Binging with Babish

So you guys mighta noticed that I renamed this episode "Healthier Versions of Unhealthy Foods" - I wanted to make it clearer that these aren't diet foods or things you should necessarily eat every day, they're lower-calorie, lower-carb, higher-fiber versions of unhealthy foods. They're still very high in fat, so there's a trade-off, but they hopefully give you guys ideas of how to scratch the junk-food-itch when you're trying to eat well!

@Abigail A this is incorrect. Carbs are fine, all in moderation. Rice is a great carb source used by athletes amateur and professional worldwide. Cakes and processed carbs are the key problem.

@Timothy Jenkins They also eat tons of seafood rather than red meats, and are way more active/healthier environment. It's not the rice. Plus, in general, they have way less carbs/sugar in their diets than your average Westerner. Rice isn't terrible for you in isolation, but if you're having tons of rice on top of bread, pasta, etc. it's an issue.

@Ryo Except... it is. Rice has way, WAY more carbs which is one of the main things people should be trying to avoid.

@BombaJead Rice is a good basic carb. White rice, how ever, is not that great. In order to "whiten" flour or rice, we remove most of the fiber, minerals and other nutritional benefits from the grain, only leaving a very starch (carb) dense heart of the grain. Wholegrain rice and wheat is still good for you as a part of a balanced diet.
Kardinaalilintu 24 days ago
Low carb, sure, but actually higher in calories. Fat does contain more calories than carbs, so when you add high in fat ingredients, like cheese, oil or butter as an extra, the lower calories in cauliflower vs rice/wheat doesn't matter anymore. It might still be healthier in proper portions, I don't know, but nutrition is a bit more complex than "just cut out this one calory source and you're peachy".

Shouldn't Cauliflower always be steamed/boiled before cooking. They usually have a lot of worms living in them unless you buy them in Florets.

Yeaaaahhhh..... I know you were thinking about that Vitamix this whole episode. 😏
Hi Babish! Your recipes are always awesome, but what I always find time consuming and most tiring is preparing the veggies. It would be awesome to know how you wash and clean your ingredients, e.g. cauliflower (I always find mud and dirt in mine!), broccoli, basil, spinach (spinach leaves KILL me, man). Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and keep smiling!

Yeah, I don't care if it's the Queen of England telling me this. Cauliflower IS NOT a pizza crust! Have never been, will never be. You either choose to eat actual pizza or you abstain. This abomination will disappoint everyone.

in the second one there is no point of making it with cauliflower rice becasuse your still putting ham in which is just as unhealthy if not more unhealthy than rice

The last recipe is literally called cauliflower cheese. Pretty much a British equivalent to Mac and cheese, we're given it at school and stuff :^)

Cheeeseandrice! that’s a laht of cheese. But I’m definitely gonna try the fried rice 🍛
wakeupscreaming 19 days ago
These ingredients are laughable. Your pizza still has cheese (high sodium) and pepperoni (sodium and satur fats). And the fried rice still has a gob of soy/oyster sauce, which is like liquid salt and of course has ham, which has lots of sodium for preserving.

"Cauliflower crust" sure does sound healthier. The fact that it's actually "cheese crust" means that it isn't.

How do you get your cauliflower to dry out? I have had mine on medium heat for an hour and its still like moist sand. Don't have a dehydrator and idk about putting this stuff in a dish towel to wring it out, (not very sanitary and don't want fibers in my food). By the time i was fed up after an hour of trying, there were a bunch of browned bits from my non stick pan all up in the cauliflower too. Please help, really confused what I'm doing wrong

No. Low (white) sugar, white flour, white rice in your carb intake -> healthier.

As a non-american i was very confused with the last recipe called "maggot cheese". It took me a while to realize it is supposed to be Mac & cheese.

minamoon01 Month ago
The pizza is so so good .. I loved it shared it on snapchat and my friends are now making it too .. I recostcumed the topping to fit my preference I like veggie pizza .. so I added some tomato slices, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, black olives, and few pieces of chicken that I grilled with some olive oil, black pepper, and cumin .. no salt added .. I also used shedder with the cauliflower to make the dough it tasted like actual bread .. this pizza is super yummy 😋❤️
You’re like that one mom that makes healthier food so you get mad but the food is still good

I am a bit confused that the 'healthier option' is to drown the food in butter, cheese, and oil. I've seen less cheese in a cheese factory.

I made a cauliflower pizza once. The taste was ok but it was so non-filling I felt hungry, angry and depressed after eating it...
TopChieftain Month ago
Here’s the thing that bothers me about this video, it’s helping people who wanna go on a carb free diet. I will say this once, GOING CARB FREE IS NOT THE ANSWER, we need carbs to survive and to stop eating carbs can be very bad for your heart, so any of u who think it’s a good idea to go carb free, think again because you are removing the thing that your entire body runs off of
Great video, you day man!

So how exactly is a ton of cheese healthier than just carbs in the regular pizza dough?
Kardinaalilintu 24 days ago
It's not... necessarily. Depends on your lifestyle and nutritional needs.
Kardinaalilintu 24 days ago
@NGF excess fat is stored just like excess carbs and proteins are. If you didn't notice... excess is the key word here, eat what you need, don't just blindly drop off one nutrition group.
NGF Month ago
Because carbs turn into sugar in the body which gets stored as fat. Fat from food is just used for energy instead of being stored.
