  • I’ve read an article that says the amount of calories in a specific ingredient changes according to the cooking method you use.

    How do I know how many calories are in a food after cooking it?

    Just an example: let’s say I make a burger and melt some cheese on the top of it, I know how many calories are in the cheese raw, but how do i know the amount that it has after melted?

  • 5 dozen eggs costs 5$ where I live. Gallon of milk 2$. Reading all the comments makes me feel fortunate to be American? I guess! Besides all the racism and prejudice?

  • a little under 2 cents per protein?

    A little under 5 cents per protein…?

    It feels like your asking questions or about to say something else…

  • Thank you! I’m really struggling hitting my protein and for me it’s the most important. The closer I hit that macro every day, the better I feel!

  • I purchase 2 rotissiere chickens from my local grocery store and snack on chicken all week. $14 investment for a week’s worth of good and tasty protein!

  • can I suggest, when you make a video to make things visible, i cant see any of those proteins what they are without audio. some people watch these videos at work, or cannot use the sound, so we just watch, not even one of those cans is visible what it actually is.

  • I remember my mum always making various vinaigrette sauces for our salads but she never added the zests (let’s be honest, kids don’t like anything flowing in the sauce) but now, I am adding some pretty much every time:D Also, such a great concept to use dates as a sweetener! Will have to try it out next time!
    Also, lemon-tahini dressing is probably my go-to not only for salads ;D So delicious( I love tahini so much I sometimes just eat it with a spoon XD) and incredibly simple to make!

  • I’ve been vegan going on 8 years or so, and I think it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! But when I see some vegan recipe videos they’re either very bland, or super junk food. It’s nice to see someone making healthy food taste amazing! And I’m actually learning new tips and tricks!

  • yum yum..i loathe shop bought dressings… you dont know what they put in em but gross for sure n yes always think outside the box.keeps life interesting hee hee..i love my salads..i made one last night as warmer weather cant beat a fresh salad n i roasted butternut squash with chili flakes… garlic salt pepper n popped chic peas n greens etc.it was a deeeelight… never just have greens n raw…too many awesome veggies out there to play with…great video never thought of raw fennel…genius ����


  • Jahnes love Kristina. Wow!!! I gotta try this recipe. And I gotta get a Kuvings! OMG! Mufasa has grown soo much! Your hair is almost pass your butt! Blessed love.

  • Love these salad!! Would of love a close up view and less talking but i understand about letting us know the benefits of the foods..which is a win also! So thank you��

  • I’m interested to see more dishes, that incorporate soaked beans… Is that possible??? It would still be fully raw, correct??? So many questions ��

  • thank you for the recipes,but you did not name the liquid in the dark brwon bottle in the first salad recipe it looks like olive oil is that what it is? I always enjoy your channel you bring so much useful content! ( Judy )

  • Why do people keep talking about Greek yoghurt? I am not familiar with it, but I saw two-three packs in the supermarket here in Germany and the protein content wasn’t that much. I buy grained cheese (which I know isn’t yoghurt, but it is better in protein content than the available cottage cheese) and quark

  • If you’re living in western or north-western Europe, look up Quark in your local store, amazing source of casein and really cheap.

  • Have you tried dprioutjgn super seeds such as broccoli sprouts or alfalfa seeds? They are the MOST micronutrient rich and great to add to salads

  • Short, sweet, and to the pointyou’ve earned a like my friend.

    I’m surprised that you didn’t mention chicken breast though. It’s probably the best bang for your buck in terms of protein.

  • except I am now carb sensitive and can’t do very much in the way of carbs so no beans or lentils for me, I was doing a 90% vegan diet but had to give that up to get rid of the carbs because it’s very carby

  • I’m one year one two months a vegan yayyy!!! wish I have those super power blenders though ������ sending love and light from Miami Florida ������

  • Too Much Fish = Mercury Poisoning
    Dairy Products = Stomach Issues
    Eggs = Erectile Dysfunction

    Beans and lentils are fine. Anything else is questionable

  • I heard a few friends talking about the diet “loli special plan” and made the decision to Google it for myself. It has completely improved my life for the better. I lost 17.8 pounds.

  • Speaking of protein, have you had any experience with TVP? I’ve recently started using it as a meat substitute on days I want to go meatless but I feel a little apprehensive and don’t know why.

