Diary of a Juice-Fasting Skinny Bitch

rory freedman 01 Diary of a Juice Fasting Skinny Bitch

Day 1: I always say that the secret of success to healthy eating is being prepared. So I’m kicking myself right now. For months, I’ve known that this would be the week I did a juice fast. Clearly, I had ample time to prepare. And I did, to some degree. I spent the week prior eating exceptionally well. I drank a ton of water. I carefully plotted what I would eat so that my house would be nearly barren when day one arrived. What I neglected to do: get a juicer. And buy fruits and vegetables to juice. Duh. I had arranged with my neighbor to borrow his juicer.

But when I called to get it today, he was busy, so he said he’d drop it off later while I was at the gym. (We have keys to each other’s apartment.) So I went to the gym, had a great workout. Started talking to this cute guy. And before I knew it, it was like three o’clock, and I’d yet to have anything but water. The cute guy offered to buy me a juice (and to take me out to dinner). They had fresh squeezed orange and carrot juices on the menu. But they were out of oranges and carrots! Now, I was in trouble. I knew that by the time I walked home, got my car and went to Whole Foods, and got back with all my fruits and veggies, it would be at least an hour. Fuck! So not prepared. After grilling the poor juice girl, I settled on a smoothie. It was made with frozen mango and pineapple and water. It tasted good, but frozen fruit smoothies weren’t exactly what I was after when I decided to do my fast. I was a little disappointed in myself, but remembered this juice fast wasn’t about being perfect. But I vowed that from that point on, I’d be prepared. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos

Ellen DeGeneres Breaks Her Drone Fever | Interview With Katie Couric

0 Ellen DeGeneres Breaks Her Drone Fever | Interview With Katie Couric

I knew Ellen DeGeneres was a pretty cool woman and had broken down unbelievable barriers to become one of America’s most like celebrities. But I had no idea she had gone Vegan. She explains to Katie Couric, how she just couldn’t fool herself any longer. She loves animals and the industrial food system just doesn’t. She even drops our friends Rory’s book (skinny bitch) as one of the sources of why she chose to become a vegan.

Also, she talks about a film everyone should see called Earthlings (watch it now free). A beautiful produced documentary narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. I must warn you, this film will change your view of Flesh Monkies, and not in a good way. Unless you yourself are deeply infected with Drone Fever, that is. If you think you might be infected, look for someone young to watch the film with. Someone maybe under the age of 7, you know someone who hasn’t been infected yet. Checkout their emotional response and try to mimic it if you can. If you start to feel real emotions, then you may just be on the road to recovery! Congratulations to you and congratulations to Ellen. She has just now became my favorite American Gay Woman Celebrity. Good bye Lindsay Lohan, hello Ellen! You rule girl!

Iced Vanilla Ginger Cashew Espresso By Bad Monkie V Blak

I am sitting here a whole day after I started this post and I am wondering what just happened. I started my day off, thinking about you guys honestly, I was thinking, okay I need to share my “G” lifestyle daily from this point on. Get out in front of the camera, you can do it, I keep telling myself. I am working up to it, believe me. So, I said to myself what can I share today… hmmm, I know, how about my addiction or dare I say love for espresso. I know, I know, it’s killing my alkaline ph balance or something like that. I hear you Brendan and Tim. You guys make me look bad, being all in shape and perfect fit “G” super guys. I know, I am going to stop soon or at least reduce how much I take in per month. More green juicing I promise. But for now, I am still drinking organic espresso, which our friends at Peet’s Coffee sent over to us. They are like freaking pushers… right (jj) It’s sooooo good, I promise you. One shot and you just want to drop to your knees. They have a complete green organic coffee roasting place here in California I believe. Anyways, they sent over so much espresso, I just can’t help myself but to dig in and brew it up. I know bad monkie.

Back to my story. I am out here in the desert and it is so hot, 116 degrees if you can believe that. I have a new place, which I will show you in another post and I haven’t turned on the air once and believe it or not I am fine. All the windows and doors are open in the front and back of the house and the air is flowing through and keeping it very… hawaii caribbean like. But with that said, you still need something cool to sip on, so my cool morning drink of choice is the iced espresso with a twist of flavors. I have been making it almost every day along with a few other frozen alcohol based drinks, which I will also get into in some future post. I know TIM / BRENDAN / RORY, I hear you.. Bad Monkie!

Skinny Bitch Says, Don’t Believe the Hype

rory freedman 09 Skinny Bitch Says, Don’t Believe the Hype

I get a lot of emails from readers asking various diet and health questions. Some are from people who are already in “the know” and are familiar with healthier ways of eating. Others are from people who eat shit full-time and are inspired to overhaul their diets. Surprisingly, though, it’s the former group of people who seem to be the most confused when it comes to milk.

