  • Hi i havent been using anything in my pregency i found put i was pregnant at 4 months and now im 5 months im not sure what to be using

  • I used to love Sorelle (because of her Advanced Selfies), but was finding myself drifting away from her content more and more towards the end of last year. Then when I started hearing her talking about food, that was finally it for me, and I completely unfollowed/unsubscribed. Her eating is so restrictive, and it bothered me how she (like other people have already mentioned here) stated all her beliefs as if they were factual.

  • Loved this video just as so many others of you that helped me personally a lot! Thanks for your educational videos on nutrition. I don’t know if it would be a possibility to do a video about this, but a family member of mine reads a lot about how we don’t get enough nutritions and vitamins because of long storage time, monoculture farming etc etc and therefore wants to detox and take additional supplements for EVERYTHING. I suspect bullshit behind those books and takes and I’m interested if there’s any way to prove that there’s not a giant loss in vitamins and nutrition when we shop our groceries at the supermarket instead of harvesting them directly from a field.

  • I’m really confused she demonizes carbs etc but she eats rice cakes? Which are made from carbs. I really don’t get her she contradicts herself at every turn…

  • Tap water in iceland is one of the cleanest in the world and there is no need for water filters here:) aaand if you gobto uceland and buy bottled water you are badically buying tap water in a bottle ��

  • I mean yeah it’s bad to eat fruits n veg that are imported bc it’s bad for the environment… but if you’re doing it bc it’s “bad” for you, there’s something going on for sure

  • It must be so exhausting keeping track of all these rules, I need a nap after just listening! I remember being so consumed by food and worried about this shit…Do yourself a favor girl and RELAX!!!

  • Hi Abbey. I have been following you and Annie for a while, glad that you did this video. I would love,to hear your ” how much protein we need per day video”. Thank you in advance:)

  • yeah no the argument that we haven’t been eating grains for long is just incorrect and I hope ive just misunderstood her. archaeologists have found grindstones from more than 30,000 years ago in western New South Wales, Australia, that were used for grinding local millet and grass seeds etc.

  • Thank you very much for this video! How about daily multivitamins for woman in over 30s? I dont take vitamins at all and when I do I’m inconsistent. What brand do you recomand taking aside from prenatal?

  • Random comment but the quarantine allowing me to literally eat whatever I want for 6 months guilt free makes me not wanna eat calorie dense foods so much and I fell in love with onions so hello sauté pan

  • Also alkalizing literally means chemically basic. Lemon juice is an acid. Put them together, they cancel each other out and you get… water with random minerals in it.

  • How come you always suggest meat as a garnish? And to eat protein from more plant based sources? I feel better getting my protein from meat vs plants. I feel like this is a diet culture agenda from vegans that is being pushed…? Thank you Kindly, Erica

  • For those moments when you aren’t sure if these are helpful to anyone, I just want to say…I think they do. I’ve been watching these over the past several months when I can feel my ED behaviors coming on and I haven’t engaged in them like I did before. I’m finally getting back to a place where I can see food for what it is: nourishing. Not evil. Just nourishing. I’ve discovered a love for baking and preparing food for myself and others-something a version of myself from a year ago wouldn’t have been able to do. Whatever you decide to do with your presense online, I just wanted to say you’ve helped <3

  • I’m somewhat shocked you didn’t adress the HUGE amount of brazilnuts she added to her dessert. As I am a vegan I did a little bit of research on brazilnuts as they are a really good source of Selenium, which I am often lacking. But every single source I found, mentioned to be careful with it, because large amounts of selenium could be quite harmful with a whole list of symptoms related to selenium toxicity. What my research told me 1 brazilnut per day is plenty for your daily needs and she had a whopping 9-10 nuts in 1 serving!!!! Especially since her ‘green’ concoction in the morning already had selenium in this, I think this may be quite harmful, or am I wrong?

  • I love how much research Abbey does on every subject she touches. It’s so rare to find such accurate health information on YouTube

  • Pls make a protein video���� literally love you Abbey! If someone starts talking in toxic diet culture language I send them links to your videos!!

  • Great video but you may want to do some further research on the details about GMO’s. They actually have not delivered on the promise of higher crop yields.