  • I’ve never considered topping my salads with dill, such a great idea!
    P.s. let’s take a minute to appreciate the colour of your jumpsuit, it looks SO good on you. Have you ever heard about colour analysis? I’m not an expert at all but I assume you are a “deep winter”… that turquoise is definitely included in your colour palette
    ( https://www.instagram.com/p/B7qWf76IE77/?igshid=1nhh0w4ab0u8o).
    Colour analysis is a huge trend here in Italy, hoping you will find it useful ❤️

  • Made all three dressings right now and they are all amazing!! Can’t pick a favorite cause they all have a different flavor. Seriously love them all!! Easy to make too.

  • I am starting intermittent fasting again. I had a rest from it. I came across this video and I must say the Host Ed Mylett and his guest Dr Ian Smith are both humble and gracious people. I appreciate your interview. fantastic!!

  • I made the salad with apple and Gorgonzola and poppy seed dressing last week. It was awesome and very filling… I can’t wait to try the other 2 soon!! Thanks for these great ideas!!!!

  • Girls should never ever use weights on their arms a lot.bulking up takes your boobs away.all gym nuts have fake boobs.look at their bony chests in the middle of their boobs.just do regular exercises.train the rest of your body not arms with weights.
    Fat moves from boobs to side then you look like a man.

  • incorrect 12 hours aint shit fat burning dont start till the 17th hour….i been on IF for 3 years in a row now…….if your rellly fat like the average american is than 12 wont do shit……

  • This is a blessing especially this one ( Don’t do things becouse it’s expected of you ) omg this is great message God bless you guys

  • It really works Iost over 40 lbs. Now I do eat pizza but only gluten free and with vegetables only. I was told that if you do not go to the bathroom within 2 to 4 hours then your body is having a hard time breaking it down. This rule has worked for me. I get a lot of compliments and ask me how I am getting younger.

  • This issue of water before and after meals is quite confusing for me, here dr Ian says you can have your water just before your meal, have heard from other sources that taking water shortly before meals dilutes the digestive juices!!!so now which is which?

  • Most of his “advice” is great. I am not sure about drinking water right before you eat because that dilutes your stomach acids. That’s why it’s best not to drink during meals. Best is to drink 20 minutes before and 20 minutes after, perhaps, if you want/need.

  • I loved this. I was looking for information on intermediate fasting and ended up getting more than what I originally came for. This conversation was so intriguing, I will definitely be adding this book to my reading list.
    Awesome segment, Thank you gentleman.

  • Clean eating and salads have been and are my lifestyle choice with green juice for almost 10years now…love all these options.. please do more cooking videos xxxx

  • I’m trying to add more plant based option to my diet, and I am binging your videos for tasty ideas!!! Thank you! Also where do you get your bowls from? They are so cute and I love the variety!

  • Awesome page we have your book. I like the instant pot you got me to like store bought greens. New friend. I subscribed.������

  • There are no essential carbs. I have never been healthier with more energy since ceasing carbs. You have no understanding of Keto. Some people can’t process carbs without becoming inflamed. You have a lot to learn.

  • Love these ideas. It is ready menu for vegans like me. I made a nice chart for my family and friends so they can pick and choose any dressing from three, choose any fresh veg, crunch and fresh herbs. Brilliant!

  • My second comment after watching / absorbing this info a few times 1. When knowledge speaks it comes across much clearer and concise as opposed to internet bros who think they know something. 2. Host genuinely interested in the point of view and didn’t get in the way. 3. Made me more motivated to chase a better lifestyle for myself. Great job

  • Wow!! what an interesting interview. This is my first time watching your program, but not my last. Got a lot of information. Keep it up!

  • Just came across your channel and I’m loving it! Finding easy and tasty ways to eat healthy is the hardest thing for me. Keep up the awesome content!

    Herbal supplements have existed for thousands of years and can be traced over several different cultures. For now. Herbs are now used to cure diabetics, herpes, chronic pain, asthma,hepatitis b, cancer, ALS, Ovarian Cyst and even  GENITAL HERPES. I like herbs so much. Most of the time, the injection and the drug are only a loss of duration. I was cured of GENITAL HERPES  last year with the use of herbs, I suffered from GENITAL HERPES  for 13 years, but with the help of DR. Hazim Usman  Herbal Medicine, I was cured in a few weeks of using the herbs he sent me by UPS Service Delivery. I don’t know the kind of health problem you are facing right now, but I assured you that you will be cured if you contact Dr. Hazim Usman and explain your problem to him, that the issues will resolve in a few weeks, contact Dr. Hazim Usman via his e-mail address:-( [email protected] )-or reach him via

  • i’m sorry but you talk way too much, i’d like to see the recipe and the video to be a bit shorter and cut off the useless stuff + pls film closer so we can see from a better angle

