Image, Dress Code, and Cycling

Would you show up to a formal business meeting wearing ripped jeans and a t-shirt?  How about showing up to a group road ride wearing baggy shorts and running shoes? It’s funny how even though these kinds of things don’t have an official dress code, we feel as if they do.  But you have...

Clouds of Change

Change is feared by us at times, created by us sometimes, often forced on us…..and sometimes desired. Depending on what the change is, and how it was initiated, it can bring different meanings and emotions.  I’m sure you’ve all read or heard articles on change, so I’m not going to give you some motivational story...

12 Days into 2015

I didn’t watch the ball drop.  I never had a beer, wine, or Champaign.  In fact I never even made it to Midnight.  Here I am sitting 12 whole days into the new year, and to be honest, December 31 now seems far enough away that it’s like it never even happened. I may not...

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
