Coconut Water 🥥

I have a NEW way of cracking into my favorite drink!

A few years ago my kids gave me a coconut opener tool so I could have the freshest coconut water and I LOVED it and used it! I do love the taste of a young coconut with no additional ingredients 😍

That worked better than NOT being able to crack open a coconut, but a few weeks ago I found an upgrade!

Watch the video to see it in action. On the hot summer days, I use the CocoNUT tool and enjoy my favorite refreshing drink straight from the source!

So is coconut water good for you? YES  

Is coconut water bad for you? YES 😆

Coconuts are so ironic and that’s another reason I LOVE them! If you want to get really confused, google “is coconut water good or bad”

Yes I believe it’s healthy – it is an rehydration drink because of its source of carbohydrates and electrolytes (potassium, sodium, and magnesium), but it’s also a diarrhetic that can dehydrate you, so…… don’t drink too much!

In conclusion, what I’ve learned over the last 20 years of being a wellness bitch is that we can, and often do, take these “healthy” things to extreme, and then it becomes bad.

So, to conclude…

  1. I drink coconut water because I like it 😊 = good!
  2. I’m a total nerd because I bring young coconuts to parties.
  3. I’ve found that adding a little rum is also good 😄

HEALTHY FATS that reduce BODY FAT

This is a list that
put out on foods that contain healthy fats that can 

“quell your appetite, cutting the number of calories you eat in a day, while improving your heart health and stoking your metabolism.”

Grass-Fed Beef  naturally leaner, fewer calories, and higher omega 3’s compared to conventional meat


Olive Oil breaks down fats in the body

 

Coconut  battles bacteria and improves cholesterol scores

Dark Chocolate  “contains pure cocoa butter, a source of digestion-slowing stearic acid. Milk chocolate’s cocoa butter content, on the other hand, is tempered with added butter fat and, as a result, passes more quickly through your GI tract. Because dark chocolate takes more time to process, it staves off hunger and helps you lose weight.”

Almond Butter  contain a compound that limits the amount of fat absorbed by the body

I would also like to add:
Avocados and Flaxseeds

EAT UP.  
IT’S GOOD FOR YOU.