  • Excellent interview! I enjoyed every minute. Thank you Dr. Ian for all your knowledge on eating healthier. You life experience..going to College,,talking about your single mother raising 2sons( I have 3 ) I’m so glad to hear that you’re a God fearing Man! God Bless you mightily! You Guys conversation was on point. My sister and niece were trying to do keto…l knew it wasn’t the best for them to do. So I shared your interview just now. Thank you so much. You’ve truly inspired me to lose weight without feeling miserable about doing it. Take care! ����

  • Wonderful interview gentlemen! Full of golden nuggets; practical advice and precious anecdotes. ‘ll look forward to the next one:)

  • I just recently began my vegan journey, i don’t have my period for almost 5 years and i should take medication every single day and i don’t want to do drugs technically..will i ever getmy period back on vegan healthydiet?

  • You are such a lovely Nut! The chickpea episode cracked me up! And great at presenting yummy, nutritious food that’s not too complicated. Thank you!

  • Well, update. Dr. Smith is a shill. He has evidently signed a deal with the devil and now it’s come back to bite him. He sold his soul for ‘success’. Intelligent guy. Pizza in New York? Rainbow Cake Chicago Bulls? I knew something was out of place. Hope it was worth is Dr. Smith. IT. ALL. ENDS. SOON. THIS -> https://twitter.com/DrIanSmith/status/1288120209669152768

  • Mr. Mylett and Dr. Smith. I don’t know either one of you. Until now, I had never even seen either one of your faces. BRAVO! THIS video I just forwarded onto my three sons as a MUST WATCH (17, 14, 12) -> “Fellas,… a MUST WATCH… from start to finish… don’t miss the end!!” Thank you so much.

  • Dr. Smith I am over weight. I broke my back & lost 20% of my height.
    I am way older than U R so I have almost no hormones.
    My Leptin, insulin & cortisol R messed up.
    I can’t afford to see a Functional Doctor, so can’t get tested.
    I know about Dr. Westin Childs who isn’t covered by my insurance & is in Az.
    I am in Ca.
    The only way I ever lost the deep fat which is in my belly.
    I am in so much pain via AS,OA,FM COPD & the diabetes issues..
    So I can’t exercise due to excruciating pain.
    I do try to fast. have no problem not eating for hours, but I am not losing any weight.
    I do walk as best I can when the pain isn’t so bad I can’t take a step.
    So how can I ever lose a lb??

    I’m really at the end of my rope.
    I eat pretty clean. I don’t eat much processed food.
    I eat some fresh fruit,some meat,fish, & veggies.
    Very little dairy. Some eggs & some lactose free cream or nut milks.
    I try to drink as much water as I can,but I have bladder issues meaning I must go to the bathroom every 10 mins.
    Anyhow hope U have some ideas for me…
    I am on my own in horrific pain 24/7 so doing most things R such a chore.
    I do take supplements.
    What has me confused is should I take bio identical hormones, NMN, HGH or other things to put my body back into my younger years?

  • Google “lyly amazing guide” to get the best diet plan in the world. It quickly delivers incredible results to users. I’ve already slipped 10 lbs in less than 7 days.

  • Finally, someone else touts the wonderful flavor of dill! I’ve been making DILLicious salads and soups for years and haven’t seen anyone else mention it.
    Woo hoo. Get your fill of dill!
    Thanks doc!

  • He is correct about the upper crust. They are very sly devious and cunning. Fueled by ego greed lust for power and control. Sone of the worst traits in a man.

  • Great interviewee authentic and informative. And a great interviewer brilliant to see such humility and courtesy towards the guest. Refreshing for YouTube!

  • I just found your channel the other day and I’m enjoying your videos so much. The recipes look delicious and aren’t just a repeat of what every vegan channel puts out. And your personality is lovely! Can’t wait to try some of your recipes to mix up my rotation. Especially some Indian ones, that always seems like an overwhelming genre of food to cook.

  • I made the second and third ones and they are SOOOO GOOODDDD. Thank you! This will help my weight loss journey. It’s so easy for salads to taste plain and gross but these are yummers!!!!

  • These look soooo good! I have been looking for recipe’s for salads… these are perfect.
    A really good salad I discovered is a romain, pear, pecan and goat cheese salad with poppy seed dressing. Really good!

  • Hi these look delicious, can’t wait to try them and thank you, thank you, thank you for including the ingredients! I didn’t have to stop and start the video multiple times to write them all down. Great tip to share with others. Thanks again:-)

  • Great Informative Video! Here’s a Suggestion Hey, I have been having good weight loss success on my new Shake meal program! Takeahealthjump.com I have been losing more inches however, lots of Brain Energy! All you need to do is try 1 bag to become a believer! I recommend the CORE (Whey) or VPro (Plant Based)! No Soy or Sucralose!

