  • Would LOVE those types of videos! For those of us who are just learning what to keep in our kitchens for healthy eating, these are ESSENTIAL videos. Thanks so much. So helpful!!

  • Your freezer organization is spectacular! So inspiring! Avocado tip��: I freeze avocado pieces in the same way you freeze your bananas. Great for when they are on the verge of becoming overripe, but you’re not ready use them for something else. They are amazing in smoothies especially for a dairy free person. They add a creamy richness similar to dairy. Also, I would definitely be interested in a scallop recipe! Thanks for all your fabulous videos!��

  • I freeze milk and cheese and it’s just fine as well as cream cheese however I tried freezing some heavy cream during this quarantine and it was an epic fail

  • Thank you!! The only items from your list missing from my fridge were heavy cream, cream cheese & Swiss chard. Adding these 2 my groceries this wk.

    This is 1st time I’ve seen one pf your videos & I LOVED it!! So I subscribed�� thanks again��

  • Ok… I heard crudité so many times I had stop the video to look up what the heck it means!!! ��

    You & I make very similar snacks & lunches! Love it!
    My kids love love love their fruits n veggies & for the most part, love to try new foods & flavors! I’m lucky yes, but we started them early so it’s easy! Now, cleaning up, different story! ��

    Thanks for the video; I love it

  • Omg, love your breakfast sandwiches! Your breakfast sandwiches were my shot when I was pregnant. I would make them with some homemade gluten-free chapati for a yummy sandwich and freeze them. Yuuuum! This video was great, btw. Love the helpful tips. Can you do more videos focused on easy tips for using specific ingredients like this? Super helpful! Thank you!

    My staples are oat banana blender pancakes with carrots and corn; homemade peanut butter granola; bananas, fresh and frozen, tons of rolled oats for breakfast and gluten-free baking; always have frozen corn and fresh carrots to put into almost anything.

  • Thanks so much fot sharing this! Im a new subscriber and really loving what im seeing. Would love to see a snack and spice draw! ����

  • I have been watching your videos back to back, sorry I forgot to like… I looove them(going back and liking them:-) why I’m I seeing you in 2020… what have I been doing with myself.. thank you so much.. yes freezer and pantry please

  • I do enjoy some of your videos and recipes. I do think your freezer looks wonderfully organized, however you condone torturing and killing living beings to stock your freezer and put them into your body. Shame on you. The livestock contribute to a great % of greenhouse emissions and the poor animals want to live not feed you. Eat plants!!!!

  • Just came across your channel while searching for different ways to use my garden veggies etc. I quickly subscribed. This video as well as your similar freezer one that I watched first are excellent. I LOVED seeing and hearing about how you take the very basics and make so many different things with them. Perfect and just the inspiration I was looking for! I especially loved how you use the crudite in so many ways. BIG thumbs up! Keep these kind of videos coming:)

  • We had our fridge & freezer n kitchen break within a month of purchasing it & we went through heck trying to get the company to fix or replace the refrigerator tho they sent repairmen multiple times to fix over 3-5months n which sucked so while we were waiting for them to figure something out we went & bought a used just a regular fridge & put it in our garage also a tall freezer which we didn’t pay much for them both because they were used! After it all was said & done the company after we threatened to get ahold of attorney general they refunded our money so we went & purchased a new fridge for our kitchen & thankfully the used fridge & freezer still works that’s in our garage so whenever we find meat & other stuff on sale we purchase it & put in our freezer in garage & if we purchase excessive food that won’t fit in fridge in kitchen we store in fridge in garage so we have a lot stored in all our freezers & fridges altho we’ve been eating up stuff we had in freezers & fridges for past couple months so we don’t have to shop so often! Don’t get me wrong we don’t have lots of money to buy lots of food but when I’m shopping & I see stuff on sale knowing I’ll b purchasing it during months to come I go ahead and purchase the food instead of waiting to pay full price! I’m just glad to learn of things I didn’t know could be froze I hate wasting food & there’s times when we don’t eat it fast enough especially produce & fruits & lunch meat I love knowing I can freeze it so I won’t have to waste it from now on! So learning this stuff is a great thing to know about! Thank you for educating us on what you can freeze! Everyone stay safe!

  • Great info! THX��
    BTW I’ve been dicing and freezing different fruits/veggies during pandemic… bananas, onions and celery. They taste great too!

  • Can you post about your weekly meal planning? I just started packing lunch for me and my fiance to try to eat healthier. Thank you! <3

  • Avocados can be kept in the fridge for quite a while, so you can stock up while they ‘e on sale. Buy them firm and as long as you keep them under 45 F they will not continue to ripen. Take out what you plan to eat 2 or 3 days ahead of time to continue ripening at room temperature.

