I'm With Coco

Mama SoFine tipped me off to the wonders of coconut oil years ago. And I still use it! Sometimes I even eat it! Now my new thing is coconut water, which is the clear water at the center of a young coconut. Not to be confused with coconut milk which is the result of pressing the flesh of the coconut to produce a white milky liquid. Coconut water has tons of electrolytes, the stuff you need to quickly re-hydrate and balance your blood pH. In other words, it's natures little hangover cure which also happens to be fat and cholesterol free. I've tried every brand and have settled on Vita Coco which has the best flavor and is most similar to fresh coconut water. Frustrated by the per unit price, I've decided to take it up a notch and order by the flat. ($74)
