  • Meal planning dinners for me is easy (I tend to over spend so these tips will help)
    It’s the constant eating from my kids and trying to have enough food for breakfast and lunch everyday. We usually run out of food by Friday ��

  • I can’t believe someone out there thinks this food is healthy or good for us((( can food is dangerous but people don’t understand.

  • Hi hun loved that idea I always spend far too much on shopping as live in a tiny village so alot of coop top up shops but I have just passed my driving test today so will be travelling to find the perfect aldi thanks hun xxx

  • Thank you Jordan! Meal planning has changed us in soooo many wonderful ways. We are eating better, we are feeling better, our budget is looking better! During this quartine time I have been doing the shelf challenge consistently. It’s amazing how much food we really have. I pretend I’m on a cooking game show, where you have to make what’s given in a box or something ������ weird I know, quartine life! ���� also.. doing inventory consistently has changed everything. Saving so much and have found things I forgot or didn’t know I had! ������ thank you so much!! ��������

  • I really liked the video. Good for inspiration. I would eat more veggies with my meals. Salad has a low nutritional value. Maybe Frozen green beans or spinach, that is what I like to use.

  • Is Custokebon Secrets effective to lost crazy amounts of weight? We’ve read a lot of good stuff about Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine).

  • COVID messed my hours up at work and I want to finally start working out and eating right but I don’t earn as much anymore so this is very much needed thank you

  • hi chloe! would you consider making a vegetarian/vegan meal video? i know you sometimes have vegan recipes but i haven’t seen much healthy eating videos for vegetarians across youtube!

  • Can someone pls explain how his isnt too much cals in one bowl. That much rice and all the stuff together. I dont get it:( if i d eat that i would gain weight

  • I do think the title is a bit off but I still think is very helpful. I usually have a freezer full of food and forget what I have and buy more than I need on some things. I wanna watch your other videos

  • my recipe binder is Pinterest, I made different categories so when there’s a recipe that looks good but I haven’t made it I put it in my try out category. When I make the recipe and its good I place it in my everyday foods category which is sub divided into main course, salads, soups, etc. You can also add notes to your pins, so yeah.

  • I assume you’d be heating those up in the microwave before serving, and would think you’d need to add some liquid or else rice, etc. will dry out in the reheating process?

  • From where i live, most of these ingredients are pretty expensive but these are amazing recipes! i’ve lived in australia for a while and their prices there are so cheap. Thank you so much for these!

  • I like the way you say Garam Masala. Soo beautiful and ���� Indian. You, your voice and the food your prepare,wow I would give my life for a girl like you ❤

  • One of my favorite apps is called Copy Me That you download the app and search for recipes on line and it weeds out all the commentary included on the page and lets you copy just the recipe to your copy me that account, and you can create a meal plan and a grocery list. I love it because I don’t have to read through and entire page of text to get to the recipe and I can add tags to the recipe so that I can find recipes based on ingredients like ground beef. The best part is if i am at the store and can’t remember what was in a recipe or am looking for dinner ideas i can open the app and search my recipes.

  • I definitely understand the gist of what you are saying but on the one point about eating out always being more expensive, that’s just not true when you’re single. Buying all the ingredients to make what the Chinese restaurant can serve me up in there authentic healthy dish of fish stew that provides me five meals when I add in some sweet potato noodles, it just isn’t the same as what it would cost me if I made it myself. Sometimes when you’re single you have to think about whether it’s actually cheaper to eat out. Zero produce waste that way! Great tips otherwise that I mostly follow.

  • Someone help me. So basically I eat rice everyday coz I’m brown and that’s what we eat everyday but is this bad or is it fine and I’m trying to get abs ����

  • Just discovered your channel and I’m loving your videos! I am from Toronto as well so your content is super relatable. Can’t wait to see more!

  • Maybe I’m missing something but how does 20p + 24p + 5p + 30p on Tuesday = 40p per person? You used the per person cost then still divided it by 2 anyway?

  • Sorry but this isn’t a whole weeks meals for two. What about lunches, breakfasts, drinks (like your tea!) and the two other days of the week that you have missed entirely… This is only 5 meals out of 21 hence the low low total.
    I would also question your portion sizes as well, for example on the monday you use 5p worth of brown rice per person. Assuming that this is the 0.79p/1kg bag of rice from Aldi this equates to approx 63g of rice suggested portion size is 75g.

  • It *really helps to stick to your grocery list if you eat a good meal before you go to the store, you just don’t get tempted to buy crazy stuff, that would be my tip. Another thing I think of is, I hate cooked vegetables (except for corn or potatoes) so when I use frozen peas, for instance, I just let them defrost and throw them in my salad. Last week, I spent a little over $20 for the whole week because I just bought veggies and protein (no meat).

