  1. I made the dried fruit bars tonight, and I actually really like them (I wasn't 100% convinced, but I like to try new things)! They are, however, really REALLY sticky. The video doesn't make them look too bad, so I wonder if I did something wrong, or are they just really good at masking it? Has anyone else made them and had similar results?

  2. Would tomato paste and mozzarella cheese with a tortilla wrap cooked on a pan taste good? Would it taste like pizza or something?

  3. Your videos are absolutely awesome. I am new to your channel. I love Bento Boxes and you have given me some great lunch ideas! so happy to have found you.

  4. I love your recipes but I can't do the Turkey ones because I can only eat halal. Do you know any way to get halal Turkey or a vegetarian Turkey substitute?

  5. I thought the very first one (skewers) said "55$" and I was like HOW IS THIS ON A BUDGET AND WHERE DO YOU BUY YOUR FOODS?!

    nvm haha

  7. Theese are perfect and i love all of your bentos and i would like to see you do a nut-free one so i can make them for school.

  8. How can these things be so cheap? Like the melons should be at least more than a dollar. Not criticizing just pointing something out

  9. Such amazing recipes, I love it (as always). Just notice, that the whole wheat Tortillas are not gluten free. But you can substitute them easily with gluten free Tortillas (as I do for my son's bento). 🙂

  10. I wonder, can I sub a different flour for the almond meal? My kids have nut allergies and I’m still breastfeeding, so literally my hubby is the only one that can eat tree nuts. I’ve got wheat gluten and several other flours. I’m also not worried about the protein content.

  11. Okay, gonna have to switch some stuff around and leave out certain ingredients for me, seeing as I can't do added sugar this next week.

  12. I love this but I would replace the peanuts w something else bc most schools don’t allow peanuts and I’m allergic but liked everything else

  13. I am a huge fan of your channel. Thanks for all your amazing videos. I just finished making the mini quiches and am wondering if they will do well frozen? I’m trying to give my daughter (somewhat picky eater) a more interesting/ healthy lunch. This video had so many great ideas! PS, don’t let the complainers get you down.. no way you can make everyone happy.

  14. The title of the video says "cheap and healthy gluten free recipes!" Whole wheat tortillas aren't gluten free, and aren't an "affordable ingredient" like you specify in the video. Same with getting certified gluten free oats. If you're going to make a gluten free video, then make one. Go out and try to find affordable gluten free tortillas, or make a recipe to share. You didn't even specify in your "gluten free" video that an ingredient you were using wasn't gluten free. What if someone who doesn't know what gluten is was trying to find ideas for what to make for a gluten free friend, and they clicked on your video to get ideas? They're not going to know any better. They'll probably assume you know what you're talking about. You should probably change the title on your video.

  15. Okay so I made the mini egg muffins last night. TIP: DO NOT USE THE FOIL OR PAPER MUFFIN LINERS!!! I should have just pored into my pan with the cooking spray like you did. The egg stuck to the foil liners. Just on the bottom, not a total fail but still Delicious! The halved grape tomato on the top made all the more fancy!

  16. The second lunch was the best 👌👍🥪🍏🍎🍐🍊🍋🍌🍉🍇🍓🍈🍒🍑🍍🥥🥝🍅🍆🥑🥦🥒🌶🌽🥕🥔🍠🥐🍞🥖🥨🧀🥚🍳🥞🥓🥩🍗🍖🌭🍔🍟🍕🥙🌮🌯🥗🥘🥫🍝🍜🍲🍛🍣🍱🥟🍤🍙🍚🍘🍥🥠🍢🍡🍧🍨🍦🥧🍰🎂🍮🍭🍬🍫🍿🍩🍪🌰🥜🍯🥛🍼☕️🍵🥤🍶

  17. Thank you very much for this. I have cellaic disease and as a college student it’s hard to find gluten free options at school sometimes. But no I will be using all your tools to help me make these easy and affordable snacks! I enjoyed this video 🙂

  18. I am not gonna lie, not only does all these look DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS… those beats are awesome 😉 LOVE all your stuff!!

  19. Great ideas, I love your ideas and videos. My concern though is how are they only $1 boxes? Grapes here in Jax FL are like $3 a pound. 8 oz of cream cheese is .88 cents alone. Any fruits n veggies are not that cheap.

  20. Okay so for the first bento I have a few questions? How many calories are in a fat stack of pennies and is that box Keto?

  21. The editing was so entertaining! I like how the ingredients were listed and we could watch the process, rather than have a lengthy explanation. 👌

  22. Beautiful and fun to watch, and I really appreciate the effort that went into making them.. but I bet they taste aweful.

  23. That whole wheat tortilla is definitely not gluten free!!! Please be more careful in future videos. Even the smallest amount of gluten is very very harmful for celiacs.

  24. The biggest reason people give for eating healthy is the cost. But if you’re spending more money on healthy food, you’re spending less money on junk food.

  25. It says the prices of how much it would cost, but only in that quantity, like it said a bunch of raspberries and cantaloupe was 36 cents, but all together it would be like $8. This isn't "Cheap" it's only cheap in small quantities.. (You can't take a chunk of cantaloupe and pay 36 cents for it, you have to buy the entire cantaloupe.) But other then that, these are good ideas and would be cheaper than most things.
