreens and eat them in a vegetable-like form
    like the popular peas/fava beans for example, other way they not viable

  • Everything looks so good. I’m wondering what a good substitute for the maple syrup (in the cookies) would be. I can’t have that much sugar:/

  • I wish he talked about Love at first Hiccup �� He was great in that movie though different from Ned Declassified. I highly recommend that you watch it if you haven’t.

  • Well said. Except that it is not republican. It is conservative. A true conservative, like myself, drives a honda fit and grows his or her own food. Republican and Democrat are simply labels that really dont mean anything anymore as the “fiscal cliff” debates illustrated. Liberals and conservatives, in the end, want the same things, they just want them for different reasons and that is where we see the clash.:) Then we label that clash “politics” and let our avatars (politicans) fight.

  • He is definitely full of energy, dude he gave me no rest, kept me up here * raises his hand * throughout the whole video. I think I have a crush on him now that I didn’t have before!

  • Average poster on this thread: ‘Blah, blah, blah, I’m educated, blah, blah, me, blah, blah, smarter, blah blah, I’m a fucking asshole who thinks my diploma from the local community college makes me a better pundit.’

  • So I have to say that Kim Possible was a Baddie and she still is. I live for these moments. Almost 20 years later and old school Nickelodeon and Disney Channel are still apart of my life. ��

  • I will be making this soon. Love all the colors! Awesome with some lean protein or alone. I make parsnips cut in fry shape. Perfect healthy fries.
    Keep this vids coming. Love them. ��

  • My grandparents would make different roots (not these) with green bananas. Other than the bananas with cod fish I never had an interest in eating the other roots. They were spanish named so I don’t even remember what they’re called lol. They just cooked them in a 5quart pot and they always left a tar ring on the inside. So I never wanted to est them. Maybe if I prepare them like you did, I’d consider them.

  • I’m so excited that the 3 of you are working together again for MWM!! Love the 3 meal ideas for B, L, & D! I needed this inspiration bc I’ve been so lazy & definitely keeping things simple for my meals but nice to have variation. The @eatyourveggies challenge was how I discovered all of your channels & decided to give this way of eating a try. Can’t wait to join in each month!!

  • It looks like you’re cooking the veggies too long otherwise good job. If your oven is set to 400 deg it shouldn’t take that long to cook. Also, the longer you cook, you more you reduce the amount of nutrients in each vegetable.

  • omg, ned??!! My childhood just rushed back! My boyfriend and I just started a Vegan YouTube channel where we’re documenting our experience of being vegan through cooking, challenges and more! Check it out ����✨

  • As always, delicious yet simple recipes exactly what I l want! I look forward to the challenge! I already subscribe to all 3 of you. You are terrific!

  • Paige Mariah u made this look so easy. I’m new to all of this videos meal prep keto cardio the whole thing. I’m determined tho n ur progress has lifted my spirits. I am a believer! Thank u so so much.

  • Probably the single best advice anyone who’s trying to lose weight or get healthy should follow is, fill up on nonstarchy vegetables and high-water fruit. These foods are SO calorically dilute, that for most people, even if they don’t do anything to change the rest of their diet, they’re going to lose most if not all of their excess weight.

  • Wow, just wow. I’m so glad you mentioned oatmeal. My weight has steadily start going back up since adding oatmeal again into my life. Admittedly, I have an unhealthy relationship with soft bread like grains. Not only do I tend to over eat oats, but they cause pain and extreme bloating in my stomach. Lol, I’m usually willing to endure the pain for the taste. I really don’t feel like it’s a health food that I personally should eat frequently.

    Sweet potatoes and brown rice allow me to feel the signal when full. I can’t just eat one bowl of oat meal and feel satisfied unless I have fruit with it. Now that I know it has a higher amount of fat and same for quinoa, I’m going to avoid them for right now.

    I use to think it was the sweet taste that I was after but maybe it is the fat.