    I agree it’s crazy to buy all those special nutritional powders; they’re so astronomically priced! Buy a couple of them, and you just burned down $50-$80! But being an inconsistent human being ;-), I do buy spirulina because it gives me amazing stamina but that is literally my only big ticket food item, and it lasts me a couple months.

  • Elo! I hope you find this useful! Feel free to share your foodie frugal recipes in the comments! Don’t forget to give the vid a ���� so I know you enjoy this content �� Honestly, Aldi has made like a lot easier for me ����xxxxxxx

  • An app that makes shelf cooking almost automatic is Cooklist. I recently found this app and have been blown away! It allows you to order groceries from local stores right out of the app and it automatically adds your purchases (the exact ones: brand, size and all) to your pantry inventory. It also estimates expiration dates for you and warns you when something needs to be used up. The meal planning feature allows you to search thousands of recipes from every where online (or add your own) and it shows for each recipe how many ingredients you have on hand for that recipe. If you don’t have an ingredient it offers substitute ideas from your pantry or you can add it to the shopping list and the cycle continues. After you make a meal, it will asked if you cooked it and will pull up those ingredients so you can adjust your quantities you have remaining. The meal planning and recipes always show the macro and micro nutritional information so you can see how your plan looks as a whole or by recipe. It’s so easy to use and keep for anyone with specific food needs. There is a cost that amounts to just over $1 per week. But I definitely save more than that by not impulsively grabbing items at the store or not throwing out food that got forgotten. It’s amazing and a game changer!

  • I actually have subscribed to selected channels only and your channel is my favorite. It is always so relaxing and informative to be watching your videos. You are really an Aldi-gal to the core and I can’t say, how much I agree with this, because I’m a Hofer-gal (Austrian name for Aldi, I think I’ve only mentioned this a 1000 times ��). But they really have what it takes to enable a life on a budget. And by the way, I love the pen you’re using in your video. We in Austria haven’t had a monarchy since the end of World War I and I don’t miss it, but I am a big fan of Queen Elizabeth II, she is such a remarkable lady. I’m not a particularly religious person but God may save her! And God may also bless you, your family and your inspiring work which I consider to be art! ��

  • we spend for a family of 3 kids and 2 adults only spend 180 for all food and paper/diapers etc ever 2 weeks. so in total of family of 5 and per month only spend trick is…..trying to stick to budget and not trying to just get a bunch of stuff. Americans spend a ridiculous amount of money on groceries and it usually due to one not planning and or all the snacks/junk. we mostly veggies fruits all fresh etc…tip is GO to ALDIS ha

  • Hahaha I just love your pen! That made me laugh so much ���� but omg I LOVE this video idea! This is SO GREAT AND HELPFUL! when you’re a broke ass b*tch like me ������ I definitely am guilty of spending WAAYY too much money on food and always popping in to the shop for one or 2 things and ending up coming out with a bag full and £20 down! Even £10 here and there really really adds up just buying little things now and then! So it definitely is much better writing a list of everything you’ll need for a week and doing a big shop all at once! And then I would need to restrain and stop myself from going anywhere near a shop again and being tempted to buy things I don’t need! haha ����

  • @pickuplimes I am watching these videos for over a yr I guess.. I can’t tell you how much I love watching your videos.. You have such a calming voice and that smile ��❤️

  • Hey Chloe, firstly congrats on your 2M subscribers! Very much well deserved ��

    I came across your channel about one and a half months ago and I feel super glad right now that I did. Your workout programs are so amazing. I wasn’t expecting any huge change in my body but now when I see my before-after pictures I feel so happy and proud that I stuck throughout your entire programs. I never liked exercising before but your workouts have somehow become a part of my everyday routine now! Thank you for bringing such a positive impact; you are truly great and you deserve all the appreciation ����

    Also a big hug to the Chloe Ting community where there are tons of nice people who never fail to motivate you just when you need it!! ��

  • literally have the Breakfast ☆ Peanut Butter and Jelly Oats Bar in the oven now… decide to try it sometime after coming across this vid!

  • Well if you go to Romania you can cheat a little, on the Netherlands it will probably be more expensive. Also Portugal is another pretty cheap one.

  • I am going to love this whole series from the meal planning to meal videos. Pleeeease do this regularly �� thank you for sharing x

  • Hallo everyone. I have been wanting a meal plan video for a while you have the best food tips. Thank you Sophie my pen is ready ☕️

  • I do like the idea but the lack of veriety would ruin it for me. If I try to eat the same thing a couple days in a row I start gagging on it.

