I’d honestly like to a slightly different content from the usual and since your view number and exposure will be high this week why not try a home cooking On a budget in quarantine tip series using affordable ingredients that go far for people who are disadvantaged at this time like to get them to see this.

Pass it on home edition they have to each get 4 key ingredients and 15mins cook time and cook what the person ahead of them suggests all dishes must b different. Order house number highest to lowest since we are all self isolating across the world.

Pili nuts are pretty great. Never had them covered in cacao - the usual format is more of a brittle. I really want to dump them in cacao now.

And now we’re all on lockdown and my father is in hospital. I’ve literally never dealt with so much pain at one time before. But you guys (and your crew) really help keep me going. Thank you for giving me something to smile about. I hope all of you and your families are safe xxx

One of the most underrated nut, is Pili Nut. It has a crunch then it melts in your mount. Remember this eating when I was a child coated with caramelized Sugar with a hint of salt.

So weird suggestion, while many people are stuck indoors, much better chance to practice cooking. Would you think about have the packs app be free access for a period of time, to get more people into it, and they may see the value proposition being worth it once all of this blows over?

Pili nuts, high in magnesium... rocket butt! Obey serving size.
Prjndigo - 4 dögum síðan
Tea-Pop would be great if it came in a chain of sealed pouches containing "rods" that could be dropped into a water bottle and shaken up. The stick thing just causes 5x more packaging than necessary not including the stick (tho as a single cup serving sure, fine, stick it. most people won't recycle that woodchip tho, overburden for landfills) Reduction in production cost with this change would likely result in each serving coming to 0.40, which is still pricey. Turned into *beads* where you can choose a serving size from 250ml to 750ml the bead cost could be as low as 0.18. A little quick 250ml cup of instant tea would be an excellent option for the product. Imagine little noodle-cup like tea cups as a product?
Prjndigo - 4 dögum síðan
*Brot* isn't superfood once you microwave it. Chemical presence tests based on spectral analysis don't represent the damage that superheating water does to vitamins. Such tests are destructive. Try it with your fav seltzer and a tiny bit of baking powder with plastic wrap over the top of the mug when cooked tho. The "20g of protein" only counts if you have cloven hooves tho. It's got about 7g of human digestible protein.

That's absolutely cute. The kids were definitely the stars of the show. So here's my suggestion. With these lockdown I kow it's difficult for u to get to the studio. So u can focus on making home videos with ur family Recipie that's are cost efficient, simple, comforting and yet delicious. You can record Video with ur spouse, partners or ur parents. We want to see more of your families. It makes it realistic. Also would love if you can share your email if. I have a couple of suggestions for your videos.
Lotsss of Love. Natasha

Ugggh...I have spent an inordinate amount of my time over the last few weeks fielding questions from the general public relating to the various "health products" that have cropped up due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Whenever you see a product that makes any claims relating to improving health or nutrition, just check to see if there's any actual research that's looked for significant effects. A double-blind randomized control trial is best, but those are rare for foods.
If all you can find are endorsements from blogs, or organizations like Natural News, they probably won't offer any benefit...and could even be harmful. There's already been a tragic example of this due to some...exaggerated claims relating to chloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19.

It's promising, but the clinical studies are just beginning. Some have chosen not to wait, and have been instances of people buying algicides containing the drug...and being injured, or in one case killed as a result.

I’d like to see a taste testing show where you take things like different cheeses, and compare them to other comparable cheeses from different areas of the world famous / known for producing that product. Like compare an award winning 5 year old cheddar from England to an award winning 5 year old cheddar from Wisconsin. Stuff like that. You could do it with other stuff like wines, cured meat products, etc..
You could also perhaps take some of the products that technically can only be made in one place / have a “protected designation of origin” and compare them to equivalently priced imitation products from other areas. I’d be interested to see if the protected products are actually better.

For some of these foods can we get the calories? I feel like the way you can get the same benefits of these super foods can be through lower calorie options that you won’t over eat