  • The music and colourful veggies got me super pumped and excited to try this simple recipe ps. that mustve taken a while to peel those i think i would take an hr to peel those im super slow at peeling lol

  • Do you calculate the fat macros for the coconut oil used on the veggies? I’m new to it and want to make sure I calculate mine accurately. Thanks! Keep making more meal prep videos please!

  • Love the video. I taught my boyfriend how to cook veggie in the oven like this.

    Advice….bigger knife, oven on 350, and only cook for about 20mins. Those veggies are mush.:-/

  • Hi, new subbie here. The food looks great. How do you get over the boredom of eating the same meals each week while meal prepping? I get bored fast with the food so I’ve always avoided meal prepping. Any suggestions? Thanks and I like your channel.:) xoxo-stef

  • I live in Indiana so my coconut oil is never a liquid at room temp ���� When it gets above 76 degrees here, it’s too hot so I keep the A.C. on ����

  • You really would benefit from a larger chef knife, it would make all this work so much easier, and probably more enjoyable for you. Just a thought. Thanks for the video!

  • !! You three are the “Dream Team”!! Love all three of your channels and love your collaboration. ❤️❤️ How lucky are all of us, your subscribers ❤️❤️ Thank you, Kiki, for these breakfast ideas. I can’t wait to try the roasted potatoes with roasted veg what an amazing oven hash brown idea. ��

  • Chef AJ, I think I may have just had an “aha moment” at about minute 40:00 41:00 in your video. I just finished my daily GENEROUS bowl of cooked grains, mostly steel cut oats w/ some other odd grains (amaranth, freekeh, cracked wheat, etc.) and loaded with fruit. I make it at work every morning on my office desk in a small 4-cup rice cooker I bought at a thrift store three years ago.
    Since June I have been at a plateau of about 205-215 lbs. (down from over 225) since doing your 21-day challenge last April/May. I really want to get below 200 and eventually around 175 185. (I was 335 lbs. in March 2016.) The holidays have been a challenge a few non-compliant days, but I got back on track and have been good about eating to the “left of the red line.”
    But, holy cow! It never really sunk in until now: the fat content of oats (and other even slightly processed grains) might be holding back my continued weight loss. I’m maintaining just fine eating as much as I want, even without much exercise. And yet I knew that about oats they have a higher fat content still lower than a lot of foods, but surprisingly high compared to other grains.
    I will try that. Starting tomorrow, Saturday, January 18, I will switch to something else for breakfast that’s of a lower caloric density. I was doing that back in the spring, like your book prescribed, eating a pound of veggies each morning AND THEN having my grains (usually cut or rolled oats) afterward for “second breakfast.” But I will try eliminating them completely for several weeks and see what happens.
    I do love my cooked grains in the morning, but I also love so many other fruit, veggie, tuber, and legume combinations that it should be easy to make this change.
    I also did a little research and some math on the fat content of grains and discovered I could do some swaps with grains that are much lower in calories that come from fat 5% or less like brown rice, wild rice, wheat berries or barley. Oats and amaranth are 16% fat calories. Quinoa 14%. Corn 12%. (Flax seed 71%!)
    THANK YOU! You are beautiful and wonderful!

  • What air fryer do you use? Also in the cabbage recipe, what veggies did you put in (clear plastic tall container)? And what peeler was that you shed the carrots? �� sn: I’m a newbie to the vegan/plant based lifestyle.

  • Thanks!!! ����♥️���� Am going to make the 1st and 3rd ones today! I just started eating this way and got all these veggies in and was like, NOW what??? ��

  • I just made this casserole today! I’m in my last semester of college and just don’t have time to cook everyday, so I love to meal prep! You can make this casserole vegan by skipping the cheese or using your favorite brand of dairy-free cheese and finding a dairy-free cream of mushroom soup. It was delicious! Thanks Christy and Devon! I’m so happy I randomly stumbled upon this channel. ❤️

  • The grass farmer, 100 acres of grass and 400 acres of woodlot. Woodlot, a place for wild animals to live. Unlike most modern farms that utilize every square inch leaving no place for wild animals. The government has the CRP program in the midwest but the cost of corn has made the crop so valuable that there has been a huge reduction of CRP. If every farm practiced this we would be helping nature instead of ruining it.

