  1. Some look great! I just have this very very very huge disgust towards warm cheese. I can’t get close to it a d even seeing that cheese pull long strings makes me green in the face. So maybe I’ll make the brokkoli soup with a bit more cream cheese and no other cheese 😀

  2. found your channel recently and have never been able to find easy healthy meal ideas and all of these look amazing I’m making the broccoli one now I made your mason jar meals and I’ve been doing a lot of your recipes you make for your son for my kids and they are hits. thanks!

  3. not enough spices in the chili if u served that were i live in Texas they would laugh but im consider weird were i live so i would probably like ur chili but im weird i like a lot of brown sugar in my chili

  4. Not sold on the kale & quinoa soup…looks like it would be a bit bland even with the small amount of herbs. I don’t think my household of 3 males would want me making that, even for the sake of their health lol But!….the other 2 recipes look great! My slow cooker has a permanent place on my kitchen bench in winter too. So many wonderful meals can be had with a slow cooker! Rachel have you ever tried making slow cooker cakes before?!

  5. The kale and quinoa soup sounds really good. My dad wants to make the carrot soup from byron for thanksgiving. I made raw vegan veggie loaf from kate fruit flower.

  6. These recipes look awesome! I need to get my slow cooker out soon! Though I think the broccoli cheese soup is a tad too thick like a sauce more than a soup, maybe due to the raw flour you used in the slurry. I’ll make mine thinner by adding more liquid.
