The Happy News

I don’t watch or follow the news.  Don’t care for it.  Don’t honestly feel like I need to know what the news shows want me to see.  But that’s just me. The idea of news got me thinking about what the top inspirational stories or “happy news” for 2016 have been so far.  A...

You Don’t Know What I’m Going Through

We walk through our lives crossing paths with random people, taking them in, and often making opinions and judgments on what we see. We laugh, scoff, shake our heads….and worse.  Yeah, I’m guilty of this all too often. But have you ever found yourself on the other end of the story? Most of the...

Why is the Baby Rasta so Popular?

You don’t have to spend much time in Grenada before you start seeing the “Baby Rasta” sticker on the back of cars and busses.  If you’re like me, seeing it all over the place makes you wonder what the significance is of this popular image.  Yeah, that’s exactly what I’ve been thinking since arriving...

Just Breathe and Appreciate

Last week I had the simple task of going out to buy black beans and kidney beans so we could make vegetarian chili for supper.  Seems so easy, but when you’re living in Grenada sometimes the simplest of tasks can be a little too complex. The closest grocery store is about 3 miles from...

I’ve been on a major personal development frenzy for the past couple weeks.  I’ve had some incredible insights, gained some knowledge, and the realization that there are still more areas to work on.

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.