  • I guess I’m a bit confused sometimes with our world and nutrition these days because we truly have started adding more toxins into our food and water systems… I don’t think we can say that doesn’t have any impact on us especially when we add it all up. Many studies take one sample instead of considering we are getting small doses all day everyday which add up into much larger doses overall…. maybe that’s just my personal opinion.
    Would absolutely LOVE a video or series about organic foods! Interesting hearing about the GMO research. I always feel super sick (either bad stomach ache for days or headaches) after eating GMO foods and have to consciously be aware buy non-GMO.

  • Hi Abbey please do a video on “how much protein you actually need”. I’ve been watching your videos concurrently with a nutrition course at uni. I love them. I love your knowledge-based point of view:)

  • While I do agree that this video is very triggering, having been a follower of hers for a while, I want to point out that in many of her videos she talks in a much healthier way about food. I have heard her mention cutting our certain things (like grains) because she just didn’t like how it made her body feel. I wish this video had had more of an experience perspective vs the fear one she went with.

  • Veganism doesn’t make you loose weight.
    I’ve been overweight as a vegan as well as underweight. You need to find your balance.
    Veganism is an ethical principle not a certain type of diet. You can be incredibly unhealthy and also highly overweight as a vegan even if you eat the healthy stuff if it’s too much of it.

  • I haven’t seen your vids for months cause the YouTube algorithm sucks but CONGRATS! ��❤️

    Also she’s not helping our already problematic society that suffers of ED’s. As someone who suffers of an ED, we need to stop with this toxic narrative that 99% of food is BAD and having a ridiculous list of foods that we’re not allowed to eat. Health should be the goal here.

    Love from somewhere else in Canada hehe ����

  • Please please do a review on a channel called “Goatis”
    My lord that guy and his gf are HATEFUL
    I feel they are spreading a lot of hurtful information, and have gone as far as calling veganism a “mental disorder.” He seems to have an audience that just spews incorrect information and have gone as far as saying dieticians/nutritionist are just sheep and pretty much peddle propaganda the government wants them to. Like…what??? I believe in a diet that works for the individual, but the things they say are incorrect and I believe based on opinions more than facts.

  • I get what she MEANT to say. Because she lives in Iceland the amount of fruit in her diet should be less than someone living in say, Thailand, because less types and variations of fruits grow there. However, she comes across as crazy by saying you CAN’T or SHOULDN’T eat fruits based on where you live. Like… just because I live in Thailand does that mean my body has evolved to be able to eat more fruit? NO! That’s what it sounded like she was saying. Her rules are just crazy. She has some insanely strict eating habits. Not to imply anything about her… but her crazy rules do sound a lot like the girls claiming that eating only an apple a day, with water and nothing else is healthy

  • I’m so glad that you give us the option to consume such misinformed content from an informed and educational perspective. As an easily influenced teen, I would’ve been blown away by the stuff Sorelle believes in, and maybe would’ve believed some parts of it as truth. So thank you, Abbey, I hope many can watch your content instead of some of the bullshit out there.

  • I used to watch Sorelle and really look up to her and even envy her lifestyle. Eventually I started getting these icky vibes from her so I stopped following. Glad you covered this!

  • Please do a video of Linda sun!! She’s 19, so she’s young. She’s blown up lately going from 10k to 250k in like 2 months. And I think she’s amazing but I’d love your input!!!

  • Hey Abby, your audio was much quieter than Sorelle’s. It would be great if you could balance the sound in future videos so I don’t get a mini heart attack every time Sorelle talks lo

  • Yes it was really hard for me to find a prenatal viatmins because what the doctor prescribed me hurted my stomach so I just did some research online and I found a prenatal called Nutrition Now Prenatal Gummy Vitamins and they are really easy on my stomach and have the right of folic acid which is 800mcg and they taste pretty good!

  • I agree with many of the insights Abbey,

    However I don’t think it’s fair to throw around words like “orthorexia”, especially when someone is just sharing what they are eating or ideal diet is, or they would like to be on, in one short video. I have alot of foods that I don’t eat due to how they affect my body/mind and if it’s this easy to call someone orthorexic it makes me wonder if I am orthorexic? For that matter we can pretty much call anyone on youtube sharing their diet and lifestyle orthorexic for avoiding certain foods.

    Orthorexia is thrown around way too often, and I don’t agree at all with how you are using it here.

    I don’t agreee%100 with Sorelle’s diet as it seems too restrictive for most people’s lives in the US at least, And also c’mon “poison this poison that” not everything is poison! that word is just not really used correctly here, however I did find things I did agree with and again she’s just sharing her lifestyle, which is very unique compared to most peoples. I feel the same with your video I don’t feel confident to really trust your advice or breakdown of the video, but I enjoy the content and thanks for sharing your insights food for thought lol.

