@Shadow Knight Not cooking but on my diet twinkies were life. If you're ever in the gas station and really *really* craving something sweet and absolutely undeniably unhealthy from the dollar run like the cheap pig you are twinkies actually come in with like 260 calories for 2, versus the average 450 calories all the packs of honey buns and swiss rolls bring. On days I was desperate I found a corner store about 1.5 miles away. The walk there and back for the twinkie completely offset the calories the twinkie gave. Plus who wouldn't want to eat twinkies on a diet?

You can get the same result with cashews if you cover them with freshly boiled water and leave them soaking for 30minutes 😁 I use this method while I prep the rest of the meal. No need to preplan 😅

I know this is an old video but I just gotta say I hate that this video sort of perpetuates the idea that meals are “healthy” if they’re super low-calorie. Eating low amounts of calories IS NOT HEALTHY. Calories give you energy and you need them to live. Eating too many calories can be unhealthy for sure but eating really small amounts of calories like 1000 per day is so bad for you and can drain you of your energy. Healthy lifestyle is 100% about activity and getting all of your necessary nutrients. Starving yourself will not make you healthier.

Something I've found that helps is setting up a "protein, veg, carbs" system - i.e, Chicken, Pasta, Sweetcorn or Sausage, Peas and Carrots, Roast potato etc or Chicken, Rice, Salad and so forth

Cashews are known as the natural anti depressants, so cashew cream/milk is a brilliant way to shake up adding them to your diet to boost serotonin. Also, try to reduce carbs, but don't cut them completely (unless you're on a sugar/carbless diabetic diet), as consuming copious amounts of carbs have been found to make depression worse. So substituting regular pasta for lentil pasta is a great way to get some extra protein, and avoid too many carbs.

I will always second the tomato comment, homegrown heirloom tomatoes taste night and day different than store bought... Wasn't a fan of them until I had real ones

Please do a Basics series for Vegetarian and Vegan recipies. Im Pescetarian and you make so many red meat dishes, would love to see some more vegetable dishes.
Inferno Tube
Inferno Tube Month ago
I’m pescatarian myself and I’d just like to say something. So, if you’re following a meatless diet people who eat meat probably aren’t gonna make recipes for you. You need to learn to adapt the recipes by doing basic substitution like Extra firm tofu = chicken Minced meat = meatless mince Chunks of beef = mushroom Obviously, as always, use common sense. Like, you can’t expect putting a mushroom on the barbecue to taste like a rack of ribs
