| Coconut water is a living superfood that will invigorate your yoga practice. For serious. |
I’ve heard that if you were stranded on a desert island and all you could find were coconut trees, you’d be just fine surviving. Now, granted, I suppose what’s left out is that you’d also need the knowledge of how to use them, but coconut trees can be used for food, drink, medicine, material for building homes, boats, Jay-Z pimpin’ yachts, fishing gear, rope, nets, baskets, bowls, bed mats, clothes, and I’m just getting started.
Coconut water is a superfood that could take on influenza, dysentery, salmonella, E-coli, or cholera just by strengthening the body’s systems with its blend of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and enzymes. Think of all it does for you when you’re not keeling over in pain.
It’s a living food, and I mean that literally. It is living tissue of the coconut palm. It provides the tree the ability to sprout and grow taller than an acro-yoga tower. It’s even similar enough to human bodily fluid that it can be used both intravenously and orally as a rehydration tool. If I had the tools, I’d totally sip the stuff directly to my veins.
What’s more is that buying young thai coconuts is actually cheaper than getting it canned, and far more delicious too. At the grocery near me, a young thai coconut comes out to be two bucks where as the can is closer to three.
Both yield similar amounts of liquid, and the coconut comes with delicious flesh to be eaten straight or used in many amazing recipes. They’re easier to open than you might think. Just check out the thousands of youtube videos.
And plus, how often do you get to use a machete in an urban setting?
If you’ve got a vigorous yoga practice, this stuff is your prana-revitalizing, spanda-surging, life blood to carry you through even the sweatiest of classes.
