What should I drink for breakfast instead of juice?

I take supplement iron pills for breakfast and the only way (that I know and have used) is to drink it with a tiny box of juice, so I can't taste it. I have tried a few times to drink water, but I just don't like water in the morning (is that weird?). I can't drink milk or smoothies (because there a lots of fruits in them that I have been reading I shouldn't eat, even though paleoers disagree), so what can I drink?

Or coffee with coconut milk in it, if you are in the coffee camp.

are you able to change your brand of iron pills for capsules instead of tablets...?

or, if the pills are small enough (or can be broken), you can put them inside a gelcap...you can buy empty gelatin capsules in various capsule sizes. google empty gelatin capsules

When you say you take iron pills for breakfast, are you implying that you don't eat food with it? You just wake up and start eating bits of metal and sugar to start the day? Why not eat some nutritious ferrous food?

those decades of marketing about juice for breakfast are pretty ingrained, aren't they? :)

water, coconut milk, coconut water, coffee, tea... and that glass of kombucha sounds good!

Almond Milk, delicious and creamy. kinda coats your mouth, it's what I use to take my supplements because I have bad gag reflexes.

Black Irish tea, no sugar. Side effect: may put hair on your chest.

I take my pills with cream. In the morning I am known to drink gazpacho made from my garden vegies.

I make my own cherry kombucha. It's low in residual sugar, tasty, and probiotic. It's great for taking supplements with.

Dear @staceychev,

I don't know about you, but when I have to take a nasty pill, I always take it with some hot tea. Black tea is great to drink in the mornings as it gives you a caffeine boost to get you going and there are even some paleo sweeteners that you can use in your tea! (Ex, Liquid stevia {my personal preference}, Xylitol, Truvia, even a little bit of honey!) You can also use a nice lemon or mango flavored tea. It would have the kind of flavor you are used to but the fruit-flavored teas don't actually have any sugars or carbs in them! So no worries there. If you aren't a tea drinker, maybe some coffee made with coconut or almond milk?

Hope this helps!

Have you tried warm water with lemon? When my system was out of whack--before paleo--I couldn't stand water in the morning either (it would make me nauseous and taste "off"), but somehow making it not cold and adding some citrus to it made it palatable.
