  • I’m pregnant due March 2021! I had a stillbirth with my last pregnancy so it’s pretty scary. I love how inclusive these videos are though! X

  • I’m a first time mom and Im due feb 10 2021 so im watching this dont know what to expect freaking out may all you ladies have a healthy and safe delivery especially with covid!

  • So true about pre-cut fruit/veggies. I literally just came from grocery shopping (putting away my groceries while watching this.). I wanted some watermelon. I was hoping for a small piece that I could cut up, but my options were only a whole seedless watermelon for 29 cents per pound or. presided for $3.99 per pound. The small container of pre-sliced was $5.99, The smallest watermelon I could find was 13.52 pounds and came to $3.92. I will probably fill 3-4 containers from this entire melon! (Guessing here). I don’t even think it will take me a long time to slice. Maybe 1-2 YouTube videos.:)

  • 25 weeks tomorrow boyfriend left me yesterday with no explanation just left while I was at work things are difficult and I’m struggling just want to meet my baby boy now ����

  • Whenever I watch these videos I get shocked when I see “Allison B.” in the contacts. My name is Allison and my maiden initial was B (I was married nearly a year ago, so it’s still really fresh that my name changed!). I feel like that mom to be is my friend I hope she calls me to talk about this pregnancy… haha! Thanks for the helpful videos and the fun visuals.

  • that is strange about the water before a scan. because my OB wants an empty one every time. Also confused on how 18weeks is 4 months but 23 is 6 six months according to doctor charts…

  • A lot of stores have curbside pick up. I shop online for my food, then pick it up. Sooo much easier! I don’t over spend and I don’t have kids dragging me everywhere.

  • The flu shot has NEVER been tested for safety during pregnancy. It says so on the package insert. It is believed to actually increase your chance of miscarriage. Please do you research into vaxx more than just this video.

  • UTI’s… The story of my life�� 13 weeks & 2 days pregnant & I’ve already had 3 UTI’s. Please pray for me. On top of all the morning sickness plus the UTIs I’ve been miserable. I just want to enjoy being pregnant. 2nd baby. My son is 13. I pray for all the mommy’s out here to have healthy / safe pregnancies and deliveries��

  • I’m 20 and pregnant with my first, I thought I was infertile until I did a pregnancy test and it said I’m 2-3 weeks pregnant, I’m now around 7 weeks with bad sickness and it’s horrible, but I’m due march and me and my partner are so excited! I hope that all you mummies to be has a great pregnancy and delivery. And that it’s okay to be scared! ❤️❤️

  • Thank you so much for this video!! I like making a list about groceries but sometimes I need a reminder of how important it is and how much it helps!

  • For someone who is currently trying to eat as healthy as possible to clear their skin & tone up, but also save for travel and life in general this is perfect! Great video as always girl xx also your EDITING!! Teach me your ways!

  • Can you make a video on how long veggies last in the fridge after they are cut. Like onion and ginger and everything else you eat lol. Also what can be put in the freezer. I never thought of putting my greens in the freezer.

  • So I am 25 weeks and 1 day today and I have known that I was pregnant since I was like 4 or 5 weeks I feel like I have been pregnant for sooooo long and I’m just so excited to meet my baby girl. With this pandemic going on my biggest anxiety isn’t even labor it’s if my boyfriend will be allowed to be there or not

  • I’m really disappointed you recommended an expensive meal service in this “budget” episode. I’m usually a huge fan, but that felt dirty.

  • Due in February 2021 with my first baby..sending love to all the first time mommies,may we all have healthy pregnancies and babies❤️

  • Pregnant with my first child. I’m nervous because my family is in California and I’m in New York. With covid happening, I’m not able to see them.

  • The birth of a new life in your very hands is the most magical feeling one goes through. It brings in so much joy, that all the problems seem to fade away.
    However, amidst the pandemic crisis, it is essential to take care of your mental health so that it allows the development of the new born baby in a smooth and beautiful manner.
    We would hence like to carry out a survey based on mental health and provide you with equivalent solutions in order to develop your mental health
    Kindly fill in the same
    Thanks

  • I’m due Early December with my first baby, I’m really nervous don’t know the gender yet, but im looking forward to being the best mom I can be, hope I have a safe pregnancy and goes for other moms aswell god bless everyone

  • ze one and only meal prep queen! loved the editing as always xx
    another tip though ; everytime i shop just an hour or so before the store closes most of the products have usually a discount.

  • So many “self-help” things out there but I love that Rachel always ties in the practical, money management components! Not a lot of young women out there doing the money component of healthy, balanced living. Thank you Rachel! I LOVE to listen and watch!

  • The markets here in Sydney, or at least the ones that I know of, tend to be more expensive that produce from Woolies or Coles, is there a certain type of markets you would suggest or know of that are cheaper?

  • Due in February 2021 with my first baby..sending love to all the first time mommies,may we all have healthy pregnancies and babies❤️

  • I get a kick out of looking at your recommended budget percentages. Something about it being a generalized typical example of a budget but if you go by it without consideration of whatever it is I can’t name it right now, your not exactly spending money in the most efficient manner. Just think of it. If you are making say $60,000 take home pay after taxes, 10-15% for food might make sense for, say a family of 4 but not for a single person. Likewise, if you are on a very modest income and you try take out health insurance, I betcha it can take as much as 50% out of your income. The same with housing. You can’t go by a generalized view.

  • Love your channel and you Rachel.

    Also hooked on your friend/roommate Rachel Lee too!!

    Any chance you can do a video on how to initially set up with kitchen larder, kitchen utensils and equipment for making meals and meal prep but with your minimalist thinking/design??

