4.0 Very helpful by Matt
I always find it challenging to prepare new foods. These videos provided the guidance I needed to get started. (Posted on 10/1/2014)

5.0 I love watching cooking demos by Heather

These DVDs are wonderful to watch, the chef is adorable and personable. I've had the body ecology book for a while and these dvd's have finally convinced me to try the recipes in the book. I've enjoyed each one. (Posted on 8/30/2014)
5.0 Surprisingly Helpful by Nicole
I've been familiar with the BE recipes for some time now, yet I really found this DVD and digital videos (that also come with the order) helpful and encouraging. They help me when i need to renew my mind in working even with new recipes on my own! (Posted on 8/30/2014)
5.0 Enjoyable. Entertaining. Very Educational. Fun. by JJ
I purchased this DVD to get a good idea of how to make the cultured vegetables, and some of the other recipes, too. Tatianna is so enjoyable to watch: she makes you feel like you are right in her kitchen! When I saw how easy it was to make the recipes, I used my downloaded printout to start making some right away. And they were delicious! The second reason I purchased the DVD was so that I had something to watch periodically that would keep me focused on the BED program. I tend drift back into my old eating, but when I watch her make a recipe or two, I'm back on BED. This and going to the website regularly is helping me form new habits in thinking, cooking, and living a more healthy life. Thanks so much for a good product. (Posted on 8/9/2014)
4.0 Atlanta by Stephanie
Was very helpful to watch her make the recipes and cultures. Very good if you have a hard time getting motivated to do something new! (Posted on 8/8/2014)

5.0 Kitchen recipe DVD has been so helpful by Debbie
I have been following the recipes in the BED book but watching the DVD improved my cooking as well as given me ideas for meal combinations. I hope you have more of these DVD's in the near future. It is so helpful to be able to watch and listen to your chef.

Thanks again. (Posted on 6/6/2014)
5.0 excellent by fanofBED
I got several great ideas for making different recipes that are delicious and healthy. I definitely recommend this DVD. I also hope they come up with more DVDs. I prefer the DVDs to the written recipes online because you get to see what the foods look like. (Posted on 6/6/2014)
5.0 Love this DVD by Anne
So much good information in the DVD for such a low price! (Posted on 6/5/2014)
5.0 Henderson by Genevieve
Wonderful information! Presented very clearly so it is easy to do at home. As Donna says, this is the missing piece to achieve a great health. I am excited to try every single fermented recipe on this DVD. (Posted on 6/4/2014)
5.0 Such a blessing!!! by Mona
Thank you for producing this DVD!!
I learned so much by watching the different segments. I loved the instructor, she inspired me and made me feel like I can cook healthy.
Please keep producing these for us that are new at this!. (Posted on 6/1/2014)
4.0 good but... by joy
expected more...
like donna herself
was ok, not great (Posted on 5/30/2014)
4.0 Very helpful by Alicia
I actually worked for R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Atlanta from 97-99 as both a server and a manager. I knew Richard personally. I was introduced to the diet and learned how to make most of the dishes but I'll be damned if I could figure out how to do it at home for only one or two people, and of course didn't know about the Vitamix until I started working for them last year. This video was extremely helpful in helping me FINALLY put it all together and each category had my favorite recipes. Catalina is "totes adorbs" and I'll watch her make anything. The only reason it's not an excellent rating is because the production quality is a little poor with the sound going up and down and I think it might also be helpful to have the ingredients and instructions in captions as well, so when I'm in the kitchen with my laptop watching, I can pause it and see everything I need to follow along easier. But that's just my 2 cents. Overall this is an excellent tool for anyone starting out on, or long time observer of, the BED. Well done and thank you for continuing to improve and simplify (particularly the cultured veggies!!) how to approach the BED. By the way, I did not know the cauliflower dill soup would taste good cold! IT SO DOES! (Posted on 5/29/2014)
4.0 good but... by jb
it was good, but my expectations were higher - & i thought Donna was going to be giving the class. Overall good info (Posted on 5/29/2014)
5.0 great info by Clarie
My daughter and I watched the fermented recipe demonstrations together and loved the ability to watch how and what was done.
Definitely trying these recipes! (Posted on 5/26/2014)
5.0 Excellent by Pixie
Great DVD....It's nice to see everything first hand. I have viewed this several times. Thank you for making it. (Posted on 5/24/2014)
5.0 The best by Darcy
Loved it (Posted on 5/22/2014)
5.0 DVD by Les
I love the DVD everything is very easy to follow and I look forward to more. I would ask that resources for any hard to find ingredients be included!
Thanks (Posted on 5/22/2014)
5.0 Great Video by Karen
Very inspiring and easy explanations on how to make the recipes in the BED book.
(Posted on 5/21/2014)
2.0 Not fast enough by Mello
There could have been more info and less movements and chatter by Catilina.

I am completely now to this and expected more. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
5.0 Fun and Informative by CS
I'm enjoying watching the recipe demonstrations. Being a visual learner, once I see a method being presented, it becomes more firmly entrenched in my head. Keep them coming. (Posted on 5/18/2014)
5.0 Very Good by Erin
I enjoyed watching this video, not only how some of the BED recipes are prepared, but it has helped me to be more creative on the BED diet. (Posted on 5/18/2014)
5.0 DVD by Debbie
The recipe DVD has made so much difference in my cooking and preparing meals. So different watching a live demo than reading a book although the BED book has been extremely helpful for me. I hope that you have more DVDs in the future. My issue with gastroparesis and abdominal pain is definitely better. This diet is truly a miracle for me. I was getting to the point where I didn't want to eat at all anymore but now as long as I follow the BED I am so much better. Thank you. Love you Donna Gates for sharing your knowledge and helping so many people. My goal in the future would be to get certified as a BED coach. I work as a registered nurse and I know this is the way to really help a lot of people..

4.0 Wanted more but good by Tati
I really love the chef! Her personality is super cute. However there a very few recipes and not really good ones. I already make better cooked food recipes. However I was happy for the cultured vegetable guidance. I think the video should be strict diet foods as well. I believe she added peppers in a dish. In the book we're told not to eat peppers for the first 3 months. Makes it confusing... Thanks (Posted on 5/17/2014)
5.0 Great information and easy to follow by Nancy
Excellent information and very easy to follow. (Posted on 5/17/2014)
5.0 DVD has been extremely helpful by debbie
Bought the DVD and this has been so helpful to watch and listen to how the recipes are made. I have been using the BED book for a long time but the DVD created so much improvement in my cooking. Hope you have more in the future. Thank you over and over again for what you do to help others Donna Gates. (Posted on 5/14/2014)
5.0 Amazing by PM
It is amazing. It helped me to understand the BED program so much better. I had wondered what was eaten besides the BED supplements. Thank you so much for taking the time to make the video. I hope you will make more DVDs! (Posted on 4/30/2014)
2.0 hard to listen to by dawn
The information was helpful, but I expect more from my public speakers. She was very hard (even boring) to listen to with her repeated um's and a's. (Posted on 4/21/2014)
