  • Hi!It’s aroushi Khan from Pakistan your new subscriber I like your all videos I want to say your all videos are nice and helpful.but my request is about Ramadan please make videos for ramadan thanks.

  • Chopping vegetables to be eaten at a later date lose their nutrition. All vegetable should be eaten right after cooking, or right after cutting, if eaten raw.

  • Looks soooooooo good!!! I’m totally gonna try this! I really want to share one of my absolute favorite recipes:

  • I have been eating quinoa, but have not made any bowls. Now that my garden is coming in, this has been a great inspiration. Thank you.

  • please before you cook the quinoa wash it very well… in order to take out the saponin inside that makes it bitter and its toxicity it is good to keep away the insects but it can make you feel bad if you have certain sensitivity, if you think it is ok because in the package says pre washed I still recommend you to wash it because even on the best brands I find this soapy water. Please don’t get it wrong I am Peruvian and we use quinoa for many many generations and we want you to have the best experience and not to come back saying that it was bad for your stomach, I just want to help. My best of the wishes for your channel ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  • When you say coconut milk (recipe 2), do you mean the stuff that comes in a can? Or the kind you can buy in a carton near the almond milk?

  • Thank you so much for this recipe! The salad is sooo delicious and also it looks so beautiful with all the colours! And the mint leaves are absolutely essential!!

  • My favorite healthy food channel.. although, lately been missing recent exclusives.. btw. PREFER your SOLO channel.. you are AWESOME!!

  • Hey girl. I was wondering if you could make a tabouli salad and maybe use quinoa instead of barley (or not), but I would really appreciate your instruction on this. Thanks. ��

  • Loved this video! A great lifestyle addition video to your channel.I know you’ve mentioned you were planning to incorporate some other options along with the already priceless beauty videos you provide us with!

  • I love quinoa! I’m not a fan of chopping onions either haha. I like to do a greek quinoa salad with chicken, I just find that I’m hungry 10 minutes after eating it so I’m going to try throwing some chickpeas in with it to make it more filling. Personally, I’ll put the quinoa and the chicken in the fridge to cool down before mixing in the veggies. I’ll definitely have to try this recipe some time, it looks great! And you’re right, authentic feta is from sheep’s milk. Have you ever tried throwing in kalamata olives? I include them in the greek quinoa salad and I really like it.

  • These all look amazing. When I cook my quina though I always use some type of stock and I toss a bay leaf in there too �� a little extra but it gives it so much flavor.

  • Do you seed the cucumber and tomatoes?You will eventually slice your fingers if you continue to breakdown the feta that way,be careful break it up with your fingers.Keep going!������

  • Looks so good! You have in my blog a very easy and delicious recipe of quinoa salad, I hope you’ll enjoy it.

  • oh dear I really liked it and I can’t describe it in words on previous note i was watching another video on quinoa salad which is normally for vegans and as vegan, I stick to it and I want to add ingredients used in this video excluding milk and any nonvegan ingredients thanks a lot for lovely video.

  • I love quinoa. I think a nice spring quinoa salad would be very nice. Some of the veges would include radishes, spring green onion, grilled asparagas, spring peas and fresh herbs….YUM!

  • It been only 1 week since I started changing the what I’m eating and starting to eat healthy and get energy and get rid of gut and joins pain

  • Cheese is a highly process product and on top of that it’s an animal base product that should be consume under no circumstances ��������������

  • Wow, these are great! I will definitely try these. Question: if I want to prepare them for packed lunch, would you advise to add the dressing right away or keep it separate and add just before eating?

  • Thank you so much for the great recipes! For the Mediterranean I think can be good some olives and feta cheeses. I don’t know what you think about some tats ili sause

  • No wonder you are so pretty because of healthy eating.God Bless,you motivate me to eat healtht.Stay safe stay in stay stromg.Long Live Canada!

  • I gave birth a month ago and have changed my diet to something healthier and your videos help so much! The dishes always come out so delicious I look forward to eating and feel so good and guilt free in the end thank you! ❤️

  • What. The. Fuck. Why is there a fucking bitch talking? The dog was okay but fuck me, the girl in the green is annoying as a fucking yeast infection. Fuck me.

