Big Daddy’s Shows it’s Big Heart


Big Daddy’s Austin is selling Green Shamrocks for $1 and Gold Shamrocks for $5 in an effort to raise money for Chloe Spanjerberg and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

With one of our sponsors involved in something so awesome, we just had to jump in and help promote this as much as we can.  As you know, I’m already a fan of Big Daddy’s restaurant here in Austin and totally love their food…I can still taste the goodness of that 3 pound veggie burger.  It’s so great to see them involved in this, and to be raising funds for Chloe.

Chloe lives in Austin with her parents, two sisters, and brother.  She attends Canyon Ridge Middle School and enjoys all the things that a 14 year old girl should enjoy.  She has been diagnosed with charcot-marie-tooth and the goal is to raise at least $800 to send her to summer camp.  All of the proceeds from the Shamrock fundraising campaign go directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and to Chloe.

If you’re living here or will be in Austin this month, I invite you to stop by Big Daddy’s for some great food and help support this fantastic campaign.

      If we can swing it, we’ll have to head over there for a veggie burger while you’re in town.

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.


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.
