TEDx-How-to-End-the-Food-Waste-Fiasco-776x415

I’ve been telling you about an amazing individual named Rob Greenfield for the past couple of years now, and you’ve definitely heard me refer to him as “the Gandhi of our time“.  Well, this cycling friend of mine continues to spread his good word, and he just recently completed a Ted Talk that I want to share with you.

So if you dig cool people who ride bikes, Ted Talks, and good things being done for our world…..then you’re going to love Rob’s talk as much as I do.  He’s got a great attitude, is a well spoken dude, and has information that all of us need to hear.

I encourage you to #makeithappen and watch Rob’s talk, and then help promote the food waste fiasco by getting grocery stores to #donatenotdump.

Oh, and if you’d like to read more about Rob Greenfield’s cycling adventure across the United States and all the cool things he’s done….be sure to grab his book called Dude Making a Difference.

Enjoy Your Ride

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.