    I am in the process of setting up my first purchases for my own kitchen and just want a slimline collection of kitchen items and also be health conscious when purchasing too? I suffer with Hashimoto’s Thyroid issue since I was young and am always discovering new issues that cause my issues to get worse. I’ve recently discovered i need to stay away from storing food in plastics and using pans/cooking pots that have teflon coating as they are chemicals which in turn slowly poison and cause extra fatigue on my body to filter out….

    Any advice or tips you’ve picked up I would (and many others) would be eternally grateful.
    Love and blessings xxxx

  • Currently 14 weeks with with my second baby(hoping for a girl this time), being pregnant during a global pandemic is taking quite the adjustment. Due in Feb 2021! Wooo

  • Rachel please more meal preps with frozen stuff. You put them in the freezer again or just in the fridge? And also, using microwave or oven to cook them?

  • Am I the online that just find out you don’t have to prep the frozen part of meal prep and just put it in the container if it will be microwaved? I’m amazed!

  • You mention that when you’re meal planning, you should pick meals that share ingredients. Can you please do a video on how you decide what to make when you’re planning your meals? The biggest problem I have when meal planning is trying to make meals that share ingredients that aren’t just 3 different versions of stir-fry…

  • Great tips. Also if you haven’t shopped at Aldi before, I highly recommend them, they have great prices and great quality. Also just wanted to say “hi” because I live in the same area of CT as you!

  • I highly appreciate that you just get straight to the point. I’m tired of watching half an hour long videos with basically the same information. Love it!

  • So grateful I found you videos on youtube! I finally feel like I found someone who explains living a healthy life that is in line with what I can do. Thank you so much! -Katie, BC, Canada

  • My personal advice is to approach the season of fruits and vegetables. I usually buy them and freeze and later I can enjoy them in the winter.There are also many vegatebles which stay a lot of time like patatoes, onions,pumpkins..

  • Pregnancy #3 for me. I knew I was pregnant before I missed my period but my test kept coming back negative. I was having a milder version of symptoms that I had with my other 2. For a minute I thought I was loosing my mind but I knew I wasn’t crazy. I am currently at the implementation stage with very light bleeding. I go for my first OB appointment this week.

  • Just to clarify, Do you normally keep your veg frozen when adding the cooked meat to it (for meal prep)? This is brilliant I never would have though of that! thank you!

  • Another tip, you can use bits of veggies that are often thrown away. The leaves on cauliflower, beets, etc taste great. You can use the cut off ends of veggies for broth too. Tip two, if your veggies wilt, often you can put them in cold water and they’ll come back to life after a while.

  • I went to uni in Australia, so I understand completely when you said that the price of processed food in Australia is insanely expensive. ��

    One good thing is that it drives people (or maybe just me) to cook for myself and therefore having much more healthier option, rather than live somewhere with really cheap processed and take out food that aren’t exactly healthy.

  • Thank you for this! PEople tend to think eating healthy is impossible, but it’s not if you shop smart and buy in bulk/frozen etc.:D

  • I know this might sound silly but is the currency the same price in Canada as in the US? Like no dollar more or less. Like in the UK their pounds are two dollars and something less than the US. Thanks. I never really go out to eat or clothes. Experiences are really important to me.

  • I lose weight in my first trimester.. because my bloated is worst.. bt now im entering 2nd trimester i feel like i can eat more.. because before i can only eat 1 mango then i am already bloated.. bt now i can eat mango then 2bread too:) i want to enjoy eating again.. im expecting twins

  • Great tips that I follow regularly! I’m pathologically frugal & actually keep a list of the cheapest per unit costs of the items I purchase often so I can cost compare when I see something on sale… no matter where I’m shopping! Also, ask about case discounts if you purchase a large quantity of a more expensive item.

  • I would love to know how you shop bulk foods with your own jars? How do you pay for the bulk products at the register? Do you just tell them to subtract the weight of each jar? Would be really nice to take/fill my one jars at the store, never knew this was an option, so I always end up with too much/little in the little baggies when I get home!

  • I can attest to the fact that keto is hella expensive. I’ve eaten a couple different diets and, in my experience, this one wins lol

  • Aldi, Aldi, Aldi! I used to coupon, follow a lot of these tips, etc, but realized nothing has as much financial impact as shopping at Aldi!! ��

  • Hi rachel! first of all, I’ve been a big fan of your videos for a long time, the quality of everything you do is amazing. Now, I have a question, now that you have dropped keto, your diet is still being higher in fat or now is more protein dominant? you’re looking great, and thank you!

  • I pick my own fruits nd vegetables when they are in season at local and nearby farms. For example, there is a sweet potato farm ten minutes from my house and I can pick as many as I want for free! IfI go to a nursery/farm it only costs a few dollars ($5-$8) for a quart size bucket. I live in the states, so I’m not sure what it’s like in other parts of the world. Hope this helps some of you! ��

  • Another thing I do with fruits and vegetables is if they try getting over ripe or I kind of run out of recipe room for them, I will cut them up and freeze them for later. Fruits go into smoothies later and veggies go into stir fry, soups, or any other dish that has veggies in them.

  • Thank you so much for this video!! I like making a list about groceries but sometimes I need a reminder of how important it is and how much it helps!

  • Your hair is looking really soft and healthy! not that it wasn’t before, but I haven’t watched your videos in a while (nothing personal) and I just think it looks nice.

  • Try peapod, I haven’t been in a supermarket for a year now. You can download the app for free. You can look at ingredients in the product. It shows price per unit, it shows sales as well, best of all….. I can be in front of my fridge & cabinets and know what I need as I stand there in my man thong shopping. Click cash out & what time I want delivery & BOOM!!!!! A guy will be delivering it to my kitchen table and I just put stuff away.