  • Annie is one of my favorite youtubers for many reasons, so I watch must of her videos. She did mention the shift back to eating more animal based proteins because she was seeing a change in her body and skin. She looked back to see what she had been eating before when she was happy with her self, thus the shift. Unless you’ve seen more of her videos, you would see that she does eat lentils sweet potatoes and beans quinoa, rice etc. I try a lot of her recipes and I have to say that they taste really good. She has motivated me to eat healthier and cleaner. Also, she’s never claimed to be vegan.

  • sorelle “acknowledging her privilege” to buy organic is the equivalent of a backhanded compliment because she attaches it with saying she can buy organic “with the money she works hard for.” this is essentially making the argument that if people worked hard they would also have the privilege of buying organic. this just is a terribly flawed rhetoric. I am a college student who works hard to pay for 100% of my college via a job while maintaining a 4.0 GPA in my honors program. While I have money, I would be sacrificing my education or living space or luxuries (ie phone, internet) to pay 2-3x as much for an organic version. And that’s me, a middle class american with access! imagine all of the people in less opportune circumstances or locations. I’m just so tired of the equal opportunity fallacy.

  • I would love to see you do a video on the horrible claims and diet culture surrounding many multi-level marketing companies. They essentially monetize orthorexia. Argonne (30 days to healthy living), itworks, Herbalife, beachbody. Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I have seen many amazing videos that deal with the shady business practices but I’d like to see a video by a professional on the diet claims they make to shill their crap.

  • I can see how Annie’s videos could be a little triggering for some people but I think they are really fun to watch and inspire me to get more veggies and fiber in my diet!

  • The crossover I never knew I needed!!! I started following her 4 years ago when I lived in Iceland but Jesus Christ she’s gotten very…. outspoken… as her platform has grown

  • I actually unfollowed her after she posted her videos about her diet. I thought the rules contradicted each other and she was talking about subjects she’s clearly not qualified to preach about.

  • I really worry about how people accumulate this much misinformation about something (in this case food), believe it, and then feel the need to spread this incorrect info to a large audience… At least we have amazing people like Abbey who actually do the research and debunk this nonsense and also manages to find the positives along the way��

    oh and btw WOW was that ‘poison’ talk some of the weirdest pseudoscience ranting I’ve heard in a while

  • so interesting how people manage to promote products in videos about subjects that have nothing to do with the product lol. Guess I have some things to learn about YouTube

  • Yes please to a video on how much protein we need! There’s so much conflicting advice out there, particularly in the sports world. I run a fair bit and lift weights twice a week and my a trainer at the gym told me I needed 1g per 1lb of body weight but, unless I down a bunch of protein shakes (which I don’t really want to do), I’m never going to hit that every day. If I try really hard and focus on protein, I can hit 100g but it doesn’t feel particularly intuitive. Yet I do worry that what I actually get (around 60-80g a day at a guess) isn’t enough to support muscle growth and repair.

  • Abbey I would love to see videos on organics if that is something you would be interested in talking about. It’s such a complex topic and reliable information is quite hard sort out there is a lot of misinformation and debate is very polarising.

  • Would love to see a review of Ashy Bines’ WIEIAD videos. She is an Aussie YouTube, fitness coach and does plenty of these videos ��. Congratulations on your baby boy and hoping your entire family are doing well ��

  • Thank you! These are so helpful:) Would you consider doing a review of Sydney Cummings? She is gaining a lot of popularity in the fitness realm here on YouTube. Thank you!

  • God, she’s self righteous for someone who’s food beliefs are just wrong most of the time. The way she talks is insanely condescending and comes from a place of ill-informed privilege

  • Hi Abbey. I look forward to your video on organic/conventional/GMO foods. I noted you offered your insights from a nutritional and environmental lens. I’m in the food sciences and I find it disheartening that these conversations within the field don’t meaningfully consider the social commitment lens. Especially as it pertains to non-industrialized nations’ native biodiversity (the loss of which affects small scale farmers’ livelihoods)..As well as the aggressive lobbying of governments of non-industrialized nations (NINs) to introduce GMO products in their markets and even remove liability clauses (and the neocolonial implications this has). All in all, the whole of the GMO endeavour in relation to NINs feels top down, exploitative, saviour-like, paternalistic. I firmly believe what people eat is political. I hope to see the world of dietetics expand into that conversation. (maybe it has and I just don’t know ����‍♀️)

  • You don’t want folic acid. You want FOLATE. It’s natural and can be processed by your body more readily than folic acid. Some women can’t even process folic acid! This video is substandard.