  • Binge watched Hannah’s channel over the weekend. I have to find the video with the simple pancakes again as I have the ingredients. I didn’t get to write it down. Thank you for the breakfast ideas!

    I’m working on some large/important projects that are time consuming. Struggling with the concept that I can still have a routine and get big stuff done. Maybe it’s anxiety talking. Maybe it’s leftover from my mom’s ways. Either way, I need to fix my thinking.
    I need to start prepping meals some. Also still struggling with finding meal prep containers for family style. My husband can eat a lot. Have little room in my cupboards and fridge. Again… large projects. A little frustrated but trying.

  • Thanks for bringing up the fat thing again, some discussions especially for womens health make me unsure again and again! Same with oats and pasta and condiments! Unprocessed is key!!

  • I couldn’t possibly eat all of that food at one time. How important is it to eat this amount of food? Could I eat just the oatmeal or is the combo of veggies and oatmeal important?

  • There is plenty enough land. Without a single solitary acre of “farmland” the United States could feed itself just by growing food in peoples lawns and golf courses. It is priorities. Right now the priority is to take the easy wasteful path. If true hunger were to come that would change in a hurry.

  • I’ve mentioned it before, but I prefer my root veggies grilled. Cut into rounds, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil. I usually let them sit for 1/2 an hour to an hour to marinade and let the salt pull out some moisture (helps with getting a crust). Then I grill them on high heat for grill marks (searing) and then on medium for about 20 minutes, flipping and shifting them around to different spots on the grill. I also use a grill pan for whole button mushrooms, cubed squash/zucchini and quartered onions at the same time. Nice and soft on the inside, crispy and smoky on the outside…yum! I need to try carrots some time this summer. Turnips are awesome this way!

  • Thank you for sharing so much information freely John, great video as usual!! Thank you for including my question and answering it in detail ☺

  • I am so thankful that I found you on here! I started a plant based diet and have seen results almost immediately and I feel so much better. Nothing I have tried has work in the past. I have been trying to lose weight for so long, so please keep these videos coming, you are such an inspiration!!!

  • Your videos are super informational and entertaining. You can see your passion(and Christian’s). Thank you for making these! Your positive energy shines through!

  • you say we cant digest the pulp but our gut bacteria can.. that doesnt make any sense cause its our gut bacteria IS our digestion and then u say you feed it to your worms and the nutrients go into your garden but then you are just gonna juice it and not use the pulp again so i dunno man you either you are loosing your mind or i am only just starting to notice that your mind has been lost all along:p

  • Just popped mine in the oven, I used beets, carrot, eddoes, celery, onion, and a regular potato……is that ok? Instead of using rosemary in the dressing, I used dried oregano. I put the beets one side in the baking dish as I didn’t want to mess up everything else.

  • Yes Chef AJ I saw you Friday afternoon at the Rancho Mirage library at the Dr. Greger lecture. I was so happy to see two of my favorite people. Martha,

    I agree. Families have depend on their farms and livestock for generations. I think my grandparents were normal in the way they cared for the animals, kept them clean and well fed until it was time to slaughter them. It was done quick, efficiently and with gratitude to God. Some of the practices nowadays are absolutely disgusting.

  • John buys HUGE CASES OF FRUIT,spending hundreds or thousands of dollars, and still says he gets his calories from kale juice, I really don’t understand this fruit-phobia insanity.

  • i had binged watched 5 of your videos then realised i had not subscribed. WHAAAT! the devil is a liar.. girl i even clicked the bell

  • I remember binging neds declassified everyday in the summer before middle school bc I thought it was like a real advice show and that that’s what’s its actually right. I was wrong, it did not help.

  • I had a Wellness Weekend with one of my Girlfriends here on our Ranch and I made each of the recipes except the trail mix. We went kayaking, did yoga and took a few long hikes to watch the wildlife!! The meals were super simple to put together but big on flavor!! Thanks for the inspiration….with love from Texas!!