  • If your family or yourself don’t have alot of money. So be it.
    My family when i was growing up
    We have meat & cheese & milk & coffee in the freezer.
    It wont kill u

  • Once again may I say thank you so much for sharing your great idea.so healthy I loved organic fresh fruits and vegetables..I enjoyed watching your channel ��God bless and peace grace to all of us ����������

  • I’m starting out on the clean eating lifestyle and so all of these videos are a great help. A pantry, snack cupboard would also be wonderful. Thank you so much for what you do

  • I have a question, the freezers in your basement do you have them in one plug? do any of them share the same plug? you never have a problem with needing to reset them. Do you keep them a a surge protector or straight into the wall plug

  • As a Type 2 Diabetic, I have to watch my carb intake anyway, so Keto sounds like something I should do. Berries are the best fruit along with MANGOS for diabetics, but are they too sweet on keto? When I did some research into Mangos, I found out they are one of the best fruits for diabetics. Crazy!

  • People are going to believe what they want of course but this information is really fake news.Vegetables are always good for you but thats about the only truth being preached here.Eggs bacon butter etc all increase cholesterol and risk of cardiovascular disease.Fact.Bacon is high in salt which increases blood pressure.Fact.Doesnt mean you cant eat these things but you have to be careful.
    She makes it sound like you can eat 4 eggs a day for the rest of your life..Completely nuts.One egg is 200mg cholesterol which is just right.Most diets are a con job,a way for false prophets to make money out of the unsuspecting by pushing false narratives. If you want to lose weight,eat less.Its that simple.Takes discipline and time.Thats all.
    I dont say that all keto is bad for you,I like some of the principles it espouses,just not the way it greenlights the unlimited consumption of saturated fats.And what about the unsuspecting kids of these keto parents who are brought up to believe this fake news is actually good for them.Very dangerous and unfair.So poached salmon with steamed veg is great.Avoiding intake of carbs followed by sugars is great advice.Have one or the other but not at the same time unless youre not overweight.But anyone who tells you you cant eat bread in moderation or an apple or banana is a nutcase with an agenda.Fake news.

  • Okay you had me until the milk part. I breastfeed and it’s recommended to freeze plus I freeze my 2% milk all the time and it tastes just as good as normal!

  • how about cleaning out those aluminum containers and either reuse or recycle them. much better idea than having them buried in a landfill.

  • MCT oil made me so extremly sick, I almost had to I call an ambulance,the only reason I did’nt, I was too sick to get up to get the phone! It said put one tbl..in your coffee but maybe only one tsp.at first until your tummy gets used to it….Are they kidding it was the worst pain I’ve had besides childbirth, I was finally starting to throw up that helped but then it was nothing but dry heaves and cold sweats I thought I was gonna die, all I could do was pray…..I paid $25 for that stuff, then a few weeks later I got some “slim fast ” KETO shakes I took a few sips and thank God I saw the ” cantains MCT oil ” before I drank anymore,but immediately the horrible cramps started,even with just that small sip it was horrible, not as bad as the first time, after about 20 min. I started to feel better then fell asleep, the first episode was over an hour if vomiting violently, I guess I’m alergic to MCT oil, but company’s need to put the ” contains MCT oil ” in large print please people be careful it was such a painful experience I wouldn’t wish it on my ex.husband!!

  • I love having frozen chicken tenderloins on hand as well as frozen cauliflower rice. I use Aldi for both of these items. I LOVE the convenience of cauliflower rice and I find Aldi to be the most affordable. It’s perfect for a low carb diet.

  • I would love to see a snack video! My kid has many extra curricular activities and I would love easier grab and go snacks.
    I really also want to know how to make scallops! I love scallops, but they’re so expensive I’m afraid of messing them up. Thank you!

  • All these stolen video bits you add for footage are distracting and have nothing to do with what you are saying if were being honest. Now where is that unsubscribe button?

  • Hi Dani I’m new to your channel and love it! So many great ideas! Do you post your weekly dinner meal plans? If not, would love it if you did or even put your meals up on Instagram! ��

  • I’m so happy your still making videos! I started with your spaghetti squash videos (just found you a week ago) and I loved your video but was thrown off by the audio so I figured I should check if you had new videos AND YOU DID! WITH A NEW MIC TOO!!!
    Can’t miss out on that awesome accent because of bad audio lol. Keep making videos, they are great!

  • Love your channel & all the great tips & recipes for healthy eating! I def. wld like to see a video on pantry organization & best spices to keep on hand.

  • When I switched from chips, cookies, bread, beer and bread ice cream to these foods I actually saw my grocery bill go down. I am blessed to live where there are many grocery store options so I shop their prices too. Hoping you have good results and health on the diet you choose.

  • thank you sooooo much dani, thats cool my name is danielle and my friends call me dani im sooooo exited that I got in the healthy channels and im glad that you have a healthy youtube channel I want to eat healthy to lose my belly fat and gain a little weight. Thanks to Lord and you my dream is gonna come true.

  • Damn�� I watched 4 your videos ��and I knew ��I needed to subscribe☺️ how I stumbled across your channel I don’t know ����‍♀️ but you just gained a new subscriber ������Great videos

  • Eggs are not healthy. They cannot be referred to as healthy or nutritious in an advertisement according to law. They cause inflammation as do all other animal products.

