Loving the Bite: Green Berry Smoothie

The last few weeks I’ve been neglecting breakfast and lunch in favor of dinner recipes.  Well, breakfast, it’s your turn again.  While I’m a fan of eggs, oats, and Greek yogurt for breakfasts, a smoothie works well, too.   And, since you can always make extra batches and refrigerate (for a day) or freeze them...

Loving the Bite: Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

No matter how you pronounce it, the Tomato is a very special food.  Just think of how many of your favorite dishes would simply not exist, or not be the same, without it.  Pizza, chili, and salsa just to name a few.  The tomato goes far beyond taste, though.  It has super-nutrients that are...

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.