  • Awesome video! Hereabouts at Y&S FOOD! we all love to detect this type of contents. We produce Travel & Food video as well, anywhere in the world, and we are always interested in inspirations and vision. Thank You.

  • I wish someone would make an actual coupon Ing video where it breaks it down step-by-step so like step one would be, acquiring the coupons. Then like step two would be whether you’re getting an ad to compare or how that works. Then step three might be you actually going to the store and utilizing those coupons with Sales or what not so we can see how it breaks down step-by-step. I am a beginner at couponing And I have watched several YouTube videos on coupon and I had an epic fail my first time LOL. There are no coupon in classes in my area to take and I’m really wanting to learn this system. I mean like extreme coupon Ing. So I need the part where you’re at the store you’re comparing coupons with Sales and how you get things for $.59 as opposed to two dollars I’m confused on it. So many people break this procedure up into several videos and then you can’t find one, or you just don’t see an important step because it’s in another video etc.

  • As you said you haven’t lived in any other country, in my opinion quality and the price you get for good in Australia is much better than many other countries

  • Such good tips and beautiful to watch as always �� sometimes I try to see how long I can wait to shop, maybe an extra day or two than i initially wanted to and I will get creative with whatever is left in my fridge/freezer/pantry! I’ve come up with some tasty meals this way!

  • I highly appreciate that you just get straight to the point. I’m tired of watching half an hour long videos with basically the same information. Love it!

  • Oooooooo i did not know that you’re pregnant!!!!!!!!…….. welcome to the mom’s club!!! You look pretty…. i hope you’re enjoy your waiting months….

  • Super helpful video! Do you think I’d still be able to get my hands on that acne studios sweatshirt you are wearing? I’m obsessed ��

  • If you are aiming for a healthy diet, why wouldn’t you eat more plant proteins than meats? Even chicken has cholesterol and the nutrients have already passed through that animal that has consumed them. Why not spend less $ and get the nutrients straight from the source? It’s also loads better for the environment and doesn’t cause an animal a life of suffering. Organic, grass fed or free range do nothing for the animal and only make you feel better about purchasing.

  • Thanks for all the great tips. We’ve just bought a house so have to be more thifty and frugal. Got pay those bills and stay ahead.

  • Hi Kallie,
    awesome video (as always)!:-)
    I made everyone in my family use the app “Our Groceries”. We use it for everything. Grocerie shopping divided by different stores, packing lists for vacations, to do lists for the whole family etc.
    It’s so easy to go shopping as a family when everyone can access the list simultaneously and check off what is already in the cart.

  • This is the best video HF can come up with?  It’s a sad state of affairs, truly, when this is level of an “official” video intended to help consumers.

  • Didn’t know that about apples! Good to know. I think there is something deeply wrong with society when you think about the fact that only the middle class and up can afford to eat as healthy as possible. PS: I love that top (?) you’re wearing, the colors are beautiful with your hair!

  • one of the biggest tips i have is that a lot of organic foods in packages; like quinoa, other grains, corn pasta, etc. are expensive because you’re not only paying for the product but also the packaging, SO to somewhat avoid this, i go to places where you can ‘serve yourself’. there are organic food stores that only sell those and you can serve yourself and choose the amount you want and in the end it is cheaper. (ex: instead of paying $6 for quinoa in a box, buy it at $.80 for 100g-which is usually a little less than half a cup) i hope that this made sense to you because it’s a great way to save!!

  • Rachel, I have always been the same as you as far as working out goes…all in for a few months, then burn myself out and do nothing for a while. Until…I discovered Robin Long’s The Balanced Life pilates YouTube videos. They are seriously the best thing ever for a busy mom. The workouts are generally 10 to 15 min or less. I can easily do a workout daily and see great results and since they are so short, it keeps me coming back for more. I actually ENJOY it.:-)

  • Rachel, one thing. You just seem anxious. A little over-smiley, as if you’re hoping for something from us. A body language coach like Vanessa Van Edwards vids here on YT? Praying for you

  • I’m from ND. There actually is a Strasburg, ND which is pretty dang close to the place where, I’m pretty sure, she was just making up. ��

  • No way I am giving my money away, without saving first! Paying myself first is always my priority…. If that makes me selfish, I’m fine with that!

  • I love your show and book but after my debit card was charged for the full year for every dollar plus, my app on my iPhone keeps crashing. Hopefully your IT can figure out a solution!

It’s also loads better for the environment and doesn’t cause an animal a life of suffering. Organic, grass fed or free range do nothing for the animal and only make you feel better about purchasing.

  • I agree 100% about having a list. I actually have a spreadsheet that includes quantities and prices. This allows me to keep to within 10-15% of my budget.

  • I lobe your show, however I’m not sure how those meals are saving anyone money. I guess if the alternative is eating out, it may save a bit. Also, push-ups and planks are not safe for women who have abdominal separation, which many women do.

  • Great tips. Also if you haven’t shopped at Aldi before, I highly recommend them, they have great prices and great quality. Also just wanted to say “hi” because I live in the same area of CT as you!

  • I’m really disappointed you recommended an expensive meal service in this “budget” episode. I’m usually a huge fan, but that felt dirty.

  • I love the Ramseys financial advice but here’s the same thing that gets under my skin about your father’s books. “Women are like this, men are like that” there are billions of women in the world and we are individuals. The same is true of men.

  • I’m a first time mom and Im due feb 10 2021 so im watching this dont know what to expect freaking out may all you ladies have a healthy and safe delivery especially with covid!

  • I’m from ND. There actually is a Strasburg, ND which is pretty dang close to the place where, I’m pretty sure, she was just making up. ��

  • Question about giving…. I don’t have a lot of money to give right now but I have some time. Is time acceptable while trying to be able to give more?

