    • Hey you can make your own Greek yogurt. First time making you will need plan yogurt like a cup 1to2 table spoons. Boil a gallon of 2&orrReg milk let cool down then and 1to 2table spoon of plan yogurt then cover top and sides in Winter just top in summer. If make it evening or late evening cover all light then it’s made in morning. If make in morning then it should be done by evening dinner time. That’s it done and what ever you want to it like protein powder or some brown sugar or flaxseed. Or just eat plane.

    • Thanks for the great recipe Matab! I avoid dairy products mostly these days, but I bet I could make it with some non-dairy base! <3

    • YAY Charlene, yummy! I just found these the other day, didn’t even know they had them! <3

  1. Great video, Cheri! Love how you explain that it doesn’t have to be a certain way, use what you can get or what you have. I need to start using my mandolin! BTW – how long did it take your daughter to empty the diaper box!?! LOL So cute : )

    • Yayyyy Terry my dear!!! I’m glad that you loved this one, and yes, use that mandolin!! Loving your videos too, keep it up!!!! (On a good day, it takes her 3.4 seconds to empty it.;) HAHAHAHAH

  2. How much raw beans do you usually add for a pot of vegetable soup like this or maybe a bean based soup?

    • Hi Janis! Well, it can vary. In this recipe I put 1 cup dry. But really it could use more. I love to have like 1/2 cup per serving if possible. <3

    • Thanks Cheri, that’s what I was thinking, that I would add more beans to make it more of a meal type soup. I hope you know that these little tips like blending at the end to “finish” or blending cashews into it to make it more creamy and yummy make such a difference. Those are smart ideas that we wouldn’t know ourselves and really make the soups and dishes go to a different level. It’s all in the purchasing and prep being doable and you really help with that part. Being so real and all of the good ideas that you come up with really make it more fun and give people confidence to try new things and keep going on this lifestyle journey. Thank you again Cheri, you rock!!!

    • JANIS!!! Thank you so much for sharing this with me, I’m so glad to hear that I’m hitting the mark on this type of stuff. I think these types of details are what helps keep people on and knowing how to make things taste how they want, so I’m so glad that you’ve gotten that out of it. Sending LOVE!!!! <3 🙂

  3. I have my weekend meal prep down to a science. I do plan and make my main meal dishes so I have food ready when I get home from work. My lunchtime or dinner salads I make when I am going to eat them. I made an Instant Pot Minestrone soup last week that was awesome. This weeks soup was Dr. Fuhrman red lentil soup from the quick and easy cookbook.

    • Vickie, THANK YOU for sharing what works for you — we could all learn from that laser focused prep. It’s not even a ton of work, is it? It just takes a little extra effort to keep it going. I swear I should follow recipes more, but I go on and off doing that. I usually start following recipes when I find myself slipping into laziness like “oh i dont want to eat ANYTHING i have in my fridge” lol. <3

  4. Ohhh aj ja, this means so much to me that you have been watching and that you took a moment to comment. It means so much! You have no idea how glad I am to hear this video cleared some major things up for you. Ya know, I swear, every time I publish a video, right before I have this huge moment of terror like no one is going to like this one, it’s going to be terrible. I almost scrap EVERY single video I publish, because I just swear no one will like it. But then I take a deep breath and just keep going. It means so much to hear that you really got a lot out of it. Can you tell me a bit more about what was hard for you before you saw this video? When you say you were making it too hard, what specifically seemed hard for you? I think it will help me a lot to know what you found difficult so I can make more content to help others like you in the future. I will do more of these, I plan on at least once a month, I’m thinking. This lifestyle will help the diabetes out tremendously, I promise you that. Just keep going and stick to it, no matter how much you revert or fall off. Just keep coming back!! I cannot wait to hear your results and how things go for you: will be looking out to hear back!! Thanks again for this comment and for watching. Sending love and endless encouragement!!! <3 <3

  5. Bobbie, my friend, thanks for watching!! Haha, they are pretty darn good meals that’s for sure. <3 <3

  6. Hey Karen!!! Yes on the sneaking in greens thing..ahhahaha…yes kids, here, have some ice cream. MWAHAHAH!!!! I know the nerves with the pressure cooker, it took me like a YEAR to use mine lol. Tell me what you think of the soup you make. I gotta know. And then tell me how much you regret WAITING to get a pressure cooker for so long! 😀 And yes, the diaper thing made me laugh every time I watched it while editing hahhaa. SO worthwhile. <3 <3 <3

  7. Would you recommend reading Eat to Live over The End of Dieting? Or do they both cover the same thing?

    • Great question. Every book he has covers basically the same exact thing, just from a different perspective. If you’re coming from a weight-loss perspective, either of those are great, but I think End of Dieting is a bit easier read. If you’re coming from heart disease or diabetes, etc, def start with one of those. <3

    • +The Watering Mouth thanks!!! I am in weight loss mode. I have researched the nutritarians way and I love it. I just didn’t know what book I should read because I saw both. Thanks!!!

    • +The Watering Mouth your videos have helped A LOT! I have about 80-90 pounds to Lose. I want to do this lifestyle, but it’s so hard to know where to start and what to eat. I’m not one who can just “wing it”. I have to have a plan to follow and I’m kind of lost lol. Thank you for all your help!

  8. You are amazing. Thanks for taking the time to make these videos. They are so inspiring an motivating. I have been a nutritarian for almost three years, but I still have so much to learn. My husband just started the nutritarian life style about a month ago, and already lost some weight. I will share this video with him. He likes to cook, and I’m sure he will love watching it. So, Please, keep them coming!

