  1. Nice video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you thought about – Parlandealey Pets Yummy Process (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for discovering healthy recipes for dog food minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my GF finally got excellent results with it.

  2. Seriously? This is what it's come to? Being able to afford to eat healthy now means eating parsley, canned fish and quinoa? (So… weeds, processed fish and sand.) And did you hear the audience hoot and holler that parsley was only 8 cents a serving?! Honestly, anyone who hangs on this quacks words is an utter and complete idiot.

  3. Yeah. but…. buying unhealthy food a $20 bill can feed me for a week. So my opinion still stands. Healthy food is to expensive.

  4. I spend 45 dollars a week and buy healthy food , whole wheat toast , 3 zucchinis , a green pepper, 2 onions , frozen veggies are way cheaper that the fresh ones like mixed veggies , green beans , black eyed bean , a bag from each of the previous ones.. for meat i like chicken breast and tilapia and a buy one of them each week .. bulked whole wheat pasta and some rolled oats and powdered milk for breakfast .. seven apples and seven counts of another fruit that i find is not expensive .. for salad i buy 2 avocados , tomatoes , a bag of mixed green veggies or some cucumber, i choose the cheaper .. and canned stuff i buy tomato paste and tuna when i dont want to buy chicken breast of tilapia.. i dont buy canned chickpeas coz bulked ones are way cheaper .. i buy these from winco foods , for me only . When i want another option I substitute one of the things that i usually buy with it cuz i have a minimum budget , u can buy healthy cheap stuff if u know how to shop , when u find something with a discount price and u us it for a long term buy it , like rice , olive oil , walnuts .. etc , make a meal plan for the week and shop according to it that will really help , i hope i helped some of u here 🌷


  6. "well under $20 " he says……that's because he didnt include all the prices for all the ingredients in the 4 meals !! Even if we had every single ingredient that these 4 meals call for, just buying the 4 ingredients he suggested still brings prices up to about $22.00. Lets hope ppl have powdered peanut butter in their cupboards bc that little thing costs anywhere from $5…..$9 a pop!!!

  7. Wowww.
    Cause people are really gonna share a tin of salmon between three people.
    Having one healthy(ish) thing as part of a meal isn’t health. With this I see virtually no greens this is pure propaganda. I live in the uk and food is much cheaper that the US. I went to the states YEARS ago and was shocked at how expensive fresh produce (not even organic) was.

  8. Muscles are the largest organ in the body making 40% of the mass. Best foods for muscles are prawns, salmon, tuna, chicken breast, turkey breast, ham, all

    high in creatine phosphate, carnosine, BAIBA, and other muscle nutrients.

    Second largest organ is skin- Food for that is pork crackling (pig skin). cook in water for a while or cook in oven or air fryer. Pig skin has 13-26g of collagen per 100g. also hyaluronic acid, ceramide, sphingolipids, and all the same stuff in our skin. collagen supplements are made from cow skin.

    Third largest organ is skeleton- food for that is chicken necks, and chicken feet. They have the same anatomy as our necks/feet so are full of bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, bursa, and all other joint related tissues. And retail bone broth is made from marrow bones (cow femur) and cooked until it dissolves so contains bone, marrow, and the tissue stuck to the end of the bone at the joint- cartilage, tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid.

    For liver- lamb or beef or chicken or any animal liver. Animal liver is the highest food source of vitamins, and minerals on the planet. We store nutrients in our liver so that is why it is so high in nutrients. High in iron, copper, selenium, zinc, b2,b12,b6,b9, and all other vitamins/minerals. a lot of disease is caused by not eating animal liver (anemia, and other vitamins/mineral deficiencies) so can be cured by eating liver each day for a while.

    i eat it raw for maxiumum nutrients because heat destroys some nutrients but can be cooked

    canned smoked cod liver sold on the internet – a lot higher in vitamin D than land dwelling animal liver + has all the other good stuff as land animal liver

    also high in epa/dha

    fish like salmon tuna sardines mackeral herring are high in epa/dha. available fresh or canned.

    super markets or butchers sell organs

    For brains- lamb brain.

