The Fountain of Youth??
Coconut water is all the rage right now. I completely understand why. It has more potassium than a banana, four other naturally occurring electrolytes, only 60 calories, and no fat or added sugar. It is low in acidity and high in potent antioxidants. It literally is a miracle drink. I feel better after I chug a carton of it.
I first heard about it in a magazine (did I mention I am a magazine junkie too?). I read that Gisele drinks it daily. Well, if its good enough for Gisele, its good enough for me! I went out to Whole Foods and bought a little juice box of it and YUCK! Hated it. I learned later that it is best served very cold(even over ice). Now Kevin and I drink this magical elixir all of the time. It gives me energy, makes me feel happy, makes my skin look nice and Ive grown to love the taste. Its also the best thing to drink right before bed if you are worried about a hangover!