  • Spinach is not a great keto food because it’s high in oxalates which cause stones which can be an issue for people that make stones easily.

  • While watching this video my son comes in who is like the most cuddly person ever (hes 1) starts watching with me and then says mwah! And gives the screen a bunch of kisses and hugs my phone. �� thats the first time hes ever done that too any one he doesn’t do that while facetiming or anything so i guess he likes watching you too

  • This is perfect! So helpful to make it easy to eat healthy. Yes Im interested in freezer and pantry! Im so glad I found your channel and your recipes are amazing.

  • Omg I’m so happy I found your video recipes. After I found your salad dressing video..I’m hooked. I’m looking forward to trying a few of your recipes this week ��

  • I like the weekend storage of vegetables. I usually meal prep for the week and the hassle of getting vegetables constantly so it’s near fresh is a hassle. That idea is much easier! Plus it would be nice to have options for meals in between like breakfast options. Thanks for the ideas. I also didn’t even know about the microwave steamer. That’s a huge time saver. I on a daily have to steam my vegetables.:/ I started eating healthier and it’s not tasteless or as bad as I use to say it was. It’s just timely because of prepping it. To anyone out there who wants to eat healthy. I lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks just eating healthy. Granted my metabolism at 27 is somewhat still in its prime because of how active I am but it’s easy! And no gym required. It’s just an added bonus to go to the gym. Dieting is definitely the best way to go.

  • I stumbled across your channel.Your Awesome��Thank you so much again. Perfect menu so yummy n healthy I loved it��God bless and peace grace to all of us ����❤️

  • Hi I’m Terry then I’m a diabetic and I would like some suggestions how to eat healthy as a diabetic I’m only allowed 45 carbs per meal any ideas

  • Thank you for describing the foods you eat on keto. I will NOT be doing this. It’s obviously a summer diet as you don’t eat fruit in winter, autumn or spring. Where do you get calcium from if you don’t have milk? No, this isn’t healthy at all.

  • @jordan page: there is a way o compartmentalize a chest freezer,go to prepper David Armstrong on youtube & he’ll show you,it’s a roughly 5 minute video

  • A good pro tip for chest freezers is putting the food in bags, i used woven shopping bags (bag for life) each bag has its set item/items. Chicken in one, beef in another ect ect. Also good if u have boxed food. I was able to get 8 bags in my old one. Having 2 layers. Then just had a small whiteboard i made a 2×4 grid on then just put in what was in each bag. If i needed chicken it was the 2rd from the left on the bottom all u do it take the bag out thats on top of it. Defo worth doing, i got rid of the basket as it was angled wasting a small amount of space lol.

  • I love how simple your food is yet still seems full of flavor �� and may I ask how old your kids are I appreciate how you pack so many veggies into their diets and they seem to love it

  • Lovely people
    Do you know, there are 2 amazing herbs which can cure Cancer and these herbs were tested in a laboratory in the U.K. and America.
    I have made a video about these herbs. My first video is about how to use these herbs for Cancer.
    Second video is about laboratory test results of one of the herbs and I am going to make another video for laboratory test results of the 2nd herb soon.
    Please watch my video and share as much as you can because it might benefit some one who is suffering from cancer.

  • Hi Dani,i wanted to have your opinion on something,i’d an auto immune desease lately and iam on diet,it’s very hard because idon’t have many options,it’s a dairy free,sugar free,gluten free and meatless and no processed food,you see! almost all what i used to eat,but i can eat a little bit of butter and sometimes eggs that’s all,do have some meals or some ideas may be!I eat a lot of veggies,fruits,i only cook with ev.oo,i make soups,red lentils bread,crudités��i hope that you’ll see my msg.

  • I tried freezing ginger and garlic. Didn’t work. Both became translucent and soft, not very appealing. The garlic was usable, but the ginger was not.
    But, this has started me buying frozen packs of pineapple, blueberries, fruit, for winter, when I’m continually wasting fresh or tinned fruit by not eating it all.

  • Great suggestions! For the most part, I cook for two which is both expensive and wasteful. We never seem to get through a loaf of bread before it goes bad for example and buying in bulk to save money has just not been an option. I will be trying out most of your recommendations.

  • Great video. I sadly admit i’ve store coffee in the freezer before, thinking it might help preserve it. I did notice it not tasting good. Glad to see it wasn’t such a good idea.

  • So do you cook your peas before you freeze them for a snack? I had not in the past, but I was recently told it was not safe to eat them raw directly from the package. Just wondered your thoughts. Loved the video!

  • Dani, I found you on Friday and I just LOVE your YouTube channel!! I would love to see what you keep in your spice cupboards for staples! I have spices that I’ve had a long time….some I use and some just sit here. I maybe bought it for a recipe and then never used it again…any help you can give on this would be wonderful!

  • Far too much freezing in my opinion. I would not freeze a whole soup for a familly of 8. The thawing takes a day in the fridge. I would freeze some ingredients to use in the soup and then add potatoes and fresh veggies when cooking.

