Sorry for the lack of posts recently! I have been super busy and my mum has been in town so I haven’t had time to blog. Tonight, before The Voice starts, I am going to post some updates. Green tea in hand, the next 30 mins is blog time!
Coconut is natures Gatorade!! Its tasty, nourishing, hydrating, full of electrolytes and is a quick and easy drink for when you are on the run.
There are numerous health benefits that coconut water can provide you with. To start with it is full of calcium, magnesium and potassium, it is a pure liquid (the second after water) and is 99% fat free and low in sugar and carbs. It is said Coconut water aids digestion and has great anti-fungal and anti-macrobial properties that can help cure diseases.
Why I love coconuts:
I love coconuts because they are so versatile! For afternoon tea I just made a green smoothie with coconut water and a bunch of other yummy goodies. You can use the flesh of the coconut to make yoghurt, to thicken dishes or simple scoop it out and eat it with a spoon - Delish! I also use coconut oil to cook in my stirfry’s, I add it to my carob and chocolate slices and it makes a great all over body moisturiser.
Where you can get them:
Coconuts have become readily available and you can now purchase them in most of your local supermarkets like Coles, Woolworths, Thomas Dux and About Life. You can also buy them in crates from Suveran on Bondi Road, which will save you some $$.
