  • Thank you so much for this! May I ask what song you used in the beginning in this video? It was so relaxing, I want to listen to it alone too ��

  • I thought you were promoting a vegan diet. Showing in YouTube with that many YouTubers that is “fine” to eat eggs implies so much pain and cruelty to animals. This is not a diet. This is about lifes that are taken away because of our taste buds. With love.

  • Hi. Could we cook the oatmeal with milk instead water and with quinoa instead oats and freeze then to eat on another day
    Tyvm:) lisbon, portugal

  • Did you know that almond farmers truck in bees from Idaho to pollinate their trees? Yes, they do. I am from Idaho and I’ve talked to two large scale beekeepers about their bees and how they are shipped. There would not be the plethora of almonds on the market if not for the bees!

  • Hey friends! Hope you enjoy these Quinoa Breakfast Bowls! I’d love to know what are your favorite ways to top breakfast bowls! Share with me below:)

  • Konjam munadiyae poda matingala.. quinoa va enna panni sapadarathunu theriama rice madiri sapten oru taste um illa… this looks great��

  • I tried the quinoa porridge this morning. My two-year-old and I loved it. It was really super filling and we topped it with strawberries, flaxseed, blueberries, bananas and walnuts!

  • I watched a report that unfortunately explained that many bees were dying off, not surviving being shipped from various regions n the country to California to pollinate the almonds.

  • can I eat that 2xday? or is it too much quinoa I one day. is there a such thing as eating too much of it? im on a raw n broth diet and IM STARVING Lol. eating theses type dishes is new to me.

  • I am happy to see these. I had just been thinking that I probably need to focus on having protein breakfasts otherwise I feel like I can’t stop eating.

  • Any chance you know the calories in the recipe you made? How much quinoa did you use for the 2 servings? Thanks. One of my favorite combos is fresh blueberries bananas and walnuts.

  • Looks good. I have been looking for recipes with quinoa. I don’t care for it plan but have been adding it to homemade soup. Thanks for the interesting recipes and will be trying both of them.

  • I know im probably going to get heat for this, but Im like 95% vegan. I don’t buy meat, eggs, cows milk, traditional butter at the grocery store nor do I cook with them at home. I eat strictly plant based at home.
    However, im a foodie at heart and there are some things you just can’t recreate vegan. Also im in a ‘food desert’ where most of the restaurants are fast food and country spots ��. But I think making more plant based meals just in general, is a wonderful thing! If every person ate one more plant based meal a week, itd make such a difference! So I think people who are making the effort, even though they may not be absolutely 100% vegan all the time, are still helping the cause!

  • It took 3.27 min to watch the actual making of the breakfast…..such a boring video with all your unwanted ranting about your trip!!

  • HEY JUST JOINED, LOVE YOUR CHANNEL ��
    DO CHECKOUT MY CHANNEL LETS STAY CONNECTED AND SUPPORT EACHOTHER ✅
    I HAVE DONE MY PART, HOPE YOU’D JOIN TOO!

  • I have never had flax seed, chia seed and whatever else you mentioned. Can you taste it? Does it have a texture? I’ve started making overnight oats and i love them but most recipes call for the seeds.

  • omg �� this is soooo good �� I used canned coconut milk and regular almond milk together. I’m eating the whole pot (makes 1.5 cups cooked quinoa from 1/2 cup uncooked for anyone wondering) which is perfect for someone trying to gain weight like myself �� thanks for the recipe!

  • I love that you are so consistent w/your uploads. No matter what you have going on or how much you’re traveling you still work hard to plan ahead and provide us w/great content. It truly is appreciated. The porridge is something I’ll definitely make. I would have never thought to mix the oats with quinoa. I’m going to cook them in coconut milk and with dates and banana and top with stewed fruits, nuts and the coconut flakes; I hardly wait for morning. Lol.

  • So fun! I’ve been on an Almond Orchard tour before as well! Love seeing how our food grows! Your quinoa breakfast bowl looks delicious too!!

  • Could you substitute a different flavor of milk in this recipe? I’m not the biggest fan of coconut lol I’ve never liked the taste of coconut water so I don’t think I would like coconut milk but I want to try this recipe someday!

  • A few years ago there was a big commotion when companies like blue diamond and almond breeze were discovered to have actually little to no almond in them! I assume they’ve changed the formulation of their recipe, at least at almond breeze, to remedy this? Perhaps you can look into it with them for us? Thanks, Alyssa! Really excited to try this recipe.

  • WOW, aren’t you concerned about the huge volume of sugar? Thattle throw the blood glucose levels sky high, along with the insulin. Latest research indicates that high sugar levels cause severe damage to the cardio vascular system.

  • what’s that saying about too many cooks…? these three women drove me crazy, each trying to outdo one another and talking over one another. thumbs down on this one.

  • Amen! I’m from neighboring New Hampshire, and also used to live in Vermont. No way Jose to anything but the real deal, when it comes to maple syrup! Pancake syrup is blasphemy.��❤

  • I’m a new subscriber and just wondering how come you don’t wash your quinoa before cooking. Is it a special kind of quinoa? Mine tends to have a bitter taste if I don’t wash it first.

  • Awww…this egg looks so lovely and cute ������ very healthy and yummy too ������ great for breakfast dear friend thank you for sharing ������������
