  • Begining my vegan journey! Your recipes look so tasty, and easy! Thanks for making me feel a little more comfortable with my new decision of ditching all animal products:D. I’m clearly going to continue watching your awesome videos:)

  • Hellooo, I loved the songs used in this video. I would really appreciate if you could list the songs for me (and those secretly wondering). Thanks and much love!!!

  • If i dont have a vegetable stock cube can I use the vegetable water
    Also if I dont have pak Choi or bok choi can I use anything else cus the big heb that has that is far away

  • I adore the looks of that chilli! Definitely going to try this at home! Thank you so much for the inspiration, You’ve made my vegan journey so much easier!

  • I’m gonna make that chilli dish later today but use quinoa instead. Otherwise I might make the spaghetti dish but use barley instead, I’ve a lot of carbohydrate foods in my cupboard that need using up! D

  • I am new to your channel and I subscribed! Hey put a wet paper towel, washcloth or non-slip shelf liner under your cutting board! It will keep it from slipping with less likelihood of cutting yourself. Save your fingers! Lol have a great day.

  • thank so much for this video…i have made the sweet Thai soup a few times and just now I tried making the stir fry noodles…they are sooooo tasty!!! thanks again

  • I love the idea of these meals, but only the last had enough protein:( others I’d have to add something to these. They all look really tasty tho!!!

  • Only recently found your videos and absolutely love your meal ideas! I cook the same way as you do, just bung it all in and keep stirring it till it’s done ��

  • they all look so good. I am not a fan of soup either but may try it sometime. My daughter and her family are also vegatarian. We plan to get together to cook sometime so I am thinking we will try 4 out of 5 of these, not so much the soup. I can’t wait. Looking yummy. I love your recipes because they are easy and not expensive and tasty. Thank you

  • very nice easy recipes. I am Italian and the risotto you did is as I would do it:) cooking doesn’t need to be complicated. the easy things are the best. Thanks for the video!!

  • I have been advised not to eat tomatoes oats peppers bread. Do make sure you soak dried beans well and also soak your lentils and rinse well. They say no need to soak but please do.

  • I use my pot all the time but now I wanna make all of these recipes! Great video, I needed some inspiration and really liked your video style too. One question, how do you not damage your cabinets releasing the pressure right there? I’ve bleached a few of mine a bit by accident, luckily they’re old, lol

  • Apparently onions and garlic are major foods to avoid if you have IBS as they cause stomach upset. I know, I was very sad to hear as well �� but definitely noticed that it was true after reading

  • I am not vegan yet, because my parents don’t want it. BUT I am searching for something easy to cook so I can cook at home and they can’t say anything so thank you very much ����

  • I prepped these today and I can’t wait to try them! At the end of the video you said that you need to add stock to 3 of the meals, but the recipes only show that 2 call for stock (the lentil dish and the peanut stew). Do you need to add stock to the chili too?

  • I made the tortilla soup. It was so delicious! I used Rotel instead of diced tomatoes, so I omitted the green chilies and chili powder. I added juice of two limes. Sooo good!!

  • Wow Sarah just wow, these are so colorful and mouthwatering, I have added this to my favorites list and can’t wait to try them, Well done and thanks for sharing, much appreciated!!!.xo

  • Just got my cooker and the first thing I cooked was a little 4lb chicken and it turned out wonderful! I love videos like this for inspiration to use it more!

  • Hi first time on your channel today and i cooked all five recipes this afternoon. I really liked your meal prep. All recipes are similar in ingredients which made it easy. I was looking for a bunch of diners i could freeze to gain some time. I don’t like the taste crockpot give so I slow cooked every thing on stove top except the fajitas. And i freezed it once it was cooked. Seems it worked fine. Also i didn’t have any sweet potatoes on hand so i switched them for squash. seem to work fine also.

  • Thank you for the food inspiration! I made the risotto with a few extra ingredients like white wine and Violife white block cheese, it was soooo tasty!

  • I made the sweet potato and carrot thai soup yesterday and it was so GOOD!!!! I added extra spices and added some greens at the end before serving. thank you for the suggestion!! I’m going to make the mushroom risotto sometime this week:)

  • I can’t wait to try these! They’ll look delicious! I’ve never thought to do spaghetti without chopped tomatoes so that’ll be good!