  • You are quite lucky, Holland is one of the cheapest countries in Europe when I have the opportunity to travel there I was in shock it’s 4-time cheaper then Filnad and I’m from Poland and some of the stuff that in shops where much cheaper then in Poland even if you count in Polish zloty and we are earning 4 timeless they Dutch people:D

  • I found you by accident. I have been furloughed twice this year and now I need to really budget for groceries! I love your personality, and your great tips!! Thank you!! AND I’m a total pen junkie and I’m going to order those pens! I love Pilot pens!!

  • The truth is a healthy eating plan that has worked very well for me personally, I hope everyone achieves their goal and for those who want to know what my weekly plan is, leave your mail to send it to you.

  • I loved this video! I always get stuck in a meal rut so this gave me some good ideas and saving money is always good. I look forward to more like this hopefully �� xx ✌️

  • Hi Chloe, my name is Diana, I’m a fan of yours and I like to follow your videos, I’m Spanish and your videos can only be subtitled in English or Vietnamese. Could you authorize automatic or Spanish subtitles also please?

  • I just made that chilli for lunch and it is so good! �� Thank you so much for your recipes Sadia ❤️
    And I saw a question about the soy veggie ground. It’s not avaliable in my country either, so I bought soy crumble, cooked it, drained and squeezed the water out. Then I used 200g of it. I saved the rest and I will find a recipe, where I can use it. It really is kinda like ground meat and I am actually excited about it ��. And it’s really cheap too ��

  • I had a slow metabolism until i tried @t. Now i am losing weight and fat very fast, this @t is magical. If you want to lose weight and fat very fast and healty, you need to try it @t. You don’t need to stick to a diet, you can eat everything you want. Just give this a chance. This increases longevity and decreases hunger. It helps with blood sugar control. Just try it @t

  • Meal planning is �� the way to save money. Also making stews, soups and Chili’s and eating them 3 days in a row also saves soooo much ��.

  • Honestly in Guyana we don’t eat the same thing for a whole week so this would be hard for someone like me �� we cook fresh meals everyday but I can do it for a day

  • Be intentional about your purchases make shopping lists with items you really need. Do not go shopping when you are hungry to prevent impulse buying. Do not keep junk, unhealthy foods in your house.

  • Oh my, oh my. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have found your videos! You got me all domesticated �� it was a much needed change not even mentioning that for the first time in my life….. I’m saving $$$!! I love watching your videos, so informative, helpful, and I have so much fun watching them, I love your humor �� Thank you and please keep doing what you do! ♥️ in today’s world no one tells a gal how to run a household ��

  • medium seized vegetables looks pretty large, i would say they american medium seized, but in my country (ukraine) the would be considered extra large XD

  • I love your meal plan I am going to copy it out right now,and showing the people you can have healthy meals on a tight budget well done like to see the £2 meal for the week love watching your videos

  • Can I just point out that Australian’s speak English?? like apparently the whole world categorises it as a new fucking language? the fuck you think we speak?

  • Oh my God I watch this after 7 month this is supposed to then it’s called seven meals seven ingredients $7 well I think seven is her lucky number

  • I love these videos but the title of this video is kind of misleading. I am just imagining someone in dire straights, hopeful they can make $25 work for their family for a week, and then they see you open your completely full fridge… -_-

  • I love these ideas �� I watched it twice back to back �� since it’s so helpful and would like to implement it from today only ����

  • Thankyou, Miss Ting. This is how I want to eat! The closest I’ve come is: I made a large ass salad and separated it into 2 tupperwares for my lunches. However, I would LOVE to do this for myself. I live in America where there are SO MANY unhealthy options for eating (*excuses*).

  • Me watching this after my workout in the morning and haven’t eaten my breakfast yet. Yum yum. This really gave me an idea. Tnx Chloeeeee ������

  • So I was wondering your opinion. My kids are so extremely picky and I’m struggling with ideas here. My kids are 2, 4, and 9. It’s difficult because I feel like I never sit down to eat because of getting up to make different things for each of them. Do I tell them they have to eat the food there given and they don’t get anything else? After dinner they always want something else. So I’m dreading going to the store today I’m out of ideas.

  • I’m a new subscriber. So glad I found you!! I’ve been on a weight plateau for so long�� but your tips seem easy and effective. Gonna try!!

  • Hobo chip bag. Hamburger meat with taco seasoning your favorite chips potentially in a bag with salsa guac cheese maybe sour cream. Put it all in the bag shake it up done. Works best with the little chip bags saves you some dishes too.

