Goodfluence Bicycle Tour: Food Waste


Rob Greenfield Goodfluence

It’s pretty easy to see that Rob Greenfield’s 2014 ride across the United States is becoming a campaign against food waste.  When he kicked things off, Rob planned on promoting all sorts of good things that people could do for themselves, their community, and the world…..but the focus has been on dumpsters and the insane amount of food that goes wasted each day.

Once again, I’ll let Rob give you a quick update and share some upcoming dates with you:

America’s dumpsters are full of perfectly good food while there are 43 million Americans without enough food to put on their dinner table. I’m out to put an end to that. Grocery stores are going to stop dumping and start donating!

This …photo shows one days worth of dumpster diving by just myself and one other person in the Chicago area. And this is only a speckling of what I found. This my friends is the tip of the food waste iceberg.

I’m cycling across America and hosting six more of these events and need help in each city. Spread the word and contact me if you’d like to get involved in your city!


Detroit- August 31st

If you want to be informed on food waste I have got you covered. These 11 films total up to 45 minutes and cover the issue, why it matters, and the solutions both nationally, globally, and for you as an individual. If you aren’t up on this issue you’ll likely be blown away and hopefully decide to do something about it.

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.