  • Awesome video! My kids don’t like sweet potatoes, would the process be the same with other veggies, potatoes, green beans etc? Also could I use veggies instead of tofu in the tikka masala?

  • oh, this is great! I am going for surgery in a couple of weeks and wanted to get some healthy ideas for meals i can prep so that i don’t need to cook when i get back from the hospital

  • Your hair is looking really cute! These are great ideas, and I like the two vegetarian options too! I’d like to eat more plant based meals, but my husband is always like “where’s the meat?” I just have to find something that tastes good, and I these will.

  • I have already visited your channel and i find it very usefull.
    Very nice recipes. Congratulations.
    I’d be grateful if you take a look at my channel.
    Have a nice day ��

  • Help! When I try to print the recipe, it goes to a second full page but with no option to print. BTW..the Morrocan chickpea dish is awesome. Thank you.

  • If you put a damp paper towel under your chopping mat it will keep it from slipping. Afterward you can use that towel for cleaning up. No waste.

  • Denise, will you follow up and let us know how the IKEA containers worked out? I’ve been tempted to buy them, but I’d like to hear your thoughts. All of your content is AWESOME and I’m always excited to see e-mail from you! Thank you so much!

  • I’m not vegan, but these recipes are quite budget friendly and seem excellent so thank you for that! I love how you use a lot of ingredients that aren’t ”exotic”, cause these are much cheaper and easier to get a hold of.

  • I made the grilled chicken tonight and it turned out deliciously! I was thrilled to see my entire fam gobble it down! I used chicken thighs instead and added some chopped garlic. Thank you so much! New sub and look forward to watching more videos! God bless! Ps if you’re still reading this, Jesus loves you! ��

  • Oh my gosh! You’re not kidding when you said “dump everything in”. Like with the pasta I’d cook it aside then pop it back in. Screw other folks instructions I’m just dumping it all in with the pasta lol

  • This looks so good! I’m having breakfast right now but I really want to eat chilli now xD I am surely going to do the soup today, i LOVE soup ^^

  • not the Highlight the thumbs down but don’t understand why you would have not even one thumbs down excellent narrating and explaining how to do all 3 recipes no excessive talking which is a waste of time I loved it don’t let anybody tell you different if you can and I’ll look on your on your Channel see if you have pork loin recipe if not please do one thank you be safe happy Easter God bless

  • What a great idea! No more reheated prepped meal. I can eat freshly cooked meal everyday. No need to deal with the washing n cutting, just popped it into the oven or a cooker. Nice!

  • I got my instant pot free! The lady I clean for was afraid of her instant pot and she never used it. I asked her why, we made conversation and she gave it to me. I was so elated.

  • There should be a little “square” receptacle along the side/bottom of the IP where the included spoon can stand. Use that white spoon to open the valve.

  • Honestly, that was so sweet. Me and my husband have to cook all the time and 8:58 was me and him when things just don’t go as planned lol. It’s my favorite part bc instead of getting mad or frustrated we just look at each other and laugh. Idk I thought I’d share? lol

  • These look amazing even though I’m 100%not sure what a paleo diet is��. I love your first skillet…where did u get it? Tfs����❤��

  • I followed the directions for the risotto but my instant pot said “burn” soon as the pressure was built up. Opened the lid and the risotto was stuck to the bottom which I had to scrape really hard cuz it was burning. However had to cook on “Sautee” by stirring it continuously and adding more water. Then it came out perfect!

  • Made the chicken alfredo tonight, it was really good! I added a couple cups of frozen peas before I stirred in the parmesan, made it even better. I also let it slow release for 10minutes instead of a quick release. Gave the chicken time to rest & didn’t make a mess ��

  • Thoughts are energetic. Some are challenging to digest �� accept, forgive and give thanks to your body and its messengers. Allow these challenging energies to pass easily. Expect healing. Eliminate the oats and grains and enjoy greens and healing herbs.