  • Thank you for the tips…I started meal prepping for the week. I also prechop my ��. Question: do I have to wash the veggies that come in a bag like broccoli and baby spinach? Thanks

  • Yes on freeer and pantry. Recently found your channel. Simple and delicious recipes. I made the buffalo chicken chili and banana oatmeal cookies this week. Absolutely delish! THANK YOU!

  • You can keep your bread in the fridge without it going dry? What’s your secret? My great always goes dry when I put it the fridge.

  • Is there any other benefit besides weight loss to be on Keto diet? I’ve just started on the diet to lose weight. Noticed a lot of skinny people are on it too, wondering why?

  • Remember always wash fruit and vegetables before storing. Meat on the bottom of your fridge. Dont buy too much food unless you can freeze it before it goes off. Food is precious and you don’t want to waste anything.

  • I love the different ideas. You thought of canning your leaf overs and in season vegetables. I love doing that to have ton ready for quick meals

  • If you want to freeze eggs just beat all the eggs together then use a ice cube to freeze the beat eggs. Then store in w freezer bag till you need them.

  • can freeze:
    -vacuum seal MEAT and chicken
    -fully cooked/shredded MEAT
    -lunch MEAT
    -bread crumbs
    -bread/bagels (wrap in damp paper towel and microwave for 10secs)
    -guacamole/avocado whole
    -shredded/sliced cheese
    -chocolate/baking chocolate
    -chia/flax seeds
    -banana bread/muffins

    -egg roll wrappers
    -cookies/baked goods
    -beans/refried beans
    -seeds/garden items (flash freeze)
    -sauce/soup (mason jars with extra space!)
    -dairy/cream cheese/sour cream/ricotta/cottage cheese/butter
    -veggies cut up
    -cookie dough/batter

    deeper=colder for meat/seafood

  • I am currently on Intermediate Fast and already feeling full and inches are coming off. I take a Protein shake and only eat one meal a day which is at 5 or 6pm and boy do I enjoy it. One thing I have to work on is night snacking. Jus5 have to go to bed without my IPad because sometimes a video o4 pic of food would trigger my legs �� �� to get up and munch, lol. By November 7, 2020 going back to Keto living. I want to eat to live NOT live to eat!!!

  • I love how keto uses almost everything I never eat. Milk, butter, eggs, sugar, and avocado.

    Haha, it’s a slow learning curb, so I won’t be eating bad oils, or buying junk food ready to go.
    Just gotta keep practicing cooking.

  • Why Stop Eating Bacon? Sodium Nitrate causes Cancer preservative used to cure the meat to process Bacon.

    https://www.health24.com/Diet-and-nutrition/Healthy-foods/Can-we-do-without-the-nitrites-in-bacon-20150206. Hope after watching this video you and if you’re eating bacon and giving it to your kids that you are slowly killing yourself and attract the body to have cancer.

  • I tried this with all sincerity and an open mind. My cholesterol went through the roof. This does not work for everyone. Dairy and meat are really not good for the human body.

  • Wow! I hope you have a generator!! If you lights went out for quite awhile, you’d be out a lot of money otherwise!!
    My daughter swears by freezing meat in ice cream buckets—you don’t get freezer burn!!

  • Hey i just found your channel and loved everybit of it. Just watched 6 videos in a row and i fell in love the way you potray food �� cannot wait to try all these yummy recipes ���� lots of love stay gorgeous!xx ❤️����

  • Nice share & video thank you. I like the organized mind! Puts us on the daily playing field to stay on track. A few finds I keep on hand (as you requested @ video end) via my yr experience on keto I love:

    Navitas cocoa powder & nibs, Garden of Life Golden Flaxmeal (0 carbs) for homemade tortillas/crackers/bread, coffee flour by Earthly Choice & their Superseed Trilogy (these are great for adding some protein & antioxidants/flavor w/out carbs), beet horseradish, organic green olives, zero carb pickles, Eden Foods sauerkraut, good fats bars, organic celery sticks, Nick’s Turkey Sticks, Lindt 95% dark chocolate (melt 2 squares w/1 t. butter, add 2 drops stevia + water & enjoy with 4 sliced medium strawberries and/or 1/4 c walnuts!), MacFarms dry roasted Macadamia Nuts, Future Foods Gelatin & Marine Collagen, canned okra (0 carbs) & Paisley Farms brussel sprouts (0 carbs) canned, also Lupini Beans (in brine or as a snack in a bag! I found 0 carb & 10g protein per serving!), spanish red skinned peanuts (great magnesium etc.), canned tuna, peanut flour, xtreme wellness spinach tortillas, edamame hummus (I used 1-2T w/h20 & EVOO for a great salad dressing!), parmcrisps, Eden Organic Canned Black Soy Beans, Zeroodle Mung Bean Spaghetti, Miracle Noodle Angel Hair Shirataki Noodles, Greek Yogurt by ‘Two Good’, Seaweed snacks, Seaweed Thins Toasted Coconut by Gimme (OMG soo good)


  • When I was a little boy and we got milk delivered in the winter it would freeze and push the little foil cap off the bottle and we still drank it.

