Meatless Monday: Thai Coconut Water

Here we are, another Monday. This Monday isn't just any Monday though, it's the start of Thanksgiving week. Have you put your order in for our catering services to lessen your kitchen stress? Even if you have, we're sure you've still got plenty of running around to do. Don't let your health fall by the way side this week!

Whether you're running to the store, running on a treadmill, or running to the airport be sure to keep your energy up by staying hydrated and fueling up on healthy carbs. Need a source of both? We've got your back. Our Thai Coconuts are full of electrolytes, potassium, natural sugars, and vitamin C. If you opt for the whole coconut, instead of just the water, you can scoop out the "meat" which is full of good fats and vitamins. Due to its hydrating properties and high levels of vitamin C coconut water is considered by many to support healthy elasticity in the skin. Our young coconuts have a sweeter taste than the water you might find bottled in stores while actually being lower in sugar! And since they are freshly cracked they contain no chemicals or preservatives unlike coconut water bottled and sold commercially. 

Potassium is vital to the balance of sodium in the body. If you are feeling bloated from water retention or are experiencing muscle cramps, coconut water should be your go to. The potassium aids in flushing out excess water by removing excess sodium from the cells. This flushing of excess water, along with the high levels of antioxidants found in fresh coconut water, is part of what makes this beverage a natural detoxifier. Many muscle cramps are the result of an imbalance or lack of electrolytes such as potassium in the body but they can also be caused by dehydration. Luckily our coconuts have you covered in both instances. Potassium is also important for heart health. We know high stress holidays can get your blood pressure rising! Luckily this versatile mineral aides in lowering blood pressure by regulating sodium levels which results in improved kidney function and fluid regulation. 

Not all coconut water is the shade of pink pictured. The level of antioxidants vary from coconut to coconut and one high in polyphenols could turn pink due to a reaction with the fruit enzymes. The variation in color of our coconut water lets you know just how fresh it is. 

Don't let your self care get away from you this week. Come into P.S. & Co. for a freshly cracked coconut and let your worries melt away one sip at a time!