  • I am trying to learn the best ways you use my Ninja which seems to work the same as an Insta-pot. As someone who is disabled with not much oomph, I do appreciate these new ‘gadgets’ that help speed up cooking time and does away with much of the standing and stirring. I liked the idea of the chicken Alfredo although I would have cut the chicken up before cooking it the first time.

  • Everything looks so nice and yummy. I’ll definitely give them a go. �� Where do you get the nutritional yeast from? I’m new to vegan food and don’t know where to buy it.

  • As a southern girl myself in trying to isolate your accent. North Carolina? I thought maybe Georgia but I dont think so. Alabama here.

  • Try to remember use Corn Starch with cold water. Mix until smooth then add and stir in your broth and no lumps. This will thicken and won’t have a raw flavor like flour. Use flour to make a roux then add to your broth. TFS

  • Hi, I really enjoyed watching your video. i am thinking about becoming vegan. How many serves do these meals make? I have a family of 6 to cook for.

  • Thanks for all your video’s, I love them! I’ve never meal prepped before but want to start. I’ve bought all my tubs, blender ect and I’ve taken a few dinner and smoothie recipes from your website and will do my shopping tomorrow for all the ingredients! I’m really looking forward to start meal prepping, it’s definitely a lot less daunting with all your helpful info on hand!:)

  • I find recipes easier to follow and more likely to try if I can see them in a video. I can’t wait to try these. My husband doesn’t like sweet potato but we’ll give this a try and see what happens.

  • I am 26 weeks preggers I watched ALOT of freezer meals videos and they are all heavy meat… I dont think its the way to go BUT I am glad I found your video will be making theses reciepes before I give birth to our lovely daughter:D thanks for this video!

  • I love your recipes and videos, I just find it sad that I have to skip the first two minutes of every video lately, because you either advertise your cookbook or show pictures of the baby.

  • For the shrimp and sausage recipe you could take your own ground pork, or lamb, beef and make your own sausage. It’s basically adding seasonings to your sausage and then writer leaving it in a ground pork, beef, or lamb texture or make it into patties or balls and then letting it sit for a few minutes before you cook it. I know this would be more time consuming but if your hard core paleo then this way you would know what went into the process of making the sausage and it would be paleo approved.
    Also, I highly doubt that sausage links that you get in the store or in other form is paleo. The paleo diet doesn’t consist of anything processed especially with the nitrites and nitrates.

  • The sausage will be just fine all tossed in at once. You don’t need to turn every single slice and batch cook it! And ugh…Why not remove the shrimp tails?! Why would I want to deal with those damn tails when chowing down?!!

  • Not sure if you’ll still be answering comments on this video but worth a shot! I was just wondering where you manage to find black beans in the UK? I’ve been searching high & low & haven’t found them in any of the supermarkets, not even lidl’s!

  • Can you use crock pot instead of instant pot and just cook for hrs instead of minutes??????? I don’t see the,need for the two of us to have one. We have a large crockpot.

  • Hello Sara.
    I follow you on your YouTube channel. Your recipes and dishes are easy to follow. I have preordered your cookbook. Thank you for sharing. May God bless you and keep you always.

  • Wow!!! New subscriber. All the meals look amazing….but that pot roast with gravy!!! I’m pretty new to instant pot cooking, but I’m going to try the pot roast first. Such an economical, hearty meal.

  • Hello, thanks for making all this meal prep videos. They are fantastic! Can you make more meal prep videos with more fish�� recipes on it? I’m not to fond of red meat or chicken. I only purchased fish for my meals. Thanks in advance!!

  • We’ve started using a 4 qt. instant pot the last 6 months or so, been enjoying it, thanks for your recipes we printed a couple of them to try!

  • I feel like beer should get a pass? It’s not quite to the caveman era, but I think it’s suitably ancient enough that i feel like you avoid all the processing you get once you’re past the agricultural revolution. (possibly; don’t quote me lol)

  • Lovely Video! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about Dinanlinson Perfection Guide Approach (do a search on google)? It is a great one off product for discovering a collection of tasty paleo recipes minus the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my best friend Jordan at last got astronomical results with it.