  • Does she speak slowly, I am watching at 2x speed and she sound much more normal than I would expect, does every
    One just sound like that on sped-y
    Up YT Videos?

  • You were so fun to watch when the trainer was showing you some workouts. LOL. I love the look on your face when he told you some of them to do. You remind me of me.

  • Am I the online that just find out you don’t have to prep the frozen part of meal prep and just put it in the container if it will be microwaved? I’m amazed!

  • This is incredibly simplified and doesn’t give any actionable tips for eating healthy on a budget. Frozen pizza can’t even masquerade as health food, and yes, a long ingredient list is your first clue that you’re on the wrong track, so thank goodness it didn’t end up in the cart. But what DOES end up in the cart? Are taking a shopping list with me and reminding myself that I should eat more fruits and veggies supposed to be my big money-saving tips? Also, suggesting someone lower their fat intake without specifying that there are healthy types of fat that are also essential to a balanced diet is irresponsible. As is not specifying where to get carbs and the difference between simple and complex ones. 
    Please do better.

  • I saw your chicken leftover vid a while back and that time your sub count was under 100 and view count was 200 or so, now look at you fly! Great vid btw:)

  • 25 weeks tomorrow boyfriend left me yesterday with no explanation just left while I was at work things are difficult and I’m struggling just want to meet my baby boy now ����

  • I’m really enjoying your newer videos! You seem much happier and look amazing girl! I’m so happy for you. Thanks for the great advice!

  • I completely understand buying all the sale coconut oil you can! That’s how I found a 28oz jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil for $6.50. My folks look at my like I’m crazy and then turn around and ask if I have any coconut oil for their recipes:P (I do)

  • Oh my gosh this was so helpful!!! You’re so straight forward and down to earth!�� I’m starting college soon so this will definitely help! Thank you!✨

  • Home Chef is in no way a budget friendly idea!! Meals are 9.95 PER SERVING!! Thats like eating out every day! I can’t believe the Ramseys are allowing sponsorship (and getting revenue when you click the homechef/racheal link!) from a program that is not at all in line with people cooking on a budget.
    Then we get a plug for “you own the look” where you pay $20 to get some outfit ideas emailed to you?? with links you can click on to buy? Seriously? Encouraging more spending on clothes? How about just encouraging people to look for free on Pinterest. How about re-styling whats in your own closet? Or buying on sale or at a thrift store?
    I mean, if you’re doing well, and this is a small percent of your income (like Rachael Cruze) by all means enjoy but this is NOT a good option for most families needing to save or get out of debt. I can not believe Dave Ramsey would support this!

  • Currently 14 weeks with with my second baby(hoping for a girl this time), being pregnant during a global pandemic is taking quite the adjustment. Due in Feb 2021! Wooo

  • Hey, you mentioned about keeping apples in the fridge to make them stay fresh longer then take out what you need. Great idea, I myself had just discovered that if you put avocado’s in the fruit bin of the fridge then only take out one at time a day or two before you plan to eat it they dont go bad. Another saving money tip. This is ideal for me since most of the time I can only do a big shopping trip once a month. ��

  • hello my name is Chimani Dave i live in Spain, thanks to Dr.OVIA the great spell caster which i contacted for my childless problem after 8 years of bareness in my marriage, Dr.Ovia restore my divorce husband back to me and also make me to become a mother of a baby boy with his powerful spell,i was childless for Eight years in my marriage, because i couldn’t deliver a child for my husband he suddenly get change and told me he is know more interested in me and also divorce me for another woman in USA/florida,then i was looking for a way to reunite with my husband because i love my husband so much, so i came across the internet and i saw different kind of testimony about this great spell caster called Dr, Ovia on how he make people to get a good job, how he restore divorce relationship back,how he make spiritual powerful magic,and i also saw one particular testimony about this woman called babli Anyoti from UAE,testifying how Dr.Ovia help her to deliver a baby girl with his spell casting,so i contacted Dr.Ovia for help and i explain how my husband divorce me for another woman and my childless situation to him, he only told me that my problems will be solve soon once i fallow his instructions, so Dr.Ovia cast a restoration spell on my husband within the next 48 hours time my divorce husband came back home begging me for forgiveness i was so happy because of the good work of the great Ovia, and i continue making love sex with my husband after 1 months of settlement between i and my husband i got pregnant,and today i’m a mother of a baby boy named Fenardo dave, now i’m very happy and great full to Dr.Ovia for his good work, if you are at there passing through any kind of problem contact Dr.Ovia through this email address; [email protected] gmail.com or Call him on what-app +2348155898685, he will solve your problem also.for more information contact me through this email; [email protected] gmail.com

  • I also check store’s clearance shelves because many a time there are products that might be slightly overripe or packaged items that are one or two days past their sell-by date. I often get large bags of spotted bananas which I freeze for smoothies, or veg that go really well in soups or stir fries. I also price match, but I’m not sure if you guys have that. Basically I have an app that shows me all the local grocery sales, and I take it to my store and if their price is higher they give you that discount price. If you have an Asian supermarket anywhere nearby (often near Chinatown) their produce is often much less. It’s all about developing a relationship with your food, knowing what is good/can be salvaged and in season, and taking advantage of stores who insist on selling “perfect” food. I’ve somehow made it work as a vegetarian on $35/week (so unfortunately no tips for meat eaters).

  • The flu shot has NEVER been tested for safety during pregnancy. It says so on the package insert. It is believed to actually increase your chance of miscarriage. Please do you research into vaxx more than just this video.

