Are Humans Herbivores??

Good Day Revolutionaries!  Today we found ourselves doubting if humans should be eating meat.  We got into a nice debate today about how humans should eat to benefit their bodies best.  Most of us on this planet are Omnivores(we eat both meat and veggies).  Some people are vegetarian and others have attempted to eat only meat, but that has not gone very well.  We were shown the article below and most of us were blown away when we found out some of the differences between carnivores and herbivores.  Especially the info on how much longer the human intestine is compared to the meat eaters of the wild.

Are You Eating Horse? You Might Be Soon

This does not look good!  In some parts of the world horse is considered a delicacy.  Here in the USA it is illegal to slaughter horses for use in food.  That looks like it might be changing.  On April 8, a subcommittee in the Tennessee House approved a horse slaughter bill 7-6. A week earlier, the Missouri House approved 91-61 bill HR1741. The bill hasn't yet been scheduled for the Senate calendar.  If some people have their way you might have to double check the fast food burger, it could be Mr. Ed in there.  Lets hope this does not hit the Senate Floor!

Ride Your Bike and Create Electricity

Since the Revolution Greens Crew is getting more and more pumped about doing triathlons and maintaining great health, we couldnt help but post this story! Most triathletes find it hard to bike while traveling, but here's a hotel that will reward you for your training and being green!
The Crowne Plaza hotel in Denmark will pay guest with a $36 meal voucher for every 10 watt-hours of electricity they generate.
If you are wondering that's about 15 minutes of spinning on the stationary bike.
"Many of our visitors are business people who enjoy going to the gym. There might be the odd person who will cycle just to get a free meal, but I don't think people will exploit the initiative overall," hotel spokeswoman Frederikke Toemmergaard told the BBC News.

As we were shooting around the world wide web we stumbled upon a competition to develop Apps to make kids healthier.  The Apps for Healthy Kids competition is a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. Apps for Healthy Kids challenges software developers, game designers, students, and other innovators to develop fun and engaging software tools and games that drive children, especially “tweens” (ages 9-12) – directly or through their parents – to eat better and be more physically active.   This looks like a great way to earn $60,000.

How high was the guy who created the Double Down for KFC.  We got our hands on one and check out the picture above.  Why would any one want to put that in their bodies.  We bet we could actually hear someone getting fatter while they eat it.  In all seriousness it looks like someone gave a kindergarten class a bunch of left overs and asked them to make something.  Sheesh!  You should have to be at least 18 with a valid I.D to purchase one.  Come on fast food we can do better than this! Why not make people healthier!

P.S. We did not eat this.  It looked gross!

Here We Go... The Start of Revolution Greens Real Food Bars

Good Day Revolutionaries!  Yesterday we had a tasty idea and we decided to see if it was possible.  We wanted to create our own Food Bar.  We wanted the bars to be all organic and use as may superfoods as possible.  We hopped in the test kitchen and started creating.  The ingredients we included were Acai, Blueberry, Goji, Almonds, Banana, Shredded Coconut, Organic Chocolate, Agave Syrup, Soy Milk and some other basic cooking ingredients.  Well it worked.  We are happy with the first batch, but we think we can do better.  What ingredients do you want in yours.  Let us know an we will send you some!!  Keep any eye out for these in the future.

Top Foods For Triathlon Training

Part of the Revolution Greens Nation is getting ready for the Nautica South Beach Triathlon.  It got us looking for the best food to feed our triathlete in training bodies.  Our friends at gave us an easy to read description of what our bodies will need up to and after the event.  Check out the event here...

If you only follow 10 rules of diet for maximum health and performance, follow these 10.

Imagine you have an identical twin, also a triathlete, with whom you train every day. The only difference between the two of you is that your diet and sports nutrition habits are careless, whereas your twin’s diet and sports nutrition habits are based on sound principles and the latest knowledge. Who will have better results? 

Science tells us: Your twin will perform better in workouts, recover faster from workouts, gain fitness faster, develop a leaner body composition, be able to handle a heavier training load, get sick less often, suffer fewer injuries, and not least of all, kick your butt in races! And if you don’t wise up and start eating and drinking as your twin does, he or she will continue training and racing strong long after age slows you down, and will even outlive you. That’s how important it is to learn how to fuel your body properly.

So, how do you feel your body properly? It can all be boiled down to the following 10 tips.
