The Green Revolution.

9 Feb


Get fit and start a revolution? Sounds like a good idea to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Meet The Green Revolution, a way to bring your love for fitness and the planet together. This awesome company has come up with a product that helps convert the energy you expend at the gym into clean, renewable energy we can all use. Best thing is, this new energy we create does not increase our greenhouse gas levels.

If your gym hooked up its spin bikes with The Green Revolution technology and ran 8 classes a day on those bikes, they could in turn power the average home for 1 year. Not bad, huh? And since every bike shows you what’s going on, while you are peddling away you can actually track your energy expenditure. A very cool way to watch your carbon footprint and pants size, decrease. The Green Revolution also happens to work on every brand of spin bike so there is no need for gym’s to go out and buy all new equipment, this is important because gym equipment does not come cheap.

So far The Green Revolution is only available in the US and Canada. Over the next year they hope to be branched out into more markets, I think it is safe to say, this will probably be happening. Below is the link to their website, it has tons of info for the public, for investors and for those institutions looking to add The Green Revolution to their situation.



Subway, Eat Veg?

14 Oct

So I heard this rumor over the summer that Subway way test running a vegan menu at some of its locations in the DC area. Turns out that this rumor was true and not only were the vegan options a hit, they sold out. As in none left, experiment over.

This little venture into the world of vegan eating leaves one to wonder, what’s the hold up? And why the heck did we not ALL get to taste the veg goodies they unveiled? Subway gave the people of the DC Metro region a taste of their new Sweet Riblet, Malibu Greek and their Italian Black Bean sandwiches and the country wants more.

The good news is you can make your voice heard. Below I have attached a link to a couple of things, first link is about this post, second link is where you click to add your comments so Subway can read them. Encourage Subway to bring vegan offerings to all their restaurants and let the change begin.

Sure McDonalds going veg in India is rad but Subway having more veg offerings here in the US is even bigger simply because Subway is bigger. Subway has more locations in American than McDonalds, so this is something we all really need to get behind.

Restaurant Review: Hogtown Vegan.

2 Oct

Being veg in the city of Toronto is a gift, a blessing and a true culinary adventure no veg head should miss. So this makes it no surprise that Hogtown Vegan is one of the tastiest ways to get your vegan comfort food on, ever. With things like ‘unchicken’ burgers, man n ‘cheese’ and the dishes of all dishes, unchicken and waffles, there is just no way one can go wrong. One can defiantly keep it healthy at Hogtown, no doubt, but the both times I have been there I just threw caution to the wind. Life is too short and I work out too hard to not eat unchicken n waffles when they present themselves. Or vegan french toast for that matter, which Hogtown also offers ๐Ÿ˜‰

This cash only establishment is open for dinner 7 days a week and offers their amazing brunch on the weekends. Dinner is Monday-Friday from 5pm-11pm. Saturday from 4pm-11pm and Sunday from 4pm-10pm. Brunch is served both Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm. Hogtown Vegan is located at 834 Bloor St. W. Toronto, Ontario. If you are in the mood for the ultimate vegan comfort food, you MUST hit up Hogtown when you are in Toronto. Brunch and Dinner menus do vary a bit.
