  • What to drink

    Sugar is bad, artificial sweetness is worse. At work during the week I’m ok as I constantly drink hot/warm tea usually green or an herbal tisane types and my protein shake. Weekend mornings I do a large coffee with heavy cream, but it’s all the other times I have issues with, yes I do drink plain water a lot, (even add just a splash of lemon just occasionally, if desperate) but I want something simple and quick with some good flavor to it and no crabs or calories. Otherwise it’s just to dam easy, convent and temping to pore a little packet of chemicals in bottle add water and presto instant yummy drink.

      I like to put a splash of wine in a glass of ice water. Sparkling water is good too.

        Why not brew up a pitcher of herbal tea and keep it in the fridge?

          Tried that with mixed results ... when and if there is even room for it, usual bottom shelf has 3-4gals milk plus a few bottles of fruit jucie for the 3 little guys, then someone else always seemd to drink most of it. Hence the need for “instant” easy something….

          ie I come in from outside doing whatever need/want a drink and can make it supper quick and easy on the spot drink it down and get on with my day.

          Yes its sad but the SAD world really has nailed the uber quick easy convent angle of things.

            What is wrong with water? The more sweet things you consume, the more sweet things you will want to consume.
            The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

              try sour instead of sweet, i find it much more thirst quenching. I'm in the UK but presume you can get similar cooking ingredients in the US. In the cooking section of your supermarket, probably near the cake mix section (don't look at them) you should be able to find lime and lemon juice concentrate. It should only contain lime juice concentrate,lime oil , and a preservative (usually potassium metabisulphite or sodium metabisulphite) I always go for potassium over sodium but its personal choice there.

                Maybe a Sodastream? It's a home carbonator and they also sell unsweetened flavors (called "MyWater"). It takes about 10-15 seconds to prepare 1 liter.

                If you're on the road, almost any place that sells soda should sell unsweetened iced tea or flavored seltzer. I also consider Zevia and Steaz sodas okay once in a while (sweetened with erythritol).

                  I do drink water most of the time (I'm one of those try to drink a gallon a day of it types) is just that It is boring bland and I like a change and something with a bit of taste once in a while and atm my fallback is the past was to just to add lemon/lime juice or concentrate (even sometimes just a splash of other fruit juices) but only having two or a few other options totally sucks ... when there are dozens and dozens of various flavor pack options out there for everyone else... YES I mean I could just make and store something or on a rear occasion have a chem pack as part of my 10% or whatever just was hope for some good alterative. Yea yea yea I know Grok would have just stuck his head in a stream, hack a branch of a maple tree to drank the sap or chugged down the blood of the wildebeest but….

                      Everyone else is killing themselves with the food they eat. They are lost. You are on the right track, just tighten it up. Soon enough you will stop craving these things.

                        Yes and No … ok I got real good at suicide by bagel in my 9 month sojourn away from paleo (it was cheap, easy, satisfying and deadly).. but Last spring summer when I was doing great and basically only drinking water outside of My tea at work the craving for something quick simple and tasty was still there.

                        Time to ramble…

                        Guess it gets hard to constantly battle and sailing agents the wind when your own past/issues society, family, basically everyone around you is doing something different and your options are limit to things that are much more complex and time consuming …

                        Don’t know .. as I’m getting back into eating right yet again; I’m analyzing some the reasons I burned out and fell away last fall and one of the biggest on I have found is conveyance .. I needed to shop separate, cook separate, eat different, prepare food and store them all of which seem to be in constant conflict with the rest of the house, throw in a little work stress and random life crises-of-the-moment things and as always .. ME, my workouts, my eating, my whatever gets drop as I “have to” deal with everything else first and honestly this has repeated over and over and over .. I do great and lose a bunch of weight then bam wall - I just don’t seem to be able to maintain the emotions/spiritual/force-of-will energy need to fight the world and myself

                        so .. yea anything that make this simpler, easer, more convent when I don’t have time of energy to think/plan/work at it and more able to fit in “normally” (ie even if that’s really totally dysfunctional) with those around help tremendously.

                          I understand that you want to be 100% primal. I also understand that it is difficult. What I do not understand is what you are expecting to hear. Either put in the effort and get the results or don't put in the effort and get different "results". You can do it if you want to do it.

                            What I was hoping was someone(s) would have neat, great, novel; interesting options for some tasty low cal, low carb primal things to drink that I might not have ever considered or thought of.

                            – yes I can “put in the effort”, “suck it up” and just “drink the water” but as I also mention that hasn’t work out so well in the past and I can’t see it working indefinitely every day forever going forward at least not “for me”.

                              What's wrong with seltzer water? Polar vanilla flavored seltzer water tastes just like cream soda, except without the sugar or artificial sweetener. It's my favorite. I don't even miss regular or diet soda anymore. And now when I try a diet soda, it leaves a weird aftertaste in my mouth that I don't like.
