What Can You Drink on Paleo?

There are more drinks than just water, soda, and fruit juices in this world!

Tea is a great option on Paleo, and it’s especially great if you make you own fresh tea from various herbs.

I’ve had mint tea in Middle Eastern restaurants many times before, and I finally got around to making it at home the other day. It’s soooo easy!

The most important step is buying fresh mint leaves. Once you have that, just wash the leaves gently in cold water to get rid of any dirt on it, and then add it to a pot of boiling water. Around 5 leaves for every cup of water is a good amount. Then just let it sit and steep for a while. You can also cool the tea to make a refreshing iced mint tea for the summer.

    Hi Louise,
    Great blog, thanks for sharing. It’s true, you can make your own teas from various herbs. I was in a restaurant in Chicago and ordered oregano tea from their menu…some people might like this.
    Another thing…grow your own herbs if you can. Nothing could be fresher!
