All the Alcoholic Drinks You Can Have While on the Paleo Diet

I'm the Community Editor at SheKnows. My perfect day would be camped in the middle of nowhere, reading an excellent book and writing something true.

#2/14:

Organic, sulfite-free red wine

#2/14:

Organic, sulfite-free red wine

Organic, sulfite-free red wine tends to be semi-safe ground for the paleo diet. Unlike beer, it doesn’t contain gluten. A moderate amount is good for your heart and can lower your blood pressure, among other reported health benefits. Sulfites can cause more intense hangovers in some people, which is why sulfite-free wine is recommended. And reds contain tannins and resveratrol, where much of the antioxidant benefit is derived from — whites do not.