  • With all that ecoense to feeeze, you are not saving.

    Throwing away food is not bad since they are biodegradable. PLASTIC and ALUMINUM foil OTOH are..BAD..

  • in order to have FOUR FREEZERS around the house you better equip yourself with a good power generator because if you don ´t…..you will be kicking yourself in the rear once the power goes off. It happened before and it will happen again.

  • I really loved this! Hadn’t considered frozen avocado before �� I’ve just popped some on my next order. I feel inspired. Thank you! Can’t wait for your pantry video������

  • So, by Mashed logic, Frozen Pizza shouldn’t exist! (More for me, I guess.)

    I never freeze any of these except one — I freeze hard cheeses, the ones I use for pasta. It’s also easier to grate when frozen!

  • How does this lady get the energy to all this, both my pregnancies I was tired like hell to even get my ass out of bed. She is not a human lol kidding she is awesome

  • Nasty bananas can be put the blender and mixed with raw oatmeal. Over nights oats! It’s so good!
    Edit you can also puree the peels and use them as mulch

  • one of the best videos I’ve seen on eating healthy and keeping it practical! So colorful, so many tips, so many food ideasand no fluff and waiting around for someone to get to the point! All valuable info and beautiful meals! Thank you!

  • I just froze 40 pounds of potatoes. some I sliced up and fried with seasonings on the griddle to 90% done roughly then stopped. VAC packed and frozen. for mashed potatoes I diced them and boiled them again till almost done. then cold water bath to stop the cooking process. pat dry vac bag and freeze. its not 100% the same when you thaw finish cooking and beat into mashed potatoes but its very hard to tell the difference unless your paying attention. basically you need a wee bit more butter and milk when you mash them.

  • Woooooowwwww… that’s probably the equivalent of what my husband and I grocery shop in a year for our household of 2 �� but it’s all excellent ideas. Hopefully we can apply them one day when our family grows

  • We have a chest freezer and the problem is we keep buying more meat even though I keep advocating to use the meats all the way at the bottom before buying more. You can also freeze orange juice. We buy orange juice at Costco and it comes in 3 packs. We freeze two and leave one in the refrigerator. When that one is almost empty we move a frozen one to the refrigerator to thaw over the next few days.

  • Do videos with the Foodsaver. I need help knowing what’s ok to vacuum seal, how long to store, and how it turns out thawed back out. Teach me please!!!!! I agree buying in bulk saves but it expiring or getting mold is my money going right in garbage. I have foodsaver with the to seal jars if i ordered accessories.

  • Great job.. I’m asking people. To tell me what to put in a pantry Ana the refrigerator.
    Fruits and vegetables I mean.
    Can you help me..

  • Yes, please to the scallops, pantry, and snack drawer video! Oh, how I miss my American fridge/freezer—the common UK ones are so much smaller. Oh, well. ��

  • Mayonnaise, ketchup, cheese, cream cheese and ricotta due to being dairy, milk, coffee, fried food, eggs can be frozen but has to be cracked and separated from yolk and whites, soup, gelatin, potatoes, cornstarch… that’s most of the list

  • This is very wasteful! dont think you sould be promoting single use plastics with your large youtube audience. I think you should look into more sustainable ways of doing this!!!!! I

  • This is one of your best videos. I love the practice of having pantry staples and how you showed recipe ideas for them. Let’s see your pantry!

  • I am a single person household, who does not eat a lot, so I freeze a lot. I have been looking for alternatives and eco-friendly freezer dishes that do not cost a fortune. I can’t use glass dishes because they become too heavy to lift and I am afraid of dropping them. I don’t want to use aluminum foil pans either. I have been trying to come up with something that can go from freezer to oven, but at the moment I use like the rubbermaid type plastic containers and just reheat in the microwave.

    I have also found it challenging to keep fresh produce from going bad. I get 3-bananas and they still go bad. I basically need a freezing produce for dummies. Or I get a salad kit or taco toppings and I can never eat it fast enough. Do you have to cook the produce first and then freeze? I froze carrots and they came out rubbery. The other problem is that my appetite goes in waves where some weeks I eat a ton and then others barely anything making it more challenging to meal plan and grocery shop.

  • Yes Dani please because knowing from my own experience we try new things, we continue to research and learn new things all the time, so updates are wonderful.

  • Yes please on other staples. Just found your channel, some great ideas in this video that I haven’t heard anywhere else. I’ll definitely be making the broccoli cauliflower quesadilla soon. Thanks

  • Thanks very much Dani, I particularly liked the raisin bread and turkey sandwich because those are the flavours that I love, the sweet and savoury.mmmm! ❤️

  • Just stumbled across your page as I searched for ways to implement clean eating habits. So many recipes, so much information…I know what I’ll be doing all weekend. Love this and thank you!!!

