Also you seem so, so kind and excited about FOOD!
My family is vegetarian im learning meal prep for a family of 8 so this helped. Being a busy mom im hoping this will help my day go smoothly
What kind of pots and pans do you use? I need new but dont know what to get
Question how many people can we feed with that? I have growing boy n the husband n they don’t get full with the vegan meals.
please do a video on how to save on baby gear and all about babies basically… thank you
great video! love connecting with other vegans! just subbed! I make vegan videos as well if you wish to check em out, Sending my praise 😀
this is amazing!! trying all of these.
That green soup is so bright! Looks fantastic! Great tip to find recipes that use similar ingredients. It looks more realistic/doable for someone who is not a full time YouTuber or food blogger. With other meal prep videos I get tired just watching them, they have so many steps!
I love watching you cook. I hope you post more. I am new sub and I really love your family. Especially how you and your hubby put haters into their place without being rude. Keep up the good work xxx
Just found your channel and subbed. Loved watching you cook and the good looks delicious. I recently went vegan and am getting tired of eating humus and veggies!
Great organization skills Tasha, I just found your channel and looked @ almost all your videos. Hope your family knows how lucky they are.
I recently went vegan and love these recipes! Please share more.
THANK you sooooooooooooooo much Tasha….I used to cook several meals at oncenow….. toast….is all I can manage…lol….. LOVE the meals….. !!!!!
I want to be a vegetarian or maybe even vegan for health reasons and because I feel bad for the animals.
These recipes look delicious, especially the lasagna soup and the quinoa. I'm meatless (pescetarian), so I will definitely try these out. BTW…totally off topic, but I big chopped yesterday (well, a stylist did it)! I watched your video for inspiration. I'm adjusting, but looking forward to trying out new styles. Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you for sharing. As a vegan for almost seven years I know the meat will not be missed once these delicious recipes are made. Vegan food is not only delicious but healthy and colorful of nutrients too. Your baby is so cute.
