We’re not talking specially colored labels or price tags here of course. We mean the biggest health benefit with the fewest carbs and additives. The pinnacle, not surprisingly, is red wine. Research has supported time and again the impressive polyphenol power of red wine.
Another bonus with red? Resveratrol – that super antioxidant, able to combat cancer and reduce signs of aging, among other feats.
I used to drink a heavy IPA most days pre-primal, but now I just don't like it. I get a bit bloaty, but it's the aftertaste that grosses me out. Red wine, on the other hand...very drinkable. Although all alcoholic drinks seem more "fumey" or volatile now, and generally not as appealing.
If you make home brew beer, dont put any sugar in , the flavour or wort in the can has sugar in it and this still creates alcohol to the equivelant of a light to medium beer.
Ana-Tane = (Cave Man)
Same with me...used to be a homebrewer and big craft beer afficianado, no more...bloated and feel awful after a heavy beer or two. The hard cider market is a good place to look for tasty alternatives.
Beer is pretty much the only source of gluten left in my diet but I've never had any noticable problems with it. I drink about 2/3 beers a day on average.
I recently heard Nora Gedgaudas claim even trace amounts of gluten should be avoided for good health, does anyone know if there's any truth to this?
