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.
Folks, I am about to start and Paleo regime and wanted to ask about decaf coffee. I have been drinking decaf for well over 10 years now and it is one drink I really enjoy. I also drink sugar free orange squash (but not much) but these are the... (more)
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.
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 recently been getting into drinking the occasional cup of tea here and there mainly green tea but I've been trying many others as well. For me it's nice and relaxing to have a nice cup of tea as well as a nice beverage change other then... (more)
Is there anything wrong if you say drink one koma unwind sugar free or serenity drink at the end of the day how far off balance would you be. I love the relaxing effect? Or is there a more paleo okay anti energy drink with melatonin and other etc.... (more)
There is always sleepy time tea, which doesn't have melatonin, but can calm you down. Also Natural Calm magnesium supplement is great for relaxing, but is also good for your muscles and digestion.
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)
So I've seen posts about food for a birthday party but not about drinks for a party. We are new to paleo, though we've lived low carb for awhile. My son is going to be 1 in January and we are planning a lunch party for him. Everyone else at the... (more)
How old is your son? Over 21: Hard cider Under 21: Hard cider Under 21 and cops around: Martinelli's cider Edit: I see he's going to be 1. Answer still stands.
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)
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)
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)
I have dropped only 6.5 lb in under 30 days. At first, I was eating too many carbs. As of this past week I have lowered my carbs but I just messed up yesterday because I had about 3/4c broccoli. I forgot to check its carb count! What did you do... (more)
