I was about to start watching your videos, you lost me at Leaf taco. No corn Tortilla, No Taco.

Emily BH says:

I can’t imagine a taco without salsa and guacamole. I would have included some pieces of avocado at minimum. Otherwise, the “meat substitute” and “cream” sauce looks good.

This video was preceded by an advertisement for Roundup. Seems rather perverse.

MIgardener | Simple Organic Gardening & Sustainable Living says:

I am totally digging the Bluthe’s frozen banana t-shirt. Arrested development is the best.

J says:

They both look tan, more so than the normal Nevada glow. She looks very healthy, maybe the vitamin D did the relationship well. Or this is a older video that is a new release.
Either way John should definitely be sticking with Lauren!


How awesome! Subscribed! We LOVE garden tacos!

Peter Cusack says:

Initially i didnt think I’d like this but it looks quite nice. The 10min long hard sell with “steak knife” like options was a bit hard to listen to. The sell overtook the demonstration, which is what i wanted to watch

The Gardein brand of meatless ground meat is excellent. You can even buy it at Walmart. Gardein fish too, but that one is not sold at Walmart. in FL, you can buy the Gardein fish at Publix or even Winn-Dixie.
