  1. My grocery bill is now at least 3X more than it was a few years ago, and we were already struggling then, so no joke. I never buy products anyway, so I really appreciate this! (except the protein powder.)

  2. Great ideas. I love the pesto recipe. By the way the SCOBY is actually the cultures in the liquid. The slimy thing is just cellulose that the SCOBY produces. You can just throw it away. You can keep or give a small jar of unflavoured liquid kombucha for future fermentations.

  3. Never bought hummus in my life. Chickpeas are cheap. I cook my own. Two big pots and then I freeze the chickpeas. I make my own hummus. Like someone commented it is very quick and easy to make and much cheaper and tastier when homemade. (Toast sesame seeds, blend with neutral oil).

  4. One time i made Kombucha, decades ago, and there were weevils in it…i was pretty bummed, so i threw it out, so you may want to keep an eye out for that…i don't know if it's a common thing….🍌🍓🫐

  5. You're in Canada, right? Because the U.S. is not currently in a recession. In fact, we're doing better than any other G7 country. But it's always a good idea to watch what we spend on groceries. Besides I just like to watch your videos!

  6. I know this is totally unrelated, but I feel I must address the elephant in the room. Which is the Edgy Veg's sexy and revealing outfit she wore for this video. The cleavage shot in the beginning was a pure delight to see. Gracias! 🥰😍

  7. You can also make your own breadcrumbs with the odss and eds of bread… dry them out in the oven and through in the food processor – pulse for panko style or process finely for italian style.

  8. Awesome tips, I love them all! I will so be doing the spaghetti sauce and the croutons. I love hummus and I saw your video when you came back from Israel and I made that recipe and it was so, so good, I wanted to eat it by the spoonful. Sadly, chickpeas do not love me back so even though they are a vegan staple, I finally just stopped eating them. Super bummed, but the people around me have to breathe, LOL! So, I switched to learning how to make Baba Ghanoush (sp?). It is so easy to make, but if you ever come up with any recipe on your own, I would love to try it! It, like Hummus, I could eat by the spoonfuls too! Thanks Candice, you are awesome!! ❣

  9. Ah but when you make your own hummus…make your own tahina!!! Tahina is so so expensive. You just roast some sesame seeds on a stove top quick quick….blend them as they are. Then add 2tbsp neutral oil and you have tahina. I just throw the chickpeas and other ingredients in with the tahina that's already in the blender and done! 🎉🎉🎉

  10. Thank you!! I’ve been using my cookbooks and staple items a lot more. I will definitely be making my own hummus and sauces from now on. Kombucha would be fun to try too

  11. I’m living for the roots!! Love your hair.
    These are some great recipes. The croutons are funny because I’m super lazy. So one day I was going to make croutons and my usual system was to smear the bread with seasoning, toast and then cut it up. Then dry it out a little more. Well one day I was in no mood for step three and we just ate savory toast next to the salad. This is what we have done every since 😂😂😂
    Can you do a video on the best way to store our homemade creations? That is one of the reasons I don’t make homemade stuff like mayonnaise, I don’t eat it fast enough so it goes bad. I end up wasting money that way.
