Make it Happen Monday: Fight For World Happiness

                In a world full of happy people, I’d never have a concern. Never wondering how that child feels. Never wondering why there isn’t more love. A friend would help a friend.  A stranger would help a stranger. Every person would show kindness to the person sitting...

Make it Happen Monday: Butterfly Effect

I don’t mean to get all scientific on you here….but bare with me for a second.  The butterfly effect is a phrase which encapsulates the more technical notion of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in chaos theory.  Small variations of the initial condition of a nonlinear dynamical system may produce large variations in the...

Make it Happen Monday: Money Man

We’re bred in a world that evolves around the economic control known as the dollar.  Because of this, far too many of us chase after it all our lives…..all the while missing out on some really great moments in life.  We see the pursuit of money as a necessity in order to obtain that...

Make it Happen Monday: Keep Playing the Game

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.  That line comes from a movie called “Cinderella Story”, which my Daughter Kassi used to watch all the time.  It’s been a while since she watched it, but that quote has always sort of just stuck with me. Sometimes our fears...

Make it Happen Monday: The Simple Life

Simple Living in a Not So Simple Society Is it possible to live “the simple life”?  Better yet….is it possible to live the simple life and be happy?  I pose that question to you, but I’m going to also answer it in my semi-professional opinion. We hear about simplifying our lives all the time….from...

Make it Happen Monday: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

Other than my Family, cycling is about the only thing I’ve remained committed to over the years.  Since I took up road cycling 8 years ago, I’ve had a Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop attitude to pretty much everything about it. On an overall level, cycling has become a huge part of my life and...

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.
