  • This is not healthier and almost everything has the same calories as the original, lmao. I thought you were going to substitute the sugar for any other sweetener

  • Eating these kind of dishes won’t fulfill that urge and neither will it taste good so you are better off eating the real thing in small portion.

  • To avoid stroke do not eat Norwegian farmed salmon, find some other source for Omega 3. Norwegian farmed salmon is the most toxic food in the world. It increases the risk for miscarriages, cancer and strokes. https://youtu.be/RYYf8cLUV5E

  • I honestly don’t understand why tasty gets hate…the day you can make such good quality videos and make your food look delicious and get more famous than them then come and judge them

  • 1Turkey Burger 0:07
    2Froyo Cookie Sandwiches 0:55
    3Lighter Raspberry Cheesecake 2:02
    4Cauliflower Pizza 3:12
    5Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos 4:17
    6Strawberry Banana ice cream 5:44
    7Cauliflower “Alfredo” Pasta 6:16
    8Cinnamon Roll 7:25

  • Why does everyone keep saying “I dOnT hAvE tHe InGrEdIeNtS” on every video, no one cares, just go to the supermarket and but it then

  • y’all want a lecture about diets, no? didn’t think so

    don’t have diets, don’t have cheat days. make healthy choices. don’t do crash diets( they are often really bad for you and also participants who did lose weight often gained it back plus more) don’t be too hard on yourself. maybe try to have at least one healthy thing each day. drink enough water. just be happy man idk take the wise words from Ellbat: “u do u boo”

  • The cheesecake looks delicious and the sugar only comes from the dates and blueberries. I might give it a try. Maybe a mug cake version of it.

  • Y’all thought taking your parents credit card was a sin?
    Well, it is… but you wanna know an ever bigger sin?
    Putting whole cherry tomatoes on a pizza, and that pizza dough is also made of dehydrated cauliflower

  • your videos are really excellent. I recently read in superhuman by dave asprey that consuming fats in the ratio that your cell membranes are made of makes sense. Do you think this is reasonable? So it would be 45% saturated, 20% monounsaturated, 35% polyunsaturated. Also to avoid damaged fats like trans fats or oxidized fats in e.g. fried foods.

  • I made #2 for dinner last night and it was great! Awesome and easy recipe! I finished off the chicken in a pan just for a crust but besides that it was perfect!

  • Just because you can’t pronounce/know the meaning of something doesn’t mean its bad! This lady is the kind of person who would look at the words dihydrogen monoxide and scream poison

  • Good ideas but next time some variety in music in a lengthy video would be nice. I wanted to stab my own ears about half way through.

  • Please stop revealing what food you’re making after you’ve made it. In this case, I’d like to know which Take-Out food you’re going to replicate so I can skip past it if it’s not a “favorite” or something I’ll ever desire to eat or remake.

  • My father has dyslipidemia. His blood test result shows that the Triglyceride is up to 1406.6 mg/dl, LDL is 127 mg/dl and HDL 25 mg/dl. He has already taken his prescribed medication that is bezafibrate. Is it the best choice in this case?
    Besides what you mention in this video, I also heard that the olive oil, tea and grapefruit are also can reduce lipid, is it true?

  • With the 2nd one, the chicken and broccoli. Why not cook the broccoli in the gravy? Given they both need to cook at the same time?

  • I’ll be your quality control for the day I guess. If you are going to make a video of a recipe of any sort it would benefit your credibility to follow the recipe. If what’s in the video is indeed the correct version of the beef and broccoli (I didn’t pay attention to the others) then I’d advise you to correct the recipe on your link. I’ve found this to be an issue with more than one recipe in the past which is very frustrating to those of us who actually make them.

  • “vEgtAbLe PoTStiCkErS” it’s fricken vegetable dumplings get it right. Why is everything that isn’t American have to be changed or renamed so that it seems like it’s American. ��

  • Wheat also has sugar search online, use gluten free oats flour, almond flour, millet flour, buckwheat flour etc.. again search online

  • I wish videos were not always accompanied with music that is so loud and nerve racking. The video is very good but the music needs to go!

