How to Open a Coconut

There may be nothing better than the cool, sweet, refreshing juice of a young coconut on a hot summer day. Although you can find canned and bottled coconut water at the health food store, nothing beats getting it straight from the source. Cracking a coconut can seem like a bit of a challenge, unless you know the secret of how to easily open one! Let me show you how it’s done:

Coconut water is an excellent source of natural electrolytes, so it makes for an excellent sports drink, without all of the extra artificial sweeteners and colors that are added to most of the sports drinks out there. It has a naturally sweet delicious taste. No extra sugar needed! 
The flesh of the coconut is delicious and nutritious! Some folks are still scared of eating coconut because it’s a saturated fat. Get over it!!!! Eating coconut will actually help you to lose weight! 
Coconut balances thyroid function (which will help you to stay slim and energetic)
Coconut is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal because of the lauric acid it contains. Guess what else contains lauric acid? Mother’s milk. 
Coconut is rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s). These medium chain fatty acids are used by the body instantly to boost energy and are never stored as fat. Athletes supplement with MCT’s to improve performance. 
If you haven’t already, I highly recommend adding coconut to your health and weight management program. 
Yours in Health,