  • I tried all three of these and 1st of all they were in fact really fast and easy to make, especially if you precut everything at the beginning of the week. I have a newborn and family of 6 so I needed something fast and delicious. I paired the chili and the greek chicken with different styles of riced cauliflower and WOW! I will be adding these to my regular rotation.

  • Can you really make all of those and have them last from Sunday night to use Monday through Friday? I would think the foods would get soggy. Maybe make them and assemble later…??

  • I really enjoyed this video; it was relaxed and easy to watch. I’ve been considering a change in my diet lately, and have been looking at a lot of vegetarian and vegan meals (via video), and this is 1 of only a few that I’ve enjoyed, and really excited to try some of these recipes thank-you

  • Well done on creating a good, informative cooking-video, and putting it on YouTube for everyone to watch. All of the five meals that you prepared looked easy to cook, and they all looked like they would taste delicious too!

  • Where I live there are virtually no vegan choices when eating out, so I have to make all my own food. This video made my whole day! I’m so excited! These recipes look amazing and delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  • I came from dr axe channel comment you posted and subscribed right away without seeing your videos yet, nonetheless glad I found your channel and can start seeing your videos. Especially regarding the keto cycling you mentioned

    is chicken veggie sub good for keto diet……i have wheat or 9 grain sub…a bit of avacordo yellow banana peppers..herbs..spinach chicken tomatoes lettuce spinach onoins some cheese…green peppers for dressing i have sweet onoin from subway

  • So I’m not vegan, but this came across my feed and I clicked because it looked fantastic. I’m so happy I’ll be able to incorporate more fresh ingredients and veggie based meals into my diet. Also could the soup be made with butternut squash instead of sweet potato?

  • Hello Kayla, just wanted to comment on your fantastic speaker skills. You do a great job at speaking clearly and loudly for your audience. Keep up the great work! #keto

  • These dishes look amazing! And what I particularly like about them is that they’re all ingredients I can find in my area! I’ll definitely be giving these a try:)

  • That is awesome!! My husband and I are on a detox diet. No salt, sugar, carbs, grains, dairy, processed food. Only veggies and fruits. Most smoothies and salads.

  • New sub here, so pleased to have found this as a busy full time working woman who wants easy meals for a grown up family to help themselves to of an evening straight out of crock pot on warm. We all want to eat more plant based meals and I wanted some dump and go prep but all I kept finding was poke bowls, bland looking veg and rice/legumes and salads. This is perfect and can’t wait to try. TY x

  • This is so great! I’m not vegan, but we don’t eat a ton of meat, or much processed food, so I love these ideas for freezer meals! Thank you!

  • I read online that dairy can scald or curdle in the instant pot. I want to try the chicken alfredo recipe. Any issues like that???

  • I’ve done the first recipe using chicken and then again using shrimp. Both ways are so delicious. Just did the chili, and it is amazing! Sweet potatoes totally replace the beans. I added some tomato paste to thicken it up a bit, but your recipe is top notch either way. Thanks for posting such a great video!

  • 6:00 it gets even better if you roast the pine nuts first. You don’t need oil for this, just get a pan and let them get brown. I often make a similar dish and you absolutely have to roast them. It’s so good.

  • so you can just put the WHOLE thing in the slow cooker/instant pot and slowcook it and its done? don’t need to add onions/garlic first etc?

  • Great vegan recipes! I’m always looking for more. So do you freeze the containers as they are or cook them and then freeze them? I was only confused because the ziplock bags weren’t used so i wondered how you go about that:)

  • Hi, I’m a recent subscriber to your blog and newsletter, and yesterday I bought your vegan meal prep ebook. Today I tried meal prep for the first time with this 5 recipes of yours:-)
    It took me 3 hours from start to finish, but I suppose it was normal as it’s been the first time I made these recipes and the first time I made meal prep ahead! (and no frozen butternut squash available here):-)
    I enjoyed the process, thank you so much for what you share. Looking forward to tasting them!
    Greetings all the way from Italy

  • thanks for the vid…i’m learning how to change my eating style to reducing SOS (sugar, oils, sodium)….so i’m using the crock and pressure pots now…also it’s alot about implementing system and organizing…i’m learning to batch cook to not waste so much food and to be much more efficient….so many decades of eating a certain way and learning it is so much easier to batch meal prep!:)

  • Wow this was so helpful! I recently went primarily plant based and I have been looking for a way to prep more meals. I am allergic to butternut squash but it looks like I can just leave it out so I plan on trying al of these recipes! Thank you for sharing ��

  • A tip is to throw in some lentils, chickpeas or tofu in these recipes. They seem really tasty and yummy, but they also lack a lot of much needed protein.