  • Prepped veggies are crucial whether you’re on a keto diet or not. Whenever you have some time, chop, slice, bag & freeze. You can always buy frozen prepped veg but as I’m particular how certain veg are cut for flavour and use, I do them myself.

  • I Have lost & kept off 4 kg’s since 18th April 2020. almost 9 lbs ( UK weights ).
    I could have done 50% more if i had tried Hard to stick to Healthy foods.
    With Correct Exercise i Could have Lost Double that amount Easily.
    I am being Sensible on a SUSTAINABLE Weight Loss Diet.
    & Very Healthy Diet.

    So If i Continue for 5 more months i will expect to have lost 8 kg, ( 17 lbs UK )

    If I do 25 mins per day Exercise / walking, Swimming etc? i would Expect to Lose the next 4 kg in about 2 months. EASILY.

    ALREADY I Can Feel My Body to be EXTREMELY Better & more Healthy.
    More ENERGY! & Happier State of mind in general.

    I Was at one point 87 kgs, Then when i Started to Weigh Regularly & write my weight in a book, I now have a Weekly / twice weekly record of my weight since 18th April 2020 at 84.2 kg.
    Now 79.8 / 80.2 ( weight varies Slightly )
    My Target is about 75 kg, ( 72 76 kg approx. )
    At that point i will Assess the Situation & maybe aim for 70 kg very Slowly?
    I Eat Lots of salads & Fresh veg with every meal & ZERO JUNK FOOD!! &very little Bread, Flour, Wheat Products.
    Lots of Veg & fruit in my Juicer Machine maybe twice a week??
    OK once a week?? (LAZY )
    I have Replaced Beer / Lager with Wine or Cider for a drink.

    IF?… If I removed Alcohol? ( No Chance! )
    I would be at 75 kg now.
    Brandy is better than Whisky,
    Brandy is from the vine, & Whiskey is from the Seed, Wheat, Grass, = Whisky adds Weight Faster than Brandy.
    Red wine is better than White wine,
    Any Drink is Good for Mental Health & Relaxation in SENSIBLE QUANTITIES. OCCASIONALLY.

    When at a Beach / Garden party, or after a hard day at work in the garden to Chill out & relax.

    Cut OUT Flour based items. Bread, Pastry, Baked foods.

    Meals =Eat Salads,
    There are at least 20+ different salad items to add to your plate. Mix & Vary them.
    Salad does not end with Lettuce & Tomato!!
    Cress, Cucumber, Raddish, Beetroot, Grated carrot, Apple, Grapes, Green Leaf salad, onions, Etc etc.
    The Fiber will ABSORB the SUGAR & Slow down the Sugar burst from the Fruit.
    The Sugars in the Fruit will Fire up the Body to Digest the Meat / Fish, Protein etc Faster, Hence Natural VALID use of the Sugars in Fruit.

    To SWEETEN Coffee / Sour Fruits, Use HONEY. ( Honey is WAY Better than a spoon of Sugar. Also Honey has many Health advantages & Benefits. )
    Diet plans don’t like Honey because it is so Sweet.
    But everyone will CHEAT & Use Sugar in their Tea / Coffee, on Sour Fruits etc.
    SWAP Sugar for Honey as a sweetener.
    HONEY = BENDING the RULES ( Slightly )
    Look up HONEY for Medicinal & Health Benefits & all the Special& powerful Properties of Honey.
    NOT JUNK FOOD, Very Excellent Natural Health food / Medication, to a certain degree.
    Do your OWN Research. & check with your doctor etc.

  • Ive always froze my milk and like frozen yogurt. Growing up with 4 other siblings my mom always had to buy a lot of milk and freeze whatever jug we didn’t use. All you have to do is shake the milk up once its fully thawed and boom. Good milk lol. It’s just as good. Especially in these times who really going to the grocery store once a week.. just buy the that extra jug of milk and freeze it. Save yourself an extra trip to the store lol

  • I got tested of herpes early this year, I experienced dark urine and ribs pain so I went to the hospital for treatment and I was diagnosed of Herpes. The doctor gave me anti-retroviral drugs to slowdown the viral load which later worsens the ailment because the drugs weren’t effective and I was so scared because they say it has no cure, out of frustration I told my friend about it and luckily he told me he ones battled same problem in the past but he was saved by Dr. Abumere. He gave me his contact and reached him and I became well and tested negative after the treatment. Here is his contact if you have such case. contact: +2349021975055, ([email protected])

  • Would absolutely love to see a pantry, spice, etc… video. Love all your suggestions. Silly question… what are scallops & how do you fix them?

  • Adapting to a ketogenic lifestyle can take some re-working of your habits and a new perspective on how you approach meals and snacks. But, no matter how you were eating before, most of the foods that are the pillars of a keto diet are things you’re already familiar with — we’re just helping you learn to use them in slightly different ways to promote ketosis in your body. Though there are hundreds of foods that fit into a keto diet, there are some that are the true rock stars of the bunch.

  • This was very interesting and useful but please could you kill off the irritating music. So many YouTubers add annoying music that distracts or smothers the spoken word.