  • That CLUNKING noise!! I can’t continue to watch anymore, I’m out!! This CLUNKING noise is so IRRITATING and DISTRACTING! I’m giving this video a thumbs down! Byeeeeee!!!

  • Eating out can most of the time ruin my budget, so I have lessened doing that. These are great tips and I am sure is very helpful for beginners who are struggling on a budget. This is so much fun, saving and at the same time eating healthy! So cool!!!

  • I can sautee some frozen veggies that taste amazing. It takes time.
    Add only enough veg to cover the bottom of the sauce pan.
    Turn the heat on high and constantly stir them until most of the water boils off and then turn it on a low medium add olive oil or spray let them sit till color starts to show and then stir. When almost golden all around add seasonings and finish with a minute or two more of cooking
    Perfection, at least to me
    I use garlic and onion powder with a little bit of salt

  • What about lunch and breakfast? I’d love to see a full weeks shop. We seem to be spending so much it can’t work it out family of 4

  • watching ur videos evernight now its almost 3am and I promise myself to follow ur exercises every night bt then the next morning am like..ok will do it tmr tmr tmr

  • I always eat before I go to the grocery store to shop. If I go shopping when I’m hungry, I always end up buying things I don’t need, or things that aren’t healthy.

  • If she had of chosen a protein for a dollar less, she could have purchased some tomato paste or sauce and made a casserole. In addition, a stew/ soup without the paste (using the bouillon and flour), to break up the monotony of the meals. I could not eat the same exact thing seven days in a row.

  • So I tried the breakfast bars with almond butter (I’m not too much of a Fan of PB), oats milk and agave as the sweetener and OMG!!!!! You are amazing. These are soooo delish!!!!!!

  • Great tips on budgeting! One concept that helps me at the grocery store/shopping is writing up a menu (2 weeks) and doing my groceries according to my meal menus.

  • I used to think I did not have time to meal plan like this. Well, I made some time & committed to sticking to it and now I have so much free time during the day which I use to entertain my only child. Also, belive it or not, my extended family would judge me as crazy & obsessive when they found out I meal planned like her. I had to ignore them and enjoy my humble home & precious family.

  • Can you do some videos on cooking for the freezer? So you can stock a freezer with things so you aren’t tempted to go out or just have a sugary cereal for dinner? Tips on sugar busting would be good as well. My go yo thing is cereal, which I eat far too often. Because I do not feel well enough to cook, or don’t have time. Trying to get out of this downward feeding spiral. Thanks.

  • Good going Lindey! That kinda dish is by far one of my favorites! Although “Chicken Ala King” is even better, especially when you include some pearl onions in the mix! That seasoning mix sounds great too!

  • You can apply for Food Bank which is free, and order Good Food Box for about $20 for about 10 or 20 pounds of good healthy delicious fruit and vegetables.

  • I really really really enjoy your channel but why do you always have your mouth open in the thumbnail? It puts me off I cannot even explain why! More thumbnails with mouth closed please, but honestly I really enjoy the content:) x

  • Too fast to keep up with you!!! I played over and over again. It’s about the black and red pens. I don’t understand the part about what u do with them. Or what u Mark with them on your grocery list.

  • I am a new subscriber. I have been watching all your vids and doing the workout during quarantine. Love them and I love your personalty and you are beyond gorgeous! Amazing person! and I love how educated you are!<3

  • I put a video on and went to another room. I’ve heard a timer starting and started panicking that i am missing an exercise:D Chloe Ting conditioned me

  • Would you have some recipes for healthy meals that one can enjoy without needed to heat up the food? Salads are great, but I need to add proteins that balance out the meal.

    I used to pack my lunch to work all the time. In those days I freely used the microwave that was available to staff. Then, I started getting feedback from professionals in the natural medicine field, including nutritionists like yourself. The microwave alters food in ways that are not good for the body.

    Unfortunately, the microwave has been the only available alternative to those who brought leftovers from last night’s supper, their own recipes, etc. In order to avoid microwaves I started buying my lunch from a Gateway outlet in my building. Fortunately, the offerings include several healthy meals. And I’m able to afford them. Now, I’d like to cut back on buying lunch all the time.

    Thanks in advance for any workable ideas I might add to my repertoire.:-)

  • So I just started following your channel and it is awesome! I love the simplicity and the information provided. Thanks for making them available as I know it must take unimaginable time and effort to make.