  • I’m due December 26, 2020! Congratulations to all the COVID generation mamas! �� I pray for happy and healthy babies for you all ���� ��

  • Very intelligent lady! Don’t feel bad about not giving if you can’t afford it. Give some money to friends and family in need. Buy a meal for a homeless person and leave good tip.

  • You mention that when you’re meal planning, you should pick meals that share ingredients. Can you please do a video on how you decide what to make when you’re planning your meals? The biggest problem I have when meal planning is trying to make meals that share ingredients that aren’t just 3 different versions of stir-fry…

  • I lose weight in my first trimester.. because my bloated is worst.. bt now im entering 2nd trimester i feel like i can eat more.. because before i can only eat 1 mango then i am already bloated.. bt now i can eat mango then 2bread too:) i want to enjoy eating again.. im expecting twins

  • My first time being pregnant I’m due in Dec. I’m not sure what I’m having yet but I’m excited and nervous ��. Congratulations to a good the new mommy’s and soon to be��

  • Try peapod, I haven’t been in a supermarket for a year now. You can download the app for free. You can look at ingredients in the product. It shows price per unit, it shows sales as well, best of all….. I can be in front of my fridge & cabinets and know what I need as I stand there in my man thong shopping. Click cash out & what time I want delivery & BOOM!!!!! A guy will be delivering it to my kitchen table and I just put stuff away.

  • So I am 25 weeks and 1 day today and I have known that I was pregnant since I was like 4 or 5 weeks I feel like I have been pregnant for sooooo long and I’m just so excited to meet my baby girl. With this pandemic going on my biggest anxiety isn’t even labor it’s if my boyfriend will be allowed to be there or not

  • I’m 20 and pregnant with my first, I thought I was infertile until I did a pregnancy test and it said I’m 2-3 weeks pregnant, I’m now around 7 weeks with bad sickness and it’s horrible, but I’m due march and me and my partner are so excited! I hope that all you mummies to be has a great pregnancy and delivery. And that it’s okay to be scared! ❤️❤️

  • So how do you eat healthier when: 1. There are no grocery stores in your area. 2. The stores near your home do not offer very good or healthy items. 3. You are on public assistance. Need to feed a family of 4 or more.

  • Didn’t know that about apples! Good to know. I think there is something deeply wrong with society when you think about the fact that only the middle class and up can afford to eat as healthy as possible. PS: I love that top (?) you’re wearing, the colors are beautiful with your hair!

  • My personal advice is to approach the season of fruits and vegetables. I usually buy them and freeze and later I can enjoy them in the winter.There are also many vegatebles which stay a lot of time like patatoes, onions,pumpkins..

  • This is my 45th video with you and WOW today I actually DID DID NOT buy a convention oven that I DID NOT NEED! but oh, it was half price HALF and oh I almost… almost… yet realized what comes first… my integrity! I would have only ended up giving it away and, thus, would have lost that “half” of income. THANK YOU for your consistent advice to live a “nicer” lifestyle…

  • A lot of stores have curbside pick up. I shop online for my food, then pick it up. Sooo much easier! I don’t over spend and I don’t have kids dragging me everywhere.

  • As you said you haven’t lived in any other country, in my opinion quality and the price you get for good in Australia is much better than many other countries

  • This is a brilliant, beautiful-looking, and useful video. I might try to apply some for myself. The thing is I currently live with my family and their diet is not the healthiest, with plenty of snacks, instant noodles always stocked in the pantry, and a lot of deep fried, flour coated food. There’s always vegetable soup, but even that is usually rather heavily seasoned. I ended up always sautéing or steaming my own spinach or and boiling my own eggs, but nevertheless this video is still helpful.

  • Love your channel and you Rachel.

    Also hooked on your friend/roommate Rachel Lee too!!

    Any chance you can do a video on how to initially set up with kitchen larder, kitchen utensils and equipment for making meals and meal prep but with your minimalist thinking/design??

    I am in the process of setting up my first purchases for my own kitchen and just want a slimline collection of kitchen items and also be health conscious when purchasing too? I suffer with Hashimoto’s Thyroid issue since I was young and am always discovering new issues that cause my issues to get worse. I’ve recently discovered i need to stay away from storing food in plastics and using pans/cooking pots that have teflon coating as they are chemicals which in turn slowly poison and cause extra fatigue on my body to filter out….

    Any advice or tips you’ve picked up I would (and many others) would be eternally grateful.
    Love and blessings xxxx

  • As much as I love the idea of meal kits, the amount of packaging waste is terrible. This day in age should be about less to zero waste, not adding more to the landfills. The Idea is great but the carbon footprint is too much. As little time as i have to meal prep, i rather just go to the supermarket to get all my stuff. that’s what weekends are for, to meal prep for the work week.

  • Rachel please more meal preps with frozen stuff. You put them in the freezer again or just in the fridge? And also, using microwave or oven to cook them?

  • It is worth looking into preserving seasonal produce canning/pickling/freezing, also commercially frozen vegetables and fruits can offer better value than fresh out of season.  Personally i have found using frozen and canned vegetables make my food waste close to nil and improves portion control. Where i live there are no organic food stores only the large national retailers, to buy grains and pulses cheaper I get together with some friends and family and do a group buy from online retailers in 25kg/55lb bags. When the bags get delivered we have a sort of sharing out party combined with potluck meal. Oh and if you can grow your own even if it in a window box.

  • My grocery hauls are all 90% healthy and under a 100 each week for a family of five. I love a challenge! Love this channel! I upload my grocery and meal plans on my channel. Oh and my husband is the emotional one and I’m the cut to the chase.

