  1. Is there a reason for the constant kick drum in the background of your videos, I mean Im a musician and you know I find that constant kick a little stressful and distracting when trying to follow what you are doing here. I thought it was the neibour playing some music but no it was you.

  2. I treat myself with these more indulgent salads occasionally, but most of my salads are simply a mix of spinach, baby spring mix, whatever greens I have around, maybe some veggies I've got on-hand, but that's about it: nothing fancy, just good source of fiber and micro-nutrients (and a little bit o' carbs and protein, but not my main source for those).

  3. I made the Thai Shrimp Salad tonight for my wife and I. Dude, this salad is legit! I don’t ever think in my life I’ve ever loved a salad. I mean, I’ve liked salads but holy hell this one was amazing and I could drink that homemade dressing. Also, I may have drank the dressing. Thanks Brian.

  4. Guys– this peanut sauce is incredible. I love this style of sauce but can only find it in a bottle at Trader Joe's and it's not great. This one was so. damn. good.

    Thank you for posting this Bri dog. If you see this, any chance you can make those Thai wraps with all the fresh veggies that come in the clear rice wrapper thing? I'm trying to shed some beef and would love to make those but want them from a YouTube chef that's earned my trust.

    Much love, brother.