  • Kristina, eating some vegetables like peppers do not set me well, and if the vegetables are hard is difficult for me to chew, I cannot eat big portions. I have lost many pounds, not as strong as I would like to be. I feel very hungry sometimes. What about soups, I love soups. Any recipes. I am a senior aged person.

  • Hi Carah thank you so much for the information.
    Just wondering how you store your salads before making them. I’ve read so much about so many different ways.
    Also say if you prep your salad the night before will tomatoes and cucumber make it doggy. So perhaps I should put them in just before eating.
    Also I’ve read some people put Fritos in. Are they different that tortilla chips or Doritos? Thanking you in advance.
    Kindest regards

  • I was listening to your thoughts on Keto. Now I have studied Keto and I do it with intermittent fasting and do also have a cheat day where I do a larger amount of Carbs on that day. Now I try my best to avoid added sugars etc but do do some fruits as well I do 16-18 hours a day fasting and find that I have all the energy under the sun I need The body does not need high sugar and the brain needs Ketones more than Glucose as Ketones are a much cleaner source of energy. Further the Keto diet is not high protein it is moderate Protein high healthy fats and low Net Carbs. I do consume low carb veggies on my keto days but do not exceed 20 grams which is a lot of spinach for example and just avoid starchy veggies. The starchy veggies are for the cheat days.

  • Where do you get the balsamic reduction dressing? That is the best idea ever. Went to kroger and better health and couldnt find it. ❤���� Well what isle is it in then if its at any grocery store? I looked in the salad dressing isle.

  • Do you use the whole lemon on the southwest salad or just half I couldn’t tell.. and the poppy seed dressing they show on the next one is my favorite dressing in the whole world i eat carrots dipped in it all the time

  • I am making this for dinner tonight and for work tomorrow, along with some cilantro lime shrimp lettuce wraps. Thanks for sharing.

  • Salad season!!! (I know, salads year round but in season makes it better). We have made our own salad dressings for years. Thanks for sharing what many of us already do (and providing a few more tricks) and sharing it with the world. Excellent video to remind, inspire and entertain us. Viewers if you haven’t already tried any of these ideas or are just getting into salads this is a great time to start. All these tips take a salad from a side to a meal!!!

  • Hah, guy on the rights going on about eating a slice of pizza or a burger now and sign. WHAT ABOUT THE FUCKING ROIDS he’s PUMPING!!!!
    Fuck me……..why am I alone here?

  • This was EXACTLY the video I was looking for! Thankyou! these are REAL people salads. You saved my week. I’m so tired of the same lettuce-cucumber-tomato salad I eat every single day. God bless you!

  • What a fabulous video Nisha!! So much yumminess going on. I can’t get enough of well balanced salads, especially with all the flavours & textures combined. Thanks for sharing all these creative ideas. Loved the chickpea moment �� xx Julie

  • I just started to eat vegetables after 15 years. I started with a bowl of iceberg lettuce and carrots. Hopefully I can work my way up to this level soon lol.

  • I prep roasted vegetables or tabouli and add that to any kind of salad. If you have nothing prepped you can add a spoonfull of hummus, roasted peppers from a jar or beans to make it more filling.
    I used to eat those light salads and I hated it. It could never replace a meal until I starter adding things I liked.

  • I went to the grocery store and got the ingredients for these salads and some of your other recipes in other videos. I just made the Gorgonzola apple salad and my husband loved it, we can’t wait to try the others. Thank you!

  • I made the Gorgonzola and apple salad for lunch today. It’s awesome �� I used candied pecans and I did all your recommendations including the fini. That stuff is a game changer!!! Thanks for sharing:)

  • This is what I don’t understand, isn’t this not considered low fat? I want to build muscle on a 80/10/10 diet (big booty and a juicy man chest) But, to build muscle you will need more protein which = higher fat. Please help!

  • These look so yummy! I don’t know if I missed it or what, but you changed your wedding ring! Is it yellow gold? It looks pretty! Did something happen to your original one or did you just feel like changing it up? Just curious:)

  • As an aspiring vegan and weight losser (weight loser? is that a word?), I swear this is the most helpful video I’ve ever seen on the internet. Thank you! How long can I store the homemade dressing in the fridge?

  • Please do more cooking videos. I feel like you don’t make complicated recipes and your food is usually quicker to make which is perfect for a lazy cook like me.