  • Super helpful video! Do you think I’d still be able to get my hands on that acne studios sweatshirt you are wearing? I’m obsessed ��

  • I’m due December 26, 2020! Congratulations to all the COVID generation mamas! �� I pray for happy and healthy babies for you all ���� ��

  • So grateful I found you videos on youtube! I finally feel like I found someone who explains living a healthy life that is in line with what I can do. Thank you so much! -Katie, BC, Canada

  • ze one and only meal prep queen! loved the editing as always xx
    another tip though ; everytime i shop just an hour or so before the store closes most of the products have usually a discount.

  • that is strange about the water before a scan. because my OB wants an empty one every time. Also confused on how 18weeks is 4 months but 23 is 6 six months according to doctor charts…

  • Another tip, you can use bits of veggies that are often thrown away. The leaves on cauliflower, beets, etc taste great. You can use the cut off ends of veggies for broth too. Tip two, if your veggies wilt, often you can put them in cold water and they’ll come back to life after a while.

  • I went to uni in Australia, so I understand completely when you said that the price of processed food in Australia is insanely expensive. ��

    One good thing is that it drives people (or maybe just me) to cook for myself and therefore having much more healthier option, rather than live somewhere with really cheap processed and take out food that aren’t exactly healthy.

  • Can confirm:
    In the US getting a week’s worth of fresh produce and meats are unreasonably more expensive than say… getting boxes of mac ‘n’ cheese and hamburger helper or ordering off the $1 menu at McDonald’s. Being poor totally screws with your health when you only have enough food for today.

  • For someone who is currently trying to eat as healthy as possible to clear their skin & tone up, but also save for travel and life in general this is perfect! Great video as always girl xx also your EDITING!! Teach me your ways!

  • could you pls make a video where you show us tips on how to go grocery shopping so that the food you buy will not just be finished in one week or so

  • Great tips! I will definitely have to check out the blogs you mentioned! I would love to see what you eat on a regular day with prices to match!

  • I can attest to the fact that keto is hella expensive. I’ve eaten a couple different diets and, in my experience, this one wins lol

  • Such good tips and beautiful to watch as always �� sometimes I try to see how long I can wait to shop, maybe an extra day or two than i initially wanted to and I will get creative with whatever is left in my fridge/freezer/pantry! I’ve come up with some tasty meals this way!

  • I pick my own fruits nd vegetables when they are in season at local and nearby farms. For example, there is a sweet potato farm ten minutes from my house and I can pick as many as I want for free! IfI go to a nursery/farm it only costs a few dollars ($5-$8) for a quart size bucket. I live in the states, so I’m not sure what it’s like in other parts of the world. Hope this helps some of you! ��

  • Organic food in Canada is super expensive most of the time. Really have to look for bargains. I find that Costco is the best place for the quality and variety. Gotta have the best for my family and not have to refinance the house! Lol

  • Holy crap avocados where I’m at rarely go over 99¢ each!
    I try to eat well, prob not as “healthy” as I should, but budget wise when I but junk I spend more money and it always gets wasted. When I buy produce I tend to eat it because I feel guilty about it going bad.

  • I use a handwritten grocery list and write down a running total as I mark each item off. Even if I don’t have a budget, it keeps me mentally accountable for how much I’m spending. The visual really helps

  • Aldi, Aldi, Aldi! I used to coupon, follow a lot of these tips, etc, but realized nothing has as much financial impact as shopping at Aldi!! ��

  • I’m really enjoying your newer videos! You seem much happier and look amazing girl! I’m so happy for you. Thanks for the great advice!

  • Hello. Love your videos. I wonder if you could help me. I am doing slimming world, which allows, pasta, rice, potatoes etc, also lean meats, fish and tons of vegetables, eggs etc. I am over weight but in the process of losing it. I have been absolutely exhausted and diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency which is mainly sun light but wondered if you could recomend food high in vitamin d. x

  • Oat milk is pretty easy to make yourself. I just started to make it myself. Tons of videos online showing how to make it. There are also ways to use the pulp if you don’t want to waste it. ��

  • Your hair is looking really soft and healthy! not that it wasn’t before, but I haven’t watched your videos in a while (nothing personal) and I just think it looks nice.

  • I should do a more realistic video of how to eat healthy on a budget. I’m on disability so I really am on a budget and when you’re on a budget you DO NOT buy organic. I will make a video soon of me buying on a budget shopping not at a organic store. I shop like a real person at Walmart or fresh co or food basics. This video isn’t realistic because if you’re on a budget you’re not going to a special shop and you don’t care about organic.

  • For me organic food is so much expensive because it’s not from my home country, so I try to buy my vegetables from local farmers. I would love more tips for eating less meat and being more sustainable with eating. I feel like it’s hard to find good recipes for food that don’t have meat proteins. Also would love to see a freezer 101 type video, everything that can go in it and tips on storage and cleaning for it also.

  • My first time being pregnant I’m due in Dec. I’m not sure what I’m having yet but I’m excited and nervous ��. Congratulations to a good the new mommy’s and soon to be��

  • I live in the UK so I appreciate there is a difference in the exchange rate but I find your grocery prices very expensiveI mean, 6 CAD for 3 avocados?I shop in the biggest chain store here, Tesco and can get 4 avocados for £1.79 (3.48 CAD) and 6.99 CAD for what looked like a 500g box of cereal (shredded wheat)?A similar 675g box of Nestle’s shredded wheat is £2.70 (4.64 CAD or 3.43 CAD weight equivalent).

  • Oooooooo i did not know that you’re pregnant!!!!!!!!…….. welcome to the mom’s club!!! You look pretty…. i hope you’re enjoy your waiting months….

  • Love your channel but these prices are insane. I can’t afford to eat organic, but my money goes further by price matching and shopping regular chain stores. I scored avocados for $1 each this week at No Frills. Family of 5 so I need to stretch my bucks.

