  • I was trying to think of my favourite meal to make in college and I honestly could not think of one because 90% of the time I’m just throwing the weirdest things I have laying around together and they’re always my favourite meal �� might be Doritos and cottage cheese or bagels with cucumbers or Mac and cheese with ham I have around. Gotta love college life

  • I have small fridge in my room,just want to know about cous cous salad.If not put in freezer how many day can keep in fridge and how about the salad tast after 3-4 days?

  • The water trick actually works. Being a college student that works part time, it is helpful to have fast and easy recipes like this that are not boring.

  • this is first mealprep ive ever done. perfect start. its so tasty i had to do it again. its sweet, sour, spicy and so delicious. and probably as cheap as possible. great job! im so happy i came across ur yt channel Bobby! its such a gem, u deserve more followers.

  • Great meal prep!! I do a similar one but with different approach.
    Basically, I buy chicken breasts and then ground them by myself with Ninja blender.
    then add to ground chicken: onion, green peppers, and carrots all grounded by Ninja blender.
    add salt, seasoning (mix arabic and american seasoning), garlic, black pepper, and low sugar ketchup, and free calorie b.b.q sauce.
    then I cook it with low heat in a big pan for 20 to 30 mins without any oil.
    it will be juicy and extremely delicious!! also, you feel full for at least 4 to 5 hours!

    My meal will be like this:
    150g ground breast chicken
    126g white beans
    100g of salads
    100g of frozen vegetables

  • I am trying this recipe but a list if ingredients instead of kitchen gear would be so more useful than having to write everything down as I try watching the video.
