  1. Just want to let you know… I've probably watched 1-2 videos per day for the last two weeks straight. Your videos are EXACTLY what I've been looking for – educational (backed by science and not trends), honest, and non-judgmental. I've been eating the garlic chicken rice bowl for the last week and I love it. I'm seriously addicted to your channel – thanks so much for creating really high quality, informative content!

  2. I finally got to make the first pasta dish in the video! Made a few changes, but nothing major. SO GOOD. I tagged you on IG so you can see!

  3. Love your videos, Alyssa! Just thought you should know though, in your veggie spaghetti recipe, you've labeled the zucchini "cucumbers". I thought to myself, wow, cucumber in a hot pasta dish? Only Alyssa could make that work! Although zucchini makes more sense! 😉

  4. I LOVE this! Educational, healthy and funny! I also love how short and TO THE POINT your videos are. I can't stand watching 10 minute videos on how to make overnight oats lol. I just found your channel an hour ago and am seriously loving it already. So much inspiration thank you!!!

  5. Hi! You are new to my private list and I am fascinated with your videos and all that goes with it! On this last video I literally drulled without me noticing it, yummy! Can't wait to try this. Thx so much for making it fun to watch. XX

  6. I just want to let you know i made your taco quinoa recipe & topped it with avocado, it was so so good. Loved it!! It's going on my weekly meal prep rotation for sure & my recipe book!

  7. Ok ….I legit just found you and I am absolutely obsessed, wonderful quality and great recipes! 👍🏼 on every video I have watched, also I subscribed after watching the very first video I found (home made boba tea)! Thanks so much for sharing with us!
