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!

@Michael DePew Now logically if you are a snob, there are cheeses that have low carb. But categorically you arent going to use them in most melted cheese dishes or find them at walmart or kroger's. Nothing unhealthy about any food. But if you eat a melted cheese dish over a dish that wont taste as good with stuff that's melted why bother. So you gotta be aware that to taste good you might to limit something that tastes amazing to special occasions where you can prepare it to perfection. Even going out to eat sometimes. If your eating lots of melty cheeses they dont have the same benefit of say hard goat cheese or for that matter tofu and then comparing tofu to eggs. And there still is the issue of saturated fat, and maintaining healthy cholesterol balance. I would rather have a decent cauliflower mac and cheese with fontina and bojack, once a week. then have steamed brocolli dusted with parmesan and nutritional yeast every day. But having knowledge about nutritional makes me plain things out better make the smart move to make the most out of life. Heck there are some days you may need a sweet potato with parmesan sprinkles for some reason, like you wanna train for a marathon or you get lactose intolerant all of a sudden or meet your soulmate and they eat paleo. You have to have all the facts.

Unhealthy to me is sugar. I eat high fat foods and am relatively fit. Just cook at home and eat responsible portions and anything is healthy in my opinion. Edit: just realized like 50 people already commented something similar. Hi.

As a diabetic, I'm looking mostly at the fried "rice" recipe. Took two stabs at making it, and I think I've got it down pretty well. I leave the meat out (flexitarian here) and toss in some frozen corn and peas to add a little more bulk. Two meals from each head of cauliflower, and it clocks in around 30g of carbs per meal (as an idea, that's less than two slices of regular bread). The other two are just a little fat-heavy for my tastes. I don't mind a little cheese, but it really shouldn't form the majority of the caloric intake from a meal >.>

Why would one want easy to digest foods while on a diet? Make that shit near impossible to digest instead, and then you can eat all you like and not gain the unnecessary calories.

How the fuck is rice bad for you

The funny thing is, you can eat healthy by just eliminating sugar from your diet. You can even still eat carbs, just more complex carbs that take longer for your body to break down. Keto is definitely the quickest way to lose it, but it’s also fairly dangerous if you over do it.

Nix the vegetable oil for something less processed like Sesame Oil and you're pretty golden for a faux rice stir fry that ain't too unhealthy and ain't too bad.

I don't understand the hatred Americans have for carbs. Call me crazy but I think the unhealthy thing about pizza is the cheese, not the dough that is literally primarily made out of flour, yeast and water

I swear to god every healthy meal uses cauliflower. Whats with you people and that disgusting albino broccoli? Like maybe it's just me but cauliflower is absolutely disgusting. I love broccoli but something about cauliflower just doesn't do it for me.

Carbs are fine. They are still necessary even if you want to have low body fat percentage. It's a good source of energy.

Hmmm, since when rice is unhealthy? Americans are literally the only people that don't eat it and they're the one known for being obese.

I was super excited about this Mac and cheese, but for whatever reason my sauce ended up *super* liquid and I ended up with more cauliflower-cheddar soup than a Mac and cheese. I’m deeply curious where I went wrong....

So.... instead of bread we add a bunch of cheese to the "pizza crust" how is that healthier exactly? lol ;P