  • Also I love the idea of buying “different colours” with fruit and veg, you are right, different colours give you different vitamins. I will go by that from now on. So simple yet so helpful

  • ground beef and corn tortillas… hmmm what could I possibly make with these two ingredients?! lol if you’re Mexican you understand the irony in her dilemma CLASSIC HARD SHELL TACOS! so yummy, so easy!:)

  • My diet plan for eating every 2 hours is
    6.00 am wakeup
    6.15 am 200 ml of boiled cumin water
    7.00 am green tea
    9.00 am Indian breakfast idly/upma/dosa/poha/vada/puri / waffles with blueberry jam
    11.00 am lemon water
    1.00 pm 1 chapati with any Indian veg or non-veg curry
    3.00 pm 1 medium glass of buttermilk/ 5 tablespoon curd (since my body is heat body )
    5.00 pm any kind of fruit/ nuts/ green tea/ lemon water
    8.00 pm Suffola masala oats 1 small cup/ 1 chapati
    10.00 pm sleep

    My daily Selfcare:
    8 hours of sleep
    3liter of water
    Fitness chloe tings program
    Meditation for 5 minutes
    no sugar
    no junk food/street food

    Note: If I get a little bit starving in between evening snack and my dinner I mostly eat a small or medium banana
    If you ask why banana? The banana will reduce our food starving and gives instant energy to our body.

    Hope you guys are safe in quarantine…

  • My problem is, I can never think of anything that me and my husband will eat that also my kids will eat that I know how to cook and my fridge is full of condiments and other random things and I do NOT have freezer of meats… did I mention I don’t know any recipes by heart? well.. except spaghetti.

  • Hi I really appreciate that you put this amazing videos but I have a question for you how do you save the food??and please continue the great work luv u��

  • Danke für die schönen Rezepte und das fertig zubereitete Essen. Es sieht schon so appetitlich aus und schmeckt bestimmt
    hervorragend. Ich werde es probieren.

  • Honestly, thank you so much for the help and motivation. You’re inspiring me to eat more healthier even now I am back to work. Thank you, Chloe.

  • Has anyone tried Custokebon Secrets? (do a search on google) We’ve noticed many awesome things about this popular lose weight method.

  • I found this very helpful thankyou love you chloe.. I just started my channel and now have 38 subs I’m excite about the process…your hard work and process is so inspiring…let’s all help eachother grow this 2020:)

  • I know this is an old video but everything is so inexpensive to buy. I live in the us and currency exchange rate is pretty even but she was buying stuff for such a low price and here everything would be at least a dollar at Walmart (one of the cheapest grocery stores)

  • Great tips, but if I had this much food already in my house, with multiple freezers and fridges. Sure! 25 dollars a week would be no problem haha. But this is unrealistic for my situation.

  • You can cook the eggs and the rice by just putting the egg at the top of the ruce grains before starting cooking the rice thats how we do it here in the pihillipines lavyah chloe♡♡♡

  • I loved the videos, but the prices are a bit unrealistic. It is not like you can you to the store and get a few grams of sauce or salt for a few cents

  • Could you do another one or two of these kinds of videos but with different ingredients? I was thinking of just making these for my own lil meal plan but I wouldn’t survive without more variety �� otherwise would some other people be able to recommend videos like this? Thank you!

  • As specialist, I believe Custokebon Secrets is actually good way to lost a lot of fat. Why don’t you give it a chance? perhaps it’s going to work for you too.

  • I had been doing shelf September for a while to declutter and use up extras in the kitchen then covid came and we hardly had anything to eat. Had to go do a stock up without hoarding though but honestly the cupboards were bare

  • Drink water! Always have a water bottle in your bag to stop impulse buying drinks because you are thirsty. I also have a small thermos for tea and rarely go into cafes anymore. Only as a treat! Saves me loads of money:)

  • Chloe ting you are truly a package�� you take good care of your health very well and cook very well������ I HOPE ALL……..


  • Thank you Chloe for your videos! You have been the motivation I’ve needed. Your videos are easy to follow and they are so easy to binge. Keep being you ☺️

  • I used to work at a very well known company that made and packaged juice and applesauce,and the only difference between storebrand and our brand was that we changed the label not the product,and charged more for the name brand.

  • Could you make a whole day meal video for vegtarians please? P.S u are my role model and u are the only youtuber I LOVE, thank you for that. love u <3

  • has anyone told you you look like Sandra Bullock?:) love the video, seeing your channel for the first time, loving the content, subscribed!!

  • Trato de encontrar un video donde logre entender tu idioma, ������ para perder peso, no solo con tus rutinas si no una de alimentación también, puedes ayudarme��
    ¿Como puedo comprarte un plan de alimentación?

