While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?

Eat whatever works for you. There is no rule that your breakfast must contain meat or eggs.

If you don't have a sulphite sensitivity (and in truth, it's a minority who do), then polish off the bottle. If the idea bothers you, don't buy it again. Sulphite sensitivity isn't widespread.