  • For your dressing you use Apple Cider Vinegar and is it Olive Oil? If so, what is a good Olive Oil to use. I take a capful of Apple Cider Vinegar in the morning but if I can use it as a salad dressing that would be awesome!

  • I make 3 different healthy salad dressings on the weekend and they last me a month in the fridge (tahini dressing, a miso dressing, and a balsamic vinegarette). I don’t know why, but I feel like the salad dressing is the biggest pain in making salads for me. I also prepare quinoa and cut up veggies. I feel like toasted nuts on a salad is a game changer. Loved this video!!

  • I so agree! Put more thought into making salads. If you would spend $13 dollars for a salad when you are out, why would you not try something close to that at your home. (things I like in salads: bell peppers, orange or red, chick peas, pumpkin or sunflower seeds) I love Sweet Greens but I don’t go too often as they are expensive.

  • In Austria we always put pumpkin seed oil over everything especially salads u should try it too:

    To your organic salad with mixed veggies of choice(tomato, cucumber etc.)
    mix ASV with some olive oil or linseed oil and pumpkin seed oil with little bit of Himalayan salt and black pepper and pour it over the salad
    Ad some seeds like sunflower, chia or sesame seeds too

    It tastes amazing I promise!

  • awesome vid man, more like these. a video on meal prep ideas for a weeks worth of food would be good. (sorry if youve already done one on that)

  • I totally agree. He looks ten years younger! I definitely look ten years younger when I am my skinniest and strongest too. Thank God for intermittent fasting. No more yo yo dieting.

  • I am assuming that the other bottle (you used it in the first salad) is olive oil correct? Great salad ideas I plan to make them all!!!

  • Love your channel! I’ve been loving arugula, very flavorful. This video inspired me to make more salads. Thank you! (Loved the chickpeas part, lol).

  • Sooo interesting. I practiced intermedient fasting for years. As soon as Co vid began, I was thrown out of whack. I panicked. Now, 20 lbs. overweight, I realize, duh go back to the basics again. I always maintained no eating after 7 pm., no refined sugar. Thank you so much for this interview. I was almost going to try Nutri System. Processed food, high sugar content.

  • I love your videos! Thanks for giving us salad options, But 7:29 Fats are the slowest source of energy but the most energy-efficient form of food. No the quickest source of energy like you said.

  • Do you massage your kale before eating it in salads? I prefer my kale in smoothies, steamed or cooked, I just dislike how tough it can be in raw form!

  • This is a colorful and beautiful salad!
    Appetite is inspired by colorful vegetables!
    Yummy. Very healthy:D
    I wanted to see the salad closer if possible.

  • Question about ACV, I’ve read and heard it’s too acidic to eat or drink (in shots alone or mixed in with water) is it really that bad for our teeth or body? I really love using it, but I try to limit my usage, just in case. Really great idea with different cuts of veggies, I do the same. For my salads sometimes I love to use salt-free seasonings (like Mrs. Dash) to give a little flavor either in my dressing or on the salad itself. I also love to put oregano or rosemary too!

  • This might be a silly question, but do you shake that vinegar before you poor it? I can see that’s the type with the mother in the bottom and I’m just wondering if your supposed to eat that?

  • Thanks for the tip about soaking the walnuts! Sounds like they will be easier on my stomach this way! I put pumpkin seeds in my salads & oatmeal. Also, loved the tip about dilllove dill in my chicken soup!

  • you have literally been my inspiration this year because your videos have pushed me to become the best version of myself! thank you for your amazing videos <3

  • This video was just what I needed, 2 respectful & intelligent gentlemen!
    Unsuccessful at Keto, always struggled with drinking water!
    Dr. Berg’s whiteboard gives me a headache & DeLauer makes me anxious….worth the wait!!!

  • I am so upset I paid to take your challenge and I have yet to get the app to participate I have emailed many times and no one ever answers. Is this some kind of scam

  • Omg I love this video! Nobody ever understands when I say “I’m craving a salad”. This is why! They are filled with such delicious and nutritious foods that make me feel energized!������

    Btw. I’m a youtuber too! We should support each other!��✨

  • Only you can look cute catching chickpeas in your mouth lol!!! Love your salad video and will attempt to make all 3 dressings this weekend!! Everything looked delicious!