We can all agree that pasteurized milk sucks and has no place in our diet. (If this is news to you, park your ass in a bookstore and read chapter five of Skinny Bitch.) But for some people, the waters get muddy on the issue of raw milk. Yes, pasteurization destroys beneficial vitamins and enzymes, makes milk harder to digest, and even creates free radicals. Raw milk is clearly a better choice. And if you’re a baby cow, you should insist on drinking your milk raw. But if you’re a human and you’re old enough to read this, you shouldn’t be drinking milk, period.

Mother Nature knew what she was doing. She created all mammals with the ability to nurse their young. And that’s what all mammals do. And when their offspring reaches a certain age, they’re weaned off milk and they eat solid food. Not one goes back for milk after that last serving! Not one. You certainly don’t go kicking down your mom’s door for breast milk, do you? So why in the hell would you think you need the milk of a cow or goat any other animal now, as an adult? Why would you think it’s good for you?

It’s About Time Someone Wrote A Book About Us! Thanking The Monkey

thankthemonkey 01 Its About Time Someone Wrote A Book About Us! Thanking The Monkey

Okay so the book really isn’t about the G Living Monkies or even about me the Monkie Dark Overlord, but it should be. I am the darkest, greenest, juice guzzling monkie on the planet. I need a little praise too. I am just joking, I would guzzle green juice if anyone praised me or not. I am just that kind of Monkie.

The book (Thanking The Monkey) is by author Karen Dawn and is described as a book about Rethinking The Way We Treat Animals. No, it’s not a scared straight kind of book, with night video images of lab animals with their brains attached to shock devices. I think its a lighter fun type of book, in the same vain as the Skinny Bitch Books by my friend Rory Freedman. Her books are still on the NYTimes Best Seller List, how cool is that! Now to be honest, I haven’t seen the book yet, I just stumbled across a video on Youtube, which I posted below. In the video all the people I know are in the video and they even used my photo of Darrell Hanna with the rescued calves from Animal Acres.

Soon, I will go out and get a copy of the book and report back what I think of it. But until I get one, here is the official book description from the publisher and if you get a copy before me, post your thoughts below!

Media Watch | G/Woman Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler Tells Donald Tump I Quit!

shanna moakler 01 Media Watch | G/Woman Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler Tells Donald Tump I Quit!

Normally G Living wouldn’t touch this story with a 10 foot carrot! But for some reason, tons of people are searching for Shanna Moakler and finding G Living. Googlers are finding our story about Shanna going Vegan after reading Skinny Bitch! So, we thought we should shine a G / Light on this G/Woman. It’s the least we can do!

Who is Shanna and why are people searching for her? Well, it turns out this former Miss USA / Playboy Centerfold was working for the Miss California Pageant as the Co-Executive Director. That is until a few hours ago. She has just quit in protest! Oh no, is what your saying right! What is the big deal, who cares? We don’t really know who cares, but here is why she quit.

She is mad at the Donald! Yes, Donald Trump, the YOUR FIRED, Mega Combover Guy Super Hero. He owns the pageant and will not de-crown Miss California, the anti-gay air head Carrie Prejean. At a news conference on Monday, Moakler accused Prejean of violating her contract with the Miss California Pageant and said she should lose the crown. Moakler thinks because Prejean broke the rules and lied about posing nude, amongst other things, she should no longer be Miss California.

Sarah Backhouse | 30-Day G / Diet Experiment

sarahbackhouse gdiet 02 Sarah Backhouse | 30 Day G / Diet Experiment

I’m a pescatarian; I’ve not consumed meat for over 20 years — and with the exception of yogurt and the odd mouthful of ricotta cheese, I don’t do dairy. You know what this means? That I’m some sushi and a Yoplait away from a being a… vegan.

Ordinarily the “V” word is a no-go word at our modern, green lifestyle network. And I know why. “Vegan” just sounds scary — hardcore and militant, yet at the same time conjuring up images of sprouts, matted hair and bad hygiene. Or maybe that’s just me. Here at G Living we call everything Plant Based, because that is all Vegan really means.

E! Entertainment features Organic Raw Food

rawfoods1 E! Entertainment features Organic Raw Food

E! Entertainment recently did a piece on raw food diets — of course it’s a crappy video, full of cheesy music and stiff voice-overs that make it sound more like an infomercial then a news segment. It’s hard to believe it’s from a major network like E! Entertainment — actually, on second thought — it’s not hard to believe at all. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos
