Do Good Challenge VerticalWhen our family moved from Austin to Grenada, we got rid of a whole bunch of stuff.  Some we sold, but most of it we just gave away.  Being the miser that I am, it was a challenge….but it felt really good to give away the stuff to others who needed it.  I put up a quote once before on this site that I feel sums things up very well.

“The less you own, the less that owns you.”

In today’s challenge, Rob wants us to move in this exact direction.  I personally know the power of this one and I look forward to reading about how doing this makes you feel.

Day 21:  Reduce clutter at home and donate unused stuff to a thrift shop, or give it away on craigslist.com.

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.