  • My goal is to have my refrigerator look like yours! If you like the Dr. Praeger veggie burgers I think you’d like Hilary’s veggie burgers. They have great ingredients and are Bobby approved. I know you follow Bobby Parrish also.:) Your recipes are always good, easy, and quick. I love it!

  • I got my salad spinner back out when my friend ended up in hospital after eating a ready to eat supermarket salad it had so much bacteria she ended up in hospital for 2 weeks. Leaves/lettuce & Broccoli can carry a phenomenally high level of bacteria. Especially if you have small children it won’t be to much of a bother to rinse/spin your vedge or salad. Be safe. You cant always trust what the food says on the label.. Ready to eat, no thanks.

  • I would be very interested seeing your pantry and freezer staples. I would also like to see more videos like this with tips and simple meals! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and wisdom with us!

  • I can’t believe this is really true I never believe there is cure to this hsv 2 because all the hospital have told me there is no cure to it, few months ago I saw this man email DR.EIGBIREMLEN on internet from a testimony share by someone who he help with his herbal cure I contact his email and ask for his help also, that is how he inform me about the cure process and this man sent me a herbal medicine which I took according to the way he instructed for 2 week I can’t believe when I go for test my result come out negative i am so happy to share this to the world there is real cure to herpes you can also contact DR.EIGBIREMLEN through his email now [email protected] yahoo.com and also WhatsApp him +2348157423402 or email: [email protected] yahoo.com… He also have herbs medicine to cured the following diseases;Diabetes, Lupus, HPV, Gout, Hepatitis A,B, Infertility, HIV/AIDS, CANCER, WART…

  • I am baaack! Last night I removed an avocado from the freezer to eat and curb my appetite.Well, it had a different taste and was much softer,it was not a good experience. Obviously I will not do it again! So disappointed.

  • You can buy everything shown at ALDI a lot cheaper than eating fast food. I spent $75 at ALDI today and bought everything on this list plus a lot more. This should easily last me the next ten days. That’s $7.50 a day. I’m a healthy weight, do hot yoga five times a week (plus teach it), but I’m still testing and showing signs of prediabetes GRR!! I’m starting this keto diet because I saw what happened to my father when he ignored his prediabetes and went full blown Type 2, i.e. dialysis aint pretty, and is something I want to avoid at all cost.

  • Lots of GREAT STUFF! HUGE keto/OMAD/EODOMAD/Prolonged fasting fam always looking for great recipes!

    The Tait Almond Sauce has Sunflower oil. No bueno.

    But thanks!

  • I make banana oatmeal cookies. It’s came out very good ; parents and friends are love that cookie. Thank you very much for your receipt

  • This is probably a weird request but I’d love to find out what containers, freezer bags, etc that you use for meal prepping and freezing food. Kind of like a back to extreme basics video for beginners.

  • For religious reasons I don’t consume pork products. I use beef bacon, it’s delicious and can be used just like pork bacon. The beef bacon renders out tallow and its great for frying things like eggs, turnips, radishes, and potatoes for the rest of the family.

  • I disagree with putting different types of veges in the one container. They get taste transfer. Nothing is worse than anything tainted with capsicum. Yuk…

  • Eat Every Fruit & Veg You can Buy Locally in season. Use Fruit & Veg in 100’s of ways.
    I make Dark Fruit Cider, ( I buy the cider), Then I pick Fresh Blackberries & Raspberries from my Garden, I wash them & boil them Gently, Drain the Juice into a jug, Then add it to my Glass of Cider or into my 2 litre Cider bottle. Add Ice & it’s Great.
    Normal Cider is Cheap to buy in the UK,
    Dark Fruits Cider is More expensive.
    Obviously you can add Any Natural Fruit juice from your Locality / Seasonal Fruits.
    When my Victoria Plumbs are ready i Will Juice them & Try Various Ways to Eat / Drink them.
    My Plumb trees produce 100 to 200 pounds of Large Juicy Victoria plumbs Each yr.
    All Grown Wild & organic. ZERO Attention except Pruning the Trees as they overhang my Driveway & the road. They have been Here over 30 + yrs. Plumbs are always very expensive to buy in the shops.
    In the UK Blackberries Grow Freely & wild. Yet Shops charge about 5p to 10p per berry!!
    A pack of about 20? Berries is about £1.50? ( US $1.80. )
    This Last 2 weeks I have had about 8 10 oz of fruit every alternate day as they ripen.
    I expect another 2 to 3 weeks of similar Pickings.
    About £3-4. per day. ( $4-5.00 US )
    100% Organic & natural & Wild. = Zero Gardening attention or knowledge.

  • All a bit worrying really, everyone seems to be losing weight, I wouldn’t want to be doing that, would like to lose some fat though.

  • Mayo
    Milk, yogurt,cream cheese
    Coffee beans
    Fried Food
    Anything Cornstarch
    Defrosted meat

  • I am proud to say that my fridge is like yours! I always gave eggs and avocados especially. One thing I fear is bacon. I love it but worry about nitrites.

