Week 13 - Coconut Water
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Last week I was listening to SparkPeople Radio, and Karen and Lily were taste-testing coconut water. One of them was trying it for the first time, and I decided that would be my next "new thing" of 2013. I went to our local small-town food co-op and they were out of coconut water, but one of the volunteers said she liked it and liked her husband to drink it since he was always low on potassium, so she'd order some. The truck came in on Thursday and I stopped in and bought 3 cans of Amy & Brian brand All Natural Coconut Juice with Lime. Quite spendy at $3.29 for a 17.5 oz can (2 servings), but our health is worth it, right??? It tasted a little more bland than I expected. It actually reminded me of my first taste of citrus Gatorade, and I'm not much of a Gatorade fan. It's said that coconut water has some great health benefits, so maybe I'll drink it now and then. For taste, I like plain ol' water with a splash of lemon juice better. It was definitely worth giving it a try, though.
