Coconut Water

If you haven’t yet noticed, one of the latest trend at your local grocery store yet is coconut water. Coconut water is extracted from young green coconuts before the coconut ages and turns into a brown coconut when the water turns into the hard white meat we commonly think of when referring to the inside of a coconut. Coconut water is extremely popular in the tropics for its refreshing sweet water flavor. It is low in calories, fat-free, and loaded with natural potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium.


The naturally occurring electrolytes in coconut water make it the perfect beverages to keep you hydrated during or after a vigorous workout. Unlike sports drinks, coconut water is 100% and contains no added sugar or artificial flavors. There are a variety of brands of coconut on the market, even flavored options such as coconut water with pineapple or tangerine! I recently bought some coconut water from Jewel and plan to take some with me on my 7 mile run tomorrow to keep me hydrated in the Chicago heat!