  • Jewels Every thing you, and Alan and Lynn dooooooooooooooooooooooooo is Simply Marvelous!!!!! And even Stevie Wonder can see that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What an great video! Thank you Julie for laying out all these great healthy heart food suggestions. Super helpful! Keep this great content coming:)

  • 7:41 Xanthan Gum is not a bad/weird ingredient at all! It is a very commonly used ingredient in gluten-free baking, and helps to either bind dough together or thicken sauces. It can be found in most supermarkets near the health-food stuff.

  • Try replacing white flour with almond flour,oat or any other type of flour
    You can also replace white and brown sugar with coconut sugar,agave or maple syrup or just honey
    It’s a lot healthier

  • Can people in the comments just be more appreciative and stop with the ‘it’s not healthy’ bs. Dude they are desserts what do you expect? And no one said it’s healthy, it’s healthiER than the original version of the dessert. Stop criticising and be more appreciative that she spent time developing these recipes.

  • I’m disappointed in some of the comments here. You’ve laid out exactly what your goal was here and have absolutely delivered!
    The chocolate cake is phenomenal and the cheesecake.. ingenious!!
    MUCH healthier alternatives to traditional store bought options. Well done.. Thank you for sharing!! ☺️

  • There are ways u can make dessert without sugar and oil… N then it can be called healthy.
    Yes adding whole wheat flour is good… U can use other flours as well.. N i love my cake without cream frosting… U can just melt chocolate and apply… U don’t need to add tonns of things. And what is there use to use dark chocolate and to add sugar thereafter?

  • Honestly I wouldn’t make this. Just because it’s vegan doesn’t mean it’s healthier and she said 1/3 cup of sugar but put 1 cup of sugar in it???
    My advice would be
    Stop eating snacks, dessert, drinking soda, or other drink with sugar in it
    have one cheat day a week, where you can eat/drink 1 “dessert”
    when you make cake, try making a small cake, like mini cake. And share it with your family, even though it’s so small. + You can decorate the mini cake with a lot of frosting, cause it’s so small it almost doesn’t matter

  • this videos way to long to have the same song on repeat also this is Chinese take-out food, why did they choose a song with Spanish in it? im not sure why this bothered me so much

  • “I want to make a healthier version of a chocolate cake”
    Proceeds to put 200 grams of white sugar on the batter.
    You could’ve used brown sugar or honey or granulated stevia… White sugar is literally poison.
    Also, vegan doesn’t mean healthy, it only means that you didn’t use animal products.

  • When I hear healthy I think low sugar or sugar free, not no eggs…… when did eggs become less healthy than sugar?? I’m sorry (not sorry) but this video angers me.

  • xanam gum isn’t bad it’s used to help bind ingredients and thicken stuff, usually used in gluten free baking, you can buy it at a super market.

  • If you want to use vegan butter for frosting or to just eat, earth balance is vegan and it tastes exactly like regular butter while being healthier. ��

  • Thank you for making healthy versions of my favorite desserts. Please make more such videos. Complements on bringing healthier recipes

  • Good luck with your channel, clearly your supplment vidoes went off the charts (protein powder). So you might stick to that a bit to harvest more followers, I got you in my recommendations b/c of this.
    My suggestion for a video: Which supplments really make sense?
    I am a vegeterian and do lots of fitness, so I feel I have to take a lot.
    I take Vitamin D, Omega3 (the one directly from the algae), zinc+mg combo, vitamin b. And yeah ofc protein powder+creatine (+beta alanine)
    Tbh I haven’t trusted supplements for a long time, but since I started taking them I am way way less sick. So I guess there is something to it..
    tldr; make a video about all kinds of supplements

  • The chocolate cake has a lot of sugar. The “cheesecake”, well, I don’t like it at all but it’s good. The cinnamon rolls doesn’t taste really delicious.

    That’s my opinion.

  • my mom has never made me broccoli. so i don’t know how it tastes. idk if im lucky or not im curious how it tastes and why so many people don’t like it. it looks good to me.