    For kidneys- lamb kidneys

    For lungs- lung. high in heperan sulfate (heparin)

    For stomach- tripe (stomach)

    For intestines- intestines sold as sausage casings. high in heperan sulfate (heparin)

    all animal foods are healthy.

    bone marrow stem cells. marrow makes our red, white cells and platelets. butchers sell marrow bones (cow femur) and they cut it up then scoop out the marrow.

    Other foods

    oysters – high in vitamins and minerals particulay high in copper and zinc.

    mussels- new zealand green lipped good for cartilage and joints and all mussels are good.

    hemp seeds- out of all the seeds these are highest in vitamins and minerals also high in ALA an essential fatty acid. high in manganese and magnesium.

    pine nuts and hazel nuts also high in manganese. pumpkin seeds high in magnesium. hazelnuts high in cobalt.

    chia seeds flax seeds vits minerals and ALA

    bakers or brewers yeast- high in all vitamins and minerals and contains almost every single nutrient every discovered. over 16,000 unique nutrients

    have been found in yeast. has been studied extensively.

    sea weed wakama or nori or any other ones- high in vitamins minerals and fucose.

    malt extract- high in vitamins and minerals and tastes good.

    shark cartilage or chicken sternum cartilage or bovine tarchea cartilage – cartilage is high in collagen type 2, calcium, phosphorous, and the highest food source of glycosaminoglycans. tendons connect bone to muscle with fibro cartilage as the intermediate tissue (enthesis) so cartilage is important for

    muscle function.

    pork (ham bacon etc) high in one of the essential fatty acids LA

    water and milk kefir for gut bacteria health. improves digestion and everything else.

    eat some meat raw for probiotics bacteria on it some cooked. when frying cook in butter or lard or tallows not vegetable oil.

    adding lots of sea salt pepper spices on steak adds flavour and nutrients

    ours and animals cell membrane is 30% of our mass and is made of fat protein lipids like cholesterol. plants have a cell wall made of carbohydrates only. they have no cell membrane. cell membrane keeps everything in the cell and controls influx of nutrients in and out. so it is important. only eating animal foods can supply cell membrane and repair our cells so a piece of steak is healthier than any plant food on the planet. eskimoes lived on only animal foods their entire life ( seal whale reindeer fish eating the whole animal every organ) because the environment could not grow plants but no culture in history has ever lived on plants only (vegan / vegetarian) therefore animal foods are healthier than plants. animal food is necessary for health but plant foods are not.

    if someone wants they can only eat animal foods (aka carnivore diet) but there is nothing wrong with some plants if they taste good.

    to make bone broth at home- bone from supermarket/butchers- soup bones ox tails brisket bones- any bones – cook in pressure cooker for 6 hours or slow cooker for 2-3 days until all the meat on the bone dissolves off. can be boiled for a while to reduce the volume then store in fridge get some out each day put in cup or bowl put boiling water on to heat up.

    home made fermented vegetables- buy cabbage some other veges/frutis cut into small bits put in 1-2l container fill with water and crush down food add some sea salt put some water in zip lock bag then sit it on the food in the container to make sure it is fully submerged. put lid on and leave for a few weeks until it goes sour and consume. probiotic food and tastes good.

  9. the soup was $1.50 per portion and to have it twice a day on top of meals? is this $20 a day, I thought it was for the week.

  10. I've eaten 7 cans of Chef Boyardee a day for 7 years and they had to put cinder blocks and jacks under my bed, which I haven't left in 5 years.

  11. Or…create 3 course frugal, healthy meals. Start with a vegetable dip with vegetable sticks or a vegetable soup, or a salad. Use herbs and spices to add nutrition and flavor. Follow with a "filling" main. This should include protein (fish, beans, lentils,nuts, meat, cheese, whatever suits…keep it lean, low in salt etc…made from scratch is always best.), something calcium rich (soy milk, goats cheese, yogurt, whatever suits your needs…keep it low fat, low salt) some examples might be cauliflower rice with spag bol sauce made from fresh ingredients…rich slow cooker meat and veg casserole, stir-fry etc Finish with fruit sorbet. make use naturally sweet fruit…frozen, then blended, then frozen again. (To save money use in season fruit seconds brought in bulk…ripe or slightly overripe works well.)
