So I assume you've already heard about the Taco Cleanse. And you may even know about the Taco Cleanse Cookbook:
https://tacocleanse.wordpress.com/
Image

But I bet you don't know about the sordid history of it's creators. Sure you can boycott Daiya for once having a picture of meat on their page or Thug Kitchen for cultural appropriation, but just wait until you hear about the hypocrisy of these cleansers.

From the page above you might notice this picture:
Image

That man claims to be a "Fuego level" taco cleanser. Yeah right. You know where else I've seen that picture? A place called "Maximum Salad." That's right, not Maximum Taco, Maximum Salad. And what's worse, he's not just cheating on his tacos with salad, he's cheating on his salad with foods like pizza cake:


And he's not alone. You'll see another Taco Cleanse writer in that video. Let's boycott this "taco cleanse" now. No, better yet, let's buy ALL the copies so that nobody can ever see them and burn them all.

I'm so relieved we got our first boycott started so quickly. Waiting was agony. Please now spread the word that the book is full of oil, salt, and fake food. And that it's too rectangular. And that you'll have to go to the grocery store to buy ingredients before you can make any of the foods.

I assumed this boycott was about the cultural appropriation of an indigenous cleansing ritual, without any benefit to the originating community. Does anyone know if the authors have worked with the originating community or otherwise gotten permission to use their rituals?

Don't forget CHEMICALS. How can you have a cleanse book that's FILLED WITH CHEMICALS!?

A portion of the profits can be made available to any indigenous cultures who perform similar cleanses involving vegan tacos and margaritas.

I'm ashamed to admit the book itself is also made of chemicals.

Okay, but you included that in the prep times, right? Otherwise I call shenanigans.

Obviously, ya'll need to get yourselves on the Taco Cleanse 'cause this thread is rife with negativity. You wouldn't feel this way if you just let Tacos into your life.

Hello, The PPK. I'm the person being put on blast in the original post and co-author of the Taco Cleanse Cookbook, available for pre-order wherever fine books are sold. I'm not sure what a "post punk" is, but I was getting traffic from here and wanted to explain myself. There was a period between our initial 30-day cleanse and writing the cookbook where I was experimenting with different eating modalities. For a while, I settled into what I like to call the "Tacos 'Til 4" diet. I was able to sustain a majority of the taco cleanse benefits and had the flexibility to leave my tortilla warmer at home when dining out socially. I can guarantee that any video or other internet evidence of me eating non-taco foods occurred after 4pm. I'm sure that you "taco police" will be happy to know that I have since decided to listen to my body and it told me to return to the megatacotarian ideal. Thank you for your concern.

Yeah, this sounds like back pedaling to me. I call for a Spiterito eat in!

If you aren't perfect 100% taco cleansing all the time your contributions to the movement mean nothing! I will be unfollowing you on the tweeter and the feedly.

THIS JUST IN:

I have heard from a credible source that fridelight wrote a master's thesis on Yucatecan Gordita Grottos like, only two years before he become a taco cleanse 'enthusiast'.

Taco cleanse? I don't understand. Is this diet based on some kind of washing your body in tacos before eating them? I don't know if I could trust an author that eats food such as pizza cakes. Surely they are the unicorns of the food world?
