Is POM Wonderful (100% pomegranate juice) ok to drink on the Paleo diet?

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.

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. :)

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.

Similar to above, I squeeze an entire lime into a pint glass and then fill the rest of the glass with refrigerated soda water and stir well. Then there is the occasional obvious "tweak" of adding a shot or two of pure agave tequila from the freezer. (more)
