Top 10 Channels

Clean Eating Kitchen

The Clean Eating Kitchen YouTube channel is an extension of my blog, Clean Eating Kitchen! The Clean Eating Kitchen YouTube channel is devoted to easy, gluten-free and dairy-free recipes to help you feel great. I usually make the most popular recipes from my blog, plus I share stories and tips from my kitchen.

The most popular videos that I’ve shared so far are my Immune-Boosting Orange Smoothie recipe, my Mango Coconut Ice Cream recipe, and my Air-Fryer Salmon.

2. Downshiftology

The Downshifology YouTube channel is so professional! Lisa shares gluten-free recipes that are always very approachable and delicious. Fun fact: Lisa and I went to the same graduate school, although we were there at different times.

Lisa is known for her meal prep videos, and they are excellent!

3. Mind Over Munch

Mind Over Munch is another highly-professional channel with videos that are quick and succinct. I always learn something from Alyssia’s videos that are often Whole30, plant-based, and paleo-friendly.

One of my favorite Mind Over Munch videos is her one-hour meal prep.

4. Fit Men Cook

The Fit Men Cook YouTube channel is one of my favorites. Kevin is such a fun personality and his recipes are made using real food ingredients. He often offers gluten-free and plant-based substitutions. I really want to make his Low-Carb Fried Rice.

5. Rainbow Plant Life

This is a vegan channel that is so beautifully done. Nisha is an amazing chef and shares very advanced techniques for plant-based meals. Rainbow Plant Life is the perfect channel for vegans who want to take their meals to the next level. I really want to try her sheet pan pancakes.

6. Pick Up Limes

Pick Up Limes is another vegan channel with beautifully-shot recipes. Sadia has a background in nutrition, so her recipes are often very health focused. I was thrilled when she shared some of her summer drinks. The honeydew cooler reminded me of one of the best drinks I’ve ever had at a restaurant.

7. Mary’s Nest

The Mary’s Nest YouTube channel is the best channel for traditional recipes, including fermented foods, sourdough, and home remedies. Mary is one of my actual virtual friends, and she is lovely and extremely knowledgeable.

Don’t miss her videos for quick pickles and Instant Pot chicken bone broth. Mary also gave me a shout-out in this video. Thanks, Mary!

8. Clean & Delicious

Dani is a veteran of YouTube, and the Clean & Delicious YouTube channel is a great one. I love that she has a balanced approach to healthy eating, and her recipes look very easy.

9. Sweet Peas Saffron

If you want inspiration for meal prepping, you’ve got to check out the Sweet Peas Saffron YouTube channel. Denise has lots of great tips, and her videos are very enjoyable to watch.

10. The Domestic Geek

Sara Lynn is the host of The Domestic Geek YouTube channel. It’s a great, clean eating channel where you can get lots of ideas for healthy recipes that are easy to make.
