i'd say it's okay to drink if you are low on carbs one day and need a little more or you are in a pinch and don't have access to any fresh foods or meat. so really, a once in a while thing. if i drink juice, i prepare it myself.
I'm a newbie to Paleo - and I struggle to drink plain water. I enjoy Mio added to my water - but I'm guessing this is NOT Paleo. I know I can add fruit to water for flavor etc, and that eventually as I wean off the "sugary" flavor of Mio and... (more)
Filtered Water, mineral water, tea, coffee, raw milk if you can get it and it doesn't have bad effects, kombucha, bone broth, NorCal Margaritas, whiskey, burbon, vodka, tequila, blood of an animal you've hunted down. :)
I saw the documentary below that highlights that although sugar does not contain as much calories as fat, it has such an impact on the chemistry of our body and our way of dealing with incoming calories that is it one the leading causes of... (more)
I'm getting bored with drinking herbal tea every day and I'm trying to cut back on my coffee/caffeine intake (as well as the milk) so I'm on the look out for any suggestions for other types of hot drinks. They need to be Paleo, i.e. nutritious... (more)
Try some Yerba Mate. Lower caffeine than coffee, great flavor, and smooth, long-lasting buzz. Been drinking this stuff for years and I love it. Can be bought from most organic grocers now, or online from such companies as Guayaki.
Hey guys i am having my stag doo next weekend and am going to drink alcohol as a treat as i havent done for 3 months and want to make the most of this 1 night! Are there any good cocktail recipies out there which are reasonably... (more)
I'm trying to find a substitute for crystal light lemonade for my kids. They drink a good bit of water and coconut milk, but go through tons of lemonade. I'm thinking if the sweetener in these drinks can cause behavior issues and is just plain... (more)
I was wondering if anyone had any good drinks to order while at a bar that would still be considered Paleo safe. A buddy of mine recommended sticking to tequila so I usually get tequila with some sort of juice combinations. Do you guys know of... (more)
I've just taken up the Paleo Diet and wanted to know what I could drink to have the best possible health. Right now I've just been drinking water for almost a month. I'm not looking for safe drinks but ones that help or increase my health,... (more)
Water - stick with it.
So I am almost 23, just graduated college in May and have gone from being a party animal to eating paleo for the past 5 months and drinking once on a blue moon. Some of my friends are visiting this weekend and heck, I've been stressed out from... (more)
I get so bored on just water and coffee but will not drink soda. Today I got carbonated water, dumped out 1/4 of the can, and poured in a bit of POM juice. It is delicious and a great soda substitute. Sure the 1/5 cup of POM isnt the healthiest... (more)
I really struggle when it comes to hot drinks on this diet. I am following a version of the Autoimmune Protocol so coffee is out for me. I am not a fan of green tea either, just can't stomach the stuff. I am looking for Autoimmune Protocol... (more)
I have noticed whenever I drink kombucha, that I end up getting a bit of a headache afterwards. Any one know why this would be? I drink GT's Organic Raw so there is only 4 grams of sugar.
Possibly histamine intolerance.
Naked, VitaCoco, ZICO, Amy & Brian - with pulp, no pulp. I grew up on and island in the pacific, eating fresh coconuts whenever possible. When I moved to the continental US, I missed it - and then a few years ago, it seems like coconut burst... (more)
I am currently doing an intermittent fasting where I do not eat anything until WHEN (When Hunger Ensues Naturally). I find it easier to eat this way and just eat whenever I actually feel hungry. However, yesterday I hadn't eaten for 16 hours and... (more)
Interesting programme on BBC1 on Sports Dink lucazade, Protein drinks and sports shoes? whats everyone opinions? I think smash a huge black coffee and drink water #back2basics, water, squash and salt, that is all most sports hydration drinks are! (more)
So, as I was pulling up to get my latte this morning, the baristas were handing out samples of their new refreshers. I thought it tasted pretty good. I didn't feel like I was pouring straight cane syrup down my throat. I've been looking at the... (more)
Before Paleo, I was introduced to barley tea by a foreign exchange student my family hosted. It's basically just roasted whole barley, steeped like tea. Served iced, it's really nice - it kind of tastes like weak coffee without the bitterness or... (more)
I don't know if this would suffice for everyone as a "replacement," but I switched over to strongly brewed dandelion root tea with personally satisfying results. For some people, decaf coffee also satisfies the urge.
Ok, so I've been enjoying the benefits of a paleo-style diet for a while. I foray into more neolithic diet only in a few areas. The first of those is dairy. I do eat some fermented dairy (raw-milk yogurt, Greek-style), cheese (mostly hard... (more)
I drink it sometimes as a substitute for kombucha actually. Yeah, I caught the kombucha addiction after giving up soda. Kevita is a much better choice since it has about half the carbs of most brands of kombucha. It's definitely better than soda,... (more)
i know coffee isnt paleo, but i drink it anyway, in my pre paleo days I used to drink ALOT of iced coffee drinks( usually with soy milk and later on i switched toregular milk) , the type you get from places like starbucks that tend to be sugar... (more)
I like to enjoy a few alcoholic drinks on the weekends. I have been doing NorCal Margaritas for a couple months. I was just wondering if anyone has played around with other Paleo alcoholic beverages???
I have some below that I like plain or liquored up for in-home or taken to parties. I gave the booze options that will work best. You literally can puree any fruit, add an aromatic, cut with a little water and add booze or seltzer to most anything... (more)
Now I know nothing beats the sweet nectar of the gods (water), but I gotta admit I wouldn't mind switching up for a water like beverage that isn't coconut water and isn't terribly unhealthy. So they have a website and a lot of interesting flavors... (more)
But.. but.. but.. you GUYS! Why don't you just make your own instead of purchasing this stuff? Then you know what you're getting as it has your fingerprints all over it. I keep mason jars of different tea in the fridge - green, black, herbal, and... (more)
Lately, I've been drinking a latte made with grass-fed heavy cream, espresso, and cinnamon, on an almost daily basis (about a large cups worth). Tastes good, and keeps morning hunger pangs away until I'm settled in at work. Any reason I should cut... (more)
Ok, I'm eating paleo, have lost a lot of weight without too much difficulty and more importantly feel much better, have introduced IF into my week, again with positive effects. However, I like diet coke. Not gallons but at least a can a day,... (more)
Obviously, most things in Starbucks are not paleo. A quick Google search finds food options at Starbucks that can be considered paleo if eaten occasionally (e.g. bananas, roasted nuts), but not much info. on their drinks (other than simple teas).... (more)
