A Green Coconut Vendor over the Beach

A Green Coconut Vendor over the Beach
Coconut vendors chop out the juice pretty fast right? Have you ever tried taking the water or pulp out of a coconut? It requires some practice actually. Make it a habit to drink coconut water instead of bottled carbonated drinks or synthetic fruit flavored juices when you're outside your home. It may not be so chilled, but it'll be the right thing for your body. Best thing about coconut water is, despite its richness with potassium, antioxidants and other micro-nutrients, it contains surprisingly low levels of carbohydrates, calories and fat. It's interesting to know, during World war II, coconut water was used as a substitute for intravenous saline!

  1. A tender coconut may not cost as much as a Pepsi bottle and is far, far better in any way for health.