  • Soph this has helped me so much, as a student I really struggle to make food for myself without spending a fortune in fact I always buy lots of food that I fancy that day but none of it ever goes together in a meal if that makes sense. Please please pleaaaase many more videos like this!!!!

  • I can’t believe I didn’t know about Chloe’s channel until a few days ago. And I can’t believe we get all this content for free. She’s so amazingggg

  • This is probably going to sound like a daft question, but how are you guys reheating the chicken/rice meal? I just want to make sure I don’t poison myself with the rice >_< (I need any cooking related stuff dumbed down). Also is it ok to eat it cold?

  • Backing powder contains alluminium and other dangerous chemical addings. Better use backing soda ( eatable) after you put some apple cider vinegar to make it less burning

  • I worked out for a long time but didn’t get results because of a poor diet. I then found a website called NextLevelDiet, finally I started seeing results

  • Loved this �� very helpful! Me and my partner spend a more a week and still have to pop to the shop for other bits we forgot! Looking forward to seeing the making of the meals:)

  • You got me, I love this balanced and relaxed style of thinking about diet.
    I really believe that eating healthy is easier than people might think, my friends are always saying “Oh, I don’t have time to eat healthier, I don’t have money to buy organic food”
    But we need to analyse what’s a real obstacle and was just an excuse for not changing
    New sub

  • Hi chloe I hope u see this comment because it would really helpful if you make a video of easy lunches that we can make(to go to school) because is kinda hard to make some of your recipes for lunch if we have to go school ��thank you for sharing all your videos with us love u ����

  • Thanks for sharing, this is good in general. �� The breakfast idea, I haven’t tried it that way, can’t wait to. I’m definitely going for the oatmeal bake.

  • Sophie if you haven’t already done one, could you maybe do a homemade chip recipe vid please? I know they are so much better for you than oven (and cheaper) but mine always turn out greasy and underwhelming maybe using the wrong oils etc.

  • This is helpful I must start meal planning to save on food waste as well as money, thanks for sharing…… my only thing to point out, my hubby wouldn’t be full on having soup for dinner lol

  • Anybody tested out the Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google)? We have noticed many amazing things about this popular fat burn secrets.

  • Using a sharpie to mark in large numbers the expiration date on cans, boxes, packages can help to see what needs to be used before it expires because it all expires. I just did a pantry purge and was shocked what had expired because it seemed like I had bought them not that long ago. I also do that when I open a salsa, condiment or something like that because they can go bad open in the refrigerator. I got deathly ill off of old apple butter.

  • This is interesting thanks. Personally I like to pack in a load more veg but maybe you’ve got that in your snacks / lunch. Love the planner I’m going to get me one of them

  • Your costings are not quite right, but the principles of this are wonderful and thanks for posting it. I’ve lost two stone doing portion control and an intermittent fasting routine, but want to change what I do, so have been spending hours looking for something new to do and I am going to try our your programs, although I have horrendous knees (can’t do running, hopping, skipping, jumping or twisting it’s agony for me). You are the FIRST and ONLY person online who has shown ALL the exercises in low-impact versions, so I now feel liberated to try the workouts too. Thanks so much for this. All my best.

  • thats crazy…. I’m thinking about going to $25 a week for just me… like 1 person lol. And I don’t eat out or anything, only groceries and cooking at home

  • Side note for people who don’t have a lot of freezer space: Get the FLIPP app and look at what’s on sale for meat, then lookup recipes with those types of meat, also using what you have on hand. I have one of the tiny fridge freezer combos that you find in an apartment, where the top freezer is a bit bigger than a microwave lol.

  • Meal planning for some reason has always been a huge struggle for me and I don’t really knw why cuz it’s only myself and my boyfriend haha! I feel like we’re always over spending and end up throwing a lot away so this method is super helpful and I’ll definitely be using it! Thank you!!

  • There’s also another app called Supercook (free) and you can enter your items by voicing it. Makes it easier since you don’t have to write anything down xx love your videos

  • Bruh I could eat 8 of those meals a day and probably wouldn’t be enough calories so much for price example go have 1 fish egg is only 1£ so cheap and so delicious yea but is that enough food and is it actually cheap? no.

  • To the Chana Dal, to enhance the flavour, after you add the powdered spices to the onions, let it cook till it releases oil itself, that’s when you know it’s cooked through. love xx

  • Great video! I understand why you wanted to make this quick and concise, but if you ever decide to make a more in-depth video for smart shopping, I would definitely watch <3

  • Wouldn’t getting the 3lb frozen chicken breast or tender be cheaper? You could that just use three pieces and save the rest for later. Cutting them thinner if needed. It’s a little bit more time and thought but 2 dollars is always worth it for me.

