  • why are all the comments so rude on this video? no food is gonna be perfectly healthy, she’s literally giving suggestions on how to have healthIER options for the foods you like. not all of them may apply to you but chill they are alternatives smh.

  • these I actually haven’t seen before, it’s nice how it’s not completely just swapping out snacks into fruit or veggies like in the other videos

  • Parmesan has probiotics, olive oil cleans out your liver, wheat grains (aka noodles) are essential for energy amongst other things. Some of these I wouldn’t necessarily “swap” but maybe also incorporate. Add some zucchini noodles TO your wheat pasta, sprinkle some Parmesan on your cheese. Being afraid of foods like breads, pastas and certain dairy products not only can cause dangerous deficiencies but can actually predispose young adults and teens to eating disorders. All food groups are essential in some way so don’t cut everything out just be wise and experiment:)

  • since i was a kid, i always have eaten baked food instead of fried. Trust me, i tried both and tastes the same, or maybe just for me because i’m used to

  • when she said add lemon to carbonated water for natural sweetnesshoney, i gotta ask, have you ever had lemon? thats got NO sweetness the F??

  • Thank you so much, I find these videos extremely useful. I get really stressed out because I feel like if you are eating healthy, there isn’t much delicious options. This has definitely proved that wrong. I now will be buying these things.��

  • 1:37 or just pull what I do and juice your own fruit and add only gelatin and boom. Fruit gummies. Same thing can be done with veggies and I’ve historically tricked my niece who hates anything green to eat broccoli, zucchini, etc by hiding it in gummies or brownies or just making it more appealing

  • Bruh. Tf she got yams in her fruit bowl in the background lmao. And that butternut squash just vibin there in the background too lol. Great video though!

  • Imma go bake some cookies, but instead of adding the cup of sugar i’ll use a cup of cinnamon! Thank you for the amazing substitution idea!

  • I don’t understand the boiled vs fried egg one. They are the same amount of calories and they are just cooked differently. I don’t use butter when I fry eggs so it doesn’t add any extra stuff to the egg. I think fried eggs are better for me too because they are bigger, and if I eat something with large volume I won’t want to eat more later.

  • Bruh since when everyone started to hate on tasty �� atleast their ideas aren’t stolen or fake okay?? And they didn’t say it was completely healthy just healthier than regular snacks

  • Hi amazing ideas, as always more interesting than any cookbook. I got into watching your channel watching your fab ideas and fab music. Give me this any day, rather than someone talking ‘at,’ you! Keep them coming.

  • I’m addictive to homemade popped corn I love love love popped corn that I’d had to actually give myself a month from it I was just wondering like is it bad for the abdomen like do you get bloted eating it constantly I’m really trying to find a bad reason why I can’t eat it lol I would rather eat air popped for lunch and snack and if there’s really nothing to eat dinner�� I know right too much, help!

  • Thank you for the precious information! I’m trying to loose some weight! Check my health related videos in my channel
