Nutrition Tip January 22 2011


Muffins/Bagels, and other baked favorites

Think you’re doing yourself a favor by choosing the muffin instead of the donut (and no, I’m not recommending the donut)?  Many muffins and even bagels pack more calories than a donut (400+ calories).  And, made with refined flours, they pack it right on your butt, hips, and belly.

    What?! I’m not liking this very much. What if I only eat the top half? Hehe.

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.