  • I have followed Annie for the past 10 years and she swings between very restrictive and very healthy eating. I find that she probably reads something new and then goes with it for a few months and then changes to the next “clean” trends. She has an obsession with perfection and anti ageing. She even said in a video that she tries not to make “silly” faces so she doesn’t get wrinkles �� She is unrelatable because she presents everything way too perfect and I actually find her life quite boring because of this. There’s no sense of adventure

  • I’m so happy I’ve found your channel! I’d love to hear you thoughts on two influencers “what I eat in a day” of model Valeria Lipovetsky and intermatent fasting dietician Autumn Bates. Thank you

  • Abbey can you address the newer research that shows Spirulina is a neurotoxin? Dr Gregger used to recommend it but actually changed his recommendation because he was alarmed by new research showing it can be dangerous even in smaller amounts.

  • What concerned me more was how expensive all those supplements are. Where i live, these stuff costs like 20$ each. Paying that much just to get my daily vitamin c when i can just buy an orange and tomato and thats enough skdjadkf

  • I had a lot of orthorexic tendencies in my teen years and if I had heard her video then, it either would’ve sent me into a spiral of anxiety, obsession and fear or I would’ve given up completely.

  • Thank you so much for this! �� And congratulations on the baby! �� I always saw her as my role model when it came to food. I also bought the book “Fit For Life” because she recommended it ��

  • I read that high B-12 levels in mothers have been linked to autism. Megafood’s Baby and Me Powder has over 700% of the daily value for B-12. Does this mean this may be a bad prenatal vitamin? I believe the pill form has much less B-12 though.

  • I watched one of her photography videos and really enjoyed it, and quickly realized that was her only palatable video. Every video I liked her less and less and some of the things she said made me really uncomfortable.

  • As an anthropology student, I cannot stand when people talk about what our bodies are “adapted”’to eat or what is “natural”. For example, when she said we shouldn’t eat grains because we haven’t been eating them as long as other foodswhy does that matter? Why does time influence our ability to digest foods? If grains had no value to our health, we wouldn’t have eaten them. End of story. And limiting fruit? Our ancestors, as she loved to talk about, were frugivores. Our early ancestors’ access to high value foods, such as nuts and seeds, as well as fruits, plays a large role in increased health and increased brain size. I could go on….but point is, unless you study nutrition or anthropology (with a focus on human evolution), you probably don’t have a clue what is or isn’t natural to eat.

  • It’s so weird to see influencers that you used to watch come out as feeding into conspiracy theories. First Sorelle with this “clean eating” bs and then Shamelessmaya interviewing and supporting an anti-vax “doctor”. We truly don’t know influencers as much as we think we do…

  • Abbey I would love for you to review Linda Sun because I think her take on food is amazing and something you would like! She’s big on intuitive eating.

  • Really though Abbey and Annie are around the same age and Annie looks sooo much younger by at least 8-9 years so she is doing something right. ��

  • Thanks for sharing information about the prenatal vitamins. The mega foods baby & me is expensive and received 2 pills daily for qualifying serving but seems to be the go to vitamin. Hope to see more educational videos

  • Can someone please recommend me “What I eat in a day” type videos that are more traditional, meaning from before the smoothie, oatmeal, seeds, only vegetables and salads as a whole meal, etc., very clean diet era? Ones that include bread, soups and second courses, actual sweets, etc.? So far, I know only Anna Saccone who could fit this style, and I would like to find more. Thank you in advance!

  • Biotin does mess with thyroid tests, I have hypothyroidism and I can’t take biotin or the results are not viable and I cannot adjust my medications as they are normally adjusted at least 2-3 times a year in my situation.

  • I’m currently taking human nutrition as part of my nursing pre requisites and watching these videos seriously helps me understand my textbook even more ❤

  • I watch this with a lot of feelings. I was on that path as well and would have ended up like that If I wasn’t «saved» bij people like you, Abby. Your channel and the intuitive eating books you recommended made all the difference. Life and eating is so much more fun without the restrictions. Thanks for making youri insights available to us

  • Plant-based diets may reduce the risk of TYPE-2 diabetes, but it will not do anything to prevent type-1 diabetes. I’ve watched your videos religiously and used to consider myself a big fan, but it is incredibly frustrating that despite mentioning the importance to those of us with type-1 of making this distinction, it seems as though every time type-2 is mentioned, it is just referred to as diabetes without mentioning that type-2 is the only type that has dietary/lifestyle risk factors.

