I always feel a green soothe is nutritious, I’ve got some regrown celery that I like to add , it has a stronger taste
Hi Madeleine! I just found your channel and I've been loving it ❤ Your hair is very similar do mine and I wanted to ask you how to you style it to look so pretty! I still didn't find THE product 🤭
Love your videos. I’m vegetarian but eat lots of vegan food so find your videos brilliant. Can you do a weekly budget grocery shop for Sainsburys as it would be great to get some more ideas as I seem to end up with a routine of meals.
Hi Madeleine, I loved this video – tbh your videos are my favorite thing to watch on here, they feel very positive, relaxing and uplifting 🙂 I have been practising baking my own bread (it's life-changing!!) but am struggling with getting the loaf to rise properly, it spreads and flattens a lot whilst proofing. Any tips to get a more compact shape? Thanks xx
these vids are my FAVORITE !! 😀
and you make a video on pantry essentials pls <3
I put porridge oats in my smoothies which fill me up (not vegan just found your videos and love them)
Hi Madeleine! Thanks for sharing these. They look really great 😍
Great recipes – I tried your winter veg gratin recipe last year, it was delicious 😍
For sweet popcorn it's not enough to sprinkle the popcorn with sugar as it will all fall off and you'll end up with most sugar on the bottom and tasteless popcorn. It's better to heat up the oil until it's really hot, then stir in sugar and let it caramelize for 10 seconds while stirring, then add the kernels, turn of the heat and shimmy the pot regularly. Tastes like the sweet popcorn you get in cinemas! Fun fact: in Germany we usually have sweet popcorn and I was mindblown when I realized in my twenties that the popcorn I saw in American movies and soaps is actually not sweet!
I love these vids with lots of ideas to help plan the daily meals. And you also remind me some kind of good that I sometimes don't include into my meal plan.
Sometimes your ingredients are poured too quickly and it's a bit difficult to recognize what they are. I wonder if you might say what all the ingredients are. Thanks Maddie
You have inspired me so much. I went vegan in Nov 22 and have really enjoyed my new way of eating. I have tried every diet and fad going and have never sustained it. You have helped me completely change the way I view food. I feel the best I’ve ever felt and my new way of eating is slowly trickling down to my family which I love. My Children LOVE Alex’s bread, which I bake for them twice a week ! Thank you Madeleine and Alex. ❤
Would love vegan weekly shop & meals videos on the theme of 'convincing vegan skeptics/fussy eaters'! Signed, an aspiring vegan endurance athlete (currently vegetarian)
Thank you for these videos, they are helpful and fun to watch! Re: the 'extra's' discussion: it seems fair to use things that are leftover from last week but maybe you could share what's leftover from the budget shop at the end of the week too, which you will carry into the next week? It would be interesting to see whether that evens it out or if you use it all up for the budget meals week.
You can add salt straight to the kernels of your popcorn at the beginning. It makes a difference.
A good way to have sweet popcorn is to add icing sugar
I love your videos, you and Alex are so adorable:)
No hate or judgment but you really should look at how you label your videos to make sure they’re accurate. As I couldn’t have taken £16 to Tesco and made the exact meals you did as I don’t have those extras in my pantry.
Loved this video just made popcorn and followed your method. Was perfect yummy
Pasta is also good with garlic and peanut butter.
Please don't think you're a mess because you don't have make-up on. You aren't xx
I don't know if you find this but sometimes smoothies (esp with fruits) send my blood sugar really high and then it crashes and I feel really hungry! It's annoying as it is a great way to get lots of goodness in. I thinking eating it with some protein avo toast does help with this xx
I really appreciate all the time and effort you guys put into these videos, It really does bring it home its not expensive to eat healthily and it doesnt have to be all processed foods !!
That was absolutely cracking. 👏👏👏 I do appreciate a detailed breakdown which factors in the store cupboard, which isn't magically restocked after all! Lovely satiating recipes too.