  • Can you do a video on how you stock your pantry, for beginners? You have a lot of food in bulk in your pantry/freezer at all times and you seem really prepared! What is important to keep in stock? Whats your mentality in keeping a full pantry? I’m a newbie cook and rarely have more than a single can of beans hanging out in the pantry. �� Love your videos!

  • Hubby and I both cook for a living (he is actually a kitchen manager) and we plan plan plan all the time…ya know what we suck at back at home….plan plan plan. I think it is that we spend so much energy doing that when we are working that we don’t want to when we are home. I am taking the bull by the horns during this covid crazy where Colorado is just starting to open back up (I am not working at the moment, I chase a 1 year old all day.) And trying to cut household costs where I can

  • This is great! Just plain good for you food that won’t break the bank. Nothing fried and it is a balanced meal. So much better for you than fast food!!!

  • I love your channel and this video was so helpful. Would love a lunch version as I struggle for inspiration for lunches to bring to college. Also can’t wait to see those vegan kebabs��❤️

  • Jordan Shelftember made me laugh because I did a pantry challenge end of January and all of Feb. I did really well and was able to work down my pantry stock and my freezer. I was proud of myself. We went on a family trip the first week of March then came home just before Covid started. I had a HUGE 0h crap moment! Luckily I was able to find what I needed to get my pantry and freezer back up to normal par levels. We are a family of 3 adults and a happy side note was that nothing in my house is even close to an expiration date due to the pantry challenge.:-)

  • The chicken and rice recipe was super good! Just made it, with chicken breast and canned Italian diced tomatoes. Really easy and satisfying.

  • Meal preparation and refregration n again heating and eating it can lead lot of health troubles specialy realated to stomach..according to Ayurveda… That’s y Indians preffer fresh food

  • I buy a big bag of frozen blueberries for my smoothies it lasts me about a month and I pay 9.99$ at target. I have about 3 to 4 of them a week

  • I can’t tell you how helpful this is! I am definitely copying your meal plan. Who doesn’t love “mouldy veg” �� It’s amazing how cheap you have got this healthy meal plan?? I find I spend so much money on food. Can’t wait for the what I eat in a week

  • I bought an instant pot because of you and it is amazing! Not my style of food, but I appreciate this type of video. Money-saving tips are always welcome. Cheers:)

  • 8 * 3 meals * 7 days = 168.

    $25 / 168 = $0.148 a meal, no snacks.

    Basically let me eat $100 of stuff I have one hand then add $25 to it.

    If you were going to feed someone for $.15 a meal consistently it wouldn’t be a balance diet. You’d have to hit potatoes / rice / beans extremely hard (and you still are probably over budget).

  • Jordan, just found your channel today while staying home from this coronavirus stuff. First I would like to say I truly love the humor you inject into your videos. They are informative and humorous and just what we need right now. You have taught me today a new way to build meals and I look forward to trying it. Thank you for the time and effort you put into each video and for sharing them with us. I cannot wait to watch more. Stay safe out there.

  • I don’t get the flexitarian thing…I mean once a week is as much meat I ate before I went vegan when I was eating regularly. Maybe that’s not much where you’re from but in Germany it is basically just a omnivore diet but what do I know. Loved the video anyway ��

  • I hardly eat out at restaurants. The only time is for special occasions. I also am limiting my time at fast food restaurants. I am making it a goal to cook more at home and eat fast food less than five times a month, only when necessary.

  • How big are your portion size (weight)?
    When I did make it, the breakfast was a very small but diner too big
    So how much do you eat a day?

  • Mam l don’t like leafy vegetables but l know its real necessary for our health. But l Dont like them. Can u tell me any other way to have them like from juice or else.

  • The problem with writing the date and what it is on the plastic (freezer) is that you can not reuse the plastic… I just think we throw away tooooo many plastic into the environment…… really……

  • Dear Chloe ting

    My sister introduced me to ur channel a few months ago and I started doing a workout vid with her. I started doing workouts on my own and watching more of your vids. You really motivated me to workout everyday and to stay healthy. Thank u for all the tips. Your vids make me laugh and smile and feel self confident so thank you for that. ❤️

  • For the chilli, I think you should cook off your spice and tomato paste before, rather than just adding to liquid, like how they did for the chana dahl. You should also season throughout. This recipe wont get a full deep flavour if cooked like that. But really nice idea:)

  • Im Vegan for many many years and food I eat its mostly the same way as u do,,, I cook all my food and love the test Im sure your dishes are ummmmy too but the thing is im not sure where do u live I just buy a small pack of Pasta for 2.99 $ in Canada,,, I love my food and your show thanks

  • Produce out of season also doesn’t taste very good. Costco sells berries year round but they are very tart in winter. Why not buy some oranges or pomegranates instead?

