  1. Love your Recipes, Adore your Videos 🙂 ! Greetings form Egypt! Bisous Alysia 🙂

  2. I'm sorry I really tried to make that soup but the veggies that came out if the oven were so good I enden up eating them all before I could think straight 😂😂😂

  3. Can I just say, I love how Alyssia made a yin-yang with the salt and pepper with the tomato thing…… I can't spell it, nor pronounce it LOL.

  4. that's cheap ingredients but low income people might not have a food processor or oven. this might be a good video for people who actually have these tools and are cutting on budget. i would appreciate if your next video would be recipes for charcoal pots or stoves 😉

    the recipes look delicious. i might make the bread 🙂

  5. Wait… RAW potato and zucchini soup? How’d I miss that the first time around?

  6. your bread recipe says 1 5/8 cups of water. i have no idea how to measure 5/8. please guide

  7. Can you use brown rice gluten free blend for the bread?

  8. 1:12 Will it work if I replaced the whole wheat flour with white all purpose flour?

  9. Where is the bread recipe?

  10. You are so wrong to compare the price of food in African countries vs. U.S.A. It's not same. Know the difference between the values of the currencies and the currency exchange rates. If you paid $1 for a cup of peanuts in the U.S., for example, you might spend only $0.10 for a cup of peanuts in foreign some countries. You might get more bang for your buck abroad.
    The value of your dollar varies from country to country. Some things are very expensive in poor countries like hotel, plane tickets etc. So always use caution when you use the phrase "poor countries". You cannot compare U.S. definition of poverty based on income levels, with other countries definition of poverty. Maybe you'd be more precise to use the word "hunger" if you want to talk about cost of food specifically. The poverty is due to corruption and mismanagement of natural resources by leaders in such so-called "poor African countries". When do you donate money, use caution so the money don't fall in the hands of corrupt leaders in "poor countries" 🙁

  11. Do you know when the challenge will be this year (2018)? I'm interested!

  12. I am OBSESSED with your content and that is an understatement !!!!

  13. I wish someone would do this qith shit poor people have. Poor people dont have blenders and food processors and cant buy in bulk


  15. Ugh I wish oats were affordable in my country… I live in Cambodia and oats are three times more expensive here than in the US.

  16. I do agree with the posts about it all adding up and being unrealistic.  But, I did enjoy this video and loved the ideas and tips.  And I would love to try them.  I really enjoy getting ideas from all the youtubers.  Even if it isn't always cheap!  Thanks for sharing your ideas!  Keep it up!  Cause, I will be watching for sure!

  17. You didn`t put the mesurements of the bread recepie! Can you please give me them?

  18. This bread looks really good, but can you please write down the measurements for the ingredients please? Thank you

  19. Great to think about other countries, but what about our own?

  20. Hi Alyssia! I'm excited to try these recipes I just have a question, can I make the bread into little rolls? Also I really admire you helping out with this great cause!

  21. Great ideas! Thank you. On Mexico you can have a great Lunch on street for less $3. Food is less in other countries. They get paid less but also they pay less. for food, gas, rent, etc..

  22. Pine nuts? This is great anyway.

  23. I hit thumbs up before I even watch, lol.

  24. Can anyone explain to me how all of this would only cost $1.90? Buying all these ingredients would be way more expensive than that. How are you able to buy only he exact measurements you need?

  25. I think, that even not extremely poor people, often don't own food processorsnice ovens, that you used to make peanut butter and bread. Those are really nice recipes, but they are not realistic even for students, let alone struggling families in Africa.

  26. I tried the bread but found it that the yeast taste is too overpowering

  27. I have had times in my life where I had about 5 euros a week. I didnt have a fancy food processor at that time, and I'm sure I wouldnt be the only one.