  • I put the broccoli stalks in the food processor and chop them into matchsticks and add carrots and cabbage to make the same type of “broccoli slaw salad “ sold for about $4 a bag. It saves a lot of money in the end because most people throw out the (just as) nutritious broccoli stems ����

  • Love the tips! Look forward to your videos all week! Love youuuuu girlll! Can’t wait for the eco friendly grocery haul! Always looking for new eco tips. Xoxo ����������

  • Where are you located? the store you’re at is really expensive. do you have an Aldi in your area? I was just there and organic bananas for $0.51 a pound avocados are $0.59 each, grapes 99 cent pound, organic apples $1.49 pound, vanilla almond milk $1.79 half gallon, and a lot of great prices. I like seeing you shop but your budget is high compared to us on a “budget”. those prices that you showed us are like Whole Foods which I never could shop at cuz they’re too expensive.

  • The expiration on cereal boxes goes past that actual date. You will have at least a few more months before it goes bad as long as it’s not opened. They put the date on as a suggestion to keep turn around going in the stores.

  • I lobe your show, however I’m not sure how those meals are saving anyone money. I guess if the alternative is eating out, it may save a bit. Also, push-ups and planks are not safe for women who have abdominal separation, which many women do.

  • I’m amazed at how expensive the produce is! I live in Texas and our organic produce is much more affordable and my local grocery store.

  • Another thing I do with fruits and vegetables is if they try getting over ripe or I kind of run out of recipe room for them, I will cut them up and freeze them for later. Fruits go into smoothies later and veggies go into stir fry, soups, or any other dish that has veggies in them.

  • Pregnancy #3 for me. I knew I was pregnant before I missed my period but my test kept coming back negative. I was having a milder version of symptoms that I had with my other 2. For a minute I thought I was loosing my mind but I knew I wasn’t crazy. I am currently at the implementation stage with very light bleeding. I go for my first OB appointment this week.

  • Thanks for the tips.

    We only have one local organic food store chain in Winnipeg and the prices are double for organic produce. It is not affordable unfortunately.

  • You were so fun to watch when the trainer was showing you some workouts. LOL. I love the look on your face when he told you some of them to do. You remind me of me.

  • Awesome video! Hereabouts at Y&S FOOD! we all love to detect this type of contents. We produce Travel & Food video as well, anywhere in the world, and we are always interested in inspirations and vision. Thank You.

  • So how do you eat healthier when: 1. There are no grocery stores in your area. 2. The stores near your home do not offer very good or healthy items. 3. You are on public assistance. Need to feed a family of 4 or more.

  • A lot of the time the name brand companies make the off brand food so you are basically getting the same thing. I work for a Kroger owned store in Arizona and supposedly our brand bread is made by Sara Lee brand. Also join your store’s rewards club/app. I almost never buy anything now that doesn’t have a coupon. Some times they even produce and meat coupons

  • The markets here in Sydney, or at least the ones that I know of, tend to be more expensive that produce from Woolies or Coles, is there a certain type of markets you would suggest or know of that are cheaper?

  • I’m pregnant due March 2021! I had a stillbirth with my last pregnancy so it’s pretty scary. I love how inclusive these videos are though! X

  • Great tips but I cannot believe the price on Canadian food. In the UK we can get bag of onions for 0.60p which is like 1 dollar or a premium carton of nut milk would work out to 1.7cad. Crazy!

  • I’m due Early December with my first baby, I’m really nervous don’t know the gender yet, but im looking forward to being the best mom I can be, hope I have a safe pregnancy and goes for other moms aswell god bless everyone

  • Pregnant with my first child. I’m nervous because my family is in California and I’m in New York. With covid happening, I’m not able to see them.

  • No way I am giving my money away, without saving first! Paying myself first is always my priority…. If that makes me selfish, I’m fine with that!

  • So true about pre-cut fruit/veggies. I literally just came from grocery shopping (putting away my groceries while watching this.). I wanted some watermelon. I was hoping for a small piece that I could cut up, but my options were only a whole seedless watermelon for 29 cents per pound or. presided for $3.99 per pound. The small container of pre-sliced was $5.99, The smallest watermelon I could find was 13.52 pounds and came to $3.92. I will probably fill 3-4 containers from this entire melon! (Guessing here). I don’t even think it will take me a long time to slice. Maybe 1-2 YouTube videos.:)

  • Thanks for all the great tips. We’ve just bought a house so have to be more thifty and frugal. Got pay those bills and stay ahead.

  • Hi Kallie,
    awesome video (as always)!:-)
    I made everyone in my family use the app “Our Groceries”. We use it for everything. Grocerie shopping divided by different stores, packing lists for vacations, to do lists for the whole family etc.
    It’s so easy to go shopping as a family when everyone can access the list simultaneously and check off what is already in the cart.

  • It is worth looking into preserving seasonal produce canning/pickling/freezing, also commercially frozen vegetables and fruits can offer better value than fresh out of season.  Personally i have found using frozen and canned vegetables make my food waste close to nil and improves portion control. Where i live there are no organic food stores only the large national retailers, to buy grains and pulses cheaper I get together with some friends and family and do a group buy from online retailers in 25kg/55lb bags. When the bags get delivered we have a sort of sharing out party combined with potluck meal. Oh and if you can grow your own even if it in a window box.