  • Tip: slice the leaves of kale along the stem to de-stem the softer leaves, tear in half/ thirds or slice and ready to cook. Easy! YUM Kale!

  • Hi chloe today was my first day of doing your 2 week workout. Can’t wait to see how things go and start another one. Send results soon.

  • buying in bulk does not always work for me -this is a great video on eating healthy nutritious meals without breaking the wallet or the “budget”�� thank-you! cheers!

  • Hi Sophie��I really enjoyed your video. I’ve been having the vegan kebabs too. I serve mine with Tesco garlic and coriander flat breads. Plus I make home made spiced onions and serve with salad…total game changer��Fx.

  • Do you reheat the dinner meals or do you eat them cold? Reason being, i was told never to reheat rice or chicken. I do wounder how safe meal prep foods are, i see a lot of them but never really know how people make them safe to eat. On the Food Standards Agency website mention reheating these foods can increase the chances of you suffering from food poisoning, and i don’t want that. So how do you avoid it?

  • Can you make an indian version of these meals,i know i am asking more but you are a blessing to me and i wanna try these kind of meals;)

  • For real transformation you need perfect diet plan and training plan. The website called NextLevelDiet do it for you. I lost 14lbs in one month!!! Isn’t that amazing!?

  • I read that to really absorb protein you should eat beans/lentils with rice. Something about the amino acids of the 2 ingredients combining to make the protein that humans need. Is that right?

  • Damn I am switching to ‘Vegan’ world, thanks to the lovely Sadia.:) by the way, it costs me more then 2 euro, where do you do your groceries?:P Anyway I love it.

  • I just love how you don’t get hate or anything bad you don’t get involved into a WHOLE CHEESY FIGHT and mind your own business and do your thing
    And I wish you the best of life and day ❤️❤️����❤️��❤️����������

  • This is not appeasing at all. I would rather bump it up $10 $15 and actually enjoy my weeks worth of food. This is ridiculous honestly.

  • Dear Sadia, I love your videos and have already tried out a lot of your recipies yummie! I would be interested in a video about your style, especially your clothes. I like your style a lot and I was wondering if you only buy vegan clothes and where you usually shop, for example sustainable fashion? Or do you buy everything second hand? It would be great if there could be a video about this in the future. Love from Germany!

  • Frozen fruit in overnight oats are yummy in my opinion. Frozen veg and fruit are often better than some of the ones in our UK supermarkets. I have bought fresh avocados and they have been awful. We can get stuff like that in budget shops like Iceland which are much better.0

  • I’m legitimately curious… with such a beautiful house do you really only spend $25 a week or is this simply you sharing knowledge and skills for our benefit?

  • Something that I always do is eat BEFORE I go shopping. I never grocery shop when I am hungry. If I did, I would buy everything in sight.

  • Love this! Super easy for me cos it’s just me and a 4 year old and toddler haha we really just need to buy more fruit often cos they eat so much of it!

  • ur dinnerware and cookware collection is awesome and very high end, but u add too much sodium in your food through these canned processed food, California got a very vegan and organic taste towards food, we r very particular about what we put into our system and make sure it’s free from everything hahaha, adding on I loved the way u deliver ur speech in a brief manner. Graphics r good too, keep it up.

  • LOVE! I also look in the pantry before going to the grocery store but you take it to a WHOLE new level, very inspiring! Also I love your channel <3

  • This is so helpful during this coronavirus dilemma! I have a freezer full of protein, soups, etc. that I need to use up which means less trips/time at the grocery store. Thanks for the great ideas!

  • Brilliant video, so handy, definitely do more of these ❤ Do you know whats in season in terms of fruit and veg? Do you use whats ‘in season’ I think i need to make a seasonal list because i have no idea what is best to eat and when ����������

  • I used to eat at the office cafeteria ALL THE TIME! To their credit, they’ve done a fantastic job catering to my various food sensitivities/allergies, but it was expensive! Now I pack my lunch from my freezer in about 5 minutes and save myself about $150 a month!

  • I have one question is the $ 25.00 dollars for the week in groceries is especific for one meal each day for the entire week? or for the entire 3 meals daily for the entire week..

  • I would like to buy food for my students and just have a pantry in the classroom for when they come tell me they are hungry. Some don’t qualify for free lunch, but don’t bring their own lunch. I would also have to ask if I’m allowed to at least give them snacks!
    Edit: I don’t have 8 kids but I do have 88 students!