  • I used to watch her a lot and follow her Instagram but unfollowed her a few years ago. She always posted the most beautiful content and used to have a lot of content about being happy within yourself, so I’m really sad to see this. I hope whatever she does makes her happy

  • What a disappointing video. You clearly said be nice in the comments and all you have done is judge Annie because she eats a lot of vegetables that most people do not eat enough of. I would recommend going over to nutrition and informing yourself about the leading causes of death. DR MICHAEL GREGER actually has some facts about food and nutrition.

  • She said not to use olive oil?? Yet the Mediterranean Diet has been modeled throughout the world as incredible? Also that water filter is RIDICULOUSLY expensive and those Nordic countries (in addition to the UK) are renowned for their beautiful and clean water. Ladyyyyyyy.

  • Wowzerz is all I can say!! Oh and I LOVE cashews & rarely go a day without eating them. Great video, backed up by solid facts as usual. ����

  • as a nutritionist myself, her eating behavior also reminds me a lot of clients struggling with Orthorexia combined with obsessive–compulsive disorder ore generally speaking. Really hope it’s not the case, since I do like her, she seems to be a beautiful and good hearted person, but I do think it got a bit out of control lately… I could imagine her big need for detoxing could come from binge eating days she might have. Since she is open about wanting to start a family soon, it could help her shift the focus <3

  • Alot of us have to use water filter jugs in my city as the water is chalky that it destroys the inside of my kettle. One of my relatives kept getting kidney stones. He was told to move house from doctors and the water company in the end to an area with softer water.

  • Hi Abbey, can you do a what I eat in a day video? I am 2 months post partum and I am gaining weight back! I am exclusively breastfeeding and have a huge appetite! I need help with what I should eat in a day to lose the weight, and be healthy!

  • I used to love Sorelle when I was extremely orthorexic & I used to love her content. I continued to follow her Instagram for the “advanced selfie” stuff even after I got better from my disordered eating (through therapy), but I had to recently unfollow her. I had a big problem with her still promoting water fasting in 2020 when we’ve seen how bad it has gone for youtubers in the past & I said as much in a Instagram comment on a post of her promoting it. The final straw for me was when people were asking why she never commented on the black lives matter movement with her huge, mostly American, platform. At first I gave her the benefit of the doubt that she wasn’t American, until she posted a really, honestly self absorbed, story of her hysterically crying and yelling how she is “such an extreme empath” who “can’t save the world”. It was just weird and I decided it was time to just unfollow. I hope that her step back from social media and it’s pressures gives her some much needed time for reflection on how she chooses to use her platform, and also time to heal from any mental or disordered eating issues.

  • I’m convinced I screwed up my thyroid with eating too much vitamin K. I grew my own greens and made a dense green smoothie and choked it down everyday for two years. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

  • I’m sure I’m not your channel’s demographic being a guy in my forties, but I really appreciate this channel. Your content helps inspire me to make changes where I’m at and consider my diet from a health (mental and physical) perspective. Also, it really helps that the videos (whether they be reviews of other channels, vlogs, recipes) make me understand that I’m not a bad person for eating things that I like but at the same time I can consider ways of adding nutrition and balance to my diet. So I just wanted to say thank you to balance out all that negative from being a public figure!

  • I still think comparing to others she is one of the best inspirations and she always focuses on staying healthy than that starving yourself.

  • Have you heard Vandana Shiva speak about GMOs and food? Highly recommend. Also, if you go to reputable farmers markets they make sure their stall holders are farmers! Ask questions!

  • OMG I love the pro-science approach to organic and GMO that you have, it’s really a breath of fresh air. Thank you so much for voicing this on your platform!

  • Dear Abbey
    There is just something very comforting about those big bowls.
    All trainers and fitness related influencers advising their followers/clients to go full on veggies and eat carbs as low as possible, same with fish/meat. It’s still hard for me to make a small bowl, so for my emotional health I’m making a big bowl of salad as a side of the main carbs+protein meal. Sometimes that salad lasts for two meal, so it’s really simply comforting thing for people who struggle with ED.
    For me personally it would be stressful to see a small plate of food in front of me. I won’t feel satisfied and will be pretty hungry very soon.