  • Tried the pumpkin cookies and they were amazing! I just also purchased the meal prep e-books. Love them. We made these pumpkin cookies today as we are stuck in the house while Hurricane Matthew blows through. We are around 200 miles from the eye of the storm, but we still are having hours of heavy rain and wind. Still have power though. So my husband and I decided to get in the kitchen and try these cookies. We both love them… Can’t wait to try some other recipes and do some serious meal prep. Thanks and keep up the good work. Love your channel.

  • I will definitely do this for my one year old baby and for myself of course������but I’m wondering if he can eat balsamic vineger at his age?

  • Wow these top comments are terrible. How about instead of talking about medial presentation flaws or telling us about how you are in the top 1% income and are somehow immune from this, we talk about the points Pollan is trying to get across about how our current american industrial food system is totally fucked. Its unhealthy, unsustainable, killing our soils rivers and polluting our air, and has put a veil between us and our food. Do you know where your chicken nuggets come from? EAT LOCALLY

  • OMG the butternut squash and apple soup is delicious even my 2 year old loved it (and he hates vegetables) I just added zucchini to the soup and at the end a teaspoon of Greek yogurt and it tastes delicious. I will try the quinoa salad as it looks. Very tasty.

  • delicious! I was just saying how under used and underrated pumpkin is here in Europe and then I saw this lovely video too! I’m looking forward to using some on my channel too at some stage:)

  • Love the collaboration and the hash browns look amazing! I like that you just stick them in the oven instead of trying to flatten them out and get them crispy, so much easier!

  • I don’t like that they’re making faux meat taste exactly like meat x.x I don’t like the taste of meat so it just ends up tasting terrible to me Dx

    Miss watching Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide xD was a funny show

  • “Can you get the oven for me, My hands are preoccupied with casserole” ���� Omg, I’m stealing this recipe! It looks so good and I’m torturing myself by watching this at 4 am while in quarantine?! ����

  • I remember going to downtown Tampa last year with my girlfriend really early in the a.m to grab something to eat and he was eating at Taco bus by himself. Of course I had to go in there and talk to him and tell him how i’m a fan. We talked for about an hour and a half before he had to leave. He’s a really chill dude and acts like this off camera as well. Buy BOY he talks a lot lmfao. Hope the best for him and wish his acting career turns around soon.

  • Thank you so much for this! I just had sweet potato for dinner today but I think I might have to make this tomorrow, haha! Your videos are always so awesome and educational:D

  • I’m not sure how you think 25 mins in a instant pot is quick..it’s 2 minutes in the microwave.or 5 mins on cooker.have a good day ��

  • Then you should never whine or complain about anything. You just want somebody else to change the world for you. All great changes in the world started with one person and one idea. Each one of us can change the world.

  • Can you please make some food for people on a diet? Like low carb and stuff
    Amazing video!! love all of your recipes!!

    Love from Denmark <3

  • Link to the pumpkin pie spice mix not yet in the description (and the link in the vid doesn’t work for me): send help!! (non-US viewer here so there will never be pumpkin pie spice in any supermarket near me (also would it be possible to have the oven temperatures in Celsius on the screen, maybe, just an idea to help us non-Imperial types)).

  • I am not being a smart ass, honestly. But after reading this book and in the midst of it, I actually craved and sought out corn products. I searched out corn nuts and corn tortillas. This is no lie, I felt bad but I ate them unstoppable.

  • I just love the fact that almost everything you make can easily be made vegan friendly or already are! I have to try out the kale in a jar for work, nice, fall-ish, healthy, and filling! Thanks:)

  • Yum I love them this way. I steam or bake my veggies with seasonings and if I bake them I just spray with coconut oil and then sprinkle seasonings. I prefer you talking in the video Hun, the music was way too loud also:/ sorry

  • “But no more cookies….” made me giggle a little too much! Thanks for bringing back this series!!!! So helpful for on the go jobs like mine (Flight Attendant). I will share it with all my coworkers!!! Loves ya <3