  • .Eliminate things that could potentially hurt you; and so, I avoid gluten, dairy, corn, soy, artificial colors and sweeteners because I just have _evidence_ and there’s research evidence that they can hurt you.” rupertdebbie

  • Great tips! I’m a new subscriber and I love all your ideas. I’ve tried your overnight oats and muffins w great success ����thank you������❤️❤️

  • I have a little problem with avocados..they are really not a “must” at all. Watch Dr Nadir Mir Ali’s presentation on phytosterols. Animal fat plz.! I do not eat berries and veggies. fiber takes up the room from the nutritious food. Meat, fat, butter, eggs fish broth. No “fillers”!

  • “If they freeze it in the store you can freeze it at home e”Girl yes ������ �� $aving Money I just subscribed because a. You’re hilarious
    B. This is just what I was looking for

    Thank u!

  • We have two of the chest freezers and omg do I have to pull EVERYTHING out at once to get to the bottom! My husband says…Well there’s a light when you open it and that should help! �� He needs to start diving down in there!

  • I suppose like most people I do like my mother used to do, and she never froze any of this stuff so I don’t either except for milk. I do freeze milk.

  • Wait… what? You kept Easter chocolate in your freezer for 6 months? It’s unlikely it would last for 6 days at my house… and I live alone! Lots of great ideas for things you can freeze. I freeze guacamole but had no idea you could freeze a whole avocado. But I don’t think I’ll ever have to freeze chocolate to keep it from going bad!

  • Love your videos. You are so smart and money savvy. But curious, why don’t you move all the food from that little chest freezer to the nearly empty one so you can see what you have and get rid of it?:)

  • I saved my bacon grease and used it in collard greens it didn’t have a affect eating it but using the grease to cook with is a different story when you have high blood pressure. I can’t do it

  • I am with you on the sprouted bread; I used to just eat bread and butter as a meal so often, but once I switched over, I only use it for actual meals like sandwiches or avocado toast!

  • Will def try sprouted bread
    I also like sourdough but find it very hard and worried about my teeth ����
    Ps thought nut butters should be kept in cupboard as they go hard in fridge.!! ����

  • Here’s one about re-freezing meat. Suppose i portion out too many hamburger patties, can I cook them off, then toss them in the freezer

  • Thank you for the ideas Dani, going to check our your Neapolitan nice cream recipe and the maple salmon. I also have a stock pile of homemade chilli and curry sauce for when we need a quick meal. Love that I see what goes into it, much tastier than the store bought processed alternatives.��x

  • Such a wonderful, informative video!
    Thank you for going through your freezer today, and sharing your great choices, as well as, giving us such great ideas on how to use everything. We appreciate you!

  • I’ve put milk in the freezer before and as long as you let it thaw completely it tastes the same afterwards. Although I would only recommend freezing whole milk because it has a higher fat content so it does better.

  • Seems to be maybe a generalising sweep of information here. This is what I’ve experienced from freezing certain foods first hand…
    *Im not sure about full fat, but semi skimmed milk is fine to use after freezing. My mom did it all through my childhood. Maybe it’s a little more watery, but it’s not so bad that freezing shouldn’t be an option.
    *Mashed potato can be frozen. I wasn’t so sure, but tried freezing left overs after reading that it could be done. I used the frozen mash for a shepherds pie and the mash tasted great. There was no stale flavour that mash left in the fridge gets, the texture was ultra smooth.
    *I’ve not frozen chicken eggs, but have been doing a lot of research….because of the global situation and trying to minimise shopping trips…..apparently eggs frozen (without their shells because of expansion) are fine.

  • Some cheese needs to be frozen so that fungi does not grow on it. One thing in mind is a Parmesan cheese block (not powdered parmesan)

  • National Coffee ASsociation says it’s OK to freeze coffee beans if the container is really airtight.

  • Dani we are really Glad meeting u by chance, b’cos watching ur videos gave us more ideas of leaving healthy, but u know what god will bless u. U are gud friend and sister and we love more��

  • I’m vegan. That’s a lot of tortured dead animals in those freezers. But this lady has a great personality and I learned that i can freeze my plant milk yogurt and nuts and seeds. A few tips from my plant based freezer: Avocados that have been frozen are yucky. Don’t recommend it. Also, bananas should be peeled before freezing. If you ever have a bag of lettuce mix that you know you won’t finish, just roll down the plastic bag it’s in and squeeze out the air and put a chip clip on it. Toss it in the freezer to use for your smoothies.

  • Thank you for this video. I’m a new subscriber. Tomorrow is Saturday and I’m going to prep the veggies you talked about. So many of the things you talked about see very doable. Yes please do a video about your pantry and freezer.

  • I love the way she talks so fast and she SAYS and SHOWS so much. She hyst explain everything so nicely without procrastinating like other youtubers do

  • Add most cheap supermarket breads! The moister and whiter it is, the worst the bread will freeze and come out tasting off with a weird texture. Quality whole grain bread seems to do okay, but stuff like Wonderbread should be right out.