  • Thanks for sharing. All interesting. Anyway as i am not English native speaker, without subtitle, it’s really hard for me to understand some of what you’re talking in this clip. ��

  • Every time you use kale in a recipe I feel so puzzled… I’ve never heard of such a thing outside the internet, and I’ve never seen anything that looks remotely like this in any farmer’s market here in Brazil… Which I think is funny, because usually we have no problem in finding any sort of vegetable year round.:/

  • Wanted to try out the recipe and in the process i found out i might be alergic to quinoa. Can i use brown rice as a substitute?? Or any other substitutes i can use that are not seed related? I was making the coconut lime recipe

  • This opens up a NEW WORLD to me. Thank you so much for this recipe I can’t put in words how much I’m falling in love with it right now as I’m eating it. Incredibly tasty! Much love

  • I love the part with the dog, your personal introduction/description was a bit too long for me /too much personal talk, which wasn’t interesting for me, but the recipe is really good, thank you!

  • I love the intro with Bambi! So cute. I am also very glad you made this video because I watched a different video you made and you stated that turmeric is good for clearing acne international and externaly but I didn’t know any recipes that were organic with turmeric. Thanks for making the video, it really helped! Can’t wait to try it out! ❤️

    Roasted eggplant

    Red capsicum

    Sun dried tomatoes



    Feta cheese


  • Thank you, Kendra! Such a good and healthy recipe. It will be on my diet list for sure! Would be great to see some more cooking videos from you!:-)

  • From what I can see to make a great quinoa bowl you just need to add some vegetable, a source of protein and a dressing or sauce:)

  • I confused about cooking procedure of Quinoa I see a lot of vlog of this they said wash first before you cook it.why some other blog don’t wash they cook straight to cooking a watcher like the real truth.

  • I really don’t want to come off as a know it all whatsoever. I actually just started learning about quinoa. I felt like you missed out on explaining a few things. You’re supoused to wash quinoa to get rid of the saponin it contains which is a toxic substance used to make soap. That’s why when you wash it, it makes bubbles. You need to wash until water comes out clear. A lot of commercialized quinoa that comes packaged will already be washed but you can never be too sure. It also has a bitter taste to it, that goes away when you wash it. Also you kept saying to add xyz to it to add protein. Quinoa is a substitute protein itself. For every 100g of quinoa you get 16+ of protein. So thats also good to know. Other than that great ideas for bowls.

  • YOU RE SO BEAUTIFUUUUUULLL!! And your voice OMG. Love it!! One of the best quinua recipes ever! Im Peruvian the way and it s where the quinua come from. And you made this quinua recipe perfecto ��

  • I always found it hard for me idk why to cook the chicken like that.. I always cut it in half but not all the way. Lay it flat and season it with my favorite seasonings. I also add mango or orange pieces… that’s why I love Quinoa salad because you can add SOO MUCH!!! love it

  • If you add some salsa and corn to the black bean and cilantro salad then warm it up and makes a truly divine Southwest inspired meal

  • I’ll definitely give them a try! They look beautiful and delicious. But I have to wait for a nice weather, here in Italy it’s crazy! We have 9 degrees celsius and rainstorm… I want the sun to eat my salad! Thank you for all these beautiful recipes, they’re always a success!

  • Hi alyssa! Ive been eating quinoa but now,ill be enjoying eating this more cuz you gave me a brilliant idea…simply but irresistible recipe!
    Thank you! ����

  • Wow that is a great recipe. Being Indian, I never tried raw turmeric as we always cook termeric or boil it first but will try it for sure!!

  • My volume is off because baby is asleep so I’m reading the subtitles & she’s talking about pizza & other things completely different to what she is actually making �� not at all talking about any of the recipes!

  • Hi Alyssa, these salads look so yummy, thanks for inspiration:c) I’d like to ask about your awesome dishes I mean where do you buy/get these awesome bowls including the small blue one? Thank you very much and have a great week, Kamila:c))

  • Really appreciate your commitment to uploading this video. Good job! I’ve been pregnant and I cook at home so I know it ain’t easy!
