    Instead of beer...ideas?

    Primal Fuel
    Ok, it's summer. I work hard, outside, a lot.

    Coming indoors to a frosty beer sounds great. But I cut out alcohol, for the most part, a year ago.

    What do you go for instead?

    Iced tea comes to mind. Or water with cucumber or citrus.

    What else?

    How about a giant frosty mug full of self control?

    Um, self control isn't the issue, Chairdr. At peril of sounding arrogant, I have more self control than anyone I know.

    Note that I nixed the alcohol over a year ago. I drink only occasionally, at social events (and I'm not the social-event type.)

    I'm not looking for excuses -- just for some interesting summer-drink ideas.

    I go with a giant glass of iced tea myself... or cold water right out of the hose is another option...

    I have a jasmine white/ green/ oolong tea that I make and cool. That with ice and cucumbers makes a damn fine summer drink after mowing the yard.

    Iced tea (and in my new apartment I'll be able to make sun tea, yay!) or ice-cold water. Normally I put a bit of lemon or lime juice in it. Sometimes I'll have an iced coffee, but not often.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I've gotten so that I can drink water now. For the longest time before going primal I wouldn't drink plain water ever. I'd have to put lemon in water if nothing else was available. Iced tea would work for me too though.

    If you do dairy, goat milk and homemade kefir from the same are both quite tasty. The kefir does have that slight effervescence that seems to be so satisfying.