  • Since the beginning of the pandemic I struggle with trying to eat overly healthy I believe it’s because it’s something I can control, whereas the rest of 2020 feels very overwhelming.. So I am kind of drawn to those restrictive diets and claims. It helps immensely to hear your take, not only ‘correcting’ wrong info but also reminding me/us that food is not only a source of nutrients but joy and fun. Thanks a lot for this!:)

  • it blows my mind that influencers blatantly give out dangerous dietary advice without being qualified or even having studies/research to support the fallaciesi mean “opinions”

  • Annie was never a Vegan she is mostly following a plant based diet ( it helped her clear her skin she used to suffer with really bad acne ) but recently aded more animal protein compared to before following what her body wanted.

  • The argument about our bodies supposedly not being ‘adapted’ for certain types is incredibly irritating and, quite frankly, total bs. I’m an anthropologist and one of my college courses was centered wholly around the human diet and how it has evolved, how we limit it, and nonsense claims about it (particularly the so-called ‘Paleo Diet’). There is absolutely no reason to attempt to eat like our prehistoric ancestors did for so many reasons-major ones are that a) we don’t really know what they ate (plus, food varied tremendously based on things like local/seasonal available and timeframe), and b) literally all of the food we have access to today would be unrecognizable to prehistoric hominins because it’s evolved and been altered by people over hundreds (and in some cases thousands) of years. Major yikes that she implied that we shouldn’t eat grains because we’re not ‘ready’ for them.

  • To echo what everyone else has said… her videos are very triggering. I used to watch her years ago asking myself why I couldn’t eat as many raw, oil-free veggies as her?! She is one of the few youtubers I watch and feel so much guilt towards myself, not eating “clean” enough. Luckily, I’m in a healthy state now and enjoy COOKING my food. She seems like such a great, kind and positive person; and this ‘perfection’ that she displays IMO adds to the amount of guilt a lot of girls feel when watching her.

  • Have you ever done a video on how to deal with excess bloating/pain through menstrual cycle, what foods/drinks should be avoided? and what healthy things would you encourage?

  • I’ve been following Annie for many years now and her channel is actually like an elegant, classy and healthy oasis. She’s genuinely such a good person and truly the sweetest soul ever! As far as her eating habits, I guess different things work for different people. Personally, I have been overweight before and Annie’s food/lifestyle/advice videos were extremely helpful to me. �� xo ❤️

  • Would love to see a new video about Greg with Abbey’s new standards and disclaimers she now suddenly has since doing that first disaster of a video about Greg.

  • I used to eat portions like that (big bowls of veg or whatever) but now just looking at these massive meals makes me sick.
    I got accustomed to eat many small meals throughout the day.

  • This is the only time I can’t stand the “influencer” and had to skip everytime you show her clips. Her demeanor (in this specific video, at least) reeks so much privilege and ignorance (not to mention the amount of misinformations and her preachy attitude), argh I can’t stand her! Props to you for having patience as big as the Himalayas to watch, dissect, and analyse her video!

  • HOLY SHIT ABBEY I didnt´t know ur vagus nerve controls hunger and fullness. Íve had POTS for 7 years and i swear I’ve learned more from you in quarantine than i have the past 6 years.

  • Please do a video on how much protein to eat! Also, as a plant based eater, i have difficulty thinking of creative ways to get my protein. I get sick of tempeh and tofu every day. If you could add in suggestions that would be great!

  • i can never understand people cooking without oil. especially the ones that are really good for you. it sounds to me that she has some phobias with food. she also could’ve had a veggie omelette or something instead of that drink,,,real food is much better than these powders.

  • Damn you really spilled the tea here on the organic. Thank you.

    Also: what about fish? I’ve been wanting to eat more salmon and sardines for omega 3s, but I’m unsure if frozen, non organic is safe and if it has to be wild caught and all of that.

  • I don’t know how people can eat so many cold meals. They’re not satisfying to me. I like meals that are toasty and hearty. I bought all these “healthy” foods to make smoothies with like quinoa, seeds, fruit and protein powder, but I ended up hating smoothies because they’re so cold and I prefer my food in solid form. Blending the fruit just ruins it for me. Also I hate quinoa and all nuts and seeds. I thought the smoothie would mask them but it didn’t really ��
