  3. My Never Ending Journey

  5. Ricardo Romero

    This was a really tasty meal and my family said it smelt good to! (I lost my smell because of covid) I am a noob at making food and this is quite easy to make and is really tasty! I dont know if leeks are naturally sandy everywhere in the world but my leeks was really sandy and need to get cleaned properly which was also the most time consuming part, but it was totally worth it! ^-^ I am glad that I have taken the time to make this dish! @Aspire Fitness – Asian Meal Prep sorry about the late reply I was busy with college and got sick by covid and stuff and never got to get around to making it, thank God my family and I got better and they also really enjoyed it and helped them heal from covid!
    I cant wait to make more of your food!

    I use to live in San Diego Calif and moved to Indiana. My best move ever. I could never afford a house in San Diego. My 4 bedroom house here in Indiana most likely cost over half a million in Calif. I'd be lying if I say that I don't miss it. The sunshine, the beaches, the food etc.

  8. CallMeCraig

    Really grateful that this channel exists. Asian food is my biggest weakness and an overindulgence on sesame chicken takeout makes it really hard to keep my fitness goals in check. Recipes like this will help me enjoy the foods I love and keep me sane. Appreciate it.

  9. Whitney Trinh

    Just found your channel and so happy I did! I love my Asian food but I want to be healthy. Keep up the content!

  10. The Pharaoh

    How do you eat it cold if you work? We dont have a microwave at work so the food doesn’t taste good when eaten cold..

  11. 01FrozenFuze Ch.

    Thanks for the recipe! I was trying to find some Asian recipes because I enjoy eating healthy foods but mostly Asian healthy foods but there is not a lot out there but when I came across your channel, I was sold and subbed the fist second I seen it! Keep it up I am looking forward for more Healthy Asian inspired food!

  32. Jeffrey K

    Congrats! Love your simple and understandable videos. Already made some myself ( other videos ).

    Btw in case i missed this info somewhere but when making these dishes, is it meant for yourself to eat later or do make this based off a 'generic' daily cal. intake ? ( men 2000-2500 etc. )

    ( english isnt my best when typing. Hope you understand what i am saying. )
