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)
Is drinking carbonated water detrimental to health? It seems like it would be a great, refreshing alternative to regular drinking water, but I'm inclined to think that our bodies did not evolve around it at all. Thoughts?
I have a relative following paleo who has severe gingivitis. She's been doing paleo 80/20 for about 8 months and while it has gotten better, her gums still bleed when flossing. I suspect that her "cheats" and some relatively sugary/acidic drinks... (more)
Following on from the discussion of things it's safe to drink a lot of what do people think about rooibos (red) tea? I used to drink a lot of it, typically brewed the traditional way, i.e. as strong as it can possibly be. Being full of... (more)
Maybe you should ask this as a question about polyphenols in general. I tend to think along the lines of Stephen: (not using the quote feature to preserve the links) As a little side note, polyphenols are those wonderful plant antioxidants that... (more)
It can be argued that alcoholic beverages aren't part of the original human diet but, on the other hand, they can be viewed as an essential part of a contemporary diet. What are your favourite paleo-friendly drinks? I would personally list Dry... (more)
I'll admit it. Paleo 2.5 years. Still love Snapple Peach and Raspberry. But it's so much sugar! The only other beverages I drink are water, coffee with cream, and once in a while teas or wine. I've tried making ice tea to replace my favorite... (more)
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. :)
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 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.
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
