Happy Summer LOVES ♥
Today reached 90 degrees and I was craving ALL things summery. I never crave heavy food in the heat- is anyone else like that? Bring on the iced tea and the fresh fruits and vegetables.
One of my summer must haves: Coconut Water! ♥
Harmless Harvest Coconut Water is my newest ADDICTION! I never understood the coconut water fad. I mean- drinking out of a coconut on an island sounds pretty bomb- but the cartons of coconut water always grossed me out. AND recently I found out they did for a good reason! Brands like Zico & Vita Coco are heated at a high temperature killing off all of the nutrients and the delicious taste. This brand- Harmless Harvest is completely raw, organic and literally the most delicious water ever. I am craving it now just typing about it…and I had one earlier today! Coconut water is super hydrating and gives you a little bit of natural sugar- which is GOOD, especially after a work out.
♥ Coconut water has many other health benefits:
♥ It contains 13% of your daily potassium in just one cup!
♥ It contains 14% magnesium (the anti-stress, anti-anxiety mineral!)…I will chat about this one later 😉
♥ It is full of antioxidants- especially this brand! Sometimes you even get pink water which is naturally occurring due to it’s antioxidant properties
♥ It’s super hydrating
♥ It contains a compound called cytokinins which slow down aging!
Need any more convincing?