  • I love when you talked about comparing what people spend on. My friend told me once going organic grocery shopping is so expensive and it can be if you are not careful. I always try to look for sales, here in the states sprouts has sales on Wednesday’s. And I also told my friend, you eat out almost every day, you got expensive headphones and iPhone, good brand clothes etc. My luxury is going to sprouts, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s… so we all choose what we want to spend on ��

  • Firstly, my grocery shop can be no more than $100 a week and I’m lucky my roommate and I do this together so it’s cheaper. Secondly, how upsetting that all the cheapest options are in packages. I always find my carrots, onions, tomatoes in plastic, but the loose ones somehow are more expensive. Thirdly, I’ll look into dirty dozen but it’s very unrealistic to buy 80% of your produce organically

  • So many “self-help” things out there but I love that Rachel always ties in the practical, money management components! Not a lot of young women out there doing the money component of healthy, balanced living. Thank you Rachel! I LOVE to listen and watch!

  • Home Chef is in no way a budget friendly idea!! Meals are 9.95 PER SERVING!! Thats like eating out every day! I can’t believe the Ramseys are allowing sponsorship (and getting revenue when you click the homechef/racheal link!) from a program that is not at all in line with people cooking on a budget.
    Then we get a plug for “you own the look” where you pay $20 to get some outfit ideas emailed to you?? with links you can click on to buy? Seriously? Encouraging more spending on clothes? How about just encouraging people to look for free on Pinterest. How about re-styling whats in your own closet? Or buying on sale or at a thrift store?
    I mean, if you’re doing well, and this is a small percent of your income (like Rachael Cruze) by all means enjoy but this is NOT a good option for most families needing to save or get out of debt. I can not believe Dave Ramsey would support this!

  • Thank you for this! PEople tend to think eating healthy is impossible, but it’s not if you shop smart and buy in bulk/frozen etc.:D

  • Rachel, I have always been the same as you as far as working out goes…all in for a few months, then burn myself out and do nothing for a while. Until…I discovered Robin Long’s The Balanced Life pilates YouTube videos. They are seriously the best thing ever for a busy mom. The workouts are generally 10 to 15 min or less. I can easily do a workout daily and see great results and since they are so short, it keeps me coming back for more. I actually ENJOY it.:-)

  • Rachel, one thing. You just seem anxious. A little over-smiley, as if you’re hoping for something from us. A body language coach like Vanessa Van Edwards vids here on YT? Praying for you

  • UTI’s… The story of my life�� 13 weeks & 2 days pregnant & I’ve already had 3 UTI’s. Please pray for me. On top of all the morning sickness plus the UTIs I’ve been miserable. I just want to enjoy being pregnant. 2nd baby. My son is 13. I pray for all the mommy’s out here to have healthy / safe pregnancies and deliveries��

  • Can confirm:
    In the US getting a week’s worth of fresh produce and meats are unreasonably more expensive than say… getting boxes of mac ‘n’ cheese and hamburger helper or ordering off the $1 menu at McDonald’s. Being poor totally screws with your health when you only have enough food for today.

  • I love your show and book but after my debit card was charged for the full year for every dollar plus, my app on my iPhone keeps crashing. Hopefully your IT can figure out a solution!

  • Just to clarify, Do you normally keep your veg frozen when adding the cooked meat to it (for meal prep)? This is brilliant I never would have though of that! thank you!

  • My grocery hauls are all 90% healthy and under a 100 each week for a family of five. I love a challenge! Love this channel! I upload my grocery and meal plans on my channel. Oh and my husband is the emotional one and I’m the cut to the chase.

  • I am big into budgeting. I find it cheaper to basic/in season foods(fruit/veg/rice/pasta) also canned/frozen food and make my own meals. Junk food isn’t cheap! �� great video

  • So many great tips! My staples are all based around rice, legumes, and vegetables, which are all super cheap! So versatile & healthy ��

  • I don’t know if I’m pregnant ����‍♀️ my last period was 4 months ago but I’m getting occasional back pains, an added cup size, acid reflux, IBS, and runny nose. I’ve gained about 15lbs since the beginning of the year. I’ve taken about 6 or 7 pregnancy tests since March but all negative �� If Aunt Flo is playing a trick on me, this is just cruel:/

  • I love the Ramseys financial advice but here’s the same thing that gets under my skin about your father’s books. “Women are like this, men are like that” there are billions of women in the world and we are individuals. The same is true of men.

  • Hi rachel! first of all, I’ve been a big fan of your videos for a long time, the quality of everything you do is amazing. Now, I have a question, now that you have dropped keto, your diet is still being higher in fat or now is more protein dominant? you’re looking great, and thank you!

  • Very intelligent lady! Don’t feel bad about not giving if you can’t afford it. Give some money to friends and family in need. Buy a meal for a homeless person and leave good tip.

  • Question about giving…. I don’t have a lot of money to give right now but I have some time. Is time acceptable while trying to be able to give more?

  • Whenever I watch these videos I get shocked when I see “Allison B.” in the contacts. My name is Allison and my maiden initial was B (I was married nearly a year ago, so it’s still really fresh that my name changed!). I feel like that mom to be is my friend I hope she calls me to talk about this pregnancy… haha! Thanks for the helpful videos and the fun visuals.

  • I saw your chicken leftover vid a while back and that time your sub count was under 100 and view count was 200 or so, now look at you fly! Great vid btw:)

  • Hello. Love your videos. I wonder if you could help me. I am doing slimming world, which allows, pasta, rice, potatoes etc, also lean meats, fish and tons of vegetables, eggs etc. I am over weight but in the process of losing it. I have been absolutely exhausted and diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency which is mainly sun light but wondered if you could recomend food high in vitamin d. x

  • Great tips! I will definitely have to check out the blogs you mentioned! I would love to see what you eat on a regular day with prices to match!

  • I completely understand buying all the sale coconut oil you can! That’s how I found a 28oz jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil for $6.50. My folks look at my like I’m crazy and then turn around and ask if I have any coconut oil for their recipes:P (I do)
