Paleo Drinks!

Hey guys. A lot of people have asked me what us Paleos drink. Which struck me as a strange question…

You see, Paleos enjoy mainly unprocessed food. Meat, veggies, and fruit/nuts too. No grains, or chemically processed food. As you can tell from my recipe posts, it’s not like we’re suffering, haha. It’s not restrictive at all, and I feel better than I ever have.

Especially in summer, I see a lot of people rely heavily on soda drinks, which sadly, is just rotting your teeth, along with a lot of other things.

So I thought i’d post what we drink in summer. Don’t get me wrong, I do partake in the occasional energy drink, when I have no time to cook something, (or given a dearth of better options, like good coffee) but mostly, I stick to the stuff below.

Coconut water

OMG. This stuff is the most refreshing stuff ever. Out of a fresh coconut, it’s delicious, and it’s like nature’s own Powerade, without the chemical content.

Vitamins: C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, B6, Folate & Choline.

As well as those vitamins, there’s these minerals as well: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc, Copper, Magnese & Selenium.

Phew, what a superfood! Did i mention it has some protein too? It’s also fun cracking them open. You can get some decent brands that are packaged, I love ‘O.N.E’ coconut water, it comes in cartons. I’ve found other brands that came in cans, but it tasted like metal.

Fruit Juice

I actually drink very little fruit juice now, and only pure stuff. It’s just hard to find stuff that hasn’t got additives unless you juice it yourself.

Fruit juice is fine for you, just don’t drink it constantly. Even though it’s natural sugar, it’s still sugar. Don’t be fooled by the fact that it’s natural – your body treats most sugars the same way.

Almond milk

I love me some Almond milk. Again, you have to be careful about brands. You’re ideally looking for ones with just almonds and water as the main ingredients; but it’s generally still better than your average cow’s milk.

It’s got a great amount of Calcium and Vitamin E & D. Great for your skin, and your mood.

Water

Duh, you know water is good for you. I try not to drink my town’s tap water without filtering, it’s a bit over-treated. But when all else fails, even slightly weird water is better for you than chugging soda. (Unless it’s salt water, or stagnant water. Don’t drink stagnant or water you can’t see through!)

PS: Yup, I drink coffee and tea. I loves me some tea.

It’s nearly Friday. Cheer up kittens!
