Unless youâ€™re Christy Turlington, Woody Harrelson, or Matthew Kenney, you might not know who Melvin Major (pictured) is. But this juicer to the stars, and to hordes of wheatgrass-chugging fans, is a minor celebrity in his own right. For nine years, heâ€™s Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
I recently came across a new living food show called Alive! It says that it’s coming this Fall, but I have no idea where or what channel it will be on. You can view short preview clips of the show on the website. It looks like it’s going to be divided in segments to be a variety show including raw and living food preperation with celebrity chef and host Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
I found this article in the Washington Post. It’s a little old but still relevant.

G Living caught up with a different kind of EV Car maker, the kind that builds the Electric Cars in his own garage. His name is Gadget and we met him During the Santa Monica Alt Car Expo last December, he and his crew ripped out the guts of this Triumph and tried to convert the car in two days. We will post the interview soon. But until the show goes up, here is a summary of an L.A. Times article on Gadget and his company called Left Coast Electric.
(via L.A. Times) When he finishes outfitting the Olds with a DC motor, enough serial-wired, nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) D-cell batteries to produce 340,000 watts of power, and a computerized controller to connect the two, Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

As you may have noticed I took a bit of a hiatus from Bloging. Busy times. But, now I’m back! Really.
The last few months have been spent finishing up my book, The Thrive Diet. It launches in Canada on March 24th. As far as the US and UK, those publishing rights are being shopped around by my Canadian publisher, Penguin. Once I know US and UK launch dates, I’ll pass them on.
The Thieve Diet “place holder” site is now up. www.thrivediet.com. Full version to come in March.
Over the course of my next few entries, I’ll provide specific details for each of my talks and appearances. For now, here’s a rough guide:
2007 is shaping up to be a busy, perhaps even monumental year. Not just for me but for G Living and the “G” movement in general. For us all.
For me, it starts with the event that will launch my Canadian book tour in Montreal. I’ll be speaking at Youth Action: A YOUTH SUMMIT ON CLIMATE CHANGE. The Thrive Diet includes a chapter called The Thrive Diet and a Healthy Environment. It details the connection that food, its production, processing and delivery has to the environment. It explains how The Thrive Diet (a plant-based one) is environmentally superior to animal-product-rich ones. Since the food business and industries directly linked to it use more energy, and therefore oil, than any other industry, switching to a plant-based diet is the greatest thing each of us as individuals can do to help slow global warning. This is what my talk will be about. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

If you watch G Living Live, you’ll remember a creative, new moving box rental company called earthfriendlymoving.com which created a way to convert trash from landfills into the first zero waste moving system in America! Among their inventions: the Recopack, a recycled, ecological, plastic moving box that comes in five sizes; a unique delivery pallet (made out of 500 baby diapers); Geami packing paper (from recycled cardboard); and tree food packing peanuts (made from recycled paper sludge and organic compounds).

Now our green friends at earthfriendlymoving.com have come up with a way to use all-veggie-oil delivery trucks Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
