  • Can we take a moment and appreciate THE MUSIC. I literally want to make salads and take a spin or a dance class. I love it! YouTube gold, healthy food prep and dance music. Great combo��

  • Why remove the skins they are the super food of today particularly the greens, how many people purchase the super green powders

    The skins also provide a good source of fibre hence keeping you fuller for longer

  • Your dishes are great, really, very tasty and creative, but in the oposite, the music you use �� I am sorry, but I always have to turn the volume off. But the foos is great congrats.

  • This is to much work for lunch meals. Boiling potatoes, green beans, etc. You would have to meal prep and make more than one meal out of these recipes. Who has time to be in the kitchen doing all of this and just for one meal. Good ideas though!

  • Where did you get your knifes?? These are awesome recipes, Thanks for sharing. I’m on a weight loss journey to lose 65 pounds…����

  • mars 2019: wow a good recipes
    april 2019: iam gonna try those lunches
    mai 2019: tomorrow is a new healthy day for me
    december 2019: i need to try those recipes
    juin 2020: still not try any of’em

  • It looks so yummy but it’s hard to make my brother love vegetables cause he will pick the high protein things more than veggies you know he’s actually 17, but act like 7��

  • Can’t eat peppers. Can you make recipes with a wider variety of ingredients? They all seem to have tomatoes, peppers in them. Lots use mushrooms.too. Not everyone can eat those. You cool down those eggs and potatoes too, right? Cause if not….bleck!

  • I make this for when I want to lose weight, here’s the recipee:
    1.Take two whole grain slices of bread and toast them with or without butter, your choice
    2. Choose your choice of meat/protein, it could be eggs, chicken breast, tuna or beef but make sure to cook it with little oil or no at all
    3. Take 5-10 pieces of lettuce, and place them on your bread. I usually put on 7
    4. Cut up tomatoes and also put them on. Then choose whatever other veggies you want
    5. You can put some sauce on the bread too. But make sure to use only 1-2 tablespoon of the sauce.
    6. Basically I would eat this on my diet days, and would lose from 1-2 kg in 3 days. I want to not overwhelm myself with a too strict diet so that’s why I make this ( tip: drink a full glass of water 30 minutes before eating)