  • Hi Dr. Mona, like you I have mastered how to bulk out a salad to make it a nutritionally substantial meal, and one of my favorite little tips is I sometimes use a tablespoon of hummus (I vary up the flavor because it keeps it interesting) and I use that as a salad dressing base mixed well with lots of lemon or lime, and a little extra virgin olive oil. It add a ton of flavor and makes it more a creamy tasting dressing (without any dairy to get it to a creamy consistency). For those that include fish in their diet, when I’m in a rush and want a kick of protein I add a package of tuna in water to the top of a salad. It works nicely with pretty much any veggie and/or grain like brown rice and quinoa.

  • Taylor you are just plain adorable and I love your videos! One day I’m going to watch the ones that I haven’t seen because this is only the second one I’ve known about. Have a blessed day ��

  • Ed, you’re a wonderful interviewer! You listen more than speak, and when you do speak, you are sincere, eater to learn, you lift people up. Thank you for your enthusiasm to better yourself.


    Here are my fav salads:

    1. Strawberry spinach salad
    -sliced strawberries
    -sliced toasted almonds

    -1tbsp maple syrup
    -1tbsp olive oil
    I sometimes add blueberries to this one too.

    2. Roasted sweet potato salad
    -roasted cubed sweet potato tossed in olive oil, salt and a bit of cinnamon
    -spinach or lettuce
    -toasted walnuts or pecans
    -pomegranate seeds
    -chopped basil

    You could add crumbles goat cheese to this.

    -dried cranberries
    -diced red onion
    -3 tbsp mayo

  • Hey, I’m a single bloke and I don’t eat too well.
    Can you make a series of vegan food that doesn’t have too many herbs, and has no spare herbs and vegetables left over?
    It just seems wasteful to have a bunch of Dutch cinnamon I’ll never use again.
    If I buy dried fruit and nuts, I eat them until I’m sick.
    Also, I want a system where I buy a bunch of vegetables, and they make dinner for two days, exactly.
    I’m going to make asparagus and bean salad though…
    You are honestly mind-blowing… you know so much!

  • we have a basic side salad with our dinner every night and our basic dressing is just olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper! sooo much better and healthier than store bought honestly idk why people buy salad dressings! all the ones u made in this video looked amazing! my personal fav is a lemony tahini dressing, soooo good

  • This is brilliant information, I want to start fasting today, I just need to know how many hours per days and how many days per week, does it depend on the diet you want to do? I.E. the 5/2 diet,
    Let me know please,
    Great show, great guys!

  • can you make a video on foods high in calorie and protein but don’t fill up a lot? (for the ectomorph people and the permabulkers)

  • Kristina, you are truly an inspiration to me! Thank you so much for your videos, When I’m feeling down or I forget what I want to be in the raw food community because life can take us away, you bring me right back to where I need to stay. I am new to raw food and am ready to do a cleanse for the first time in over 10 years. So ready set go!! After this cleanse I am going to dive into raw foods. I am looking forward to your new 7 day cleanse. I will incorporate it into my diet right after my fast which is 7 days, Just to let everyone know I used to cleanse every 3 months though out my 20;s and 30;s. After a tragic accident and becoming paralyzed for 4months and all of the medications the doctors put me on because of severe pain, I forgot who I was.
    I started watching your videos back in September of 2017. I am ready to make the change because of your inspiration and your commitment. Thank you so much. I love you!

  • WRINTING YOU FROM BOLIVIA!!!!…… u rock man!!!!!! to be SINCEER I DIDNT MADE ONE YET!!!! but they look awesomeeeeeee AND ITS HAS NUTRITION DETAILS!!!!! keep UP!!!!!

  • The idea of an asparagus and green bean salad is life changing for me. Thank you so much! I dislike the leafyness of traditional salads so I’m definitely trying rhis

  • funny sounds like me when urging that this cheaper but real yogurt is a bitch but i do buy salmon in a can sometimes fresh when on sale that is cheap to forgot that

  • Isn’t it frustrating that you have to use stupid ounces for the container and grams for protein? When will the world acknoledge that grams and kilograms are the best weight units and give up the stupid ounces, lbs and other bulshit?

  • I’m often told I make great salad dressings, but now I feel like they are very basic compared to yours �� thanks for the great recipes and tips!

  • I cannot believe I just discovered you! Just received your book all the way in Taiwan and look forward in trying all your recipes. Love your videos! Thank you for all your hard work. <3

  • Can you please make a follow up video to this with more salad recipes? They are kind of hard to find, every salad recipe I find is for the basic stuff like cesar, greek, kale or chopped salads. The gorgonzola salad helped me lose weight!

