An Embarrassment of Coconuts-  Coco Vita is tired, Costa Rican au natural is wired.  Loved by health  nuts and Hollywood royalty, coconut water is the "new" health drink. It's almost as good as a blood transfusion, It slows down ageing, smooths your skin; regulates blood pressur, blood sugar  and  cholesterol;  and it's good for digestive  health.  Every port of call, I make a habit of drinking some. I'm up to 12 today. That;s right- T-W-E-L_V-E! It helps to speak Spanglish-- only $1 a piece instead of $5. (I'm on a liver/gallbladder detox)

Coconut water is the purest liquid on earth, second  only to H20. It's anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. This is one of those rare super foods. I am taking The Cure.

Puts an Infinite Smile on my face

 It is full of electrolytes, calcium and magnesium. An average size coconut has more potassium (at about 294 mg) than most sports drinks (117 mg). It stimulates metabolism. Coconut Water has more food value than whole milk; is a Natural Isotonic Beverage - The same level we have in our blood; and, it contains lauric acid, which is present in human mother's milk. Ma Ma Mia!

Bora Bora, Tahiti

I always look for fresh coconuts in all the ports of call




In 2009, I blogged:


Sailing Into St Thomas USVI



After five days of Pasta and Pizza  on MSC (The Godfather Cruise line) crossing the Atlantic for this re positioning cruise, I feel like a carbo-loading marathoner. The favorite food around here is "Seconds".

Eddie Spaghetti----This "strategy" used when I was an endurance athlete to maximize the storage of glycogen (or energy) in my muscles, doesn't do that much good stuck on The Godfather ship. Definitely has some effects on the metabolism.
So I had to de-sludge with some coconut magic water . Now I am rebooted and suited... later... Generation RX---The Doctor delivers some more coconut magic water: I 've had 4 of them so far today.
