Tasty Tuesday: Benefits of Drinking Coconut Water

Dear Wonderful Reader,get-attachment.aspx 2Lately I have been consuming a considerable amount of Coconut Water. Mainly, because its so delicious and incredibly refreshing. Also, after doing a little research, I found out many health benefits to this magic potion. Feel free to make it a part of your daily routine.

Why Drink Coconut Water?

1. Accelerates Digestion

since it contains lots of fiber.

2. Lowers Blood Pressure

since it contains an ample amount of electrolytes.

3. Boosts Hydration

since it contains 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per serving.

4. Helps in Weight Loss

It’s rich nature makes you feel full and suppresses your appetite without having a high caloric-count.

5.  Clears out Skin

it’s rich, nutritious nature detoxifies and moisturize the skin.

6. Cures bad Hangovers

it will calm your stomach and replaces the electrolytes that departed your body due to vomiting or  urination.

7. Bursting with Nutritions 

since it contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and sodium.

8.  Harmonious with Human Blood

This is a very complicated point to explain, but pretty much Coconut water could be used to save lives when its being used medically.

P.S. Feel free to substitute your current snack or dessert routine with a serving of Coconut Water because it fills you up pretty nicely and it’s also sweet. So Sweet!!

P.S.S. The “Naked” brand could be quiet over priced, so feel free to get any cheaper brands, or better yet buy a coconut =]

Tasty Tuesday: An Apple with a Twist

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I’m sure I am not the only one who will try to talk you into eating an apple a day, as I’m sure you may remember vivid episodes of your childhood where your mother nagged, and nagged on about eating that very one apple, or maybe she didn’t. Either way, I have done the research for you and eating an apple a day is extremely healthy and just so good for you. I strongly support the popular belief, or rather saying, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away“. But, in doing so, you and I can’t escape the inevitable, which is that apples are boring fruits and they are kind of tasteless and I really want to know what attracted Steve Jobs to apples so much. But, I digress!

Without further ado, I present to you the transformation of a boring apple to a somewhat healthy dessert (yes, just keep telling yourself that it’s a dessert until you believe it). You will need the following

a. Any apple of your choice

b. Any drizzle “sauce” of your choice such as caramel, chocolate, strawberry sauce or even condensed milk. I used my Dark Chocolate Dreams, which is blended with peanut butter, which contains healthy fats. Then, I microwave it until it reaches the appropriate drizzling temperature, since it’s not a sauce.

c. diced almonds/peanuts/granola (optional).

Enjoy…

P.S. Drizzle wisely!

P.S.S. Presentation is key! It’s necessary to make your plain-Jane apple look like a million bucks because it makes it look more convincing to your brain.

I absolutely loved this little fruit bouquet. It was as delicious as it’s gorgeous. My best friend had it delivered to me as a late graduation gift. Also loved the lil vase it came in; it now sets very nicely on my dresser.This absolutely made my day ❤ ❤

Over the weekend me and my mom hung out at an outdoor plaza for mother-daughter bonding time. We went to Barnes & Nobles for a while, and then shopped/browsed the stores for fun. After our long, fun day we got hungry and I suggested we go to CPK. My mom LOVED this Spicy Chipotle Chicken pizza, and that is really impressive cause my mom is a REAL picky eater. She thought the cheese was excellent and the pan couldn’t be any better, and she loved the toppings.

If you got a sweet tooth, then the Belgian Chocolate Soufflé Cake is a must-eat at CPK. Can’t describe it cause words won’t do it any justice. Try it for yourself ASAP!
P.s. They also serve it with ice-cream ❤