  • Nice presentation but unfortunate that you use oil in everything. Have you seen Dr. John McDougall and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s videos on why oil is really not a “health food” and is especially harmful for people with cardiovascular disease, diabetics, etc.? Chef AJ is a good resource for how to prepare food without oil…. check out her video on calorie density as well. The whole-foods, plant-based movement rocks but I’d love to see you enhance the no oil movement as well. You’ve got a lot of talent.

  • The chickpea catching shoot was just the best thing I have seen for the past 2 weeks.
    Nisha, you are a legend!
    Anyways, sending you all the love!
    Stay safe and sound!

  • I LOVE adding fennel to salads! It has such a beautiful crunch and aroma! Surely, not everyone likes it but I definitely do:D
    Also, the whole farro salad will be definitely in my menu this weekit seems to be ticking all the boxes and has pretty much only my favourite ingredients:D

  • Love these ideas! I actually make prettty much that same lemon tahini dressing! It’s my favorite!

    I made it in my video actually on Thursday! https://youtu.be/18ovtD-AfBg

  • Hi! Thanks for these interesting ideas on salad. Since It’s difficult to keep a tab of these many ingredients, do you mind sharing the details in the description or maybe a quick ingredient list in the video itself? Thanks.

  • Gosh, I was cracking up over the bloopers. I also love how delicious these salads look! Thanks so much for this salad video. I miss salad, but I also don’t like them to be boring. Honestly, I wouldn’t have ever thought to salt & pepper my greens had it not been for cooking school. One of my chefs said it like this: “I don’t know about you, but my salad greens don’t come seasoned.” I never forgot that lesson, and thought I was the only one that did that. Thanks for this video Nisha; I can’t wait to make salad now!

  • So I made your salad dressing with the OJ (I was making fresh OJ/grapefruit juice anyway that morning) and put it on my salad to which I added blanched asparagus as well as beets with roasted walnuts, and it was SO DELICIOUS! I plan to make all your dressings and salads. Fantastic recipes! I sometimes forget to let you know that I have made your recipes and how much I enjoyed them, so just know that I do make them and am never disappointed!

  • thank you so much for posting this, please keep the recipes coming! My husband and I love your Southwest salad and it was also a big hit at a dinner party! can’t wait to try the other salads:)

  • I made the green bean and asparagus salad with a lemon tahini dressing… FANTASTIC! And I want to know where you get the bowls that you put them in… can you share where you got them or who makes them? I love them!

  • I’m so picky with a lot of vegetables! I need to start trying new things, but I also think I told myself when I was younger that I didn’t like certain things without trying them first

  • Love your channel, dressings are the one thing I struggle with so thanks for sharing. Just bought your book, The Vegan Instant Pot lots of great ideas.��

  • Hi Carah!! I just recently started trying to cut out meat as much as I can and your videos have been super helpful! I just tried the southwest salad and it was bomb! I also tried the pasta salad yesterday which was great too!! Thank you!! Please make more cooking videos!!

  • No one:
    Absolutely no one:
    Not a single soul:
    Nisha: Whips out her party trick of catching chickpeas with her mouth

    I laughed so hard when you caught four in a row and went YAS! Victory is mine!!!

  • Lol you did nail it! (After it hit your teeth) Omg, that was great!! Too funny!…I do agree making your own dressing is very intimidating but you have some yummy ideas like always! I can’t wait to try them!

  • Women should intermittently fast differently because we have to take into consideration our hormones. Look it up. Good interview tho!!

  • Awesome! I’ve been struggling for my own personal balance to I have a plant based diet, and somehow ended up with hashimotos thyroiditis. Maybe it’s cirtain raw vegetables, I don’t know but it seems the complexity is somewhere in the simplicity of chooces, and I like your combinations

  • Girl, I can tell that you understand salad on a spiritual level. Most people have no idea how delicious they can be but you get it. The homemade dressing is definitely the most important part. I love your ideas!

  • You’re great at what you do and I appreciate your investment in our health. I just don’t like you making the food wth your rings on its just so unsanitary. Love your channel tho.

  • Great content! Over the last 5 years, I’ve experimented with many of these principles… and I now look forward to a “salad” 3x/day! Every salad has a different flavor profile and mix of textures and temperatures. Homemade hummus and pesto are two of my favorite “dressings.”

  • Oh my goodness! All of the dressings look delicious! I love your idea of fresh green beans and asparagus. It looks so beautiful and crunchy �� P.S. I’m so glad you didn’t choke on chickpeas!

  • Thanks for sharing.

    One question: When you are finished making the salad can it be put in the fridge for later or is it best to eat immediately?


  • I love your videos so so much, now I MUST make a salad for tonight! I made the 3 bean and veggie chili from your cookbook last night, and I think a salad along side it for leftovers is perfect!