Love what you did with the Thursday word
Can't relate to the fruit thing, I live in so cal and there's tons and tons of fruit (especially citrus and avocados) year-round and I find pounds and pounds of it every day so I don't pay for it. Other food is expensive though
More this video please and thank you 😊
Love Crispy Kale. That looks really good. Love popcorn. So easy to do on the stove. I Love lentils too. That mushroom and toast looks so good. I don't cook mine too long. Just long enough. I want to be plant based. And I'm on a budget. Trying to figure it out. Everything looked really yummy.
I always plan my week (or at least 3-4 days) ahead, everything else stresses me out too much. 😆
This video has inspired me so much! Recently I have been making a big batch of soup at the weekend and having that for breakfast each day, I just microwave it in a mug! I find it more filling than a smoothie and less faff. This week is spiced carrot and lentil 😍 thank you for all these amazing ideas, it is really helpful ❤️
I forgot how cheap popcorn is!! I feel I've mastered budget meals but am a sucksr for snacks… Do you think you'd ever fo a budget snack series, like when people blend oats for pancakes? Thanks for the ideas ❤️ love that you think outside the box for food x
I’ve got a vegan protein powder to recommend! It’s an Aussie brand called Botanika Blends. I’m not even vegan and they’re my go-to protein powders. That and Macro Mike; they both ship worldwide!
Fantastic budget vegan meals Madeleine and love 🥰 this video and love 💕 Madeleine for sharing them and the inspiration.
MADDIE!!!!! On Monday’s intro…you looked like an absolute angel! You’re always very pretty but…not to get weird or anything but you looked stunning! Love, love, LOVE to see your cooking videos again! Also love the budget shopping! We so need it! Blessings & Hugs! 🧡🌻
I’d love to see you do a what’s left and pantry week, see how long you can go with out going to the shops and how inventive you can be
I’m not a fruit person unfortunately but I totally get it!
Would you make a video where you cook your favorite recipes that other vegan youtubers have created? 🙂
You have to try nutritional yeast on your popcorn!! So yummy.
Oh! I already commented but I just got to the end of the video. I’m actually really looking forward to the cupboard clear out challenge . My mom use to do the “everything but the kitchen sink” stew which was never the same twice 😂
And if I could request a challenge it would be something like “10 ingredient/ 10 meals” or something like that. Using the same basic ingredients in a variety of ways.
Because that kind of advice helps people on a budget a lot. 👍
OK! So budget meals from tesco? I dont live in the UK. That mean said, can you juste not say from tesco and showing real recipes? Thank you!
This came at the best possible time. I am STRUGGLING HARD with budget meals. Thank you.
Amazing video! Would you be able to do some “hidden veg” vegan recipes? My husband doesn’t like veg but I would like to eat more plant based foods 😂
The recipes ideas are really helpful! However, I'm not sure it's fair to advertise this video and the last as "£16 weekly budget meals" with how many ingredients you used that aren't included in that total. Imo, it's fine if it's a few inexpensive ingredients leftover from an equally budgeted grocery trip (e.g. flour, rice); however, a lot of the "extra" ingredients are pretty pricey and leftovers from much more expensive grocery hauls (e.g. maple syrup, nuts/seeds, tahini, frozen fruit, protein powder, etc).
It's especially an issue for some of the meals/snacks like the smoothies, protein shakes, or mac'n'cheese where most of the cost per serving is coming from aforementioned expensive "leftover" ingredients. It kinda seems like "cheating" insofar as it's not really a full week of meals on £16, since there's whole meals (and half of others) that aren't included in that.
Just some food for thought in the future! I do appreciate the video. Thanks Maddie <3.
What could I use instead of cashews? (I'm allergic, no peanuts either).
Hey Madeleine would be fab if you did a slow cooker meal inspiration video ❤ great vid as always xx
Hi Maddie! Could you share a recipe with mung beans someday? Thanks! Love you channel 💕
Well done great video so consistent xxx
