  2. I hate my taste buds, I want to enjoy eating vegetables and eat healthy. I’m over-weight at an age that I’m not supposed to be, how can I make vegetables taste good? <:(

  3. I can meet naughty women tonight

  4. “I love sprinkling beans on my salad”

  6. Thanks Rita, great video, and you also have a nice style of teaching.
    It was really interesting and inspirational, thanks so much.

  7. GREAT advice!!! Thanks very much!

  8. Vegetable and fresh fruit juices are known to posses great health-promoting properties.

  9. I always thought that the only negative calorie was celery, but holy frigg i didnt know there was a bunch of negative calorie foods! check out my research on my luuux blog!!!

  10. @666789443 It depends. Peaches keep at room temperature several days. Apples store well in the frig. Oranges keep a week or so at room temp or the frig. Lemons are best stored in the frig – rinse them off, put in a plastic baggy and they’ll keep a couple weeks. You can freeze grapes – off the stem, wash well, dry and pour onto a cookie sheet in a single layer, then put them in containers. They’ll pour out easily as you need them. Good luck with your healthy eating! Rita from AboutEating.

  11. To my healthy food list

  12. This video is truly amazing. I’ve lived off bread, water and canned goods pretty much all my life and I’ve always wanted to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my diet (especially since cancer runs in my family and I used to smoke like a chimney, lol) but I never knew how. I have a question though, how long do fresh fruits last before they expire? I think this weekend I’m going to go to the grocery store and buy a variety of fruits and veggies, but will they go bad before I can finish them?

  13. to my fovorite

  14. Hello Rita! how can i get that book??

  16. “Do not be decieved, my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, comming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:16-17

  17. @MisterNutrition One topic I introduced (which you wisely ignored) was the uric acid in all animal meat. Please respond to the fact that humans cannot digest purines in meat safely and so humans are particularly susceptible to gout, gallstones, heart disease, etc from this component in all meat.

    Your response? You have some unturned boulders back there….

  18. @Chrisisms wow you cant even read? oh thats right. veg head. no proof of anything, just crying, must be lack of nutrition

  19. Where can you buy peppermint?

  20. I agree with everything except the soy beans. Fermented soy only in the traditional Asian style—otherwise, hard to digest and actually interferes with digestion of nutrients.

  21. Excellent…Drink your vitiamins and herbs if you cant eat them

  22. Hey thanks for the information! Now I can go shoping for the right foods! 0:)

  23. The reason why people find the religious stuff bull, is cause healthy eating existed before religion. People knew what each kind of food did, and how to use it for medicinal purposes.
