I am now beginning a healthy lifestyle bc I want to turn my life around, I am becoming a vegetarian. My question is how do you deal/respond with parents who think you're being disrespectful or unappreciative bc you are denying some of their food and making your own?
That’s something I had to deal with a lot (with my mama). I think it’s important to have a conversation with them about how the foods we eat are linked with our health, and that you are eating this way because you want to live a better quality of life. This may help them see that it’s really not about them, but more about you trying to be a better you. When my mother saw all the positive health changes that came as a result of changing my nutrition, she jumped on board (with no convincing on my part) and now we’re in it together. Hope this helps, and keep the hope alive! xoxo
Hello! I was wondering if you two could help me with this little dilemma I have. A friend of mine from Ohio and I are planning on moving in together for college, and we've agreed I'd be the one to cook. We would be on a pretty small budget. I'm already planning on getting a bunch of coupons during that time, but most of the recipes I know have ingredients that would drain my wallet, so are there any good recipes I could make without spending too much?
Hey there! (and sorry for the late reply) All of the video recipes we make have a price breakdown, and we aim to prep meals with ingredients that are accessible to people with limited resources & funds. Below is a link to the recipe page so you can check it out. Some tips for saving extra coins are to buy in bulk (beans, rice, oils, all other staple foods). If you see a food is going bad, cook and freeze it so you can re-use in the future. Also, if there’s any farmers markets in the area, visit them because they tend to have produce that’s cheaper than the supermarket. Hope this helps! xo
Can you all please create a video about the best food during a woman's period to lessen pain and strengthen the body or at least suggest which foods would be most helpful? Thanks either way!!! Love the site and the information!
Hey there! We created a video a while back on how to alleviate PMS symptoms, that may be helpful. Here’s the link!
Hi! I would like to know if you have some advices for irritable bowel syndrome.. I love all your videos and recipes! Thank you!
Off the top of my head, you should find out what foods exacerbate symptoms, (common foods are dairy, coffee, carbonated drinks, alcohol.) For constipation, you should aim for high-fiber diets and aim for smaller meals (4-5/day).
Probiotics also help create a healthy gut. The one that has been shown to help with IBS specifically is Bifidobacterium infantis. I’d definitely order that strand and take it daily. You can also try the elimination diet to see exactly which foods are causing irritation. For some it is dairy, for some it is wheat. The only way to know is eliminating something for 1-2 weeks at a time and seeing if symptoms resolve.
