  • VERY funny when someone acts like they know what they are talking about but actually have no idea then post it on youtube.
    love these satirical videos. keep it up. very funny.

  • Omg!!! You just saved my life!!! I have crohns disease and I need to know what I can eat. God has definitely sent you for all of us. Thank you soooo!!! Much

  • Do you have a video on soy and why it’s not great for you? It is from a soybean, no? Out of all your videos I’ve watched so far I haven’t heard the reasons behind you not recommending soy and I’m interested and want to learn more. Thank you for your time spent educating us! I am on the way to eating more clean and really paying attention to ingredient decks and macros on products and it’s so sad what our food has evolved to during the past decades from using all the preservatives, pesticides, no-nutrition beneficial junky filler ingredients thanks to corn and the way products are processed overall. ��

  • I always have to smell my meat lol before I do anything to it lol hmm �� I’m referring to cooking and I am just considering going vegetarian! I don’t eat eat red meat anymore so if it’s funky or smells bad lol it’s not good!! ����

  • Omg!!! You just saved my life!!! I have crohns disease and I need to know what I can eat. God has definitely sent you for all of us. Thank you soooo!!! Much

  • on occasion, I get beef bologna, turkey sausage patties, and turkey bacon. Grits goes great with the latter. There will never been box mac and cheese in my house. i fix my mac and cheese and layered like mozzarella.
    I do not eat ham or any pork.

  • This is very misleading, because to sell stuff as ‘cured meat’ in the States, you need Nitrite in it. So called ‘natural’ products have tons of celery powder in it because they contain Nitrate in it just like cures.(Nitrate in time becomes Nitrite) Also yes, tons of veggies we eat today are laced with Nitrates. So to be scared of deli meat, you have to be scared of veggies we harvest using fertilizers. Oh also some veggies naturally have a high Nitrate content. Hence using celery powder.

  • I clicked on this because just the other day I was wondering about deli meat. I love turkey breast but it’s a known fact breasts aren’t as big as the deli version which makes me wonder how do they do it. Also why does deli meat stay fresh for so long?

  • The stats re: deli meats and heart disease, diabetes and cancer may be corollary rather than causal. Perhaps people who can only afford to get their protein from deli meats can’t afford good health care. Perhaps people who can afford good health care can also afford better forms of protein. Are there any stats on the groups in the study? Anyway, all parts of the animal are basically wholesome, especially depending on how they are prepared.

  • i dont buy any type of lunch meat… perfer to make my own with real turkey or chicken breast…whole hams, smoked brisket or just about any pig cut…. as far as organic goes…yall should avoid anything with that label on it with a passion… use to drive truck and pick up that stuff…. know the truth…

  • This is my comment on the dairy and non dairy creamers. I am very NEW and unschooled in the natural good food arena. This site is SO perfect for me because of the upbeat and fun duo making the video. Did not know a stitch about Nut Pods. Will def.try. So many new names of the best foods as well as the names of the better companies out there!! You had me at coconut…..that will be on my list!! Just wondering what the diff. products taste. My taste buds are hard to deal with sometimes
    Well, this is my first comment EVER…and first attempt at a Instapot giveaway. Before I go, I want to thank you for your energy and great fund of knowledge. Thanks. Lorraine Person

  • Bought Applegate oven roasted turkey breast today instead of the usual deli sliced! Would not have done so before seeing this video!��

  • Screw this video. As soon as society collapses, this guy is going to grab everything he could and run for the hill. Nobody has time for nutritional value bullshit when the world is falling apart.

  • on occasion, I get beef bologna, turkey sausage patties, and turkey bacon. Grits goes great with the latter. There will never been box mac and cheese in my house. i fix my mac and cheese and layered like mozzarella.

  • They are trying to shock you with infected meat when we just had a romaine lettuce scare XD I agree with not having a ton of additives in the meat but stop trying to scare tactic people into your way of thinking

  • WARNING: Processed meats are classified as a “CLASS 1 CARCINOGEN” meaning cancer promoting per Dr. Michael Greger as reported on his free NUTRITIONFACTS.ORG website. CHECK IT OUT FORE YOURSELF.

  • I just made a new video and I was wondering if guys could just check it out I’m 13 and I just trying to make some money because we’re not doing good financially and I want to give it to my mother so if you could just check the video out because I honestly mean a lot.

  • Mexicans eat tacos de tripas. Look it up! It’s delicious! Anything in excess is bad for you. Even water! �� bad for your kidneys. Just get your meats at a clean and well taken care of deli.

  • So me and my friend had a chlange who ever could eat the most deli meet as we we’re watching this vid won 50$… I ate 2 packs and won��

  • What is the Sodium Phosphate in most deli meat and why is it so bad for you? I’m guessing it’s a sodium mixture used as a preservative.

  • All cold meat is not advised whilst pregnant. Especially if its been sat in a deli counter. Buy from a butcher, he can tell you EXACTLY how old it is and give you way better advice than some spotty kid on a deli counter that started his/her shift 10 mins ago. Supporting your local butcher too.

  • First of all if the deli meat does not look like a piece of chicken, pork chop, or steak than you know it not the real thing. I did not grow up eating deli meat, I’m not missing out. If the deli meat has to be preserved to last a while, you know something weird has to be in it.

  • I know someone who used to work in a meat processing factory.
    Just a few days after said person started working there I saw her and have noticed how she no longer eats meat. According to her the way meat is processed is extremely nasty and made her really sick to her stomach anytime she went to work and anytime she’d see meat in grocery stores.
    I really am gonna follow her footsteps, meat is nasty for real.

  • I was probably going to go to Starbucks and get the egg protein box, but now I am probably going to go to Jimmy John’s because my key takeaway from this was, “I really love salami,” and mostly stopped thinking about anything else

  • You are teaching me so much. Even my husband is listening, well sometimes. But that’s a beginning ��. Thank you for your passion and your teachers heart.

  • Look all processed meats are class 1A carcinogens whether they have added ingredients or not.

  • Let’s make this easy. LUNCH MEAT: What to buy? NONE OF IT. What to avoid? ALL OF IT. I can’t believe the FDA allows this crap to even be on the shelves of our markets. Then again, I can’t believe it lets 90% of the alleged edibles available in our grocery stores be sold. But let’s face it: if those “foods” were banned, the pharmaceutical companies wouldn’t make nearly the profits they make: cancer drugs, cholesterol drugs, blood pressure, diabetes… they’d all be gone.
