What is that scale you are using?
I usually enjoy Ethan's vids, especially abt making foods healthily and easily because I'm dx'd w chronic fatigue and more.
I guess I'm just old, isolated, and unadventurous. The first section made sense, the second had ingredients not found in our tiny TX town, the third was logical.
I don't understand the trend spicing everything up.
I need recipes and easy technique. Thanks for the vids.
This is how you really learn how to cook, I hope a lot of people get to see this video. One thing from the health perspective though, I"m wondering why you're using non-fat or low-fat products. From what I understood, this is rather harmful since those fats you cut out make you feel significantly fuller, it makes the food much more savory, plus those fats, in moderation, don't really make you take in too much energy since we tend to make up for them eating more carbs. And that's the stuff that makes people fat. It's mostly carbs, so at this point the whole low-fat thing seems just like a massive scam to me.
Looove these ideas!
Whats your preferred oil?
Thank you for the great content! Do you happen to offer pdf's of the charts/graphics you use? 🙂
We love blackened chicken- great on tacos, salads, sandwiches, over rice 🙂
THIS IS A BOOK! Please write this into a book. I'll buy it
This framework is a great concept, and I'm so glad I stumbled across it. Thanks for helping me break free of recipes.
holy crap that chart is how I've always intuitively cooked – I thought it was just me making the best of chaos but i guess I'm just a pretty chart lmaoooooooooooo
Your videos are really cool. I had a mom growing up that loved to constantly try a different meal every night, and it took me a long time to realize I could turn cooking into a formula that makes it fast, easy, and a little fun… without having to reinvent the wheel every Tuesday.
I sort of stumbled to something of the sort with Bimbibap and ramem soup. Now I top whatever with veggies, protein source and a fried or cooked egg(eggs are protein too but I meant fish, meat or beans).
It is always delicious and satiating. Still, I decided to devote May's internacional food day on my meal plan with japanese food only. It is healthier. Would you do one video like this applied to japanese food ( and several other cuisines in separat videos? Or one in how to apply it to any fireign cuisine.
Why do so many people pickle onions vs chopping and freezing? Just curious!!
I know this is a cooking channel so your pretty much obligated to make some food but still I would love to have had a long form discussion-esque video just focusing on the framework
None of these recipes work for me. Low carb, lots of eggs.
this channel is OGGGGGG
A KFC Ad for their new Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets just played and boy they looked so good. 😂 The fast food industry are watching you. Or maybe they are only out to ruin my life. Unfortunately I must go to KFC ASAP… and then I can attempt to walk the lighter path. Damn KFC!
Can you make a video about vegetarian options?
I love thé way you display your recipes on the site. The layout is awesome
I would love to have a printable or poster version of that flow chart for my kitchen. A decision making aid like that could go a long way towards making it easier to develop healthier eating habits.
this man spends 95% of his life cooking or doing meal prep
So Are you Married?
The wrap is good at 7:30
Wow!! This is just fantastic bro. Just started following your channel and this video just showed how simple it is to mix and match with the basic premise. Can you also do a video with some easy tikka masala/Indian spice mixes?
You helped me unmeasurably to lose almost 30 kg. I've always struggled with diets because I love eating and bland food depress the shit out of me, but you make healthy tasty food easy to approach and cook. Thank you Ethan, from the bottom of my heart
Great video, me an my girlfriend started using macrofactor a month ago. Great tactics for measuring sauces and oils. Looking forward to trying some of these sauces.
Lol I think 0:05 was meant to bear a sexual meaning, like the girl is lesbian or something
You have great healthy recipes! I just ask when u use really different ingredients, aka- black vinegar, please say if a regular vinegar is ok. I am one of those that I follow a recipe to a T, at least the first time I make it. I’m definitely NOT experienced with spices either so a lil explanation of what flavors it will bring will really help me out too 🤤Will b subscribing 👍🏼
What's up with these YouTube content creators thinking we want to hear all the noises they make while drinking or eating? Do they think we like it? It's so gross. Seriously, who goes out of their way to listen to someone swish their saliva around in their mouth while eating or drinking….
This is only 2nd video I've seen by this individual, and I'm almost tempted not to view any more of his content.
This is some God Teir Stuff Man!
Thank you! So simple but such intelligent use of ingredients and time.
It seems so obvious after watching your video, yet I never thought about it. We find a recipe we like, usually because of the seasoning, and when we crave that taste, we just take out the recipe and go buy the ingredients we are missing and just recreate the same recipe everytime.
Now that you've opened my eyes, I can't wait to go back to take a look at recipes I like, determine the seasoning technique and use it on other things!
Found this gem and it renewed my hopes of making tasty, healthy meals! Thanks!!
Isnt eating burned food unhelathy? Just asking, seems like people's opinions are 50-50 on that.
What's the name of the actual scale you used please. The link in the description didn't look like the one you used in this video.
Bath tub pizza?
gave me a good chuckle
Pro tip with the stir fry sauce. Add it to the side of the wok, around your main ingredients. It will caramelize a bit and add a depth of flavor you won't get by just putting it directly on top
What was the pasta you used in the Warm Chicken Pasta Salad? Everything really looks good. I can see where it would give you the freedom to create so many dishes!! Thank you!
sooo guys I made the wraps and they were so good!! instead of making the sauce I just spread ranch on the wrap, and I put a little already made chipotle sauce from the grocery store on it. I'll make another post with the ingredients of the entire video. Thanks Ethan 🖤
Where can I discover more "seasoning techniques" other than these ones? I've tried searching for lists of them.
This is just straight up game changing!
Hi Ethan- thanks for the blacken spice mix, I used it for the chicken today and love it!! ❤