  • This channel and others like it inspired me to start my own YouTube on the Raw Vegan Lifestyle. It’s called “A Salad Everyday”. Check it out and let me know what you think: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3RGOpFvwTn6kLmnYMCKpVg

  • All these fresh greens are making me even more excited to go to the farmer’s market to get some! There are so many fresh herbs available now, I never thought to use them as a base for salads. I’m going to have to try all these this week!

  • Dude I’m sorry, I love some of your videos but this is so far off the mark. At first you will lose weight when you begin intermittent fasting but once your body adjusts to the diet it will begin to hold on to fat. I’ve been on this diet over 3 years and I can tell you I eat a fraction of what I once ate when beginning this diet and despite this I am just as big as when I started.
    Weight loss is best done with frequent heathy meals and exercise.

  • If you drink just before eating you dilute digestive acid making digestion then getting nutrients harder. Also you may deplete yourself from minerals. See Dr, Tent’s Mineral crisis of America.

  • Every single muslim I know fasts, its something muslims have been doing since the start of islam. Interesting seeing non-islamic cultures finally realize the benefits of fasting in recent years….

  • I imagine the salad is so refreshing! Avocado and orange pairs so well together. And the textures must be bursting full of flavor. Well done. I’m inspired to try something like this in one of my recipes. ��

  • Looks amazing❤❤, I am going to try it for shure. I was wondering of its possible to make a sherred vegetables salad ideas. Please thank you so much. Thank God you have a you tube channel love your recipes ��❤❤

  • Holy cow food is so cheap in USA, DISCOUNT foods are 2 to 3 times more expensive in my country and minimum wage is less than 50% of USA’s

  • What about removing the skin from carrots; maybe cooking fresh beans since it only takes 25 minutes in a pressure cooker, maybe more natural less can foods.

  • I’ve just found your page,and it’s AWESOME!!!! My GF said you would could be my wife bc of our similarities related to foods and exercise.

  • Bullshit. This will just make you gassy and bloated and if your lucky you will extract a small amount of vitamins and minerals as your body struggles to ferment this and push all of that fiber out of you.

  • Don’t you have problems digesting soaked chickpeas? I’ve been cooking them even when sprouted. Or does your body learn to digest them raw after a while? It took time for my body to learn to digest them cooked. This is why I can’t go raw, not giving up my sprouted beans every day.

  • Great inspiration! Thank you for encouraging home made dressing. I needed the reassurance. Love that your flavors are in season and you included textures. Yes girl! Can’t wait to make these!!

  • Hi Kristina, I have followed for awhile and remember a video for kids lunch box ideas. Our daughter has a diagnosis that is an autoimmune, with leaky gut. She is 5. We love your recipes. Can you consider doing another one for kids lunch ideas?

  • This is a great interview with Dr. Smith. I also hesitated watching because of the length but enjoyed every minute of it! Probably going to buy the book. Thank you Ed for this interview.

  • Great video, thank you!
    Just not Tuna! It has a lot of protein but it has nothing to do with a big magestic tuna we usually imagine. Why do you think it’s so cheap? They are highly contaminated and very unhealthy.

  • My friends first introduced me into the diet plan “fizy amazing plan”, and i also googled it.  I actually first discovered about it via my friends and I can`t believe how much it has changed my entire life. I have dropped 18 lbs so far and I feel fantastic.

  • Kristina do you know what happened to our good friend John Rose? It has been almost two months since his last video! Please let us know what is going on… Thanks!

  • This looks amazing! ���� Thank you so much for sharing! Keep being a light and inspiration to the world gorgeous girl! Love what you do and who you are ������

  • Do you still drink hot tea while your on this diet? Because I see a tea kettle in the back on your stove?? I’m just curious if you can’t have any warm stuff on a a raw diet ������❤️

  • Your channel is so flavourful, bright & refreshing just like these salads.������
    I can’t wait to shove these combinations in my gob��♥️

  • So I’m confused: the citrus date one is AMAZING (I didn’t make it exactly but just used your version for inspiration like I always do), BUT it didn’t have any vinegar?!?

  • Pinch of salt? Seemed more… Drizzle of dressing? Seemed more… love your jewelry. That is an awesome blender. Bet that cost a pretty penny… hope they gave it to you to demonstrate. Hope you are doing well!

  • we can get protein from greens but certainly not all of it http://www.faqkids.com/519-humans-eat-grass.html Gorillas eat leafs but then again they eat their own crap chewing breaks down cellulose I guess if you blend it it’d be good
