    Tea would be amazing. I checked every brand they have here (Cyprus) and the ingredients list always starts the same:

    "Water, sugar..."

    Is there some reason you need to buy everything you drink pre made?

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Yes. I live in hotels. I've been traveling for more than two years straight.

    When I travel I still manage to make my own teas just fine... I carry herbal and mint tea bags, use the coffee maker to make hot water, steep the bags, then chill it in the refrigerator for iced teas the next day.

    You can steep like 4 tea bags in a short glass at once to make it concentrated then add more water and ice to taste later when you want to drink it.

    No problem. *shrug*

    Drink water if you're thirsty and eat the damn orange if you're hungry,
    it's that simple.

    Wow, 2 yrs in hotels I should think what you drink would be the easiest thing to make primal, it's the food I'd worry about. Do you ever eat home cooked meals?

    So why are you focusing on what you drink? Is it because you have more control over that? I'd be more concerned about the foods that you're eating in restaurants, most use questionable oils, add sugar and flour to sauces w/o mentioning it on the menu, use commercially raised meats, and veggies not to mention the way the foods are handled and prepared. Trust me I know from experience, I was a chef for quite a long time. Even in "nice" restaurants they do things I would never do at home. I can't tell you how many walk ins I've been in with leftovers that neither had labels or dates on them and they were still being used.

    I'd rather buy mineral water and squeeze some lime in it and prepare my own food at least then I know what I'm eating.

    I'm trying to do my best but preparing my own meals is out of the question at the moment. I'm 34, very healthy, thin, fit... for the time being I don't have to go extreme. But when I'm settled down, I will make my own food for sure.