    • Oh Elena thank you so much for this amazing comment and for watching! Isn’t it incredible how much there is to learn as we keep going? I still feel like I’m such a beginner, 5 years in!! Crazy! 🙂 Huge congrats on getting your husband on board. That’s amazing!! Keep it up! <3

  9. Hi Cheri! As for the salad, everybody will have their own method. However, I heard from a doctor that it should be washed when it is whole (whole leaves) under running water, otherwise when you cut it and rinse the pieces with water, you lose many vitamins which are water soluble.
    I’m sure salad is sprayed at least 1-2 times while it is growing because there are many bugs interested in it. It is tender and they love it. Dandelion or corn salad are more natural kinds of plants and you won’t see bugs attacking them. Thanks for sharing your recipes! P.S. I often eat salad as it is, like a rabbit. I don’t cut it and just use a dip.

    • Hi Sandra!! As always thanks for your detailed comments with great info!! I saw Dr Fuhrman himself not washing the insides of his romaine in his lunch FB live once, so I don’t feel as bad about not getting every single thing right every time. 🙂 I’m just that type of person who won’t get all those details right, or it will end up derailing me to try. I’m sure some nutrient are lost when washing them away, but it’s just a thing I choose to live with in order to stay on plan. And I think most importantly for people starting out, that it’s good to show the imperfections in our methods so we can all do our best and not stress about the smaller details. Does this make sense? But hopefully anyone reading your great comment will be more inspired to up their nutritional game a bit!!! And I love your not cutting and eating as a dip, comment, that’s great. I don’t tend to have things on hand to dip them in — what do you like to dip in it? Usually hummus or something? THANKS again Sandra

    • The Watering Mouth  I know what you mean. Yes, I use hummus, a vegan ranch dressing (with cashews), guacamole…

  10. Loved it!! My fav is the buddha bowl. I have been eating this way now for 3 weeks. I love it. I feel better and lose about 5lbs per week. I eat whole fruit throughout the day and then the salad with beans and seeds. I would probably lose more, but I always put too much seeds or nuts. Have to be careful with those lol . I will check out your patreon for sure ty 🙂

    • Hi Christina! Welcome to the club!! You are making such a great transition for your health — GREAT job! And great job on the weight loss as well yay! Yeah I have an issue with nuts and seeds too lol. I’ve been actually using measuring cups a lot more lately, GASP, and it’s been helping me cut back a tiny bit. 🙂 hahaha. Thanks for checking out Patreon, I really appreciate that! Hope you love it. Have a great day!

  11. If anyone is on a budget but wants a blender that does the job…keep an eye out in Aldi. In early spring I got a nutribullet knock off on clearance for 13.00. It’s the same wattage as the best nutribullet. I have no issues making green smoothies or nut based dressings in it. Maybe it’s not ideal if you needto make ginormous smoothies but it works for me.

  12. Thanks for the recipes! I really like them except most are impossible to use on a work day (I work 7AM – 4PM). Also, just be aware that some of those Almond Breeze products have recently been recalled (for having real dairy milk in the container).

    • Hi Arlene!!! You’re so welcome! Yes, it’s hard to be able to make them during the day when you work like that, but these salads do well overnight too, so you could make them in the evening, and put the wet things in containers like the hummus and the lime, and just mix altogether when you’re at work. Just chew fast on your lunch! 😀 And yes I think I saw something about that. I’m not super worried about having a tiny bit of dairy, but definitely something to look out for for strict vegans. <3 <3 I don't typically use that brand anyhow, but it's all they had. 🙂

  13. Hi Cheri! So do you eat one large salad each day or salad with each meals? (lunch + dinner). Or just one salad and the soup for dinner? I’m a bit confused with this nutritarian diet! Do you snack sometimes? With what? ^^’ Thanks! 🙂 ps: I’m so relating to the “fear of hunger” stress. Thank you so much for your cozy vid’, it’s soothing my soul ah ah ah!

    • Hi Bee!!! Heehee, you’re so welcome for the cozy vid. Lots more back in the day with similar messages. Ok, so what it comes down to is two things: 2-3 meals per day with no snacking first of all. The only time I “snack” is when I’m preparing another meal, like I’ll have a few tomatoes or some raw veggies or cooked mushrooms while cooking. I just count this as part of my meal. And for your first question: don’t make this so difficult. 😀 It’s very flexible. You can eat your meals however you want to, salad at each meal, or one large salad in a day, or whatever, as long as you get the equivalent of one large salad per day. The other meals can be like smoothies, or oatmeal, or grain bowls, or soup, or casseroles, or steamed veggies, or wraps, or burritos, or stirfry or LITERALLY ANYTHING you want that is composed of Nutritarian foods. You don’t even have to have typical breakfasts like smoothies or oatmeal, you could have salad for breakfast if you want! 🙂 It’s yours to make however you like, but just stay in the guidelines of 2 or 3 meals per day, however you like, but no snacking. Ok hope this helps!!! Let me know if this is more clear or if you still have questions on this part. Happy to clarify…and maybe I’ll even make a video out of this!! <3

  14. Yesss my dear, oh I have heard this SO many times!! I think tons of us have a fear of this at first, for sure. Can’t wait to hear how it goes when you finally use it! Start with something easy like just beans! Will give her lots of hugs and kisses from you, that’s easy to do! 😀 She’s super kissable. Happy Friday/Saturday!!!

  15. Oh yessss my friend, so nice to hear from you. Love the cauliflower rice idea, I always forget about that stuff. But CILANTRO!!! NOOOOOO never. 🙂 hahaha. We don’t get along. You’re so welcome but thank YOU for watching and commenting. Nice to see you. xoxo

  16. Ahhh ok this makes so much sense that it would be so overwhelming for this reason!! Thanks a gazillion for giving me these details, this is super helpful. So glad to be of help to you, and excited to see your journey as it unfolds!! <3
