Coconut Water

Coconut Water

I woke up today to the most beautiful day I have seen in several months. When I went outside and felt the warm air, it felt like the most beautiful day, also. I made it through winter here in the mountains, again. My second winter. Last year it snowed up until the end of May, so I will not discount the fact that there may be some extreme spring weather changes ahead, I will only count my blessings today. A long morning walk by the river was exactly what Duke and I needed.

In the last few years, I discovered coconut water, via one or both of my sisters. It is high in potassium – way more than one banana and other electrolytes our body needs; sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. In warmer weather it is great for hydration because it hydrates our body faster than water and it is totally natural, not full of chemicals, sugar and artificial colors that sports drinks are made of. The benefits go on and on, it’s good for men as it stimulates the reproductive organs (as in Viagra) and increases the libido in women. I know that it’s good the next morning after having a few beers the night before to bring me back to life, soon followed by my pasta carbonara.

If you haven’t tried it, I fully recommend it. It’s light and refreshing, it is not a taste that is very common but it’s fairly easy to get accustomed to. Cheers!!