    Just a friendly heads up for someone just starting veganism.

  • Loved you video. It’s in details and we’ll explained manner. You need great skills to do that.. I would appreciate your support and feedback. Keep up the good work.

  • Did you let it slowly pressure release For the chicken Alfredo? Or did you let it release the natural way? How long did it taken?

  • Ladies if you’re hesitant about getting an Instant Pot let me tell you about mine.
    I find that preparing meals in my Instant Pot is actually fun. I’m 77 years old and believe me I’ve done my fare share of cooking.
    I consider myself a pretty good cook. But I hate making a mess of my kitchen, and using multiple pans for one meal.
    Even though it just my husband and myself I got the 8 quart Instant Pot. I like to cook once and freeze for another meal with this larger pot I’m able to do that.
    I’ve yet to have a dish turn out bad in my IP and I’m preserving all of the vitamins and minerals. I ordered an accessories set from Amazon because I wanted to expand what I’m able to cook and also I’m able to make multiple dishes at once. For example, the other day I made a meatloaf, potatoes and corn bread all at the same time. My beef roasts are always fork tender and delicious, and I’m able to saute my roasts right in my Instant Pot and make gravy right in the same pot after I’ve cooked my roast and vegetables. I’ve made chili, and a number of different soups. I haven’t made cakes yet I may at some point.
    I can’t speak for any one else, but for me I absolutely love cooking in my Instant Pot it’s so fast, easy and convenient. I was a little intimidated about using it the first time but after watching a couple of recipes being prepared I tried making a beef roast with potatoes carrots onions, celery and gravy not really knowing what the end result would be, but to my surprise it was melt in your mouth tender and so flavorful. I could hardly wait to make my next meal. It’s all in one pot meal preparing and who doesn’t like that?

  • Ooops! The yogurt isn’t vegan… unless it’s a yogurt alternative like soy, coconut, etc. I’ve been freezing precooked meals but prepping & freezing is a great idea, thank you!

  • Just found your channel…really enjoying it. I have just replaced all my plastic with the ikea glass ones they are great…greetings from the uk

  • If you can find it, add a tablespoon of the adobo sauce from canned chilis in adobo to your chili. Its gives veggie chili a good umami flavor. I then freeze the rest of the sauce into tablespoon size portions for future prep. (If you use the actual chilis, they pack a punch. I recommend deseeding it if you have kids.)

  • This is exactly what I’ve always been looking for! I am a little skeptical on freezing the olive oil and yogurt though (not sure if probiotics die in the freezer)

  • i made everything except the soup and made it all vegan, my husband and I loved everything. making a slow change into a vegan lifestyle.
    im pregnant and looking for yummy, healthy and easy meals to make for my future family that i can cook up in a minute and these are all perfect xo

  • I really want to find videos with alternatives to single use plastic bags. I know you can rinse them and reuse but that only works a few times before they don’t work any more.

  • Thank you for this video! We’re no longer plant based but I still love to feed my family lots of healthy non processed foods. Plus, I can easily add some animal protein to these if need be. I was very put off when I saw other videos and every meal included canned veg and canned condensed soup ����

    Edit: that tofu tikka masala looks amazing �� definitely trying that one out

  • You can actually use a sharpie right on a glass container. It’s a nonporous surface so when you’re done, the marker will come off easily with rubbing alcohol. Then you don’t have to deal with taping a label on.

  • excellent videos. God bless you and may He empower you to keep creating great videos. Feeling inspired to eat healthier in 2019!

  • I have never cooked with Tofu I am sure I have eaten it but not used in recipe. Think I am going to give a try. Any tips on purchase?
