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 =]


Wonderful Wednesday: Pretty Pills & Other Disasters

Dear Wonderful Reader,

get-attachment-1.aspxI’d like to share with you some of my daily dietary supplements that help fortify my body and help me look and feel wonderful. I usually just take all of them in the morning, so I don’t forget them. Then, I eat  my breakfast or a piece of fruit. I take 2 capsules of Fish Oil, and B12, and one capsule of Biotin. The B12 are just supplements for energy and they are made in the form of raspberry gummy bears; they are so tasty and they’re a lot of fun! I take the Biotin to nourish my hair, nails, and skin. And I take the Fish Oil because it helps to prevent against heart disease and other diseases.

The pretty pink and purple gummies are Calcium supplements for bone support. I don’t take them, but my mother does and she thinks they’re absolutely delicious! Also, before starting my B12 gummies, I used to take MuliVites by VitaFusion and they were super tasty and tasted just like the real gummy bears, if not better.

All the brands featured above are affordable and they are a good way to stay nutritious in today’s busy world. Though, be careful as to not over-take them, I only take those 3 types in the morning, and if I wanna add a new type then I substitute with an old one. And please, do consult your doctor before taking them.

Stay Healthy…


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).




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.