  • Hi. I really love this video. But I have one question. For the cinnamon rolls can you use another substitution for the yeast? Any suggestions

  • Trees are often cut down unsustainably to make almond milk. Also, coconut oil is high in saturated fat and too much of it can cause heart issues. Try and find out where your almond milk is from and limit your coconut oil intake.

    Edit: not being able to pronounce something doesn’t mean it’s bad bananas have hundreds of ‘ingredients’ and many that are hard to pronounce. Vegan doesn’t always mean healthy. Pure sugar is vegan. Not hating just saying that you should do research.

  • Can use stevia, xylitol, natural sugar that are natural sugar alternatives, watch Dr. Eric Berg for more on sugar and stuff, and he also has healthy recipes

  • Coconut oil has more saturated fat than most other options out there! Just because it’s made from coconut does NOT mean it’s healthier!!!

  • These are nowhere close to my favorite fast foods lol. This is like Taco Bell and Chinese food… What about healthy McDonalds? ��

  • For once, one of these “More Healthy Junk Food” Videos actually work! Sure they may not taste as good as the original, but there much better than mixing gross things in like chia seeds, kale, almonds, ect.

  • Why do the cinnamon rolls
    Looks so unrisen? There’s yeast in them. Maybe they did not let rise after cutting and putting in the pan?

  • The cinnamon rolls are really just healthier because they are homemade, the light cream cheese vs normal cream cheese isn’t actually any healthier

  • “I think in this entire thing I only used about a 1/3 cup of sugar”
    The recipe just showed you adding in an entire cup, with the cocoa and the flour…

  • Sugar in the first recipe, honey in the second, bread in the fifth, rice in the sixth, and more sugar in the eighth, these were not healthier!

  • UPDATE: Yesterday the findings of another large randomised trial was released that showed that the protection from Omega 3s may be smaller than previously thought: 25 871 participants (men 50 years or older and women 55 years or older) were randomised to receive either a fish oil capsule (1g of fish oil containing 460mg EPA + 380mg DHA = 840mg total EPA and DHA) or placebo.

    After following the participants for a median of 5.3 years, the risk of heart disease was 8% percent less in the Omega 3 group when compared to the placebo group. However when statistical uncertainty is taken into account, it is possible that there is no benefit at all from Omega 3s.

    This is further evidence that while Omega 3s probably have less benefit than in older studies, there may still be a small benefit. Since there are no harms or side effects from consuming Omega 3s, it is still a good idea to include them in your diet.

  • April 29, 2020. New Zealand allows fast food outlets to trade again. Huge lines of cars seen at all outlets. Proof that junk food is addictive and a root cause of poor heath outcomes in this country. Videos like yours remind us of the importance of choosing better food options. Most fresh veges and fruit cost a lot less than a dose of fast food. Food for thought.

  • I shocked about the fact that this channel’s views and subscribers. You are definitely underrated your perspective and analysis is beyond youtube people.

  • As a Chinese I would like to say the first one is actually dumpling and wonton is different.. and both of them should usually be boiled. We only get those left over dumplings fried…

  • The thing about saturated fats is that I (male, 71 y/o) have been consuming 250g of butter and cream cheese combined every five days. This has been going on for years. But annual blood tests for the last 11 years have not uncovered anything wrong. Are there other people like me?

  • what the point of a cheat day if your gonna do this
    wasting my cheat day

    but there wouldnt be a cheat day if i never started to diet in the first place

  • Hey yall just an important note that not all pronouncable ingredients iare safe, because it’s like saying mercury and arsenic is safe since they are easy to pronounce even though they are poisonous.

  • Just found your channel. Really informative and interesting. I wish there are more healthy and bodybuilding topics in scientific perspective. Keep it up. ����

  • Guys healthy doesn’t mean low fat, using these ingredients is so much better for you than store bought or homemade with 600 cups of butter

  • For those of you who use Margarines, there can be quite a lot of variation in the Trans Fat content depending on the manufacturer. For example, in Australia, Margarine manufacturers have voluntarily reduced trans fat levels to earn the Heart Foundation Tick. As a result, margarines in Australia tend to have less Trans Fat than butter.

    So if you do use margarines, check the label to see how much Trans Fat is in the one that you use.
