Vodka Paleo and CrossFit

I have teens asking if they should drink Vodka because they have heard Paleo/CrossFit people say it is the healthiest drink. Where is this coming from?

Re: Vodka Paleo and CrossFit

It's coming from kids trying to find an excuse to drink, mayhaps?

Re: Vodka Paleo and CrossFit

If sewage was PALEO!!, would people drink it?

What has happened to common sense???

Btw, I am not equating alcohol to sewage. Alcohol in the right quantities and at the right time is awesome. Sewage is never awesome.

Re: Vodka Paleo and CrossFit

There's a big difference between "least bad" and "good for you."

Re: Vodka Paleo and CrossFit

in regards to the paleo part, obviously man alcohol is made from grains, so the paleo crowd would learn towards drinks that are not grain based. i know RobbW haid said in the past that if you were going to go out and party you would be better to go with nachos and tequilla instead of pizza and beer. however, i think it was a "if you have to, this is better than that", not intended as "this is good for you". some people are going to drink no matter what. even teenage kids. doesn't make it right.

I'm a little biased, but I think Sangria is Paleo. Lots of fruit in it. LOL.
