I've realized that I may be sensitive to nightshades. I've also realized that vodka is often made from potatoes. I know that wheat based hard alcohols are usually ok (as far as alcohols go), even for celiacs. The gluten is distilled out. Is the... (more)

I'm aware of the alleged health promoting polyphenols in wine, but I am curious if anyone knows of any studies/information demonstrating potential health promoting properties of hard alcohol? The only real one I can think of is oral hygiene... (more)

This is actually interesting, and I'd want to look into this more for myself, as I'm typically drinking gluten-free hard liquor (bringing a bottle of wine to a party around my age probably wouldn't look right, lol), but I did find this:... (more)

Following paleo, is it so bad? If yes, why? Paleo is known to be free of stupid carbs, so drinking may be a good source of energy and fun :) Correct me if I'm wrong! Paleo drinking envolves only a certain spectre of drinks! Wines, vodkas, and... (more)

I eat paleo because I decided to make better decisions for my body and my health... getting hammered every weekend is a bad life decision IN SO MANY WAYS. But I always thought it was a great decision at the time... and, uh, unlike the previous... (more)

This involves a bit of bathroom talk, bear with me! I've been strict paleo for several months now after figuring out that I'm intolerant to a few foods and after a very alcohol-heavy year at university. I cut out alcohol entirely for around 8... (more)

The tumeric capsules just jumped out at me; how long have you been taking them? I had terrible digestive issues when I tried them (which was unfortunate because they sound great).

Curious about this one, cause I haven't yet developed the taste for Chopin, which is notably distilled from potatoes. Most other vodkas (Grey Goose, Absolut, etc) are distilled from wheat. Anyone know if they contain gluten or not?

Gluten is removed during distillation, so they should be gluten-free unless they have had gluten-containing flavoring added.

I can't seem to find a definitive answer as to whether alcohol increases insulin levels. I've seen some info that suggests alcohol raises your sugar level, and other info that suggests it lowers your sugar level, but nothing about insulin... (more)

The sugar and carbs in alcholic drinks will spike insulin. However, as you proposed, we are only talking about "pure" alcohol. I would be more concerned about alcohol lowering blood glucose levels -- especially for diabetics and those of us... (more)

In a strict sense no alcoholic beverage is Paleo, since paleolithic people did not have access to wine, beer or whisky which are all products of the agricultural age. Nevertheless I know that many people in our own Paleo community do not have... (more)

As of March 2011, FireFly has started making a "Skinny Sweet Tea Vodka." Their vodka is distilled in South Carolina from Grapes and the Tea is sweetened with Stevia. While I know its not Paleo, I loved this stuff before going Paleo and I wouldn't... (more)

Made from grapes? I thought vodka was made from grain or potatoes?
