Great job! How did you get the granite installed that cheap? When we buy it for remodels it is fairly inexpensive but the fabrication (cutting to size, cutting sink hole, edge routing etc...) costs about 3k after the price of the granite for an average size kitchen. I would love to know how you did it for $800! Thanks!

We tried this at the Fermentation Festival in Goleta last weekend - SO YUMMY! I can't wait to find more - it blows away TJs dairy free options by a long shot. I just wish he could get it in more local stores... Hopefully he will eventually get it into Whole Foods and Lazy Acres.

I miss Deschutes Brewery! I lived in Bend for a year and have many good memories spent eating their tasty food and incredible beer! I especially love their Black Butte Porter!

Went to Missoula Montana in September and really enjoyed the Big Sky Brewing's "Moose Drool" and "Trout Slayer". Luckily, I was able to find the Moose Drool here in Santa Barbara at Whole Foods!

How is this diet healthy? Beef and pork are NOT healthy! I think I would take a bowl of whole grains and veggies over bacon any day!

I never worried about more/less nutrition, just about the chemicals!!!!!! I would love to know who funded this study for the college.... Hmmmmm????

Well, my original comment was referring to how one can raise an animal, pet them, get to know them, then kill them.... It is something that perplexes me...
